Driving to work this morning, I heard the news of Barry Vladimir Hussein Soetero Obama's Nobel Peace Prize award. And the laughter ensued. Obama-mania has truly reached the realms of absurdity.
The man had achieved nothing in life, but knew how to build a brand and deliver a speech. He parlayed those ancillary talents into becoming the 44th President of the United States. Why should it be a surprise that the same gaseous platitudes and Miss America philosophy could result in winning the Nobel Peace Prize? After all, Nobel committee members admitted that Jimmy Carter's Nobel Prize was largely awarded for his verbal tirades against President Bush and American foreign policy. Who does America bashing better than Obama? He has no peer in that field, so he was a natural winner.
The Milli Vanilli president is the emptiest suit to ever enter the political world. Becoming the biggest phony in American politics is truly an achievement. He projects American weakness. The world loves that. He rejects American exceptionalism. That is endearing to the international community. He believes America has been a force for ill around the globe. That makes him part of the in-crowd among the one-worlders.
His "dedication" to peace is clear. He unilaterally nullified agreements to provide defense systems for Poland and the Czech Republic. The Poles and Czechs don't feel safer. He will not meet with the Dalai Lama during the Tibetan leader's trip to America. Obama does not want to offend Red China. He believes the world will be more peaceful if no nuclear weapons exist. Hitler did not have nukes. Mao did not have nukes. Stalin did not have nukes for most of his tenure. Tojo did not have nukes. The man has no understanding of the "peace through strength" principle. He is willing to treat Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as an equal and negotiate with the terrorist state of Iran. He calls on Israel to give up more land to the terrorists who are attacking them on a daily basis. Obama is praised by Hugo Chavez, Daniel Ortega, Fidel Castro, and Moammar Quadaffi. Even French President Nicholas Sarkozy has commented on Obama's weakness and naivete. This is not a picture that will create and preserve greater peace.
