Time magazine has named President Obama its “Person of the Year,” for the second time in four years. (Winners in between: Ben Bernanke, Mark Zuckerberg, and protesters).

“For finding and forging a new majority, for turning weakness into opportunity and for seeking, amid great adversity, to create a more perfect union, Barack Obama is TIME’s 2012 Person of the Year,” the editors write.

The short list included Malala Yousafzai, the 14-year-old Pakistani education rights activist shot by the Taliban in October, Apple CEO Tim Cook, Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi, and physicist Fabiola Gianotti.

In the magazine cover story, Michael Scherer reports that after the 2012 presidential election, Obama started working on a “40,000-foot” list of issues he’d like to tackle in his second term. Among them: climate change, early childhood education, college costs, electoral reform and prison reform.

The selection of Obama by the magazine was announced today on NBC's "Today" show.

Despite all odds, our President prevailed in gaining re-election. He still has an uphill battle fighting a Red House which has blocked his every move in an attempt to squash his goals of bringing the Middle Class equal pay, women’s rights, gay rights and affordable healthcare. The Bush Administration drove our economy into a swift nose dive and Obama is still the patsy. Watch conservative hands paint him in Blackface with a visual commentary of how Barack has been bamboozled at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/20...

TO KLAUS & OTHER OBAMA SUPPORTERS:

I'm sure the New Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt is in full support of the Time Man of the Year while they are crucifying Christians, and he is sending new F-16 Fighter Jets to them without the knowledge of our Congress.

1P,

The information in the articles did not come from FOX News, but I wish they, and all news outlets would pick up on these stories about Christians being slaughtered by the new muslim brotherhood and obamas support of them by shipping to them weapons without anyone’s knowledge.

Why is it so hard for you and your good buddy Klaus, to see the real agenda of obama????
