president barack obama won nobel prize
Last Friday, President Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize! Why? Because according to the committee via Anythinghollywood.com;

"Obama’s diplomacy has brought the world together (metopharically) and he has been steadfast on his efforts to cut down on nuclear weapons"

Well, many thinks he somewhat doesn't deserve it, for they think Obama hasn’t done enough to earn such coveted prize. Well...for me, this award is for people who has accomplished something. Has he? I don't somehow get this, what were the committee thinking??

According Former Polish President Lech Walesa, who won the prize in 1983 said (via The Huffington Post):

So soon? Too early. He has no contribution so far. He is still at an early stage. He is only beginning to act,” Walesa said. “This is probably an encouragement for him to act. Let’s see if he perseveres. Let’s give him time to act,” Walesa said.

Obama, as humbles as he is already, was surprised and deeply humbled by the honor, which he said he does not see “as a recognition of my own accomplishments,” but rather as a recognition of goals he has set for the United States and the world. “I do not feel that I deserve to be in the company of so many transformative figures that have been honored by this prize."

Well said, president!
