    :rolleyes:

    Personally, I feel the same way about this as I do his Nobel Peace Prize; dumbfounded. :(

    I would like for this to not turn into an Obama slam-fest, regardless of political views. Is there anyone you would of rather seen "win" this? :confused:

    Totally non-political question.

    What the heck did he do in 2012 to make him the person of the year? Aside from the election, he didn't do anything. :confused:

    Well in all fairness, Bush got it twice, so I'm not calling media bias...

    Adolf Hitler was man of the year 1938 I believe.
    but at least Hitler accomplished things: rescued the economy, freed the Sudentenland w/o War.
    I canot think of any accomplishment for the President beyond staying in power

    I think the girl who stood up to the Taliban would have been a better person, for the simple fact that we would be supporting her. She was fearless, stood up for what she believed in and was gunned down.

    That is courage my friends, and deserving of such recognition!

    I don't doubt that you can not think.

    Hitler was also a dictator, who answered to no government body, destroyed his nation, murdered men, women and children by the millions, was soundly defeated in war, and died the most detested man in the world.

    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 don't think he was comparing Obama to Hitler in that way. He was comparing how they both were person of the year. What did Hitler do to deserve it? What has Obama done? Any veteran would have been a better choice, because they have actually done something for this country. Obama has done nothing to help us.

    Oh, and BTW, Obama bowing to a Saudi King was an insult to the American people. Obama apologizing to terrorists was an insult to the American People. Obama blaming a video, and the people who made it for the Benghazi attacks was an insult to the American people. Obama, forcing American to buy health insurance against their will, or forcing them to pay a hefty tax is an insult to the American people.

    Shall I go on?

    +infinity, cant believe I didn't even consider our brave men and women. Not only the ones who gave their lives, but have had numerous back to back deployments over the years.

    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 :cool:

    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.
