Default Obama and the Nobel Peace Prize

*Checks to see if this was already posted*
Nope, I think I'm safe

Yes, the title says it all. President Obama has won the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize. Here is a video of the announcement

Apparently, the committee supports his plans "to strengthen the international diplomacy and inter human relations". Can you agree?

Personally, I am rather surprised. However, I would like to hear what you all have to say about it. Please Discuss!

Yes nabris this was already made....

however upon further inspection it for some strange reason is in the off topic section.

My response there:

They've all promised many grand things, which most either have been left unfulfilled, or caused more damage to a pre-existing problem. Awarding someone such a prestigious award, for things that they have not even done, is so incredible, I cant find words for it. Its just ridiculous.

Good for him. I'd already heard about this, but even then I wasn't really shocked. It doesn't seem like a huge deal.

Default Re: Obama and the Nobel Peace Prize

Ghandi, Pope John Paul II, Eleanor Roosevelt, Liu Xiaobo, and many others are among the list of greats who were nominated for the nobel peace prize award but never won. What has Obama done, (besides opening a dialogue with Iran, which was inevitable with the International community coming down on them) to surpass these people?

this is a debate, and I am very interested to hear reasons, so please explain what he has possibly done to earn it, when the entire pretense behind winning the prize is what he 'promises' to do

LOL I agree, Nobel Peace Prize is pretty much trash now. I mean Al Gore got his because he made a movie about Global Warming. Stupid, so many other people made movies, documentaries, wrote books on it way before Al Gore. I mean the movie "The day after tommorrow" came first and Roland didn't get any Nobel .

The Nobel peace prize has some kind of hard on for Democratic politicians or something.

Default Re: Obama and the Nobel Peace Prize

I think this award was premature to give to President Obama. Don't get me wrong, I like Obama and voted for Obama, but I think that this was a vote for what Obama hopes to achieve, rather than what has been done so far. I am glad that he is giving the prize money to charity though.

That said, I think that there is an interesting shift in why the Nobel Prizes are being awarded to certain individuals. This year the prize for economics went to a very bright first-year graduate student: http://gregmankiw.blogspot.com/2009/...ins-nobel.html

It seems as if the judging committee is looking not only at one's entire body of work, but taking the potential of that individual's ideas to help shape and redefine our world into consideration. This shift is actually good in a way, as it gives more winners who might have traditionally been dismissed by the committee (e.g., too young, not established enough, etc.) to have the opportunity to win the prestigious award.

You never know, we have some really bright people around these forums. With the new shift in judging perspective, one of you could come up with a brilliant idea and win the prize too. ^^
