President Barack Obama accepted his Nobel Peace Prize in Norway December 10. Here is his acceptance speech in which he reminds the audience that he is the commander-in-chief of a country and military that is currently involved in two different wars, one of which seems to be nearing resolution but the other is not.
I think it was rather silly giving Obama the Nobel Peace Prize, and I think the silliness cheapens the award. But, it wasn’t Obama’s fault that he won and he once again reminded the planet what a great motivational speaker he is, especially in contrast to our previous president who was rarely regarded as “inspirational,” even by his supporters.
