2012 Person of the Year: Barack Obama, the President Considering Time’s readership and management, this is no surprise. We still can’t see Obama’s birth certificate or college records, but he’s the person of the year. Frankly, we know more about Kim Jung Un than Obama. Perhaps Time should have left the rigged vote stand.

Time awards have about as much credibility as a Nobel Peace Prize. I can’t believe Hitler didnt win both awards a couple of times.
Bwahahaha, Time is a joke.

With this great honor from TIME, maybe now Dear Leader will win the Nobel Peace Prize for the second time. Then peace will reign throughout the land and all loyal subjects will dutifully get in line and follow the program (except those of us still clinging to our guns and religion, of course).

I thought Kim was Person of the Year? WTF? Do they have more than one now?

And they wonder why they are going bankrupt. Now if they had pushed up charities or anyone who made an actual difference in the world…. However that would probably have been a conservative.

This is Time’s attempt to go to the head of the bailout line.

They’ve been morally bankrupt for quite some time.

Quite some time. That wasn’t even on purpose.

I would have placed significant wagers – odds be damned – that this was who they would bestow this great and meaningless honor to. The only surprise is that they haven’t given it to him since 2008 or that he won’t get it next year and the year after…

I’d like two copies of the magazine. One to s&^t on, one to cover it up with.

2012 – The Best Year in US History – ever – since time started ticking. Right? KMA Time Magazine – your rag is just as good as the NYT to line a bird cage. ;-)

I’m thinking fire starter would be a better use for those rags. Even as bird cage liners you’d still be able to see the print. A fire destroys all evidence.

Hell, Time should have began their story with these lyrics:

Where do I begin
To tell the story of how great a love can be
The sweet love story that is older than the sea
The simple truth about the love Barack brings to me

What sound does a magazine blow job make?

I want the Chapstik franchise at Time headquarters.

I was listening to Rush this am about a story that Jake Tapper asked Obamao about all the things he was going to do, and where’s he been the last 4 yrs. Obamao’s answer was something along the line of “big deficits, auto industry, 2 wars, blah, blah, blah, I haven’t been on vacation, Jake.” The arrogance of this p***k. I don’t believe he knows what a true statement even means. He and the wife have been either campaigning or on vacation since they got to D.C.

This latest “award” is as meaningless as the Nobel Peace Prize he won.

“Person of the Year”? Is that ALL? Surely He deserves “Person of the Decade”! Or Century. Maybe even of ALL TIME!

And how bigoted and species-ist to think He might be just the “Person” of the Century? Why not “Living Creature Of All Time EVER!!1!”?

And they can send him the letter on patchouli-scented lavender note paper.
/And dot all the “i”s with little hearts.

It must have been awarded because he ran up a trillion dollar deficit for each year of his presidency. Lord help us all for the next four years.

After Benghazi and the Fast and Furious Scandal, the only pictures we should be seeing of “Dear Leader” should be in the Post Office.

Wow.. Really lame. I can’t think of anything significant he did other then campaign in 2012.. That brave Muslim chick should’ve won. The fate of Islam’s womenfolk is one of the most important battles on the planet now.
