When I was a child it seemed like the Nobel Peace Prize was given to people who made real contributions to humanity. To me the Nobel Peace Prize means nothing anymore.

From my perspective, all Obama has done is to play the superstar has not fixed anything but has weakened the U.S. economically and politically around the world. The massive spending programs will bankrupt the country. The cap and trade policy will destroy what industry remains in the U.S. further strengthening the economies of China and India, etc., who will not abide by any global warming treaty. Green energy is wonderful, but it is not cost effective, using today's technology with wind costing three times and solar costing eight times the current cost of production. Who will pay for the high cost of electricity?

Obama needs to quit apologizing to the world and start being proud to be an American. America is the only country I know of that has given aid to the entire world and not taken anything in return.

Obama needs to worry less about the Muslims around the world and start making decisions that put the U.S. first. Quit looking for more handouts and start generating more jobs for the U.S. citizens. Reported unemployment of nine percent does not show the true number of unemployed and underemployed Americans, but looks better than the real 15 or 16 percent unemployment number. Energy policy should make us energy independent with both short and long term solutions that don't reward or support our enemies that want to kill us and don't bankrupt us either to pay for them.

If I am wrong, please show me the facts that prove otherwise.
