BY TIM HEALEY

President Barack Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize today, and reaction on Twitter is mixed.

Here's a sample of reaction from Chicago Twitter users:

The Nobel Price committee diminished itself by presenting this award for so little, as much if not more than it diminished itself for award the prize to Jimmy Carter as a slap at George Bush. And as that award was given solely as a slap at GW, Jimmy Carter diminished himself by accepting it.

I think there's more than politics at play. At least I'd like to hope so.

The Nobel Peace Prize became worthless as soon as they gave one to the greatest terrorist who ever existed: Arafat.
