…exactly whom you’d expect.

In their defense, the guy has mastered the art of mind-reading. No small feat.

PUKE

Hitler was Person of the Year in 1936.

Time Magazine hasn’t changed at all. They have always venerated those who would enslave us.

shocked i tell ya

Bensonofben on December 19, 2012 at 8:51 AM

Well to be fair, unless you disagree with his insane utopian agenda or you’ve already made yourself a target by questioning his authority in any way, the guy appears to be the kindest, most benevolent master you could ever hope for.
A man for the sheeple.

…TIME MAGAZINE…you knew who it would be last year at this time this year!…SEMEN MAGAZINE!…is more like it!

KOOLAID2 on December 19, 2012 at 8:54 AM

I’m gobsmacked or something.

princetrumpet on December 19, 2012 at 8:55 AM

It the laziest pick EVAH

Bensonofben on December 19, 2012 at 8:59 AM

Time does select the winner of the Presidential race on a semi-regular basis, so no surprise there. What I cannot abide is the retroactive rewriting of history to make it seem like his reelection was some sort of triumph or validation of his first term. Just own up to it. He promised people a whole bunch of free sh-t we can’t afford while demagoguing his opponent in an unprecedented manner(even accusing him of negligent homicide in that cancer ad). It’s an indictment of this nation, not a celebration of Obama.

Doughboy on December 19, 2012 at 9:01 AM

Surely Obama should be POY in 2014 for single handedly steering us into a sever financial crisis.

Bensonofben on December 19, 2012 at 9:04 AM

Obama is a failure at falling down in traffic, of which I wish he would try and succeed.

tom daschle concerned on December 19, 2012 at 9:11 AM

Boring.

Barf.

bluegill on December 19, 2012 at 9:18 AM

Even proposing another candidate would be heresy. Presumably the entire newsroom said “Aye.” in a simultaneous flat monotone when his name was announced as the sole candidate.

JeremiahJohnson on December 19, 2012 at 9:18 AM

Congrats Allah-I mean the other Allah not you .

aebloo on December 19, 2012 at 9:20 AM

How can President Obama even move with so many tongues firmly lodged in his rectum?

Mitoch55 on December 19, 2012 at 9:24 AM

Words fail me

Own him obama voters…. no whining when the $h!t hits the fan

cmsinaz on December 19, 2012 at 9:38 AM

Wow, didn’t see that one coming.

Bitter Clinger on December 19, 2012 at 9:38 AM

Obama fits right in with previous persons of the year like Ayatullah Khomeini, Vladamir Putin, and other enemies of America.

DRayRaven on December 19, 2012 at 9:39 AM

This is why I like to use the joke of “more issues than Time magazine”…and I’m not referring to how many fishwraps they’ve printed.

MelonCollie on December 19, 2012 at 9:44 AM

Meh, who cares. Although POTY is an apt acronym since Time Magazine and their “Person of the Year” is as important to me as the turd I dropped in the “POTY” this morning.

Meaningless tripe from a meaningless magazine.

Liberty or Death on December 19, 2012 at 9:59 AM

Just think about Speaker Pelosi winning it in 2014. Enjoy that thought with your cornflakes.

SAMinVA on December 19, 2012 at 10:03 AM

Of course fairly retarded ODS sufferers do not understand what Time’s Person of the Year means and what the criteria is but seeing the squirm is as pleasant as always.

SAMinVA on December 19, 2012 at 10:03 AM

I would not be surprised if TIME is not around in 2014. They seem to be on the same “path to success” as Newsweek was a couple of years ago.

UltimateBob on December 19, 2012 at 10:22 AM

You tell’em Lester. By the way, how did you feel about that 2004 selection?

DaveDief on December 19, 2012 at 10:25 AM

Stalin was Time’s Person of the Year, twice.

UltimateBob on December 19, 2012 at 10:22 AM

Which is why stroking King Barry’s massive ego by awarding him POTY makes sense. They can bring it up when they’re begging for a bailout.

Kataklysmic on December 19, 2012 at 10:34 AM

LOL. Good grief. None so blind as they who will not see.

lester on December 19, 2012 at 10:03 AM

Not squirming at all. What you see is laughing at you and yours humiliating yourselves, and the icing on the cake is that you’re all still so stupid you don’t even have a hint of self-awareness at what laughable, sub-moronic, starry-eyed lapdogs you are. ROFL, you are hilarious, thanks.

DaveDief on December 19, 2012 at 10:25 AM

They were racist then. They’re more “enlightened” now.

Isn’t that right, Moe(lester)?

UltimateBob on December 19, 2012 at 10:41 AM

Billionaire conservatives have got to buy Time magazine back.

DeathtotheSwiss on December 19, 2012 at 12:14 PM

It’s “Time” to vomit.

Well, after all, he is our Lord & Savior, per Jamie Foxx. So I guess that makes him qualified.

Well, I suspected it would be Sandra Fluke or the “Undocumented immigrant”. Turns out it’s someone even more useless.

Saltyron on December 19, 2012 at 12:25 PM

Just as prestigious that Nobel Prize he won for no apparent reason.

Err… Just as prestigious as that Nobel Prize he won for no apparent reason.

Hill60 on December 19, 2012 at 1:13 PM

Why is the Time cover pic so dark? It’s like that pic of OJ years ago…

RAAAAAAAACISTS!!!

Marcola on December 19, 2012 at 1:17 PM

Simple. They picked the person-of-the-week for the last 52 weeks.
