    Be sure that the years that Hitler & Stalin were named Man of the Year, their influence on the world was significant.

    Its not a popularity contest. Its about significance.

    You misunderstand the purpose of the publication.

    The award isn't always handed out to a "positive" person(s), it is also given to "negative" person(s). I think "The Protester" is very vauge and open to interpretation as to whether it is good or bad. Whether one agrees with OWS, the Arab Spring, the Tea Party or any other movement, doesn't diminish it's influence around the globe in the past couple of years, more so this year. While I may disagree with Time's "angle" so to speak, I felt it was a fitting "Person of the Year" and find no fault with it. Only the truly partisan from either side would see this as anything other than fitting IMO.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    Tea Party protest = bad
    OWS protest = good

    Now you know Hugh how they should be rated.

    There's no stipulation that the person of the year can't be an asshole. Just someone who significantly influenced events, who was consistently newsworthy.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
