TIME Names Obama Person of the Year

 

Not only is it bad that Obama won TIME Magazine’s person of the year, what’s worse are the others that were nominated. Mohamad Morsi of Egypt? New North Korean leader?

The Lookout reported:

Time magazine has named President Barack Obama as its 2012 Person of the Year.

“We are in the midst of historic cultural and demographic changes,” Time managing editor Richard Stengel said in announcing its choice. “And Obama is both the symbol and in some ways the architect of this new America.”

Runners-up were Malala Yousafzai, the 15-year-old Pakistani women’s rights activist who survived after being shot in the head and neck by Taliban; Apple CEO Tim Cook; Egypt’s Islamist President Mohamed Morsi; and scientist Fabiola Gianotti. In 2011, Time picked “The Protester.”
