Obama Named TIME Mag’s Person of Year


Barack Obama was named TIME Magazine’s Person of the Year for being the “architect of a new America.”
The Lookout reported:

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.”

Runners-up were Malala Yousafzai, the 15-year-old Pakistani women’s rights activist who survived after being shot in the head and neck by Taliban; Apple CEO Tim Cook; Egypt’s Islamist President Mohamed Morsi; and scientist Fabiola Gianotti. In 2011, Time picked “The Protester.”

By “architect of a new America” they mean a new broke and bankrupt United States with historic unemployment rates.
