Now, I don't say this because I hate Obama (which, admittedly, I do... I suppose good ole' Thomas Hobbes and I would never have gotten along- anyways), but because it is my honest opinion. I don't think he should have gotten that prize until he actually did some of those things.
Here's the title of one of many articles on this controversial subject (courtesy of the home page of CNN.com, as of 11:11 PM on October 9th, 2009): "Analysis: Did Obama win for not being Bush?"
And I believe that pretty much sums up my feelings on the subject. Comments on the subject?
