First Republicans rejoice that America loses the 2016 Olympic bid and now this:

Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Michael Steele released the following statement today:

“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.”

The NY Daily News points out that it is a more negative spin than even Hamas:

Says Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh (via the wires):

“We are in need of actions, not sayings. If there is no fundamental and true change in American policies toward the acknowledgment of the rights of the Palestinian people, I think this prize won’t move us forward or backward.”

Obama has worked hard as President to turn around America’s reputation as a global citizen nation. This clearly wasn’t a rushed emotional decision. The committee is making a clear statement about the type of world leaders the world needs right now. All Americans should be proud.

Who really hates America? Conservatives are willing to take down America in their jealousy, fear and thirst for power. It’s ugly and deeply unpatriotic. It’s playa hate taken to the ultimate level.
