The thing I find most objectionable about this Nobel Prize thing is Obama gets control of the money. Yeah he's "giving it to charity." But what charity? Is it a charity I support? Will he get a tax deduction? (Will his 2009 income tax show the income?)

When I worked as an employee for someone else, and did something that generated income, the income went to my employer. I got a regular paycheck, not the total profit of the work I'd done to spend as I wished.
Obama works for us (U.S.) Yes he works hard, but he gets a paycheck, and the fringe benefits he earns are off the charts. He won the prize in the course of doing his job.

In this case, I actually agree with George W. Bush.
The prize money belongs to the United States of America, not to Obama. He should sign it over to the U.S. Treasury.
