I understand that this so-called prestigious award is mostly handed down to those favoring a liberal ideology. The fact that Jimmy Carter (the peanut farmer) and most inept president of our time had won the Nobel--tells you something of it's hypocritical and ironic nature.
Bush is about to change the course of worldwide terror into a world seeking and managing freedoms/democracies, yet he has stiff competition for the Nobel award. Ex president Clinton won't be satisfied with his adultery and impeachment legacy until he can add the Nobel to his prized list. Look for Clinton and a posthumous write-in for the quadruple murderer Tookie Williams to give George a run for his money in the voting for the Nobel recipient. Remember, Tookie was writing children's books in his spare time when he wasn't pumping iron in the fenced-in courtyard. I suspect those voting for the next Nobel recipient will be doing so with their hearts and not their minds--as is always the case.

If the Nobel Peace Prize is to go to George Bush, all I can say is: Thank God that Gandhi never got one.

FYI: dead people cannot be nominated for a Nobel Award, nor can they recieve one posthumously if they win and die before the presentation of the award.

Side note: I though Carter won it for his Habitat For Humanity work, not his presidency.

Ha. Haha. Hahahahahahaha!:lol:

He sort of took himself out of the running by starting a WAR! And then he pretty much solidified his absolute 0 chance of winning the award by not having an exit strategy. Maybe he'll be in the running in the next couple of years if he finally comes to his senses and does a good job of getting the troops home and leaving a stable Iraqi government, but I doubt even that will make up for what he's done so far.

Well if Henry Kissinger and Yasser Arafat can get a Nobel, I suppose George Bush can too...

No, he won for his role in negotiating the peace between Israel and Egypt.

Wouldnt giveing a war criminal the nobel peace prize defeat the object somewhat? Hows does invadeing a country and establishing a puppet government to benefit ones oil buissness help world peace?

You realize that Yasser arafat won a nobel peace prize in 1994?Or do you only think that Hitlers in head scarfs like Yasser Arafat should win Nobel Peace prizes?

Just because the Noble Lauriet commitee, where stupid enough to give Yassar Arafat a noble peace prize does not mean that they should repeat their mistake by giving one to George Bush.:twocents:

So you only think that Hitlers in head scarfs like Yasser Arafat should win Nobel Peace prizes?

Do you honestly think that if a bunch retards go to a dictator to coherse him into allowing his country to be democratic and to not burtalize his people anymore that he will agree and magically turn a new leaf?

People who work for peace should receive noble peace prizes. Those who don't, well, thats good for them.

The whole thing is stupid though cause Arafat got an award for one which is bullshit.

I don't think Arafat should get one any more than Bush should.

"A bunch of retards" I don't think could do much of anything. Sorry, that's hadicapped in this case, not handicapable.

Let me refraise the question, do think some one can make a brutal dictator change his ways and be nice to his people and not try to gas or murder anyone anyone of his people and perhaps turn himself in to face justice with out the use of war?

So you agree that Clinton was a brutal dictator too by invading Bosnia or does he get a free pass because he is a liberal democrat?
