This is too good to not comment about. I don’t know if the tears are from laughter, from pain or from hysteria!
There was an extraordinary scene at the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo Friday morning. The prize went to imprisoned Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo, who was barred by the Chinese government from attending the ceremony. It was the first time since 1935 — when the prize went to a winner imprisoned in one of Adolf Hitler’s concentration camps — that the Peace Prize winner or his representative did not appear personally to accept the award.* Liu’s absence was symbolized by an empty chair on stage.
So on this notable occasion, the White House released a statement from President Obama on the awarding of the prize to Liu in absentia. And this is how Obama’s statement began:
“One year ago, I was humbled to receive the Nobel Peace Prize — an award that speaks to our highest aspirations, and that has been claimed by giants of history and courageous advocates who have sacrificed for freedom and justice.”
Pick me up off the floor.
Yes, you read that right, it’s all about him. Our Dear Leader has placed himself among the “giants of history” as well as those “courageous advocates who have sacrificed for freedom and justice.”
I seriously need to have a little of what he’s on … what has he been a courageous advocate of ??? He “won” the prize after he spent 2 years being an advocate for… HIMSELF… Is HOPING for CHANGE courageous? Then where is my Nobel Peace Prize? Hand them out to everyone reading this blog, “who sacrificed for freedom and justice.”
PLEEZZZE…what has he sacrificed ???? Let alone for freedom and justice???
This is mind blowing to me– let’s keep this in context Obama is giving a speech to honor Liu Xiaobo… and somehow Obama, a man living in the WHITE HOUSE, manages to equate himself to a man imprisoned in China.
Well then on the other hand Obama has also equated himself with Martin Luther King, Mother Teresa you know those other “giants of history and courageous advocates who have sacrificed for freedom and justice.”
I need to go back to bed.
