So He Won A Nobel Prize….

A few days ago it was announced that this year’s Nobel Peace Prize has gone to Obama. it was awarded to him for his “extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.” [in the words of the Norwegian Nobel Committee]. It was a surprise for everyone, even Obama himself. And although the news has only been out a few days. it’s causing a lot of controversy already…

Maybe one of the reasons is because he was nominated for it 12 days after being in the office (according to CNN). Some people are happy about it, while others think he didn’t deserve it. It’s even ticked some people off… a poll was done on Twitter that revealed only 37% thought he deserved it, while 54% believed he didn’t…9% were undecided.

I’m with the 9%. While I think it’s good that he got it, I see where some people are coming from when they say it’s too soon. Like I said before, he was nominated for it 12 days after officially being President, so there wasn’t really time for him to do any kind of serious actions. That and I don’t know much about his recent actions and whether they were good or bad decisions [haven’t been watching the news a lot these days =S], which is why I’m undecided on whether he should’ve got it, even Obama himself said that he didn’t feel he deserved it…

But whether he did or not, I’m happy for him. Wonder what the republicans have to say about it though….
