I think they should’ve waited awhile, because giving it to him so early makes it seem like it’s an “honorary” nobel prize, and diminishes any effect it’s had. I think they wanted to give it to him for letting the world love and look up to america again.
But I find it amusing that the republicans are smearing obama for receiving an honor he didn’t ask for or even know about (literally the only thing he did wrong was get out of bed this morning), and it is especially ironic because a few months ago you may recall some republicans were lobbying to try to get twitter the nobel peace prize for their wonderful accomplishments in doing nothing while clever Iranians used their service to coordinate protests. Giving twitter the nobel is like giving the medal of honor to the company that made the paper the bill of rights was written on.
And a few short months later they’re railing against obama for getting the honor they wanted to give away to twitter.
Oh, and obama got russia to agree on dismantling our combined nuclear arsenals and got iran to agree to let nuclear inspectors in, something bush couldn’t even get by threatning to nuke iran…
A very classy and logical thing to do when waging two wars fought under the rationale of preventing WMDs from being used…
But I digest.
