Is it any wonder why subscriptions to far left magazines are plummeting? They simply can’t stop fawning over their chosen one.
Time Magazine has announced their Person of the Year for 2012, and of course it turns out to be President Obama. Obama was also Time’s Person of the Year in 2008.
TIME’s managing editor, Rick Stengel, revealed their “Person of the Year” on Wednesday morning on Today.
“He obviously won re-election,” Stengel said. “He won re-election despite higher unemployment rate than anyone had to face in 70 years. He’s the first Democrat to actually win two consecutive terms with over 50 percent of the vote. That’s something we haven’t seen since Franklin Delano Roosevelt. And he’s basically the beneficiary and the author of a new America. A new demographic, a new cultural America that he’s now the symbol of.”
Obama was also the “Person of the Year” in 2008.
The President, ever humble, essentially states that America wants to be him in the Time article (also make note of all the failings mentioned regarding the President’s term):
Beyond the Oval Office, overwhelming challenges remain: deadlocked fiscal-cliff talks; a Federal Reserve that predicts years of high unemployment; and more unrest in places like Athens, Cairo and Damascus.
He (Obama) leans back, tea at his side, legs crossed, to explain what he thinks just happened. “It was easy to think that maybe 2008 was the anomaly,” he says. “And I think 2012 was an indication that, no, this is not an anomaly. We’ve gone through a very difficult time. The American people have rightly been frustrated at the pace of change, and the economy is still struggling, and this President we elected is imperfect. And yet despite all that, this is who we want to be.” He smiles. “That’s a good thing.”
An imperfect President, but one “we want to be”. Thank you Johnny Narcissism.
Shorter Obama: “I’ve really caused one hell of a mess, but the American people fell for it anyway. They love me. They really, really love me.”
