President Obama wins Nobel Peace Prize

OSLO – President Barack Obama won the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize on Friday for "his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples," the Norwegian Nobel Committee said, citing his outreach to the Muslim world and attempts to curb nuclear proliferation.

The Nobel committee praised Obama's creation of "a new climate in international politics" and said he had returned multilateral diplomacy and institutions like the U.N. to the center of the world stage. The plaudit appeared to be a slap at President George W. Bush from a committee that harshly criticized Obama's predecessor for resorting to largely unilateral military action in the wake of the Sept. 11 terror attacks.

I hope Bush is choking on his own spittle right now. I mean, damn! Just when you think the contrast between President Obama and 'w' couldn't be made any more clear.

It is so nice to have a President who isn't reviled by the world at large. Now if only he'd prosecute Bush and Cheney for their war crimes...

Just got a call from [livejournal.com profile] kyburg, we recieved a bunch of new pictures of Xander today. All posted on [livejournal.com profile] xanxanbell but I'll post them here too for convenience.

OMG OMG, he's looking at us! And he's smiling!

Maybe, just maybe, he'll not want to run away in terror when he meets us in a little less than 3 weeks.

I can see the gears turning in his head from the pictures. I think he's wrapping his head around the idea. It looks awfully good from here.

I mean, wow! That's my son!

(Note to self, need new icons)
