Statement from Gresham Barrett on Obama's Nobel Prize

COLUMBIA, SC - U.S. Congressman Gresham Barrett, Republican candidate for Governor, released the following statement regarding President Obama receiving the Nobel Prize:

"Congratulations to President Obama on his prize. I'm not sure what the international community loved best; his waffling on Afghanistan, pulling defense missiles out of Eastern Europe, turning his back on freedom fighters in Honduras, coddling Castro, siding with Palestinians against  Israel, or almost getting tough on Iran. The world may love it, but following in the footsteps of Jimmy Carter is not where America needs to go.  Hopefully, this surprise award will give the President cause to reevaluate his current course."
