Obama is Time Magazine's 'Person of the Year'

More worship of The One from his cheerleaders in the press:

President Barack Obama was named Time magazine's "Person of the Year," the publication revealed Wednesday morning.

It is the president's second time winning the award; he won in 2008 after being elected to the White House for the first time. 

Obama edged out Malala Yousafazi, an Afghan teenager who narrowly avoided death after being shot for defending women's rights, Apple CEO Tim Cook, Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi and Fabiola Gianotti, an Italian particle physicist who worked on the discovery of the Higgs Boson.

"We are in the midst of historic cultural and demographic changes, and Obama is both the symbol and in some ways the architect of this new America," Time managing editor Rick Stengel wrote in his letter explaining the choice.

Am I exaggerating? How can a president be the "architect" of demographic change, much less cultural change? Did Obama impregnate several million Latino women? Perhaps he worked it so there would be as many single women as married women, although how he might have accomplished that feat I leave to your imagination.

In his essay, Stengel said Obama had won the award this year "for finding and forging a new majority, for turning weakness into opportunity and for seeking, amid great adversity, to create a more perfect union."

The most divisive president in history is seeking to create a "more perfect union?" Nope. No hagiography there.

Personally, I think the Muslim Brotherhood should have won. They are set to dominate the Middle East for years to come and are likely to start a war or two before they're through.

But that would have undermined Obama's "smart" strategy in dealing with these "moderate" Islamists.

So congratulations to the president for this signature award. No doubt in the eyes of your worshippers, you deserve it. For the rest of us, a cold dread descends over America as we face the next four years with the knowledge that despite being in office for nearly a whole term, he still doesn't know what he's doing.
