This is soooo wrong:

According to Politico, President Obama, in a statement about the Nobel Peace Prize awarded to him, said:
“I will accept this award as a call to action, a call to all nations to confront the common challenges of the 21st Century.”
He will not listen to the majority of his own constituents when it comes to bailouts for auto makers, health care, cap and trade, or any of the other issues we face here in the United States but he'll take the award "as a call to action" from those sitting on the selection panel in Norway?

How's the oath of office go again? Something about "protect and defend the Constitution of the United States" I believe. Nothing about massive nanny state or global government in there that I recall. But then again, he is the constitutional scholar, not I perhaps he has read something in there I've missed.

I've also seen news articles and post titles about how "humbling" this award is to the President. "Humbling"? Are they taking about the right person?

I'm still incredulous they gave him this award! On what merit?? This is a head scratcher for me.

Oh well...
I was about to paste here the "I have a dream speech" with some adjustments and updates with regard to "the common challenges of the 21st century". On the other hand it will probably exceed your server's capabilities, so all I will say is this: Nice door on your shed. I guarantee you Obama has no idea how to build one.

Shelly, If I keep scratching my head over what happens to and within this administration, I'll be down to bone in no time.

Frank, Yeah, that part about being judged by accomplishments and deeds vs the color of one's skin has been pretty well trashed.
