Ingrid Betancourt is a French Columbian that was held by Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia – People’s Army (FARC) for six years. Is our girlie man metro sexual prez tough enough to endure what these nasty people have to offer? Would he even have the courage to defy this group in the first place?
Denis Mukwege is a doctor that is dedicated to helping Congolese kids that have suffered sexual violence. Has Obama done anything to help anyone? Community organizing? That's just a shakedown to get money from the government. Who has he actually helped? He doesn't have the skills or the will to personally help anyone. He won't even send cash or help his own family members in Kenya. They live in dirt floored huts and are literally dirt poor.
Handicap International and Cluster Munition Coalition work to get land mines removed. The only thing Obama has removed is his political opposition. I can't think of one organization that does good works he's spoken for, or has lead, or worked for. Well, ACORN, a criminal organization, which is international, come to think of it. Good job Obama.
Hu Jia defied the Communist Chinese government with the result of spending three and a half years in prison for “inciting subversion of state power”. He's a human rights activist and blogger. Obama's administration is trying to find laws to limit bloggers in this country. Obama refused to meet the Dali Lama until after he meets with the Chinese. Obama won't even stand up to the Chicomms when there's no threat. Now there's a profile in courage.
Wei Jingsheng is also a Chinese dissident that spent seventeen years in prison and was released only after international pressure crested. I've not heard Obama speak one word of support to anyone who's liberty and rights are being violated by a ruthless regime. Instead he's reached out a hand of friendship and understanding to every brutal dictator in the world, at the same time shunning our traditional allies.
A moral man, an honorable man, a man that is about serving people, would have refused the prize while saying he doesn't deserve it; not just say it. Obama is only a man of words, not a man of action. An honorable man would violate all protocol, select one of the people mentioned above and say he was going to give the prize and money to them. Then he would give each of the others the Congressional Medal of Honor.
