188. Maybe?
Maybe some peoples confusion about why Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize has to do with how the media in the good old US likes to focus on things like teabaggers and birthers. Usually when the President travels overseas they focus more on things like 'well he said X how do you think that will play with independents in the next election'. I have to admit I do not consider myself well informed on all his diplomatic and multilateral efforts outside of the US but I will take it for granted that those on the Peace Prize committee have looked to his efforts and have obviously found them worthy of this prize (oh and by the way I really doubt a bunch of Norwegians really care that much about the internal politics of the US)
