Hang On Just One minute

Not so fast Mr President

Not so fast Mr President

Hmm, Republicans may have a nice little draw card up their sleeve in stopping the old Obama Nobel Peace Prize train ride. Nothing like a little Constitution clause to stop the love. Oooh and I quote Article 1, Section 9…the EMOLUMENT CLAUSE…”And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince or foreign State.” Dagnabbit! If you want to be knit pickie the Nobel Peace Prize falls right under the Emolument Clause. Awkward. Ooh and that prize money he says he will give to charity and reduce his income tax by $500,000 is legally not his to give away! The gift “shall become the property of the United States.” Geez, who would want to be President!

    Loon did you wathc Q & A last night on this very question. I don’t believe he should get it either. It’s actually part of his job to promote peace!. Although I’m certainly glad he got the position. I never thought I’d see a black president in my lifetime but hey, as long as he does a good job I don’t care if he’s purple.

  2. Is the Nobel Prize awarded by a King, Prince, or foreign state? I thought it was awarded by stuffy academics of some sort.
