Obama’s Big Bus Side Swipes King Of Norway During Nobel Visit

As I write this, the award ceremony is in full swing, and Barry is sitting in the audience with a monstrously smug look upon his face, reminding me more of one of the thug type football players just drafted with his chin up in the air. Football watchers know what I mean. Meanwhile, it doesn’t seem you can take Barry anywhere

Barack Obama’s trip to Oslo to pick up his Nobel peace award is in danger of being overshadowed by a row over the cancellation of a series of events normally attended by the prizewinner.

Norwegians are incensed over what they view as his shabby response to the prize by cutting short his visit.

The White House has cancelled many of the events peace prize laureates traditionally submit to, including a dinner with the Norwegian Nobel committee, a press conference, a television interview, appearances at a children’s event promoting peace and a music concert, as well as a visit to an exhibition in his honour at the Nobel peace centre.

He has also turned down a lunch invitation from the King of Norway.

According to a poll published by the daily tabloid VG, 44% of Norwegians believe it was rude of Obama to cancel his scheduled lunch with King Harald, with only 34% saying they believe it was acceptable.

Good job, Chump! Pissing off yet another ally. And, why does he hate kids? But, wait, there’s more!

“Michelle and I were commenting on the fact that when Dr. King won his price it had a galvanizing effect around the world, but also lifted his stature in the United States in a way that allowed him to be more effective,” he added. “And that’s a legacy of the Nobel Committee that we’re very grateful for.”

So, now he is comparing himself, even a tiny bit, to Martin Luther King, Jr? Disgusting. Obama isn’t a 1/16th of the man Dr. King was.

    Also in the story you linked:

    The Norwegian Nobel committee, which awards the peace prize, dismissed the criticism. “We always knew that there were too many events in the programme. Obama has to govern the US and we were told early on that he could not commit to all of them,” said Geir Lundestad, secretary of the committee.

    Although Obama will not lunch with King Harald, he will see him on a visit to the royal palace.

    If he went to all of those events, you’d have a post about how he’s too busy being an international celebrity to run our country. Nothing like a little Obama Derangement Syndrome, huh?

    Nice reference there – 1/16th. Very subtle, yet effective…
