Did President Barack Obama deserve the Nobel Peace Prize this early in his term?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on December 11, 2009
“No, not at all. Just because I think that he should prove himself more. I think there are other people out there who deserve it more.”
“He hasn’t done anything. It was a purely political decision to give him that. The prize was given to him because he wasn’t Bush.”
“I think if he is trying to achieve peace as one of his objectives as president, perhaps he deserves it.”
“I think whether I believe he deserved it is not really the issue. The Nobel committee would seem to think so.”
