President Obama Peace Prize
I logged on to an internet news source this morning only to be blasted by the news that U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama has won the Nobel Peace Prize for the year 2009.
Former U.S. President Ronald Reagan never won the Nobel Peace Prize, in spite of the fact that his leadership caused the former Soviet Union to drop to its knees, and forced the Berlin Wall to come down.
Amazingly, Mikail Gorbachev did win it.
Barack Hussein Obama may indeed prove himself worthy of this award at some point in the future. Hopefully, he will do just that. But even seasoned observers of the Peace Prize process were shocked that he won it so early in his presidency.
It shows me how quickly the world can rush toward wholesale acceptance of a man. Does this ring any prophetic bells for anyone reading this?
