Hypocrisy: 2009 Nobel Peace Prize Winner Hosted a Lavish Dinner for Man Holding 2010 Winner Prisoner

Liu Xiaobo

The hypocrisy of President Obama is mind-blowing. He accepted the 2009 Nobel peace prize for good will as opposed to actual accomplishments. A little over one year later he hosts a lavish state dinner for China's President Hu Jintao. Meanwhile, President Hu Jintao is holding 2010 Nobel Prize winner Liu Xiaobo prisoner. Liu Xiaobo is a democracy activist. When Obama won the Nobel Prize, he claimed it was a "call to action."
Obama said he viewed the decision less as a recognition of his own accomplishments and more as "a call to action."
It's starting to look more like a call to the dinner table. I wonder what Liu Xiaobo had for dinner that night?
