Obama’s Nobel Understatement
by

As Liu Xiaobo was bestowed with the Nobel Peace Prize in absentia, President Obama issued a statement that Liu “is far more deserving of the award than I was.”

That is the understatement of the year.

While it may have been an attempt at modesty on the part of the President it is only a further indication of how undeserving he was of the honor in the first place.  Granted, the Nobel Committee was guilty of poor judgment and should have exercised greater prudence in its deliberation.  But President Obama should have had the good sense to politely decline the award and declare it should go to an individual “far more deserving.” 

Like Liu Xiaobo.
