Powerline got an email from Kristofer Harrison, who helped with the Bush administration's Afghanistan review.  He says Cheney was right and that they did loads of work that they passed on, no strings attached, to Obama.

The Chicago mob's behavior is unbelievably unseemly. Here they were given an immense amount of material, a complete strategic review and plan with the author's heading left blank. President Bush felt it was his duty to do so. And all Obama can do is smear president Bush, even after he filled his own name into the author's column.

Read the whole thing.

P.S.  Yes, what airforcewife said.  See comments.

While at my grandmother's, I had dial-up for a few days.  And then, we exhausted her monthly usage.  Take a moment and turn your mental clock back waaay to when you paid per minute and only got a certain number of hours per month.  On dial-up.  Oy.  We knocked it out in no time flat.  So come Wednesday morning, I had no more internet for the week.

Friday my husband called and said that he didn't have access either, though for a sadder reason than I.  He then said that he thought a buddy was pulling his leg by saying that Pres Obama had won the Nobel Peace Prize.

I was at the lunch table with several relatives.  I could've asked them if they'd heard about this news, but honestly, I thought it was too absurd to repeat out loud.  I would've felt more serious asking, "Hey, have you guys heard that some people see Elvis at 7-11?"  I mean, I just thought it was too stupid to repeat.


I hung up the phone and everyone at the table wondered what my husband had asked me about.  So I had to say it.

And then found out it was true.

Let me repeat for emphasis: I thought the mere fact of asking my relatives if Pres Obama had won the Nobel Peace Prize was too embarrassing.

Imagine my embarrassment when I found out he did.

Man, I missed a good day to be on the internet.  I hear people had mad jokes.

On September 24, Obama ostentatiously presided over the Security Council. With 14 heads of state (or government) at the table, with an American president in the chair for the first time ever, with every news camera in the world trained on the meeting, it would garner unprecedented worldwide attention.

Unknown to the world, Obama had in his pocket explosive revelations about an illegal uranium-enrichment facility that the Iranians had been hiding near Qom. The French and the British were urging him to use this most dramatic of settings to stun the world with the revelation and to call for immediate action.

Obama refused. Not only did he say nothing about it, but, reports Le Monde, Sarkozy was forced to scrap the Qom section of his speech. Obama held the news until a day later — in Pittsburgh. I’ve got nothing against Pittsburgh (site of the G-20 summit), but a stacked-with-world-leaders Security Council chamber, it is not.

Why forgo the opportunity? Because Obama wanted the Security Council meeting to be about his own dream of a nuclear-free world. The president, reports the New York Times, citing “White House officials,” did not want to â€œdilute” his disarmament resolution “by diverting to Iran.”

Diversion? It’s the most serious security issue in the world. A diversion from what? From a worthless U.N. disarmament resolution?

Yes. And from Obama’s star turn as planetary visionary: “The administration told the French,” reports the Wall Street Journal, “that it didn’t want to ‘spoil the image of success’ for Mr. Obama’s debut at the U.N.”

"Spoil the image of success."  Not real success, but the image.

Our president is a narcissist.
