Here is video of White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs today explaining that Obama's selection to receive the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize was not based on "the achievements of one person," but rather "represents the hopes of millions and millions throughout the world of the life and the world they want to live in."
Obama has been able to ride this hobby-horse of "Hope and Change" all the way to the White House and now to get the Nobel Peace Prize. It will be interesting to see if people ever decide to look beyond the rhetoric to see what his agenda actually produces. It is not producing a stronger America, but a weaker one. But then, that suits the rest of the world just fine. From their perspective, you might as well encourage him to keep it up.
