Jon Lovitz slams Obama's Nobel Peace Prize: 'You didn't earn that'
Former Saturday Night Live star Jon Lovitz is continuing his campaign against President Barack Obama. After his very profane, angry attacks on the president’s tax policy — Lovitz is now taking aim at the Nobel Peace Prize the president won back in 2010. The Huffington Post reports:
Jon Lovitz is continuing a new phase of his career: A vocal critic of President Obama. In his latest attack, Lovitz tweeted a picture apparently meant as a criticism of Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize.
In the tweet, Lovitz posted a picture of Obama holding the prize, which was awarded to him in 2010 amid criticism that he had not yet done enough to deserve the prestigious award. Lovitz’s caption reads, “Nobel Peace Prize? You didn’t earn that. Somebody else made that happen.”
The text is a takeoff of a recent quote from Obama that has been widely slammed by his Republican opponents. In a speech, Obama emphasized his belief that the government is instrumental in helping people achieve success, saying in part, “If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.” Some have taken the statement as proof that Obama believes the government is responsible for any individual’s personal triumphs.
