Obama has NO Intention of Giving Back His Nobel Peace Prize

Posted by courage On March - 24 - 2011

From the beginning questions were raised regarding the legitimacy of Obama being awarded the Nobel Peace prize.  In his entire background there was nothing that warranted being given this International award.  Many chalked it up to affirmative action by the committee forever tainting the stature of the award.

Saying he is focused on ensuring that Libyans can “live out their own aspirations,” Obama defended America’s involvement in Libya,
saying, “we’re not invading a country, we’re not acting alone – we’re acting under a mandate issued by the United Nations Security Council in an unprecedented fashion and with unprecedented speed.” (emphasis mine)

What Obama is saying in this part of his statement about the Nobel Peace prize in essence,  is that a “mandate” by an international entity (the United Nations) which is not bond by the United States Constitution supersedes  his oath of office to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States.

From Webster, Mandate:

1: an authoritative command; especially : a formal order from a superior court or official to an inferior one

2: an authorization to act given to a representative <accepted the mandate of the people>

3a : an order or commission granted by the League of Nations to a member nation for the
establishment of a responsible government over a former German colony or
other conquered territory

Do any of these definitions make you feel better?  This is an ongoing pattern of the pResident, he demurs the power of his position to the United Nations with its international law.
