Hell yeah!

Spencer gets it...
The issue is not Barack Obama. It’s what the president represents internationally: a symbol of an America that is willing, once again, to drive the international system forward, together, toward the humane positive-sum goals of peace and disarmament. The fact that Obama hasn’t gotten the planet there misses the point entirely. It’s that he’s beginning, slowly, to take the world again down the path.
Real Americans are pleased and proud today, of our nation and of the President who represents us on the world stage.

Congratulations, President Obama! Congratulations, America!

It is pathetic that the Nobel committee chose to give the Peace price to someone who has done nothing to deserve it. There are far more worthy candidates for the Peace Prize.

When I first about the president getting the Nobel Peace Prize, from Al Runte, when we were in line for coffee at Cloud City Coffee, the thought came to mind that it might be a joke. Not having read the sole remaining Seattle daily newspaper, nor looked at a news site - yet - and knowing Al's sense of humor, I was perplexed.

So I asked, not rhetorically, "What's he done to deserve that?"

I mean no disrespect to the president; as I told Al, when we got outside, sat down and he convinced me that it had really happened, I said, "It's not as if he's ended a war between Japan and Russia." (Theodore Roosevelt did that, back in the early part of the last century.)

I've since read David Horsey's column today on why it makes sense. Sorry, it still seems incredibly politically motivated and just a bit silly.

I'm glad that it's Bo's birthday. Call me picky, but I still wish the Obamas had picked up a shelter dog. Then, I wouldn't begrudge him the Nobel Prize. Yeah, that's silly; but I'm an animal lover.

Still, that's just my opinion and I could be wrong.
