Why I support Barack Obama as Time’s Person of the Year

time1a

Barack Obama was named Time Magazine’s Person of the Year for 2012. An honor bestowed upon almost every president since 1927. Our 44th President is a remarkable president. No president in our nation’s history has accomplished so little in such a short time. No president has ever been elected to the highest office in the land with less experience. No president has ever been reelected with a record as remarkable as this president’s record.

Here are the top 10 reasons why I support Barack Obama as Time’s Person of the Year.

1. For the first time in our nation’s history we had our credit rating downgraded from AAA to AA+. (In terms of baseball that would be the equivalent of being sent back down to the Minor leagues.)

2. The Benghazi Cover Up. Four Americans died in Libya on Sept 11, 2012 while the President watched and did nothing. After the attack the President lied and said it was not a terrorist attack. To make matters worse initially the attack was blamed on a video. (Three months later the American People are still waiting for the truth and an apology.)

3. The President has presided over the worst economy since The Great Depression. His policies, not the ones of his predecessor are the main reason the economy will not recover. The main culprit is his signature achievement. The Affordable Care Act has kept small businesses from hiring, thus exacerbating the problems in regard to the economy. (If we repeal and replace AFA the economy will turn around a lot sooner.)

4. There are 47 million Americans on food stamps right now. (The President has certainly earned his nickname as the Food Stamp President.)

5. It has taken 219 years and 43 former presidents to spend less money than Barack Obama has spent in only his first four years. (As a result of this accomplishment according to U.S. Debt Clock.org that is approximately $52,000 per person.) http://www.usdebtclock.org/

6. With 23 million Americans out of work and the unemployment rate over 8% Barack Obama has not met with his jobs council in over six months. If that wasn’t enough he also removed the work requirement for Welfare. (Mr. President, the greatest social program is a job.)

7. With the threat of a nuclear Iran, the Assad regime in Syria, the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, a Middle East on the verge of eruption, an unstable North Korea, a belligerent Russia, and a power hungry China, the President wants to cut our national defense as well as reduce our nuclear arsenal to pre Cold War levels. (Just for extra fun he also has skipped the majority of his intelligence briefings.)

8. Gas prices when George W. Bush left office were $1.78 a gallon. Gas Prices have routinely been over $3.50 per gallon and continue to grow even higher. (Good call Mr. President on turning down that Keystone Pipeline.)

9. Telling business owners that they are not responsible for building their own businesses. Eluding to the fact that somehow the government had a hand in building their businesses, not the blood, sweat, tears, sacrifice, risk, and money of the entrepreneurs themselves. (Mr. President, why do small businesses fear you again?)

10. Solyndra, Fisker Automotive, General Motors, Fast and Furious, Cash for Clunkers, Spectra Watt, Sun Power, First Solar, Bright Source, the list goes on and on and on.

The folks at Time Magazine sure know how to pick them. They made an excellent choice for their Person of the Year. Barack Obama has accomplished so much in so little time. With his stellar record of achievements what else could he possibly do to better his already stellar record? I know at least half the country right now is waiting on pins and needles to find out. Maybe he will be so successful that he becomes President for life? I’m sure the President’s next four years will be just as successful as his first four years.

Time Person of the Year – and the winner is….

Barack Obama, of course. That could be considered a minor improvement over romanticizing the stinking, rude, and destructive masses otherwise known as the Occupy Protesters last year. And in minor defense of the Time folks, at least this administration’s “Slut-in-Chief”, Sandra Fluke, didn’t make the short list.

Of course there were arguably better choices on the table at the end – most notably, Malala Yousafzai, the young Pakistani girl that was shot in the head by the Taliban for the terrible crime of suggesting that Muslim women should enjoy the benefits of education. At least 87% of those that bothered to chime in on the voting thought she deserved the recognition. I’d say that’s an indication that there is some degree of hope for humanity in the U.S., but I just have to watch a tag search on Twitter for #p2 for five minutes to realize the truth – this country is populated with liberal sheeple that simply can’t imagine living a life where they are actually responsible for anything.

