(Reuters) - Time has tapped U.S. President Barack Obama for its Person of the Year for the second time, citing his historic re-election last month as symbolic of the nation's shifting demographics and the rise of younger, more diverse Americans.

The republigraphics aren't looking good. The Republicans could never win control of several key states again, and this trend has now reached the national level. The socialist cancer in the USA has reached stage 4.
Hispanics are the conservatives in the United States of Mexico. Their economy is growing twice as fast as the USA. They have many of the same stores there that we have here, Costco, Walmart, Home Depot, only with much cheaper prices. Government spending and regulation is tiny compared to the USA, and their public dept is half the GDP percentage. 1950s America still exists, but they speak Spanish there.
When Bush lost in 1992, we were told it was because of "the economy, stupid".
In 2012, it was "The Stupid" younger "more diverse" Americants who had the overwhelming say. They might have voted differently if they "had skin in the game". Non-taxpaying Americans are all to happy to take money with no clue on how to pay for it.
A cult of personality arises when an individual uses mass media, propaganda, or other methods, to create an idealized, heroic, and, at times god-like public image, often through unquestioning flattery and praise. Sociologist Max Weber developed a tripartite classification of authority; the cult of personality holds parallels with what Weber defined as “charismatic authority”. A cult of personality is similar to hero worship, except that it is established by mass media and propaganda.

Any predictions on future nominators? I’ll start:
2013 Man of the Year: Moochie
2014 Man of the Year: Chelsea Hubbell.
2015. TIME has ceased publishing.
I think Obama is tapping the editors at Time.
Surprise! Surprise! I never would have thought that would be their pick! After all the negative stories about Obama in Time one would never have guessed they would select him! My bet, he will be made a Saint next! to rank next to Al Gore! I would not be surprised if he won another Nobel Peace prize and an Oscar! The military should grant him a Congressional Medial of Honor! for ending the Iraq war and all that.
J. Jackson Jr. was robbed! Who else could get 99% of the vote, w/o campaigning, while kickin time in the funny farm?
The last time I was THIS surprised was when Ricky Martin said he was gay.
The jailed Russian Band “Pussy Riot” should have gotten the honor (if you can call it an honor).
2 of the three are still in the gulag probably being gangraped daily by the guards and abused by vicious gangs.
Apparently Pat Buchanan is Man of the Year on WND
I think that is a FAR better choice than Barry O
Well anyone is.
Pat Buchanan did something is this past year?
‘The last time I was THIS surprised was when Ricky Martin said he was gay.”
He has been touted by the Leftwing media as a stark symbol of the “death of the White, male GOP” etc...
Buchanan was fired from MSNBC for pointing out the death of the Christian majority here in the USA and the coming rise in minorities- BOTH facts that liberals are cheering about now....after the re election of Obama
I suppose he dares object to homosexual “marriage” and open borders and off shoring US jobs
All of those things used to be mainstream values
