Peace: Bush vs. Obama

Bush met the Dalai Lama:

Obama did not meet the Dalai Lama:

Barack Obama cancels meeting with Dalai Lama 'to keep China happy'

" It means Mr Obama will become the first president not to welcome the Nobel peace prize winner to the White House since the Dalai Lama began visiting Washington in 1991."

Move Appears to Be A Nod to Chinese

" For the first time since 1991, the Tibetan spiritual leader will visit Washington this week and not meet with the president. Since 1991, he has been here 10 times. Most times the meetings have been "drop-in" visits at the White House. The last time he was here, in 2007, however, George W. Bush became the first sitting president to meet with him publicly, at a ceremony at the Capitol in which he awarded the Dalai Lama the Congressional Gold Medal, Congress's highest civilian award."

Finally our Prince of Peace accepts the Nobel:

I agree with Obama - he doesn't deserve it. Nice way to refer to your notes too, Barack, for heartfelt statements. Almost brought tears to my eyes - NOT.
