58% Say Politics Behind Nobel Awards

Americans appear not to be buying the idea that the Nobel Peace Prize awarded to President Barack Obama has nothing to do with politics. Only 21 percent say that politics has nothing to do with it, according to a new Rasmussen poll. It said:

Americans are much more skeptical of the motivation behind the awarding of the prestigious international Nobel Prizes following President Obama's win Friday of the Nobel Peace Prize.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 58% of American adults now believe that politics plays a role in the awarding of the Nobel Prize. That's

an 18-point jump from 40% a year ago.
Just 21% of Americans say politics does not play a role in the awarding
of the Nobel Prize. Twenty-one percent (21%) are not sure.

Might
as well throw in the Oscars too. And the Grammys. Al Gore won a Nobel,
an Oscar and a Grammy for his piece of global waring propaganda
disguised as a documentary.

Obama has won two Grammys for his reading of his books Dreams from My Father and The Audacity of Hope. (How did the Pulitzer Prize committee neglect to give Bill Ayers its book award for writing one or both?)

The
Grammys, of course, are an exclusive franchise of liberal politicians.
In addition to Obama and Gore, Sen. Al Franken (D-Miinn.), and former
presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter all have been awarded
spoken-word Grammys.
