Every year the president of USA invites the journalists that works at the White House Correspondents’ Association to the Correspondents’ Dinner which was held on May 1st, 2010. President Barack Obama makes fun of journalists, politicians and himself.
At the Norwegian Comedy Award in the fall of 2009, the comedian Are Kalvø held a great parody of Barack Obama. Watch the video I found on YouTube. Jump to around 1 minute to see the start of the parody. The first minute is in Norwegian, the parody in it self is in English. Enjoy!
This years Nobel Peace Prize for 2009 goes to the president Barack Obama. It’s an interesting choice, since he haven’t been president for that long. But he do have visions, and that is probably the reason he got this years prize.
The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided that the Nobel Peace Prize for 2009 is to be awarded to President Barack Obama for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples. The Committee has attached special importance to Obama’s vision of and work for a world without nuclear weapons.
Obama has as President created a new climate in international politics. Multilateral diplomacy has regained a central position, with emphasis on the role that the United Nations and other international institutions can play. Dialogue and negotiations are preferred as instruments for resolving even the most difficult international conflicts. The vision of a world free from nuclear arms has powerfully stimulated disarmament and arms control negotiations. Thanks to Obama’s initiative, the USA is now playing a more constructive role in meeting the great climatic challenges the world is confronting. Democracy and human rights are to be strengthened.
Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world’s attention and given its people hope for a better future. His diplomacy is founded in the concept that those who are to lead the world must do so on the basis of values and attitudes that are shared by the majority of the world’s population.
For 108 years, the Norwegian Nobel Committee has sought to stimulate precisely that international policy and those attitudes for which Obama is now the world’s leading spokesman. The Committee endorses Obama’s appeal that “Now is the time for all of us to take our share of responsibility for a global response to global challenges.”
I’m not an American, but I do like Barack Obama as the president for the US. He is also a great comedian. At the this years White House Correspondents’ Dinner he did real well. You can watch his stand-up act in the video below.
Barack Hussein Obama was inaugurated as President of the United States today. He is the 44th president of USA and the first black president. He have a lot to do after 8 years of the Bush administration. I think Obama will be a great president for the americans.
Barack Obama is the new President of the United States of America. He is the first black person to enter the White House as a President. I think the American people made a good choice in electing the right person for President. The new Visepresident is Joe Biden. John McCain and Sarah Palin lost with a great margin.
