"But when the cloud of rhetoric has passed ... when the roar of the crowd fades away ... when the stadium lights go out, and those Styrofoam Greek columns are hauled back to some studio lot — what exactly is our opponent's plan? What does he actually seek to accomplish, after he's done turning back the waters and healing the planet? The answer is to make government bigger ... take more of your money ... give you more orders from Washington ... and to reduce the strength of America in a dangerous world." -Sarah Palin RNC acceptance speech 9/3/2008She called out Obama in a big way there. She saw through his facade and cut to the true Obama politician: the one who believes in maximum government control and how he wants to weaken America. She perfectly described his character as one of rhetoric over accomplishment, and a dangerous idealogue. Palin again predicted the future accurately in her RNC speech made over a year ago. Obama is still continually crafting that image. All of Obama's speeches/apologies - Cairo, the U.N., the Olympics committee, etc. are part of his craft in progress. If you remember it's the same rhetoric he used during the campaign and he's still perpetually campaigning.
The Nobel committee is helping to craft the image that Obama wants to be, and try to recapture that campaign-mode spirit he once had. They've shown the ultimate desperation to get back to "blame it on Bush" with this prize. But Americans are not going to be deceived by this latest bit of political theater. They are now questioning and laughing at the Nobel Peace Prize being awarded to Obama. His crafted image is wearing very thin and it seems like the only ones left who still believe it are Obama and his circle.
We see the Nobel Peace Prize "win" for what it is: an embarassment to Obama and his career. This award comes dangerously close to his Presidency being one big joke.
