Republicans echo Taliban in condemning Obama's Nobel Peace Prize

The Republican National Committee, still giddy over America losing its bid to host the 2016 Olympics, had this to say about the President of the United States being award the Nobel Peace Prize:

The real question Americans are asking is, ‘What has President Obama actually accomplished?’ It is unfortunate that the president’s star power has outshined tireless advocates who have made real achievements working towards peace and human rights. One thing is certain – President Obama won’t be receiving any awards from Americans for job creation, fiscal responsibility, or backing up rhetoric with concrete action.

Their statement echoed the Taliban's criticism of Obama's selection for the prestigous award.
"We have seen no change in his strategy for peace. We condemn the award of the Nobel Peace Prize for Obama" Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told AFP.

The real question patriotic Americans are asking is, "Why do Republicans hate America?" Or as the Democratic National Committee put it:

Republicans cheered when America failed to land the Olympics and now they are criticizing the President of the United States for receiving the Nobel Peace prize — an award he did not seek but that is nonetheless an honor in which every American can take great pride — unless of course you are the Republican Party.

The 2009 version of the Republican Party has no boundaries, has no shame and has proved that they will put politics above patriotism at every turn. It’s no wonder only 20 percent of Americans admit to being Republicans anymore – it’s an embarrassing label to claim.
