Just out of curiosity, why is it that Fox News goes live every time President Blowhard starts in with another of his say-nothing, mean-nothing speeches? I can’t turn on the TV anymore without this imbecile making another speech on some subject he knows nothing about and can’t finish is the teleprompter breaks.
So first thing this morning, brght and early, president Narcissist started yapping his gums and even before he said word on as he picked up his unearned Nobel Peace Prize, he had offended the Norwegian government:
Barack Obama’s trip to Oslo to pick up his Nobel peace award is in danger of being overshadowed by a row over the cancellation of a series of events normally attended by the prizewinner.
Norwegians are incensed over what they view as his shabby response to the prize by cutting short his visit.
The White House has cancelled many of the events peace prize laureates traditionally submit to, including a dinner with the Norwegian Nobel committee, a press conference, a television interview, appearances at a children’s event promoting peace and a music concert, as well as a visit to an exhibition in his honour at the Nobel peace centre.
He has also turned down a lunch invitation from the King of Norway.
According to a poll published by the daily tabloid VG, 44% of Norwegians believe it was rude of Obama to cancel his scheduled lunch with King Harald, with only 34% saying they believe it was acceptable.
The Norwegian Nobel committee, which awards the peace prize, dismissed the criticism. “We always knew that there were too many events in the programme. ” said Geir Lundestad, secretary of the committee.
Well, excuse me, Mister Committee Secretary, but i you KNEW there were “too many events in the programme”, why did you schedule so many?
Meanwhile, a poll by uber-lberal CNN shows that not only do a majority of Americans think he hasn’t done enough to earn a Nobel Prize’; that percentage has increased from 67% on October 16th to 80 % this last weekend:
Do you think Obama has accomplished enough so far to deserve the Nobel Peace Prize, or don’t you think so?
Dec. 2-3 — Oct. 16-18
Accomplished enough 19% — 32%
Do not think so…………80% — 67%
No opinion ………………….1% — 1%
So it’s kind of a typical move for the Obama Administration; He, the unworthy, accepts the unearned, and offends the non-Americans, un-impressing his countrymen in the process.
And he skipped the free lunch, too. Whassamatta; he’s never had the meatballs at IKEA? That’s good food there!
