Former President Barack Obama has been named the 2017 “Profile in Courage” award honoree by the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation, CNN reports.

The foundation said Thursday it is recognizing Obama for “expanding health security for millions of Americans, restoring diplomatic relations with Cuba and leading a landmark international accord to combat climate change.”

The award, created in 1989, is given to a public official or group of public servants from any level of government each year “whose actions demonstrate the qualities of politically courageous leadership in the spirit of ‘Profiles in Courage,’ President Kennedy’s 1957 Pulitzer prize-winning book,” according to the Profile in Courage award website.

  1. ‘Profiles In Courage” is an excellent book about people who willingly sacrificed their political futures in order to do something that was right and honorable. Ex-president Obama did no such thing. Whatever you think of his agenda and accomplishments, he served two full terms and sacrificed no part of his political future with any of his policies, executive orders, pardons or anything else that’s within a president’s power. And no, demonizing Israel is not courageous.
    Let him put this award in his trophy case next to his Nobel Prize (which was even more undeserved).

  2. The filthy bum made same gender marriage the law of the land! These 2 creeps deserve each other. The Kennedys & the Obama’s.

  3. Shocking he just stacked the deck appointing his enables to the board of the Kennedy foundation a day before he left office …sicko!

  4. Maybe he should have received the “worst plummer award” for filling up this country with every sort of …..
