President has earned Nobel
Congratulations to President Obama and to the United States for his receipt of the Nobel Peace Prize.
Shame to those who denigrate the president's achievement and who put politics above patriotism.
The same folks who cheered when the United States did not win the bid to host the Olympics are jeering now. In both instances they are opposed to good things for the country they claim to love.
They miss the point of the Nobel Peace Prize. Many people are saying the president has not achieved enough in so short a time to justify the prize. That is simply not true. What the president has achieved is to turn the United States 180 degrees from aggressive, unilateral action to a position of consultation, diplomacy and interaction with the rest of the world. Because we are the central power in the world, this move, which he has already accomplished, has moved the world closer to peace.
The Nobel Peace Prize has already been earned and has been well-earned.
JOHN L. COOK, Cape Girardeau
