    Awarding the Nobel Peace Prize to US President Barack Obama in 2009 failed to achieve what the committee hoped it would, its ex-secretary has said.

    Maybe next time, don't hand out prizes for anticipated future achievements...

    Maybe he can trade the Nobel Prize for one of these...

          Pretty late for the Nobel idiots to have second thoughts about their own culpability, isn't it?

          "Giving Obama the medal failed to achieve what they hoped to achieve?" That's an open admission that Obama had done nothing to earn a Nobel in the first place, and that therefore the entire Nobel awards system is corrupt and meaningless.

              We all regret it.

                  people need to read before they comment


                  Geir Lundestad told the AP news agency that the committee hoped the award would strengthen Mr Obama.

                  Instead, the decision was met with criticism in the US. Many argued he had not had any impact worthy of the award.

                  Mr Lundestad, writing in his memoir, Secretary of Peace, said even Mr Obama himself had been surprised.

                    I could care less about a Socialist Euroweenie award anyhow.

                      The Nobel Prize is not socialist - it is liberal. Or have you forgotten all those Nobel Prizes awarded to Soviet dissidents?

                        That was when it still meant something.
                        Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it whether it exists or not, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedy. -- Ernest Benn

                          If Obama gets a prize it should be for the biggest DORK of the universe.

                            Which would be? Bunin, Pasternak, Solzhenitsyn and Brodsky for literature — that's the Swedish Academy of Letters behind those. (There was also a stink when Sokholov got his prize otoh.)

                            Otherwise, THIS is specifically about Sakharov, who got the peace prize — and THAT from the Norwegian parliament. They're the ones that singled out Obama.

                            Apart from Sakharov the only Russian the Norwegians have so honored has been Gorbachev.

                            Chemistry and physics are both the Swedish Academy of Science in Stockholm, and medicine or physiology is the Nobel Committee of the Karolinska Institutet Medical University in Stockholm.

                              That was just a way to **** off the Soviets.
