Dopey WNJ Letter of the Week

Bill Toomey of Newark must have experienced something akin to Jay Leno's "Jay Walking" segment:

President Barack Obamaís Nobel Peace Prize was predictably met with derision among so many of his hate-mongering critics. Yet, Iíve talked to more than 20 Obama haters since the award was announced, and not one of them was able to offer a single semi-coherent thought on who they felt was more deserving of the award.

Countless scientific international polls show that respect for this country plummeted around the globe in the first eight years of this century. That respect is gradually being restored, largely thanks to the Nobel recipient.

For once, it would be refreshing if the most severe Obama haters could have their opinions drawn from objective perspectives rather than from irrationally visceral and emotionally driven vantage points.

I am sure that by "semi-coherent thought" Toomey really means "reasons I didn't agree with." And, using the principle of Occam's Razor, the simplest answer to Toomey's question is "Practically anybody but Barack Obama." Why? So what if international opinion about the US has increased since Obama has been president? Isn't the Nobel Prize intended for someone that has actually DONE SOMETHING??
