Give The Heisman To Obama!

obama_qb.jpg


President Obama is as deserving of the Heisman Trophy as he is of a Nobel Peace Prize. Now there's a way for you to ensure that Barack Obama gets a real vote for the Heisman.

Enter "Barack Obama" as a write in candidate at ESPN. He's only 10,908 votes behind Tim Tebow as of now, and surely Obama is a better quarterback than Tebow. Tebow's great, but he's no match for "The One," just ask the Nobel committee...

The athlete with the most votes in the Nissan sponsored poll will receive one official vote in the Heisman Trophy selection process. You've seen the president play ball, right? Heisman Trophy Winners are determined by votes from 924 electors representing sportswriters and broadcasters.

The groundswell has to start somewhere...

Where's your PRAISE of THE ONE's ACCOMPLISHMENTS that EARNED this formerly prestigious award?

Or are you too busy laughing your ass off like everyone else?

Have the white flags been ordered for Afghanistan yet? You know, the 'war that has to be won'?

Kevin Author Profile Page:

I don't know where Adriane is getting his information from, but that's not what he told CNN.

"I can't divine all their intentions, but I think part of their decision-making was expectations," McCain told CNN's John King. "And I'm sure the president understands that he now has even more to live up to."

But Obama's former rival for the White House said he was happy with the decision.

"I think all of us were surprised at the decision," he said. "But I think Americans are always pleased when their president is recognized by something on this order."

Adrian...why not give him the Gold Medal for 100 Meter Dash as well???

Martin Luther King DESERVED the award for a lifetime of work, work that cost him his life!

This guy was in office for TEN eff'ing DAYS...TEN...when the nominations closed. If there is/was ANY semblance of reality to the awarding of this, it would be based on the ACCOMPLISHMENTS of the nominee at the time of the nomination!

Obama has never accomplished ANYTHING other than getting elected!

The Peace Prize is meaningless junk...and the committee a bunch of political hacks.

If Obama EVER wanted real people to respect him for REAL accomplishments he should have REFUSED the damn thing! He didn't. He is an eff'ing JOKE!

Another quote:

Speaking by telephone from an undisclosed location, Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said the U.S. bombarded the outpost with airstrikes after leaving, as well as the local police headquarters.

"This means they are not coming back," Mujahid said. "This is another victory for Taliban. We have control of another district in eastern Afghanistan."

"Right now Kamdesh is under our control, and the white flag of the Taliban is raised above Kamdesh," Mujahid said.

See how much peace God-King Obama brings?

I didn't know that affirmative action was in-

for many more bestowals upon our leader. New
awards for more categories are being drawn
up as I write. Hell, soon it will be a "prestigious" award-a week to keep him
happy and the focus of the world consciousness.
If he actually DOES something, it'll be
"Katy bar the door"....instant Sainthood,
and the keys to the Kingdom. He will have
organized the community of Man.

My leg is tingling in anticipation of statues of Obama going up. We should NOT wait for him to do something worthy of a statue (as is customary)...just assume he WILL do something worthy!!

And a few 100 foot high murals wouldn't hurt either.

P. Bunyan:

This is a stupid, wrong, and very, very bad idea--trying to get the Heisman for Obama.

Some very deserving and hard working young man should and will win the Heisman. It's not like the Nobel Peace Price that would just go to some other "progressive" Marxist if Obama didn't get it. The Nobel Peace prize is a joke and it's very fitting and proper the Obama won it. The Heisman is not a joke.

Lame post Kevin.

WildWillie:

Very telling the homogenous european's smugness at citizens of this country. They really could care less if it was Obama, it is more that GW Bush isn't in office which means the euro trash poked me in the eye. I don't take that very well.

A one time great recognition program for people who actually work dilligiently for years to attain or demonstrate peace is relegated to the trash heep. I know it, you know it, the democrats no it and now the world knows it. I feel very sorry for the next recipient whom might have actually earned it next year. No one will care because they will think the fix is in.

