Apparently, Obama will be rewarded the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize. Many question whether he truly deserves it or not. But we all know that he does. After all, he’s the president who single-handedly rescued our economy from recession, reformed healthcare, ended the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, established peace in the Middle East, shut down Guantanamo Bay, and ensured equal rights for homosexuals.
Wait! He didn’t do any of that. So why did he win the Nobel Peace Prize again?
Oh, I see. We’re giving Obama an ‘A’ for effort. I guess you don’t have to do anything to earn yourself a Peace Prize. All you have to do is try. At least Obama did his best.
A recent post from Stop the ACLU reflects my sentiments exactly:
Just after winning the Nobel Peace Prize, the President was remarking to Press Secretary Gibbs that he had a great idea for a movie. As he started to explain, the phone rang with news that he’d won the Academy Award for Best Picture.
