The interviewer then told the students that it was Obama's first year in office and that the Nobel Prize Committee immediately approved his nomination and then ultimately gave the prize to him even though he had done nothing to earn it. In reviewing why the Nobel Peace Prize committee gave him the award, it was all about what Obama said, not what he had done. It was what he said about peace around the world and denuclearization; not any policies he or Democrats had implemented.
What's also terrible about what the Nobel committee did, is that there were four other nominees that made significant contributions to the world in creating a safer and healthier existence. They worked hard to accomplish what they did, yet the Nobel committee gave it to someone who had done absolutely nothing.
None of the students had heard this before, although they deserve a bit of a break because they were too young when it all happened but the fact is they made an assumption that Obama deserved it. A few of the students admitted that in their world, they mostly hear one side of the story and that they'll be more careful in the future.
When given a fair chance to hear both sides of a story, most students have common sense and can make a determination of what is and what isn't the true, but when all they hear is liberal propaganda, they don't have a fair chance to develop as a person. It's sad.
