Barack Obama Wins Nobel Peace Prize

President Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize today in a surprise decision to build momentum behind his efforts to reduce nuclear weapons and ease tensions with the Muslim world. President Obama said he was surprised and deeply grateful for the honor.

I personally do not believe a sitting President fighting a war on multiple fronts should be awarded an honor that should be about making peace, not increasing war. We are currently engaged in war on multiple fronts, and awarding a man who continues these acts of violence regardless of your political ideology is a mockery of the awards in my opinion.

This would be tantamount to awarding Sammy Sosa, Mark McGwire, Jose Canseco, and Alex Rodriguez with free passes to the Baseball Hall of Fame. The Nobel Peace Prize is now meaningless in my opinion.
