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.

    We’re poorer, less free, experiencing increased racial and class animosity while heading inexorably toward national bankruptcy and currency collapse – and we’re doing it in a far more dangerous world.

    Where’s the champagne? Let’s hear it for the architect of doom!

    And we’ll still have subsidized birth control pills for all and Big Bird – unless Big Bird turns out to be a child molesting pervert like its friend Elmo.

    HMMMM – I see the presenting TheWon with a halo like some Black Jesus is a thing of the past. What a dark and forbidding portrait they’ve used.

    And it’s comments like the above that are the reason why the “conservative brand” ($$$) is irrelevant to all except those who purchase the “conservative” books, t-shirts, and other products from the professional conservatives

    Benghazi murders covered up and lied about, no accountabilty, fast n furious illegal weapons sales 400 dead and covered up and lied about, record debt, record deficits, record unemployment, green energy comp. scams, billions in bribes and payouts, nobody held accountable. Record food stamps, record welfare, record poverty, record illegal bribes and bailouts, record failures in foreign policy, no budget passed in 4 years, fiscal cliff failed leadership, failed obamacare and massive layoffs and closures due to it. Obamacare cost triple his cost promises, insurance rates double not half as promised. Record lunatic EPA policies and energy costs except gas…because of private sector drilling. This idiot should be man of the century for his efforts and success for killing the greatest country on earth.

  • cavt

    Who wants his type of new Amerika–for those that do, give it to them. As for Time, how many people still read this propagandist rag?

  • RealMc

    as much of an honor as winning the nobel peace prize.


  • Adirondack Patriot

    Time magazine is about as credible as the Village Voice or those free liberal city weeklies that are plastered with ads for escort services, strip clubs and head shops.

    Why is a demolisher called an architect?

  • Pink Tie Republican

    Yes, as architect, he has constructed a towering house of financial cards which will collapse on our heads in the next few years. With help from his Repub “friends” of course.

  • I haven’t read Time in over 20 years…

  • Big Al

    Well of course he was. All part of the plan.

  • BetseyRoss

    Time? What’s that? I stopped taking them back in the 60’s when they trashed Lt. William Calley without a trial. No publication should have any influence on our political process. They are supposed to be intruments of fact not propoganda. A pox on all of their houses.

    It obscures the fact that a modern black Democrat president is more a token than a sign of progress.

    The MOOO is certainly building a new America – one that will see the Chinese yuan become the nation’s currancy, where Sharia law will dominate in Urban areas and the Ruling Class finally comes out of the closet.

    Too bad this new America will only consist of the North Eastern States, the Royal City, Mobillnois, and the Left Coast. The rest will secede to form a better, stronger country.

  • rolling thunder

    Yes, he has certainly been instrumental in building a New America. Underlaying his edifice is a financial deck of cards that is so shaky that when it collapses it will take generations to rebuild–if ever.

  • frances quinn

    shame on time!

  • Joanne

    He is the architect of the New America – the USSA.

    “This idiot should be man of the century for his efforts and success for killing the greatest country on earth.” by BigKahuna

    The only reason Obama is able to accomplish his goals are because good men do nothing. The blame doesn’t hang on the head of Obama for this one. We all know who the real Obama is, and yet, no outrage, no outroar from the American people. Do we actually believe people of the WWII era would stand for what is happening in America. This is all on the heads of the American people. The American people are a morally and spiritually bankrupt Godless lot who will be brought to their knees along with all the other Israelite nations who have turned from God and have no shame.

    Ted Nugent flips out over calls for
    more gun control, misinformation

    A False Ad About Assault Weapons

    [Machine Guns Still Illegal

    Contrary to what the ad clearly implies, any weapon that can fire 300
    rounds per minute remains illegal for civilians to own without specific
    clearance by the US Department of Justice.

    In fact, machine guns have been tightly regulated since the passage of the National Firearms Act in 1934, in the wake of the gangster era. Legal ownership of a machine gun requires an extensive federal background check, fingerprinting, signed clearance from the chief of local law enforcement (such as a county sheriff), a $200 excise tax, and weeks of paperwork. That was true before the assault-weapon ban was enacted in 1994, and it remains true with the expiration of the ban at midnight Sept. 13, 2004.

    That’s made clear in a question-and-answer document posted Sept.
    13 on the Web site of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and
    Explosives (ATF), explaining the effect of the expiration of the
    assault-weapon ban:

    ATF: All provisions of the National Firearms Act (NFA) relating
    to registration and transfer of machineguns . . . still apply.

    The fully automatic version of the AK47 — pictured and described in
    the ad — remains just as illegal as it was before the ban expired.]

    #33 – EXACTLY

    give credit to the old Confederacy, 7-States seceded after Lincoln’s election (before the inauguration) because they knew who he was. What’s OUR problem?!

    if we don’t start soon to build our Free States of America then we it will soon be too late

  • As far as I’m concerned, Malala Yousafzai, the 15-year-old Pakistani women’s rights activist was one of the very few on the list deserving of this honor. Disgusting, once again, Obama is being honored for accomplishing absolutely nothing worthwhile. Oh well, at least that nit wit Sandra Fluke didn’t get the cover. That would have been really disgraceful.

    Obama is person of the year? No big deal.
    I was Time’s person of the year in 2006. But then again so were you, and you, and you, and …
    Oh Hell, can anybody say LAME.
    Time magazine today is about as relevant as the old Police Gazette.

  • Jackson

    TIME magazine ceased being relevant 25 years ago. Now, like most on the left, it has nuisance value only.

    Anyone ever get the feeling that if Obie asked Richard Stengel for a BJ, Stengel wouldn’t even wait for a private room to be rented out?

    What’s the difference between “Time” and the official North Korean Communist Party magazine?

    The North Korean mag is more objective, hard-hitting, and willing to “speak truth to power.”

    Of course Obama deserves a second Time Rag ‘Person of the Year’ selection. The first time Obama was selected he was the Petulant Punk POTUS now since re-election he is the Arrogant Petulant Punk POTUS.

    God help us all if he is the Man of the Year….

    I want the ‘old’ America back. You know, the one where we were proud to be Americans, and we were the most prosperous and powerful nation, the envy of the free world? Yeah, that America.
