Did Time Magazine Get it Right?

Did Time Magazine Get it Right?

When I logged onto my computer this morning I saw Time Magazine’s article naming President Obama “Person of the Year” Immediately, I was prepared to read the negativity.  I saw one post that asked, “Did Time Get it Right?”  Let me give you my opinion on it:

ABSOLUTELY!  When one looks at the all this President has endured from the moment he decided to run for President, i.e. GOP backlash, the insane birther issue, whether or not he was Muslim when he clearly is a Christian, Mitt Romney, all of the racist attacks, the downright lies and defamation to his character and on and on. Despite all of that, he got re-elected with a 57% approval rating.

Times quote on their decision really said it all for me:

We are in the midst of historic cultural and demographic changes, and Barack Obama is both the symbol and in some ways the architect of this new America. In 2012, he found and forged a new majority, turned weakness into opportunity and sought, amid great adversity, to create a more perfect union.

When I look at the way he has handled himself, despite the disrespect he receives, this honor is definitely well earned.  Congratulations Mr. President.

The 125 picture “Portrait of a Presidency” says a lot about who this man really is.  You should check it out. Very nice.

    There is no doubt about the fact that the president Obama is extremely loyal with his country. He is trying to make it a better platform for all of its natives. Time sure get it right in my opinion. Moreover the paper writer services also appreciates the president.
