Dalai Lama states that Obama is being Awarded Nobel Peace Prize too Early?
According to Fox News early this morning, the Dalai Lama has stated in regards to Obama`s Nobel Peace Prize: I think if you are realistic, it may have been a little early but it doesn`t matter, I know Obama is a very able person. Sometimes these individual persons rely on different advice from different people so like former President Bush junior, as a human being I really love him, really wonderful person, very honest, very truthful. " The full report on Sky news reveals that Fox left out this line: but I think due to his advisors views, some of his policies have been a disaster, so it happens. " Fox apparently added a period after the word truthful ". I feel the Dalai Lama is a wise and noble person. I do not always agree with the Tibetans religious views, mainly the literal reincarnation ideas, but the Dalai Lama`s compassion is noble and true.
When I recalled today the Nobel Peace Prize award for Obama, I had a similar reaction as the Dalai Lama; I said out loud already? " However, my next thoughts were focused on my confidence in the President and the work he is doing. Obama is a very able person just like the Dalai Lama has stated. Perhaps conservative politics are being ignored, who knows if all Obama`s plans for the country will be successful, whatever the case he is at least able to help people, a lot of people. I don`t like following politics because my views shift from day to day. My thoughts on what people have done for the world do not though. A plan for universal healthcare whether successful or not, is in intention a plan to help Americans. A plan to use American soldiers to hunt out non-existent weapons is cruel and malevolent. I am not Republican or Democrat, and I hate politics, but compassion I am always striving for and it is compassionate people that I admire. In terms of compassion, Obama is compassionate. George Bush junior " as the Dalai Lama put it, was very truthful "in his lack of compassion. Yet, I do feel compassion for Republicans, even those without compassion. When I say hate " I do not mean it the way they do, I do not hate people, I hate wrong views!
