So the Republican National Committee, still giddy Chicago didn’t get the 2016 Olympics releases this statement:
The real question Americans are asking is, ‘What has President Obama actually accomplished?’ It is unfortunate that the president’s star power has outshined tireless advocates who have made real achievements working towards peace and human rights. One thing is certain—President Obama won’t be receiving any awards from Americans for job creation, fiscal responsibility, or backing up rhetoric with concrete action.
The Democratic National Committee basically responds by asking whey Republican hate America with this little press release:
The Republican Party has thrown in its lot with the terrorists —the Taliban and Hamas this morning —in criticizing the President for receiving the Nobel Peace prize. Republicans cheered when America failed to land the Olympics and now they are criticizing the President of the United States for receiving the Nobel Peace prize—an award he did not seek but that is nonetheless an honor in which every American can take great pride—unless of course you are the Republican Party. The 2009 version of the Republican Party has no boundaries, has no shame and has proved that they will put politics above patriotism at every turn. It’s no wonder only 20 percent of Americans admit to being Republicans anymore—it’s an embarrassing label to claim.
Now personally as both a liberal and Obama fan I don’t think he has done anything in his first nine months of office to warrant a Nobel Peace Prize, yet my gosh Republicans attempt to show a little class. I might also add if you are going to say, “the president’s star power has outshined tireless advocates who have made real achievements [….]” why not list those people you think more deserving than Obama.
