Even Obama's people didn't think he deserved Nobel Prize... - 05-15-2014, 09:28 PM

Then-presidential Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel gave Norway's U.S. ambassador "a dressing down" in 2009 after President Barack Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, according to Norway's former delegate to the United Nations.

Morten Wetland, Norway's former UN ambassador, told Norwegian English-language news site The Local that Emanuel used the word "fawning" when talking to U.S. Ambassador Wegger Strömmen about the award, which is given out by the Nobel Committee based in Norway.

"My guess is that the president’s staff want to be in control and not to be forced into a position that they have not been seeking themselves," Wetland told The Local. "It could have been perceived that someone was consciously or subconsciously thinking about the prospect of having Obama visit Norway. Obama wouldn’t have visited Norway if it hadn’t have been for the Peace Prize."

According to the Associated Press, Wetland said he didn't see the dressing down, but said there was an air of embarrassment in Washington DC about Obama getting the award.

"What I know for a fact is that (Emanuel) gave the ambassador some words, 'a dressing down', with respect to this," Wetland said, according to The Local. "The word 'fawning' was used."

Stories of Emanuel losing his temper are legion, both while he was working in Washington D.C. and since he became Chicago mayor. Emanuel has at times in recent years dismissed these outbursts as the actions of a younger man, while at others cultivating his image as a hard charger who's not afraid of rubbing people the wrong way.

Wetland, who first revealed the incident in an opinion piece he wrote for Norway's Dagens Næringsliv business paper, said he believed Emanuel understood the Nobel committee's decisions were separate from the government, but said it was usual for ambassadors to bear the brunt of positive and negative impressions of their country.

In awarding the Peace Prize to Obama, the committee noted his work on global warming and his support of the United Nations, among other ways they said he was committed to helping the United States engage with the rest of the world. But Obama had been in office only about two weeks before the deadline to get nominated for the prize.

Last week on one of Chicago's major tv channels they did an investigative report of rahm's staff driving him around......They showed his 2 vehicle convoy running red lights and going over the speed limit even in school zones....The traffic cameras that he wanted to catch people doing this caught him.....He is a real control freak...

School zone speed laws are enforced when kids are present. Were there kids present? I highly doubt it.

You mentioned a convoy, they are usually behind and in front. I think it was safe.

Apparently this informing is achieved by posting a plethora of misinformation in the form of opinions dressed up like facts.
