Time's Person of the Year 2012

For the second time, Time Magazine features President Barack Obama as 2012's "Person of the Year."

It's been an absolute pleasure to have him "on the bridge." Among other accomplishments, he worked as a civil rights attorney in Chicago and taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School from 1992 to 2004.

He exhibits intellect. Can string two sentences together that make sense. He has a down to earth sense of humor, infectious smile. He has endured unprecedented rudeness, epithets, and Mitch McConnell's gang determined to make him a "one term president."

As compared to the intellectually challenged dolt he replaced., who couldn't man-up to his Air National Guard assignment.
And the "gift that keeps on giving" - Sarah Palin - in her over zealous denunciation of the president being featured again on Time's cover, once again provided us with a healthy belly-laugh.

On Fox News last night, Sarah Palin admitted some skepticism about the relevancy of TIME magazine, which named President Obama as "Person of the Year," because, she said, she was also on that list. "I think there's some irrelevancy there, to tell you the truth," 

Palin told Greta Van Susteren. "I mean consider their list of the most influential people in the country and the world, some who have made that list - yours truly! That ought to tell you something right there regarding the credence that we should give TIME magazine and their list of people."

Ding-a-ling!

A friend of mine was telling me about a letter to the editor that appeared in the Bellingham (Washington) Herald, praising the president for the plummeting gas prices!

In Port Townsend at Safeway yesterday, $3.29 for regular unleaded, and 25 miles to the west, at Sequim's Safeway, $3.19! I was really upset, because I blew my allowance earlier in the day at $3.29!

I would like to thank President Obama for his continuing efforts to lower the price of gas. Over the past few months, I have noticed the priced of gas getting cheaper and cheaper. This has led to more money in my pocket and in the pocket of others. 

I realize that most economists and well-informed citizens agree that the president does not have a lot to do with the price of gas. However, any time the price goes up, he unjustifiably gets blamed. This was illustrated again in the most recent election.

Therefore, since the price has gone down, I think he should get the deserved credit. It only makes sense to me.

I am so thankful that Barack Obama is our president. I was really freaked out until election day. Thank goodness he was re-elected!
