Ken Has Nailed It

From Quadrilateral Thoughts:

But Obama’s not really done anything yet, and it remains to be seen if he will accomplish any of his goals. Afghanistan may very well fall apart. All versions of a health care bill may fail. Israel has rejected any peace settlement in the near future. It seems inevitable that Iran and North Korea are going to be having nuclear bombs for the foreseeable future. We are massively in debt to China and it doesn’t look like that’s going to change any time soon.

So what do I make of all this? More than anything else, I think it is an affirmation of Obama’s trajectory over that of the Bush administration. If there had been no Bush, Obama would not be getting this prize. It is an indication of how drastically the very election of Obama has, whether rightly or wrongly, improved the world’s perception of the United States as their friend rather than as something to be scared of.

Congratulations, Mr. President. Now go out and earn it.

    While politics may not have a place here (though I’m turning to the opinion that religion and politics should mix, and churches should turn down their tax exempt status to gain the freedom to speak as they wish) I don’t think it wise for a leader of a nation to let cheap trinkets affect their decisions. What next, cutting an album with Mile Cyrus to win the MTV video award?
