Obama is the most divisive president that the US has ever seen. The last person that should receive a prize for peace.

Nevertheless, awarding Obama the Nobel peace prize is a sign of approval from international community's side of his politics, different from Bush's. However, in America this news caused doubtful joy, some journalists say he has not deserved it...some say it's too early for him a prize, because according to the rules of the Nobel prize committee candidature of a competitor should have been proposed a year ago, so his candidature was proposed after two weeks of his win in the president elections...At the same time, it is said that political life in America has become diverse and more citizens state their positions, and also that Obama has undertaken rescue of the American financial system and long-term re-structuring of economy.

Obama has not even rescued the financial system. Actually very little money from the Stimulus has even been used! If it was so urgent to pass this Stimulus Bill, then why hasn't it been used? Answer: because it was a fraud from the beginning!

In reality Obama has not yet done anything! Except for his government takeover of some private companies. (he is a Marxist afterall) So far it is all talk. He was awarded the NObel simply because of his TALK.......not so amazing really when you consider that the peace prize was also given to a murderer called Yasser Arafat too! (So International approval really means nothing to me) and neither does this Peace Prize.

Obama is not that evil to be rebuked or that icon to be praised permanently.It seems the wisdom is in the middle.It,s better to let him do his efforts.there will be a long time to judge.Another point,have you ever pondered how cumbersome being president of u.s is.Sometimes we are unable to manage our home affairs let alone managing a superpower country!

Better not to let him do his efforts. All of his efforts are very bad for America and against our laws.
