Ronald Reagan made actual, real nuclear weapons reductions after some tough, John Wayne-style negotiations with the Soviets in Iceland.  BHO gets a peace prize for a “change in global mood wrought by Obama’s calls for peace and cooperation”.  IOW, for talk and promises.

A prize already severely cheapened by going to Yasser Arafat somehow manages to sink even lower. The winning strategy now is clearly to denigrate or harm the United States in some manner. Can Hugo Chavez be far behind?
