So the big news last week was President Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize. And of course the Obama haters decried the award and said he didn’t deserve it and all this hateful stuff. If Obama healed the sick by touching them, people would complain he is disrupting natural selection. If he could bless contaminated water and make it drinkable, people would complain that he is changing the ecosystem and that the animals that depend on that bad water are more important than the people who could drink the good water. No matter what Obama does, people complain. They really want to see him fail. It’s pathetic. It’s only in America can you show such disdain for a leader who hasn’t really fucked up. They fault him not doin anything, they fault him for doing somethin. What the fuck is the man supposed to do? Everything he does and doesn’t do is a problem for people. A guy who has been at a job for about 10 months has been placed under the highest scrutiny. He shoulda just got a CEO job at a bank and collect the $50+ million retirement package instead. I don’t know anyone with their regular day-to-day job that is put under this amount of pressure in their first 10 months. If they were I’m pretty sure they’d be fired by now. “Yes, our company is on the brink of collapse, we are in debt, and our employees are divided due to multiple issues including health. Our competitors are making gains on us, the world doesn’t trust us, but we expect you to hit the ground running and turn all this around before the year ends. Thanks.” You people are stupid. Anyways, I personally don’t believe he deserves the award…it’s just too soon. Nominations were in by February 1st and he had only been President for 12 days. I guess the nominators HOPEd that Obama’s promises of hope would actually happen. I think it’s a silly gesture. But even though I don’t think he deserved the award I don’t think that it warrants hateful discussion (or any real discussion, the point of my post is about how people want Obama to fail) about it. Calling the Peace Prize a joke or sayin that Obama has been totally useless is the shit we don’t need right now. I really would have liked for him to win it 8 years down the road so that during his acceptance speech he can give a shout out to all you haters. Maybe he’ll throw in “suck it” or “now ya’ll can sit on my dick and spin” in his message.
