Rude Re-Awaking

This morning Fox News jolted me awake with the remembrance that Obama had undeservedly received the Noble Peace Prize before actually accomplishing anything positive. Back in December 2009 I wrote about Obama's  Nobel Peace Prize Travesty, which had since faded from my memory.  Tom Tooles also had an excellent cartoon concerning the granting of the award.

Since receiving the Noble Peace Prize, Obama has continued our military adventures in Iraq and Afghanistan.  He still has not closed GITMO. Now he has initiated new military actions in Libya.  Of course, Fox News gleefully reviewed all of Obama's broken campaign promises. Even more amusing, Fox News actually gave Micheal Moore of all people an ata-boy for condemning our new military involvement in Libya.  The Toronto Sun writes: "Taking to his Twitter page, Moore rages, "We have neither the troops, stomach, or $$ (dollars) to fight a ground war for months/years to defeat (Moammar Gadhafi)... May I suggest a 50-mile evacuation zone around Obama's Nobel Peace Prize?"" (Emphasis added).  Amazing to see Fox News and Moore on the "same" page.

Well, thanks Fox News for reminding me that Obama was undeservedly granted the Nobel Peace prize. Unfortunately, Toles hope that Obama would run a good race has not panned out.
