– RT @ezraklein Obama also awarded Nobel prize in chemistry. “He’s just got great chemistry,” says Nobel Committee.
– That was the Nobel for medicine, for the organic garden in the White House and hot they try to heal the world.
– Nobel Peace Prize to Obama is really to the American people for getting out of Dark Ages and voting for him. Europe saw the light again.
– Peace prize is an encouragement real work is still to come and World has Obama’s back.
– GOP, treated as legitimate in the USA, was unfathomable to Europeans. They had a deep sigh of relief on Nov.4th. Nobel is a “thank you” note
– Peace Prize, unlike the others, is for Effort. Alfred wrote the strange instructions at a different age in history.
– I also think it’s premature – I am just trying to explain the European mindset/reasoning that led to it, to the Americans.
– Nobel Peace prize is limited to the surface of the Earth. Sending NASA to bomb the Moon does not count.
