Letter: Peace Prize was undeserved

Let me see if I got this right. I'm supposed to be in great awe of President Obama for receiving the Nobel Peace Prize. Is it for being in office just 12 days before being nominated? What he did in those 12 days that was so great I'm still trying to figure that one out!

Is it for going on a world apology tour blaming America for everything? Is it for going in front of the UN and receiving praises from the likes of Moammar Gadhafi of Libya, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran and Fidel Castro of Cuba, all avowed enemies of the free people of America and the free world?

Is it for running up our national debt that now stands at $11.9 trillion, which has tripled since Obama and the Democrats took over this year? Is it for when Ralph Nader was asked, "What's your take on President Obama thus far?" He replied, "Weak. Waffling, wavering, ambiguous and overwhelmingly concessionary!"

Is it for stalling on the additional troop request by General McChrystal for the needed troops in Afghanistan, while our men on the battlefield are literally dying waiting for an answer?

Is it for taking the time from his busy schedule to have a beer summit, to take a vacation at Martha's Vineyard and play golf? Some say it's because he might do great things. If that's the case, then every person that joins the armed forces should given the Congressional Medal of Honor (the nation's highest honor), because they too may do great things!
