Those of you surprised that Time Magazine picked Barack Obama as its Man of the Year only need count the number of times he appeared on their cover in 2008 alone. Twenty-five (25) out of fifty-two (52) times. Nearly half. Barack Obama would have been their Man of the Year even if he had lost this most recent election. They'd being paying tribute to the Divider-in-Chief while chastising the rest of us for our blatant "racism."
Translation: Bringing Socialism and European malaise to the United States wrapped up in a healthy dose of finger pointing.We are in the midst of historic cultural and demographic changes, and Barack Obama is both the symbol and in some ways the architect of this new America.
Translation: The President of the United States created an army of extended hands, palm up waiting for an entitlement. Such damage was done to the economy via out-of-control spending that individual citizens turned away from personal responsibility and initiative and towards Big Government presents. This translated into a focus on immediate gratification and a vast growth to dependency. Responsible economics was beaten down by a sycophantic press as an enemy of the people. The American people voted their personal wallets in the majority and tossed down a shot of "immediate gratification" as opposed to long term healing of the economy.In 2012, he found and forged a new majority, turned weakness into opportunity and sought, amid great adversity, to create a more perfect union.
