When she has to pay 100 rupees for onions, she is not going to smile any more. With oil prices gone up, the cost of all the essential commodities have gone soaring high.
Who has wiped the smile from her face ?
President Barack Obama.
He does not deserve an inch of the Nobel prize that was thrust on him without any significant achievement in any field.
This is a very strange case.
This perhaps was the first time that the world accepted one person as a world leader.
He became a symbol of hope over night.
There were many expectations of him.
Perhaps that is why he was awarded a Nobel Prize expecting him to bring peace in the world and close the ever growing gap between the rich and the poor which has gone to staggering levels now.
i understand this is not easy. This can't be done in a short period.
No steps were taken in two years of Presidency
First thing he was expected to do was to lower or control the oil prices, which are connected to almost everything. He couldn't control the inflation.
Please remember these are the views of an outsider, i am not an American. He must have done a few good things for the US citizens, i am not concerned about that. i am talking about President Obama as a world leader.
START did not make him a world leader either.
START is a joke. Russia is ruled by a bunch of thugs. You can't have a treaty with them. 2000 nukes and just two nukes make no difference at all. Reduction is not a solution. And you can't control China's nukes. There is no point in START with any one. It was a waste of time and money.
Reduction in oil prices, controlling the inflation and bringing an end to the war will make him a world leader. He has less than two years to become one. He is running out of time. Unfortunately he is turning out to be just another Corporate stooge like the Presidents of past few decades.
