To make, even a veiled, comparison of Hitler to the President of the United States is an insult to the American people and shows that the poster has no real understanding of either history or the present.

I canot think of any accomplishment for the President beyond staying in power
Bush stood up for the country when attacked.
That is "doing something" in my book.

Lemme ask y'all something...
How many presidents have NOT made "person of the year"?

I'm wondering if it's a "gimme" honor.

You got a point trip. Clinton was man of the year in 1993. IDK about Bush Sr.

Ms Soto should have had a .45, if she was anti gun then screw her. She failed to protect her children with her sheep mentality.

If she wasn't, then she died at the hands of a gun free zone.

Last year it was the Occupy Protestor. Obama is good company for that crowd. The only time I read Time is when I am in the doctor's office and forgot my book (which is a very rare occurrence indeed- not forgetting my book mind you, but me visiting the doctor!)

Just because someone has a firearm doesn't automatically mean they can affect the outcome of a situation.

I don't care what her stance on firearms was. She went to work to better children's futures and gave the ultimate sacrifice so that they could still have that chance.

that makes her a hero in my book

Have to agree with Dog on this. Regardless of what her stance on firearms was, she did perform a heroic act and sacrificed herself for the safety of the children in her charge. This is worthy of admiration, setting all politics aside.
