Well what the Nobel Prize panel had to say might answer that.
The Nobel Prize panel cited Obama’s call for a world nuclear free world. That is the naive Obama they are talking about who believes/believed you could dismantle your weapons and trust murderers to do the same. His disgraceful agreement with Iran proves he is willing to risk the security of the United States and Israel just to further his own legacy. Even if many will view his legacy as one that risked the lives of millions.
The Nobel Prize panel also brought up Obama’s role in combating global warming. What? The Nobel committee also credited Barack Obama for his support of the United Nations. Support of a historically inept group full of haters of America. Well, I suppose you can start to see how politics plays into these decisions.
Maybe this would be a good time to mention some of the other winners of the Nobel Peace Prize. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, Al Gore. I refer you to the climate-gate scandal. Jimmy Carter was also a past winner. He wasn’t a very good president to say the least. In fact, he was very much like Obama, but with some limitations and seemingly some moral compass. His presidency may be the only time where the economy rivaled this one, with the exception of the great depression. Then there was Yasser Arafat. Really? Lets face it – the last couple decades have been a complete joke when it comes to the Nobel Peace Prize.
In September of last year it turned out that Geil Lundestad, director at the institute for 25 years, said in his memoir that he and the committee decided to grant the award to Obama just after his election in 2009 more in hopes of aiding him to achieve his goals on nuclear disarmament, rather than in recognition of what he had actually accomplished. He stated that giving him the award did not fulfill the committee’s expectations that it would strengthen Obama.
