Did Time Magazine Get it Right by Choosing President Obama 2012 Person of the Year?

This is the second time Barack Obama has been named Time Person of the Year.

Time Magazine announced Wednesday that President Barack Obama was named 2012 Time Person of the Year. Obama beat out runner up Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani teenager shot in the head by the Taliban for sticking to her principles for women’s rights. Obama also was Time Person of the Year in 2008. The last person to win the title twice was former President George W. Bush.

According to The Huffington Post, Richard Stengel, managing editor of Time, said it was remarkable that Obama won two terms with more than 50 percent of the popular vote as a Democrat. He reportedly said Obama earned the honor "For finding and forging a new majority, for turning weakness into opportunity and for seeking, amid great adversity, to create a more perfect union.”

Do you think Time Magazine got it right in naming President Barack Obama 2012 Time Person of the Year?

George- For once you said something poignant. It is the gerrymandering from both sides. But Obama is at the helm, this is his responsibility. As far as the media goes, the MSM, your boys, are the worst violators. The rest of us are just tired of your brand of horse hockey. Obama is the divider, he had set the boundaries, he is not, by any means, the "Man of the year".

Racerx said: Show me a man who can unite our country, then you will have someone worthy of "Man of the year". Amen to that Racer X! But you and Brett both had a point in which you can't blame on congress. Obama is the first president that simply cannot compromise and/or agree with anything that doesn't fit into his dictatorial agenda. A good president knows how to unite both sides. Reagan was the best thus far at that. democrats both loved and hated him, but they completely respected him because he knew how to bargain and give in.

Point well made Tammy. Obama is also the first President who is an actual product OFthe government. Every good thing in his life (save his grandmother on his mother's side) has been provided by the government including every job he ever had. I think if he made all his college records available we would find he went to Occidental as an exchange student on our nickel too. It's too bad Time magazine doesn't have a "Schmuck of the year" award, it would be much more fitting for him.
