Obama gets "Peace Prize" for "Noble Intentions."


Obama just won the Nobel peace prize. Not for anything he actually did mind you. Even the most pro-Obama outlets are admitting that the prize is for “noble intentions.”

“In awarding President Obama the Nobel Peace Prize, the Norwegian committee is honouring his intentions more than his achievements.” – BBC

“Apparently, they now give out a Nobel Peace Prize for good intentions. Unless I have missed something, President Obama has not yet achieved a nuclear free world — which was also, by the way, Ronald Reagan’s good intention.” – Washington Post

“But seriously: premature, much? Speaking only for myself, I think that Obama has done a good preliminary job in steering the tone of some contentious international relationships back in a serviceable direction.” – Huffington Post