Nobel, trying to do pentance for the invention of destruction had created this prize for peace and now the prize itself is used as a political weapon. It is now euro-trash.

Obama should and still could refuse this award citing all the great men and women in the past that died, fought or championed peace. He could also ask them to give him time to earn it, but the egotisical, smug piece of crap is actually going to accept the award. That says a lot about Obama. ww

Well, in a little way life is making up for what Obama lost in the brain lottery.. He has contributed nothing good for the country. Unless you count 10 million jobs lost and 12 trillion in new debt a good thing.

So I guess he can have his useless award and kickback the prize money to ACORN or himself or?? Thats pretty much the same thing isnt it.

Give the man a break. After all, he has now set the example for all future politicians to follow:

"Don't do anything, don't accomplish anything, don't lie(oops, cannot include that one), do place you children and grand children into financial servitude and you will get rewarded."

A great leader, a great role model and one of history's great peace makers and it only took him twelve days - what more could you ask for?

This award has become totally meaningless and an insult to future recepients.

Where are all of the kool-aid drinkers?
Why aren't they standing up for their Messiah?
Where are their words of support?

When is the awards ceremony for his receiving of the "Medal of Honor"? After all, he is flying over seas, which to him might be quite dangerous!

PHDinCT:

There's a chain e-mail going around for other awards Obama should win:
More awards go to Obama:

1. Nobel Prize for Economics: For Fiscal Responsibility, Paying Down Debt, and Job Creation.

2. Nobel Prize for Medicine: For expanding healthcare while saving money, and getting those White House doctors new white coats.

3. Walt Disney World's Pinocchio Award: For Truth Telling and Keeping Promises (Got Guantanamo?).

4. The Emmy: Best TelePrompTer appearances.

5. Dancing with the Stars' Shooting Star Award: For lighting up the sky. Brilliantly. Briefly?

6. Schaefer Beer Award: For brokering peace with the beverage of choice. Remember, Schaefer is the one-beer-to-have-when-you're-having-more-than-one fellow over to the Rose Garden. (Let's send a case to the West Bank, and Iraq, and Afghanistan, and....Hey, wait, that will stimulate the economy).

7. American Idol Champion: Indeed. Send in your vote.

8. Cy Young Award: For throwing out the first pitch (Joe B. gets the credit).

9. Nobel Comedy Prize: For the people who voted for Obama's Peace Prize (Thanks Dean).

10. The Oscar: For writing a movie, producing, directing, financing, and marketing the best movie ever in the history of the world. Well, he might do it someday? (Craig's note: The Nobel Price is nothing but "Control Politics" from Europe. They didn't give one to Ronald Reagan who actually did something and stopped the cold war).

11. Michael Jordan Lifetime Achievement Award: For being the best basketball playing Community activist in the history of the world.

12. Honoree to replace the sitting Lincoln Award: Time to get Abe out of that chair in the Lincoln Memorial. Sculptors are preparing the seat for our new honoree.

13. Cecil D. DeMille Award: When they re-do the movie, The Ten Commandments, Obama has garnered enough votes (Hell, it was unanimous!) to secure his role as the voice of God. He has asked for a TelePrompTer just to be sure he nails it. Shouldn't be a problem....

14. People Magazine's Sexiest Person Alive: People Magazine has decided to give him this award for the next eight years! Awesome.

15. O Magazine: A New Award! Best Person Ever Ever Ever Award: Another Unanimous Winner!

16. Congressional Award: Birthday Holiday. Labor Day is out. Next Autumn we will all be celebrating Obama's Birthday as the first World holiday.

17. America's Got Talent Grand Champion: Juggling... McChrystal, Holder, Emmanuel, Clinton, Biden, Pelosi, etc....while Dancing Guantanamo, Olympics, Afghanistan, Congress, Healthcare, GM et al., ...while Singing: "Change you can believe in...;" [it's not] "Global war on terror" [it's] "Overseas Contingency Operation."...[and the final gem] "My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world....
