    I am NOT trying to be political, but what the fuck did he do besides get re-elected?

    Am I missing some grand accomplishment in 2012 by President Obama?

    Last time I checked, he didn't do it, Seal Team Six did, all he did was say "yes".

    But ok, I will desist. I don't see the guts involved in saying yes, kill him, but ok.

    Is Time magazine owned by George Soros too? Would explain this, most certainly.

    Think I'll print that pic off and tack it to my wall for dart practice.

    TIME’s managing editor, Rick Stengel, revealed their “Person of the Year” on Wednesday morning on Today.

    “He obviously won re-election,” Stengel said. “He won re-election despite higher unemployment rate than anyone had to face in 70 years. He’s the first Democrat to actually win two consecutive terms with over 50 percent of the vote. That’s something we haven’t seen since Franklin Delano Roosevelt. And he’s basically the beneficiary and the author of a new America. A new demographic, a new cultural America that he’s now the symbol of.”

    Obama was also the “Person of the Year” in 2008.

    The shortlist was:

    Malala Yousafzai, the young Pakistani activist who was shot in the head by the Taliban for her crusade for better girls’ education;

    U.S. president Barack Obama;

    Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi;

    Bill and Hillary Clinton for their global humanitarian and political activism.

    Two prominent business leaders also made the cut: Marissa Mayer, CEO of Yahoo!, and Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, along with the Higgs Boson — the particle of the year — and the three scientists who discovered it.

    Yousafzai was the first runner up.

    Former winners include 1938 Adolf Hitler. 1939 Joseph Stalin. 1942 Joseph Stalin again. 1957 Nikita Krushchev. 1979 Ayatullah Khomeini.

    What are you talking about? He's done a great job balancing the budget!

    Federal Spending - $3.8 Trillion
    Federal Revenues - $2.8 Trillion
    Federal Reserve Monetizing (i.e. "Money Printing" - $1 Trillion

    See, he's got it figured out. Everything is great! Just ignore the skyrocketing food and energy prices.

    Yeah, but at least the Kardashians aren't trying to fundamentally change the American Way and making us weaker in every way as a result.

    On second thought maybe they ARE!

    I'm surprised they didn't make "The Black Voter" person of the year. They had more to do with his re-election than anything else.
