(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.

I guess this means he’s getting another Nobel Peace Prize.
Wow! That caught me by surprise. Who’da thought?
I wonder...is nobama’s reelection “symbolic” of societal dumbing-down, voter fraud or gimmesome politics?
You mean Dear Leader is not???
Time is still published ?
Don’t forget “Gun salesman of the year” ,too.
For now. Give it another year. Maybe. News-weak has gone by the roadside.
What a surprise.
What do we expect from a communists inspired piece of paper that should be in a shredder.
Stupid is as stupid does............
I don’w know what he’s done to deserve this - but Time’s choice justifies why I don’t read the garbage and why they will eventually go the way of Newsweek.
The award should have been given collectively to the voter fraud thugs.
Does that make him the Person of the Century, or the Person of the Millennia?
[Yes, that’s meant to be plural.]
If they had the cohonnas they should tell the truth and rename the magazine SOCIALIST TIMES.
History shows that people make nations.The ultimate way to destroy a country is for changing demographics and their worldview and mode of integration to destroy the values, principles, traditions, and culture that made it great.
They already have.
Would Barry shut up already. I turn on the radio for some entertainment and he’s yapping about gun control.
**** obama and **** time.
Is this his reward for his massive cover-up of events in Benghazi, including the murder of four Americans? Or maybe his brilliant move in Egypt; Calling for the ousting of an American ally and funding a terrorist group to declare itself ‘Dictator’ of a new Islamist State?
That Korean dude would have been a better choice.
That is the ultimate irony of Obama's existence. he's really done nothing throughout his life. Yet, here he is.
Another thing that has always fascinated me about liberals is the joy they take in adorning their homes and offices with trophies they haven't earned. I marvel at how they can take pride in showing off something that they and the viewer know was not earned. Maybe it's the mutual understanding of having pulled off a scam.
KWANZAA CLAUS Times man of the year...
TIME magazine is still published? Who knew?
Saw the cover posted in my local newspaper. Time is gonna get in trouble for going all “O.J. Simpson” on the cover.
I know being backlit was supposed to give him gravitas, but it just makes him look foreboding.
I don't consider the creep to be a legit president...
I want participate in the SCM's joy, but I'll take some pleasure as bammey voters take it in the shorts....
that's not a very nice way to live your life, but its something..
Time has not learned what LTG Russell Honore said during the Katrina clean-up about getting “stuck on stupid!” I’d love our unbiased media to explain how it is that over the past several decades that the favorable covers of these (dying) news magazines so favors Democrat Presidents. Jus an amazing coincidence I guess.
Frankly though, this is looking more and more like a Presidential replay of Peter Sellers’ classic “Being There”. As the IMDb blurbs says, “His simple TV-informed utterances are mistaken for profundity.” Obama strikes me as being a mile wide but an inch deep.
TIME has always dug totalitarians.
An inch wide but a mile thick. Unfortunately.
I thought it wold be the UNDOCUMENTED ILLEGALS.....
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.
A 1950s Chinese propaganda poster showing a happy family of five enjoying life under the image of Mao Zedong. The caption above the picture reads “The happy life Chairman Mao gives us”.
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?
