Leaders around the globe are calling for just that! Personally I don't think it should have ever been awarded to him after only 3 weeks in office. Even the code pink founder agrees with me!
Certainly not because of what's happening in Libya. It's not like he started a war or anything. He probably shouldn't have gotten it in the first place though.
I think that prize has become irrelevant anyhow since it has become so political.
I agree that the Nobel prize is meaningless because they award it for political purposes. It was meaningless when it was awarded to Obama because the circumstances were so laughable. But it is telling and actually somewhat pathetic that Shiny wants to hang on to it.
Remind me again what he did to deserve it in the first place.....
I think maybe he actually received a Nobel Peas prize, we know how much Michelle likes her veggies.
Yes. It was preposterous to award someone for what they might do anyway.
I don't think anyone that holds a political position, especially our president, should be able to accept rewards, gratuities, gifts while in office. He is supposed to be doing a job for our nation and what DID he do to earn such a prize? Better yet, if he did do something of great import was it for our country or someone elses? Seems the Nobel is handed out like candy these days.

Led by an overwhelming majority of American citizens, with predominantly New Yorkers on the front lines, picketers in front of the White House succeeded in making Mr. Obama vow to return his erroneously-gotten Prize. He said now he understands that it ain't okay to cause chaos WITHIN America...

I can't wait to read about how big of a joke the (Norwegian) Nobel Prize selecting committee is and that since nazi Germany loved Hitler and so many love Obama, it logically makes Obama Hitler.Can you people be proud for once that we have a great leader? He is not perfect, nobody is, but for god's...

Does the EU deserve to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize?Those crazy Norwegians awarded it to Obama for nothing, now they've awarded it to the EU when they're going through a big financial crisis. It's become so meaningless.

Should they take away the Nobel Peace Prize from Obama?The New York Times article said that Obama personally handles the decisions regarding the killings and assasinations when it comes to the war on terrorism. He doesn't sound like the ideal recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize.

The greatest threat to mankind is Nuclear war and the lack of protection for our natural environment.I'm happier to see Al Core get a Nobel peace prize, than to watch Obama get one for raising the war budget to the highest level ever. What do you think?
