    Makes as much sense as O winning it in 09. What a joke.

    Barack Obama hmself was surprised and not entirely grateful for recieving the award when he did. According to wikipedia he donated it to charity. Fisher House Foundation received $250,000, and the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund which received $200,000. Eight organizations which support education also received a donation. $125,000 was donated to the College Summit, the Posse Foundation, the United Negro College Fund, the Hispanic Scholarship Fund, the Appalachian Leadership and Education Foundation, and the American Indian College Fund. $100,000 was donated to Africare, and the Central Asia Institute.
    While he would agree he had not earned the prize, he did use the money in good ways.

    Thanks for sharing the facts.
    I wonder if mittens would have sent it overseas… to his Swiss Account, or the the Caymans?

    The trolls be trolling.

    I understood and appreciate your first comment, and your second. I agree, if he wants to create and award his own prize, go for it and stop complaining about what the Nobel Committee chose to do. That was their mission, not his./hers or its.
