I agree with Linda T. He should never have accepted something he did NOT deserve. What in the world has he done for peace? Not a thing. The only thing he will go in history for, is ruining The United States of America as our forefathers had det forth. This country will neer be the same, because he is trying to run everything thru the government. That is NOT democracy!!!
Get him out before he does more harm to our nation. I can't say "Great" any longer, because the moselm president we have has already taken the "Great" out of America.
Why do you think the moselums wanted in the White House? So he could ruin this country the way they have always planned. Financial ruin!!!!!!!!!!
IMpeach!!!!!

there is no good war, and the only way to find peace is thru peace. humans have been fighting for the past what 10.000 years? did the wars stop? no. peace is the only way.
by the way was he receiving the nobel of the good war to fight the evil in the world? or was he receiving the nobel peace prize???

Well, I'm impressed how he said so much without reading from notes & a very interesting speech. I've gotta say, I've written a letter to the white house letting the President know my point of view that he should return the Noble Prize withought question or hesitation. I wasn't a happy Jan! He's aware of us that think like that & he acknowledged that in his speech, which went a long way for me.
'The fundamental faith in human progress should be our Nth Star guiding us on our journey. The best possibility; THAT SPARK OF DIVINE THAT STILL STEERS WITHIN EACH OF OUR SOULS'! But he said earlier, ' DO NOT MISTAKE THAT EVIL DOES NOT EXIST'! Plus 'Promotion of human rights cannot be about EXORTATION ALONE, it must be coupled with PAINSTAKING DIPLOMACY'! Then also how can you put peace & war in the same sentence? Or justify war to make peace? I see his point though, I do. It's true, not all situations can be handled the Ghandi way, because yes, Evil does exist. He sees it though, he does.
But what can he do about it?
What control to help does he really have?
Check out the history of the Red Cross by the way, you'll discover they shipped arms to Hitler in the 2nd WW. I question authority in all forms because I'm wise enough to. You all should too!
At the end of the day whether he wrote his own speech or not; he had to say what he had to say.
In the end?
ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS!

I can only say:"what a bummer ,the world keeps getting dummer" NOFX-Idiots Are Taking Over
he's just a politician,a liar who only wants to get money and power.At this point he is not much different from Bush only people fear saying it because they think they'll be called racists because Obama's black.
Well guess what:evil is evil no matter what colour it is!!
Which changes he brought to this world to deserve Nobel Prize?ccc idiots have really taken over pathetic

A Nobel Prize is not something one expects. It is bestowed. It isn't like a political office one runs for. I do believe Obama brought hope to a great nation that had lost its way. The prize was intended to honor not only the man, but a nation of people who came together to take back control of a seriously flawed government.

I THINK OBAMA SHOULD NOT HAVE EXCEPTED THE AWARD. HE HASN'T DONE ANYTHING TO DESERVE IT. HE HAS LIED TO THE US CITIZENS, EVEN BEFORE HE WAS ELECTED PRESIDENT. AFTER HE GOT TO BE PRESIDENT HE HAS LIED THAT MUCH MORE. HE TALKS ABOUT BUSH, OBAMA NEEDS TO LOOK AT HIMSELF FIRST, HE HAS GOT THE DEFICT HIGHER THAN ANY PRESIDENT HAS EVER DONE. HE IS TRYING TO TAKE OVER OUR HEALTH INSURANCE, GOVERNMENT RUN, AND HE KNOWS THE AMERICAN PEOPLE DON'T WANT THAT. HE DON'T CARE WHAT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WANT, WITH HIM IT'S ONLY WHAT OBAMA WANTS. WE NEED A PRESIDENT THAT WILL TRY TO HELP THIS COUNTRY, NOT TARE IT APART. MAY GOD HAVE MERCY ON THE UNITED STATES, IF HE DON'T WE ARE HEADED FOR BANKRUPSY AND SCREWED UP HEALTH INSURANCE. THE WAY OBAMA IS SPENDING OUR CHILDREN AND THEIR CHILDREN AND THE NEXT 5 GENERATIONS WILL NEVER PAY OFF THE DEPT. THIS IS MY OPINION.

some of these comments just astound me.

The extremist Muslims do not want you alive! They want to kill everyone that doesn’t agree with them. They will do anything, at any cost to prove this, including committing suicide for promises of a wonderful afterlife. When you have an enemy that does not believe in the basic value of human life, you have an enemy that is evil and needs to be destroyed!
well, oblivious to history, she's dripping with bloodlust, teh exact thing she poses as deploring.

We elected Obama and we must trust he will do the right thing.
isn't what the bush-bunch did, or the bleating sheep of every tyrant in history?

and a lady named ali calls obama "an antiwar activist trying to use nonviolence as much as possible." WHAT? obama maintains iraq occupation, expands afpak war (soon to yemen/uzbek/iran?) and on 2nd day after inauguration authorizes the continuation of CIA rendition outsourced torture with the words "we don't stand for torture" still on his lying lips. protects the bush torturers and super-spies and continues the bush corporate-communist trillions to the corporatist criminals as a REWARD for their disaster.

partisan 'thinking' is NOT THINKING but knee-jerk support of one party over the other, when there virtually no difference. on war funds, patriot axe, torture... the dems rubber-stamped it all in goose-step with the GOP. oh mass-murder's okay if its done by 'our obama'? how about if it was your home bom

I think the heart of the difference in worldviews between nonviolent activists and people, like Obama, who believe in war as a tool for peace, is the core belief that Obama states in his speech, that "evil does exist in this world."

This is a very different worldview than what NVC (Nonviolent Communication, see http://www.cnvc.org) puts forth: that every behavior is a strategy to meet universal human needs.

It seems to me that as long as the dominant view is that "evil does exist in this world," we will continue to overlook each other's shared humanity and continue to engage in war. I think it's the belief that evil exists that actually leads to war.

Love this kind of story. It's nice to see a place where blind cats can still play and have fun.
