The travesty of Obama's Nobel peace price award is best appreciated when compared to any number of other more deserving candidates.
Nominations closed two weeks into his presidency. Apparently airing flowery platitudes about "hoping" for a world without war, trumps actual actions for the cause...such as...oh I dunno....risking one's life, or having one's family captured, tortured and murdered.
Then again, anyone can have the courage to sacrifice everything for the cause of peace. Reading a professionally written speech about peace off of a teleprompter - now THAT'S praiseworthy.
