Time Magazine just released their ‘Person of the Year’ and it was revealed to be none other than…Barack Obama. I feel like naming Obama as ‘Person of the Year’ is just plain lazy. Selecting the President of the United States? A plan and boring figurehead? Is that the best you can do? And not only that, but this is the 2nd time they’ve named him the POTY. (ha- great acronym.)
I can think of SEVERAL other people who made more of an impact (whether positive or negative, Republican or Democrat, conservative or liberal, , American or foreign, famous or not famous, political or apolitical) on society.
- Malala Yousafzai, the teen Pakistani advocate for education for girls who was shot by the Taliban? (awarded 2nd place)
- One of our Gold Medal Olympians?
- An American Soldier?
- Someone who helped in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy?
- A business owner?
- A Patriot?
- An Executive Director of a NonProfit Organization?
Aside from Solyndra, Benghazi, telling Americans “You didn’t build that’, Fast & Furious, Class Warfare, the defense of Big Bird, his endless golfing, the Fiscal Cliff debacle, the credit downgrade, unemployment rates, the increase in the national debt, “We’re doing just fine”, the spending, the handouts, the mediScare, the bailouts, the tax increases, the NDAA, the gun control talk, Obamacare, and the total disregard for the American people…is that REALLY the best you could do, Time Magazine?
Give me a break.
