GIVE IT BACK OBAMA. . .Tug of War over Peace Prize?

Obama wants to keep the Peace Prize

Vladimir Zhirinovsky of Russia said this week, concerning the peace prize awarded to President Obama shortly after his inauguration, “ This is another flagrant intervention in the internal affairs of an independent state.”

Zhirinovsky entitled the statement he issued with these words, “Deny Obama the Nobel Prize!” Zhirinovsky is the vice chairman of the Russian legislature’s lower house.

And in Bolivia, President Morales is also upset and said, “How is it possible to give the Nobel Peace Prize to someone who has launched an invasion, a bombing? It is a violation, an assault, an aggression.”

BUT, Obama ain’t letting go!

He said this, “When I received that award, I specifically said there was an irony because I was already dealing with two wars. So I am accustomed to this contradiction of being both a commander-in-chief but also someone who aspires to peace.”

Obama also said concerning Libya, “we’re not invading a country, we’re not acting alone – we’re acting under a mandate issued by the United Nations Security Council in an unprecedented fashion and with unprecedented speed.”

And finally he said, “I think the American people don’t see any contradiction in somebody who cares about peace also wanting to make sure that people aren’t butchered because of a dictator who wants to cling to power.”

Then he shoved the peace prize under his coat and ran from the room. JUST KIDDING!

      He should give it back but, of course, he shouldn't have gotten it to begin with.

      I loved the cartoon of NObama in the baby car seat. I wonder if he would resign if we promised to move him to a booster seat.

      Great Hub!!!

      His receiving the peace prize was equivalent to a new employee receiving a performance bonus before he even reported to work. They must be having a hard time finding anyone to award these prizes to.

      I guess it was wishful thinking, given in anticipation of the messiah's rise to the thrown.

      Did I say something really ugly here???

      No, you didn't say anything ugly here. That doesn't mean you won't get some very nasty responses since there are some very uptight liberals here on HubPages.

      He never should've gotten the prize in the first place and he certainly should get back. I think your hub explained all very well. Voted up.

      thank you. It all seems rather silly doesn't it? He got the peace prize before he ever did anything.

      Personally, I don't care what he does with it. It really lost its significance a long time ago. Maybe Gaddafi will win it next time.

      Yes, if Arafat can get a Peace Prize then I guess Obama is in good company with him.

      The Nobel Piece Prize has become a joke any war. Let him keep it to show how he fits in with all the other crazies.

      Keep on hubbing!

      The Nobel is now awarded to far-left loons by a bunch of far-left loons, so who cares?

      Just the far left loons I guess.

      After they awarded this to Smirksalot, it became totally meaningless. He had done nothing to earn it. He should have declined acceptance but being the narcissist he is...

      I don't think I need to finish that sentence.

      They should really revoke the danged thing.

      He should give it back...He has done NOTHING to deserve it at that Early Stage in his Presidency...It Tarnishes what it is suppose to stand for and how it is Rightly earned. I agree with The Frog Prince, it's become meaningless.

      I have a sinking feeling that Obama knows exactly what position he is putting Israel in by allowing the Muslim Brotherhood to take over first Egypt, and soon Lybya. That will surround Israel by people that want to destroy that country and everyone in it. But I doubt if Israel will go without fight, so that could mean WWIII. Who knows what side Obama will put our country on. Will we still be friends with Israel, or will be join the muslims and help wipe Israel off the map. What a mess.

      mslizzee - Obama has tossed our best Allie under the bus and did it early on in his administration. Obama needs to be impeached.

      I agree. Perhaps that will come after the next election.