Why this particular “honor” has remained even remotely close to relevant for all these years speaks volumes about the nature of our populace as well. Now that Barack Obama has gotten the nod twice for this, I think it’s fair to say that he is free game for being compared with previous recipients. So, if the Obama zombies want to celebrate this tiny accomplishment with some sort of twisted orgy, I say have at it! It’s not my problem if you think its a “good” thing to be directly compared with say Adolf Hitler – the Person of the Year in 1938.

Sandra Fluke: Too much for even the earth to bear

We are just days away from finding out who the 2012 TIME Person of the Year will be. You may be surprised to know that one of the 2012 “candidates” —  if chosen as Person of the Year — is literally “too much for even the earth to bear.”

The Person of The Year is considered the person who “most influenced the news this year for better or worse.”

Sandra Fluke, the now-infamous disgruntled Georgetown student who is outraged that the Catholic University “does not provide enough access to birth control pills for female students”, is a candidate for the title this year. Ms. Fluke is described by TIME Magazine as “the target of conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh’s vicious rants.” The magazine goes on to say, “Conservatives painted Fluke as the epitome of liberal entitlement; to liberals, she was a victim of the right’s war on women.”

Victim? A more accurate description is that she is “the political prop” for “The War On Women’s Brains”.

You may be surprised that the real description of Sandra Fluke was written sometime between the 10th and 6th centuries B.C., when Agur, son of Jakeh wrote Proverbs 30.

“Three things are too much for even the earth to bear,
yes, four things shake its foundations—
when the janitor becomes the boss,
when a fool gets rich,
when a whore is voted “woman of the year,”
when a “girlfriend” replaces a faithful wife.”

Proverbs 30:20-23 (The Message)

 

 

When discussing her nomination as TIME Person of The Year, Ms. Fluke stated:

“I would do this again, because these issues are that important to me.”

This is not surprising:

 “A fool finds no pleasure in understanding but delights in airing his own opinions.”  Proverbs 18:2

On December 14, we will know who this years most influential person is. Sandra Fluke most definitely influenced the news this year- for worse! Will the American people vote for her just as they did Barack Obama? If  Sandra Fluke is indeed voted the 2012 Person of The Year, she is sure to receive another phone call from Jamie Foxx’s “lord and savior” Barack Obama, congratulating her!

Kristen Walker Hatten said it quite eloquently:

“Sandra Fluke totally deserves to be TIME Magazine‘s Person of the Year!”

Sandra Fluke truly represents what America has become: a nation of blind, conceited, wicked fools who are making no attempt to turn from evil.  Sadly, “Sandra Fluke embodies the times’!

“Sin whispers to the wicked, deep within their hearts.
They have no fear of God at all.
In their blind conceit,
they cannot see how wicked they really are.
Everything they say is crooked and deceitful.
They refuse to act wisely or do good.
They lie awake at night, hatching sinful plots.
Their actions are never good.
They make no attempt to turn from evil.”
Psalm 36:1-4

The Protester – Times 2011 Person Of The Year

Today on the NBC “Today” show, Time magazine announced the “Protester” as their “Person of the Year”.

The magazine said the dissent that started in the middle east, and eventually made it’s way to Europe and the United States, has changed the face of global politics. Time said the award recognized the protesters for “redefining people power” around the world.

Time editor Rick Stengel said “They dissented, they demanded, they did not despair, even when the answers came back in a cloud of tear gas or a hail of bullets”.

Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg was last years winner. Some may find the vast difference between the winner of last year compared to this interesting. Zuckerberg would seem to represent capitalism at its best. The protesters, particularly in the United States, have generally seemed to represent a strong anti-capitalist message.

Runner-ups included Admiral William McRaven, commander of the US raid that killed Osama Bin Laden, Chinese dissident artist Ai Weiwei, and US Republican congressman Paul Ryan.
