Michael Steele Attacks Obama Over Nobel Peace Prize. Yes, Really.

The Republican National Committee has issued a political response to the president’s Nobel Peace Prize, blasting the Nobel Committee for denying the prize to unnamed “tireless advocates” and attacking the president’s domestic record. The quote, from RNC Chairman Michael Steele:
The real question Americans are asking is, “What has President Obama actually accomplished?” It is unfortunate that the president’s star power has outshined tireless advocates who have made real achievements working towards peace and human rights. One thing is certain — President Obama won’t be receiving any awards from Americans for job creation, fiscal responsibility, or backing up rhetoric with concrete action.
In recent years, really since the prize was awarded to Yasir Arafat, conservatives have attacked it as an award the America-hating parts of the world like to give out to promote their hatred. This, however, seems like a hasty statement from the opposition party.
