    While it was certainly premature to award the prize, it certainly wasn’t any sillier than the Supreme Court awarding Bush the presidency when he LOST the popular election. At least this is a “do no harm” action.

    After Bush, practically anyone would deserve the Nobel.

    But seriously, Obama deserves it just for taking on the huge mess Bush left, and working to make our country respectable in a dignified manner.

    (I watched his whole speech and could not imagine Bush even attempting to speak with such class.)

    Popular vote has no standing in the Constitution …duh.

    benbrilling, I didn’t like Bush, I don’t currently like Bush, and I don’t picture any time in the future when I will like Bush.

    However that doesn’t mean a Peace prize should be given to someone for “Not being Bush”. In that case every President we will ever have in the future deserves one.

    I agree with you that the person in the office had to take on the staggering level of incompetence, arrogance, and self-indulgence that was left behind. But that does not mean that Peace is being achieved or even worked on. If there was a prize for cleaning up after another’s mess…sure. If there was a prize for charismatic speaking,….sure. But Peace is about creating a situation where there is no fighting -or moving toward it- and he hasn’t done it. I’d rather see the folks who protested the election in Iran get the prize. Given the chance I’d see the prize go to the guy who stood in front of the tanks in Tianemen Square every year for a straight decade.

    The ‘toon got it right.

    Obama should get an award for charismatic speech. If only he could be trusted and respected the Constitution.

    I especially like his take on the “negative Bill of Rights” and how the Constituion is “fundamentally flawed” (because he believes it should have a provision for “redistributive change” ie “share the wealth”).

    ^^ “We’re an empire now …. we create our own reality.” This comment proves Rove was right for those too complacent or dumb to understand the consequences when lies become reality. Kiss freedom goodbye.

    churchill, you’ve totally misunderstood what Obama meant, which is entirely in line with other Constitutional scholars, and indeed a lot of libertarian thought – the Bill of Rights provides a lot of rights by banning things, too. That’s negative.

    I think Ralph Nader would have been better. (And I have no interest in his policies).

    Ralph Nader wrote a book about a car he never drove (he’s never had a driver’s license), that was full of false information, complete with diagrams. I raced Corvairs, 61 and 65- the 65 was the safest and best handling American car of it’s time. In large part because they did revise and improve the rear suspension. The key point is that if Congress, and the people, will work together to build better systems, like health care, “fair” taxation, but not the “fair tax”, a refined social security structure that is NOT paying out to balance a budget for other spending, and a few other items, we can turn from the false prophets of “profit” and see that we can ALL “profit” from sounder government, but it won’t happen until people actually work together, instead of fighting for division.

    how can you put a value on “potential”. each new life is an unknown quantity in an equation that is constantly changing being altered by everyday occurance. Supposedly, we all start withthe same potential but environment and genetics shape each one differently.

    So every life is either priceless or price less.
