Time names Obama ‘Person of the Year’; Libs squee, racist cover cries begin

Whew! Sandra Fluke avoided having to accept such a sexist award; she was nominated for “Person of the Year” as well. Alas, she lost out to the participation ribbon president. Twitter, as always, predicted this “gutsy call.”

definitely RT @mattmackowiak Prediction: Time’s Person of the Year will be President Obama.

And so they did.

Howard Kurtz thinks it totally makes sense!

Barack Obama is Time’s person of the year. Obvious, yes, but makes sense. Wonder if mag would have picked Romney had he won.

— HowardKurtz (@HowardKurtz) December 19, 2012

But, wait … some aren’t so thrilled with the cover. Because, racist.

@time I absolutely hate to photo Time chose to use of President Obama for his #PersonoftheYear Cover.Why?It seems sinister and dark.

— TheresaEBerger (@TheresaEBerger) December 19, 2012

The Time POTY cover of Obama has some OJ-Simpson-on-Newsweek levels of skin darkening. Is it a photo illustration? nbcnews.tumblr.com/post/383008306…

Time Magazine Person of the Year is President Barack Obama…but the cover looks…is he really that black? twitter.com/TheReallyRick/…

— ReallyRick (@TheReallyRick) December 19, 2012

Sigh.

The sane have a different take.

good to see @time doesnt want to be outpaced by @newsweek in the irrelevance department

It could have been worse? So, there’s that? Look who was considered:

TIME editor Richard Stengel says Egypt’s President was considered for Person of the Year because he’s “trying to reconcile moderates.” Huh?!

— Seth (@dcseth) December 19, 2012

No, really.

Barack Obama is Time Magazines Person of the year? A might be a little bias, but there are so many people doing better things than Obama.

what exactly did he do all year, besides campaign and kill brown people with drones, @time ?

— Hugh Briss (@FoolishReporter) December 19, 2012

Hi @time, I’m pretty sure Ambassador Stevens, Tyrone Woods, Glen Doherty & Sean Smith would oppose @barackobama being POTY ’12. Just saying.

either America’s in absolute shambles or TIME magazine is owned by the government if Barack Obama’s the 2012 person of the year #BS #POY2012

— Nick Radick (@NickRadick) December 19, 2012

Obama wins Time Person of the Yr as ‘architect of new America.’ So 8% unemployment and $16 trillion debt is now worthy of an award. #POTY

— Danny Polowy (@DannyPolowy) December 19, 2012

Hmm. Time gives the award to “the person or persons who most affected the news and our lives, for good or ill.” Maybe it was deserved, if going with the “for ill” criterion. Still, most consider this a predictable, big snooze.

Just when I thought Time could never top “You” as their least-inspired choice for “Person of the Year”…they managed.

— Amanda Carpenter (@amandacarpenter) December 19, 2012

And the irrelevant news of the day: boxed wine apparently spoils faster than bottled and Obama is Time Man/Person of the Year.
