Pres. Obama and The Noble Peace Prize
It is an honor for the United States that President Obama received this prize. However, I do not think that he should have been awarded such a prize at this time. The value of this prize may be lessened in the future. Yes, I voted for Barack Obama in the 2008 Presidential Election. We wish him the best during his time as President.
There are now too many issues that President Obama has to deal with. Such as the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Also, the problems with Iran, North Korea, and the Middle East. Africa, Asia, South America, and Europe will take a good deal of attention. Not to mention domestic issues such as healthcare/insurance, the unemployed, the banking system, the tax system, the regular & swine flu, plus many more issues.
President Obama may be trying to move in a succesful direction on many issues. It is too soon to judge or award him. It appears, he was nominated for the Noble Peace Prize a few days after becoming President. That does not seem to make sense. Yes, wish President Obama well but let him prove himself.
My humble thoughts on the topic. YOUR Comments are Welcome!!!!!!
