BOLTON TO OBAMA: GIVE THE NOBEL BACK…….

Bush U.N. Ambassador John Bolton weighs in on President Obama’s Nobel Peace prize. Not surprisingly, the mustachioed neocon takes issue with the Nobel committee’s decision. From the National Review: “He should decline it and then ask to be considered again in three or four years when he has a record.” More:
“Today’s news is just another demonstration of how politicized the Nobel Peace Prize has become, from President Carter winning in 2002, to Al Gore in 2007, and President Obama in 2009.”
“When the award was given to President Carter, the chairman of the committee said that it was a ‘kick in the leg’ to the Bush administration,” recalls Bolton. “This is yet another ‘kick in the leg’ for the Bush administration.” Bolton says the main problem is that basis for the award itself. Bolton says awards should go for deeds not words:
“Today’s prize, by the terms of the award itself, was made for President Obama’s ‘extraordinary efforts.’ The Nobel Peace Prize should be for achievement, not effort,” says Bolton. “Just look at the other Nobel prizes awarded this week, from physics to chemistry, they were given to those who have made tangible progress and achieved in their respective fields. Obama’s award is just for effort.”
