    The fault was in the Nobel selection committee. They were so anxious to thumb their noses at Bush (deservedly), that they ignored Obama’s own language on war. He has said from the beginning that he opposed Iraq but not Afghanistan. It really bugs me that people seem so shocked.

    Look, Hitler truly wasn’t a liberal, but he wasn’t a socialist either. Remember he sent troops and aid to Franco in Spain to fight the socialists. The socialists and communists were some of his biggest enemies. So, what was he? OH, a conservative?

    Hitler was a fascist, like his pals Mussolini and Franco. Ol’ Benny Il Duce defined fascism as “corporatism,” where the state and the corporation become one, and the nation is run primarily for the benefit of its businesses (particularly those related to the war business). When Ike warned us about the “military-industrial complex,” he was using a more politically correct term for fascism. It appears we failed to heed his warning, and we are now in two wars whose primary purpose seems to be helping the oil industry and the arms industry.

    As for Obama being a “socialist,” don’t make me laugh any harder, I’ll blow an O-ring. Nixon was more of a socialist than Obama. Like every other politician from the Great State of Ill-Annoy, Mr. Obama’s bought and paid for by a wide array of Big Businesses: the Wall Street financial boys (Gold Sacks gave him a huge donation, and it’s shown a fine return on investment), the health insurance industry, the defense industry… and he’s paying them back handily. Just like every president since at least Reagan, Obama’s just another tool of the corporatocracy.

    Hitler was a socialist? Bwahahahahahahahaha! Is that why he was bitter enemy of the Soviet Union?

    Go read about Fascism vs Communism. They are polar opposites.

    Obama has been called a fascist and Socialist at the same time. Which is it, because it can’t be both.

    With all this comparison between Hitler and Obama, our American youth will soon think we went to war against Germany because of Hitler’s health care policies.

    Sorrry to upset you but Hitler was not a conservitive. He was a socialist the same as Obama. As far as the hate speach, ever listen to reverend Wright?

    Sorry, but Obama is no socialist. He’s continued the Wall St. bailout and gave health care reform to congress, which is a proxy for the health insurance industry. And while Hitler certainly was a socialist, he was by no means a progressive liberal that is implied by the right when talking socialism.

    It will take much more than a year or two for Obama to fix the mistakes and negligence of the Bush nightmare years. There are no good choices in Afghanistan, and nothing is likely to work very well there but at least the plan he chose includes a way for us to get out of there.

    I wish Obama had just declined the award and told the committee to reconsider him at the end of his presidency.

    I have nothing against him, but shouldn’t awards be made to someone after they have accomplished something? I certainly hope he does achieve something tangible during his time in office.

    There is something wrong.The Obama I know and love would never say what he is saying. Somebody must be standing behind the curtain holding a gun to his head to make him do all those things such as sending more troops to Afghanistan. He is doing that completely against his will—at least according to my theory

    As far as losing NPR, I think he lost them quite awhile ago. Has anyone noticed that most reporters/commentators refer to him as Mr. Obama rather than President Obama?

    I must respond to the comment that “most reporters/commentators refer to [the President] as Mr. Obama rather than President Obama.” This practice is hardly unusual, critical, or disrespectful. In fact, it is a tradition dating back to the very first president of the United States, Gen. George Washington, who preferred to be addressed as “Mr. President” while he was in office. It is likely that the commentators who call the President “Mr. Obama” are merely educated people.

    On Talk of the Nation Tuesday, the NPR ombudsman was on and this question was addressed. The style at NPR has always been that the 1st reference is “President Whoever” and subsequent references are “Mr. Whoever.” The NPR ombudsman’s link has clips to the Poppy Bush administration–
