Incompetence: First look at WH pics of Obama at national security meeting?

That’s right. As Twitchy reported, President Empty Chair skipped the national security meeting on Saturday. Hey, it’s not like there is anything going on, right?

http://twitter.com/#!/Chrissyinsatx/status/439892058765946881

A bright side: Would it have really made a difference had he attended?

It’s funny, yet frightening, because it’s true.

Will these “official” White House photos be released soon?

Oh snap! CBS News’ Mark Knoller zings Obama’s book purchases

http://twitter.com/#!/markknoller/status/406852639658217472

CBS News correspondent Mark Knoller took to Twitter to report on President Obama’s Small Business Saturday shopping trip.

http://twitter.com/#!/markknoller/status/406856112130899968

Obama picked up over a dozen books, but Knoller noticed something glaringly absent from the list provided by the White House.

http://twitter.com/#!/markknoller/status/406857550416445440

Funny ’cause it’s oh-so-true! Obama can always borrow “Web Sites for Dummies” from his pal Kathleen Sebelius, but he’s got other books to get to first.

‘What happens when Obama comes to your hood’? Ask Sarah Michelle Gellar [photos]

http://twitter.com/#!/BuffySummers_96/status/492353073063288832

President Obama was in L.A. yesterday for some very important presidential business. Just kidding! He was fundraising, natch. And, just like so many times before, making L.A. traffic even more hellacious than usual.

“Buffy the Vampire Slayer” actress Sarah Michelle Gellar was just trying to run some errands. Obama had other plans:

Typical.

http://twitter.com/#!/LHayes86/status/492353528958943233

Silver lining? At least Gellar wasn’t in labor! And misery loves company, so that’s something:

‘Ouch': Polish defense officials rip ‘chickensh*t’ Obama a new one

http://twitter.com/#!/michaeldweiss/status/529277268833890304

The people of Poland are worried that they may soon have to defend against aggression from Vladimir Putin’s Russia. Some of them are not very confident that NATO will have their back, especially with Barack Obama in the White House.

The article they are referring to was posted to Business Insider earlier this week: Poland Is Preparing For A Potential Russian Invasion

The reporter spoke to an official in the Polish Ministry of Defense who was very blunt about how the Poles view President Obama.

Poles understand that without American leadership there is no NATO in any military sense. Since the onset of Putin’s aggression against Ukraine, those fears have multiplied and there are now many in Warsaw who wonder if Obama would really honor Article 5 in a crisis.

Yesterday I spoke with a top Polish MoD official, a man of sober and strongly pro-American views whom I’ve known for years. Referring to this week’s needless White House crisis with Israel, another American ally who has doubts about the current administration, he noted, “I didn’t need the Beltway media to tell me who the real chickens— is.”

“They really have no idea what they are doing,” he opined about Obama and his national security staff, “and we know it. You have no idea how many promises we’ve been given, even by the President himself, but there’s never any follow-up, it’s all talk. He thinks he’s on Oprah.”

A senior Polish Intelligence official also expressed his opinion.

In a similar vein, a senior Polish intelligence official, another veteran of long collaboration with Washington, DC, expressed his skepticism to me.

“Is it 1939 again? I don’t know,” he explained, “but I think Obama isn’t even a Chamberlain,” citing the British prime minister who left Poland in the lurch at the beginning of World War Two.

Well he did tell the Russians he’d have a lot more flexibility after he got reelected.

Jon Lovitz wants official who called Netanyahu ‘chickensh*t’ to reveal himself

http://twitter.com/#!/cwilcott/status/528033628534476800

Comedian, actor and small business owner Jon Lovitz has advised, “If you don’t want a fight with Israel, don’t pick one.” It’s also good policy for Obama administration officials not to insult Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu — especially not anonymously.

This is your chance, anonymous official.

Here’s a closing thought that makes a lot of sense.

Dems seek $100 million in taxpayer funds for Obama library; Disgust ensues

http://twitter.com/#!/iowahawkblog/status/457175122743263233

The Illinois House will vote soon on a Democrat proposal to offer $100 million in taxpayer funds to lure Barack Obama’s presidential library to the state, according to Andrew Malcolm at Investors Business Daily:

http://twitter.com/#!/AHMalcolm/status/457210728101838848

Hey, nobody expected there would be enough private funds available to construct Barack Obama’s presidential library after eight years of President Obama, did they?

The possibility of taxpayers being put on the hook to the tune of $100 million for a presidential library in a state already buried in debt is the source of anger and amazement for many:

Here’s an idea that seems to make sense:

http://twitter.com/#!/analogkid2112/status/457175896252628992

Perfect!

In total, the Obama library is expected to cost in the area of $500 million, according to the Daily Caller. How much of that burden taxpayers will be saddled with remains to be seen.

So, this is happening:

Bingo. President Stompy Foot strikes again.

The always awesome Amanda Carpenter, senior communications adviser for Sen. Cruz, rightly gave him the business.

Meet the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize winners!

Can you win the Nobel Peace Prize multiple times? Because I enjoyed Obama winning so very much in 2009 that I want it to happen again.

— Mollie (@MZHemingway) October 8, 2014

Sorry, no repeat for the president.

But well-deserved congratulations do go out to Kailash Satyarthi, a children’s rights activist from India and to Malala Yousafzai, a Pakistani teen who was shot by the Taliban because she wanted to go to school:

Kailash Satyarthi, 60, and Malala Yousafzay, 17, show that you can work for social justice at any age #NobelPrize2014 pic.twitter.com/v8ZRv8bGRa

— James Martin, SJ (@JamesMartinSJ) October 10, 2014

The Wall Street Journal has a great write-up on the two here:

Nobel Peace Prize awarded to Kailash Satyarthi and Malala Yousafzai. Details: http://t.co/U0yyWY2M84 #NobelPrize2014

— Wall Street Journal (@WSJ) October 10, 2014

As a reminder, here’s what the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize winner had to say to 2009’s winner about drone attacks:

Today, Malala Yousafzai won the Nobel Peace Prize. 2 years ago, she told Obama "drone attacks are fueling terrorism" http://t.co/BrTeCq048S

— McClatchyDC (@McClatchyDC) October 10, 2014

So, how’s that working out?

Malala’s prize is long overdue and there are many who thought she should have won it last year, like we did:

Fox Business' Charles Payne on 'euro-snob' Nobel Peace Prize committee: 'They suck' http://t.co/5yo9UxcQIg

— TwitchyTeam (@TwitchyTeam) October 11, 2013

Although there is talk that the Nobel committee is playing politics with this year’s winners, too:

The Nobel Peace Prize committee, having disgraced itself by hastily honoring Obama, stoops to play the Indian-Pakistani, Hindu-Muslim game.

— Brahma Chellaney (@Chellaney) October 10, 2014

Don't care any bit who wins Nobel Peace Prize. It's the most political of the political prizes world over. A living joke being Obama himself

— गीतिका (@ggiittiikkaa) October 10, 2014

Finally, in other Nobel Peace prize news, Americans want President Obama to give his back:

Obama ‘waves off’ Iraq question for laser-like focus on robotic giraffe

During the “White House Maker Faire” today, President Obama was singularly focused on a bio diesel car, and something else:

Wait, what?

No word yet if Obama reminded the maker of robo-giraffe that he “didn’t build that”:

Well, it’s not like there’s anything else going on in the world, right?

@markknoller MT: "BO waves off Iraq Q…he's focused on the Maker Faire projects"
Whoa, stop the world! One thing at a time.
@instapundit— Damian Bennett (@DamianBennett) June 18, 2014

If there’s ever a sitcom about the Obama administration, “One Thing at a Time” would be a good title.
