If you’ve paid any attention to the news – or rather the fawning, biased non-news spewed forth from Obama’s MSM media shills – you know that on December 10, 2009, President Obama took a short break from his duties as POTUS in order to fly to Oslo, Norway to accept his Nobel Peace Prize.
Even more than usual President Obama’s acceptance speech was a “wonder” to behold.
Don’t get me wrong; I personally found very little that was glaringly inaccurate or offensive to America and Americans in President Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech. But it takes levels of narcissism, arrogance, and raw chutzpah that beggars the civilized man’s mind to use one’s Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech to justify two ongoing wars and to lecture the audience on the meaning of “just war” and that we won’t achieve peace in our lifetimes.
Two personal points – One, Obama’s linking of himself with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was naught but shameful, racialist pandering more suited to an ACORN operative than the POTUS.
Bringing up Gandhi was especially sweet! It was a beautiful dig at the Nobel Committee for fives times refusing to award Gandhi the Peace Prize because it would have Norway’s political relationship with England.
If there’s an issue with President Obama’s Nobel acceptance speech, it isn’t that its contents were untrue. It was that it was highly inappropriate for the circumstances, venue, and audience. Some truths should not be spoken, at least not all the time and without concern. Look at what doing so did to President Bush’s international reputation 😉
