Obama Wins Nobel Peace Prize – Sour Grapes the Order of the Day (Week? Year?) on Fox

Reported by Julie - October 9, 2009 -

President Obama wins the Nobel Peace Prize for, among other things, “his initiatives to reduce nuclear arms, ease tensions with the Muslim world and stress diplomacy and cooperation rather than unilateralism” – and Fox & Friends is already in I’m-taking-my-toys-and-going-home mode. Can we just imagine the glee and balloons and festivals on Fox had George Bush been granted this honor? With video.

Brian Kilmeade sneered, “This arguably could be the third person to win the award for not being George Bush.” Hmm, for that alone it seems well-deserved – however, not being George Bush has resulted in a lifting of the United States’ worldwide brand. According to the Christian Science Monitor, “Barack Obama's election victory and global popularity have made the United States the world's most admired national ‘brand,’ a new survey finds . . . The Anholt-GfK Roper Nation Brands Index (NBI) survey on which countries are most admired and appreciated around the world has been conducted annually since 2005. This year the US topped the list for the first time, climbing six spots.”

Doocy noted that the Committee “attached special importance to Obama’s vision of and work for a world without nuclear weapons . . . so he’s got that vision thing going on . . . what exactly has he accomplished?” Guess he’s succeeded, around the world, in resurrecting in nine months what George Bush trashed over eight years.

Carlson weighed in, protesting, “If there’s an actual accomplishment for getting rid of nuclear weapons . . . .”

“Would he switch it all for the Chicago Olympics?” was Kilmeade’s parting shot.

Gird your loins, people – Fox & Friends has greased the gears for seven days and seven nights of how-could-this-happen and what’s-this-world-coming-to? Well, Obama has thick skin - maybe it’ll get them off Kevin Jennings and ACORN.
