Barack Obama: TIME’s Man Of The Year

Barack Obama SmokingThis ridiculous puff piece assumes Obama is a man in the classic sense.

Obama is an arrogant, petulant little man who presided over two scandals resulting in the deaths of Americans, as well as the worst financial crisis in over 80 years. But hey, let’s reward him, because everyone gets a trophy.

President Barack Obama has been named TIME’s Person of the Year for 2012, allowing him the honour for the second time in four years.

The magazine cited the president’s historic re-election as symbolic of the nation’s changing demographics amid the backdrop of high unemployment and other challenges.

This year, Obama edged out Malala Yousufzai, a Pakistani girl shot in the head by the Taliban for advocating girls’ education, for the honor. She was named as runner up.

Well, she certainly didn’t deserve the honor. Has Yousufzai slowed the rise of the oceans, healed the planet, ended the wars, and secured our nation? I think not.
