Joe Scarborough and Mark Halperin Mock News tha Obama has Won Nobel Peace Prize - Video 10/9/09

Here is video of Joe Scarborough and Mark Halperin mocking the news that President Obama has been given the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize. Scarborough said it is a "joke," and Halperin said it reinforces the idea that Obama is all about "just words." Haperin joked you might as well give the award to "Michael Moore."

Toward the end of the video, Scarborough is told that "a senior White House Official" had sent a message saying Scarborough was acting like an "a**hole."

Well put Joe. Im not a fan of any 'news shows' but Joe was spot on in this matter.

Did our president campaign for this award? No. Did our president try to pass a bill to get this award for himself through the senate? No. Then why are the unkind, negative comments being directed at Obama? Instead, for those who have something negative to say direct all criticisms and disdain to the Nobel committee. Nevertheless, it still goes down in history!

Who was that useless numbskull of a woman in the powder blue? Does she have so much as an smidgeon of her own thought in her head? Every time she opened her mouth, she made sure she made it a point to "say the right thing" and then look into the camera so everyone watching would know that SHE is a good little Obama supporter. And THEY are the stupid little children that she has to suffer with. Oh the humanity.

UG. I wonder whose bodily refuse it is that has a permenant place on her pointy little elitist wannabe nose.

Yeah, I didn't like that woman at all.

And so now, what was Joe saying? (jokes)

To me it speaks volumes that Obama was nominated for the Nobel Prize 12 days after becoming president. Does that imply that the committee was assuming that the President future accomplishments in office would be worthy of this honor? It demeans the efforts of many past recipients and others that have been nominated but not won.

In response to sjet0521's comment. I don't think people who are questioning the validity of this award are criticizing Obama. We are simply questioning the merit of his record to deserve such a high honor. By accepting the prize Obama is also Professing to deserve the accolades. In my opinion this cheapens the award.

If anything cheapens this award, it's the perverse reaction of the rightwing fringe.

Last week, you gloated about how "the world rejected Obama" because the Chicago bid for the Olympics failed. At best, it was an indirect snub of Obama.

But now he gets the Nobel Prize, and you cannot stand it. Your hatred of all things Obama had blinded you.

There's a reason why Bush cannot spell "Nobel" and a reason why rightwingers can't be nominated for a Nobel Prize: their ideology over the last thirty yars has been myopic and self-centered, at best. Much of the world despises us for our arrogance, and a large majority of our own citizens are embarrassed by it.

No, Obama's accomplishments to date probably wouldn't warrant a Nobel Prize. But it's not just the two weeks he was in office before the Nobel nominations. He helped to transform this country throughout 2008, allowing the silent majority of us to repudiate the arrogance and selfishness of the rightwing extreme. It gave us the courage to say "Enough!" and rebuke the Republican standardbearers. And, make no mistake: you have been rebuked. Teabag all you want, we're determined not to let you all speak for America anymore.

It's not exclusively "your" country anymore. America belongs to all of us, and we will have our rightful seat at the table. Obama isn't the cause, he's merely the catalyst.
