WASHINGTON–President Obama said he was “surprised and deeply humbled” with his winning Friday of the Nobel Peace Prize.

“Well, this is not how I expected to wake up this morning,” Obama said, commenting in the Rose Garden about being awarded a prize he did not seek. “After

I received the news, Malia walked in and said, “Daddy, you won the

Nobel Peace Prize, and it is Bo’s birthday.” And then Sasha added,

“Plus we have a three-day weekend coming up.” So it’s good to have

kids to keep things in perspective.

“I am both surprised and deeply humbled by the decision of the

Nobel committee. Let me be clear. I do not view it as a recognition

of my own accomplishments, but rather as an affirmation of American

leadership on behalf of aspirations held by people in all nations.”

“I will accept this award as a call to action,” Obama said.
