“What has President Obama actually accomplished?” said Michael Steele, chairman of the Republican National Committee.

“It is unfortunate that the president’s star power has outshined tireless advocates who have made real achievements working towards peace and human rights.”
In a development which surprised everyone, including U.S. President Barack Obama, he won the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize.

President Obama won the prize for a variety of reasons, one of which was his ability to marshal support for a ban on nuclear weapons.

I don’t care if you agree with the decision, but at least show the honor some respect. I remember when being named a Nobel laureate was a good thing…a high honor.

I will post some of the critiques, prefaced by a letter of the alphabet. At the bottom of the blog, I will post each letter, followed by the name of the person who uttered the comment.

Why such a “Mickey Mouse” thing? I want you to guess which responses came from Democrats, GOP, the terrorist-linked Hamas and Taliban, and a certain foreign government.

A—”We are not upset and we hope that by receiving this prize he will start taking practical steps to remove injustice in the world. If he removes the veto from the United Nations Security Council, then it shows the prize was given correctly to him.”

B—”He has done nothing for peace in Afghanistan … We condemn the award of the Nobel Peace Prize for Obama.”

C—”Under any circumstance an appropriate response is to say congratulations,”

D—”What’s Obama done? What peace has he negotiated? … I suppose an organization that thought Yasser Arafat worthy of the same prize can’t be taken seriously anyway. But they are.”

E—”Obama has a long way to go still and lots of work to do before he can deserve a reward. Obama only made promises and did not contribute any substance to world peace.”

F—”I’m not sure what the international community loved best; his waffling on Afghanistan, pulling defense missiles out of Eastern Europe, turning his back on freedom fighters in Honduras, coddling Castro, siding with Palestinians against Israel, or almost getting tough on Iran,” Barrett said.

G—”I did not realize the Nobel Peace Prize had an affirmative action quota for it, but that is the only thing I can think of for this news,” Erickson wrote. “There is no way Barack Obama earned it in the nominations period. “

A—Ali Abkar Javanfekr, media aide to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

B— Zabihullah Mujahid, a Taliban spokesman

C— Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty.

D—Rick Moran in his blog on American Thinker.

E—Sami Abu Zuhri, a Hamas official

F—GOP Rep. Gresham Barrett, who is running for governor of South Carolina.

G—Erick Erickson, writing on the conservative RedState.com.

That’s right:
There were no Democrats on the list—I punked you on that—and the Islamic Republic of Iran had more respect for the Nobel—and President Obama—than the Republicans. In fact, the Republicans, Taliban and Hamas sounded alike.

Remember that when you vote next year. The GOP sounded like the Taliban and Hamas.
