Obama as Nobel-laureate – Not popular

Well, everyone is buzzing about it and mostly not in a good way.  This post by port1080 @  TnT provides a good series of comments from usually supportive websites:

If there’s any question that this decision was bizarre, it should be dispelled by the fact that even most of the left (from the center-left to the far left) is puzzled by it:

“If he achieves all [his goals], he definitely deserves a prize. But not quite yet.”

“Seriously. Should he turn it down?”,-Obama

“He has to turn down the Nobel Peace Prize.”

“These Nobel sentiments, however, are aspirational in my view. Obama doesn’t deserve the prize, yet. ”

“This is an odd award. You’d expect it to come later in Obama’s presidency and tied to some particular event or accomplishment.”
