Just Wait For It

Congratulations (like mine are awaited with baited breath) to President Barack Obama for winning the 2009 Noble Peace Prize.
But now, we get to wait for the right wing nut jobs and others to start their criticism of Obama and the Nobel Prizes, because they will wrongly claim, among other things, that Obama toured Europe and the world apologizing for the USA (never happened), and of course, the awards are tainted because people like former President James Carter and former Vice President Al Gore have won the award (which makes it more prestigious, in my opinion).
Now, this award should be considered a start, and reducing and eventually ending the U.S. military presence in Iraq and Afghanistan should be the next major international relations steps, but it certainly helps to be getting along diplomatically (and in other ways) with much of the world.
