    Time Selects Obama as 2012 Person of the Year

    Time magazine has named President Barack Obama as its 2012 Person of the Year.

    "We are in the midst of historic cultural and demographic changes," Time managing editor Richard Stengel said in announcing its choice. "And Obama is both the symbol and in some ways the architect of this new America."

    The president's reelection in November showed "the Obama effect was not ephemeral anymore, no longer reducible to what had once been mocked as that 'hopey-changey stuff,'" Time's Michael Scherer wrote in the accompanying cover story. "It could be measured in wars stopped and started; industries saved, restructured or reregulated; tax cuts extended; debt levels inflated; terrorists killed; the health-insurance system reimagined; and gay service members who could walk in uniform with their partners. It could be seen in the new faces who waited hours to vote and in the new ways campaigns are run. America debated and decided this year: history would not record Obama’s presidency as a fluke."

    The cover features a silver border--just the fourth time in Time's 89-year-history the magazine was published without its trademark red. Time.com also published a slideshow featuring "never-before-seen images of the Obama presidency" from Election Night to Newtown.

    Earlier this month, the magazine's online readers voted for North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as their choice for Person of the Year in what Time called a "completely unscientific" poll.

    The Person of the Year, instituted in 1927, is "bestowed by the editors on the person or persons who most affected the news and our lives, for good or ill, and embodied what was important about the year." Obama was chosen as the 2008 Person of the Year following his historic election.....snip~

    With all this Leading From Behind and avoiding issues. One can see just how Bias Time's Editor has become. Myself I think they Should have gave it to the Pakistani Girl who Got Shot in her Face For Trying to Learn.

    Jesus, they are sucking him way too hard. Someone should tell the editor that Obama is not gay.

    Seriously, could they butter up a turd any more?

    Well... it is not like we didn't see something like this coming. Now all we need is the Nobel institution to give him a second Nobel Peace Prize and history will repeat itself.

    I thought it was funny for Time Mag to say the Poll over Kim Jong Un was "completely unscientific".....course if they would have to put it thru Twitter than we could have seen if Obama could have actually beaten The Korean Leader.

    Well did anyone think ABC and Time Mag. wouldn't take the chance to try and pump up Obama as having a successful Presidency. Anything to change historical facts, now.

    I remember "Man of the Year", and then political correctness took over.
    Our President should be "Man of the Year".
    And then we should have a "Woman of the Year".
    "person" is so blah....so neutral
    There is a difference between the two...
