"Obama's deeds do not match his words."   Evalyn S., Walnut Creek, CA

"You lost any credibility giving Obama the peace prize. Fix it."   Camilo B., Long Beach, CA

"Obama's harsh treatment of whistleblowers who are trying to expose the outlandish abuses of the military/corporate state disqualify him from any awards given to peacemakers."   David L., Alamosa, CO

"It's real sad that the promises that were made by Barack Obama concerning nearly everything have been lost with his sellout to corporate greed. We need a real leader for Peace."   Al B., Ignacio, CO

"I had high hopes for this President when I voted for him. I believed him to be a peace maker, unlike the hawk who was his predecessor. However, there seems to be no effort at peacemaking, at reconciliation,   at hope, and killing-by-drone simply leads to more fear and hatred. I fear the day that the government will try to control US with them, too."    Louise A., Greenfield, MA

"You gave him the Nobel Peace Prize too soon. His use of drones and killing of innocent civilians attests to his being anything but a peace-maker."   Rev. Sandy G., San Francisco, CA

"It is not a good example of what peace means when the Nobel Prize is awarded to the leader of a nation engaging in war as a business strategy. Make a statement, please."   Chandra P., Walsenburg, CO

"I, like so many others, gave this man the benefit of the doubt. It has been thrown back in our faces."   Chris C., Harrogate, Great Britain

"He never deserved it and he hasn't earned it. Yes, please, take it back."   Jackie F., Oakland, CA

 "The Nobel Peace Prize should not be awarded to war mongers and war criminals. Therefore, please revoke the Peace Prize you awarded to President Obama in 2009."   Fred N., Pleasanton, CA

"It is with deepest regret we ask for this but our President's actions have not lived up to the high honor of promoting peace."  GlendaRae H., South Bend, IN

"I don't think anyone ever understood what Obama was supposed to have done to have deserved the Peace Prize in the first place. And I'm a lifelong Democrat, so my feeling that the Nobel Committee made a mistake is not based in political partisanship."  Steve J., Hermosa Beach, CA

"It appears that preemptive peace prizes work about as well as preemptive wars."   Jaan C., Alameda, CA
