Barack Obama: Time Magazine 'Person of the Year'

Written by Administrator
Barack Obama: Time Magazine  'Person of the Year' NADAV KANDER FOR TIME

 

TIME has chosen President Barack Obama as its Person of the Year for 2012.

 

 

Richard Stengel, Managing editor Richard Stengel  of TIME wrote that, "Obama is the first Democratic President since FDR to win more than 50% of the vote in consecutive elections and the first President since 1940 to win re-election with an unemployment rate north of 7.5%. He has stitched together a winning coalition and perhaps a governing one as well. His presidency spells the end of the Reagan realignment that had defined American politics for 30 years. 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."

According to Politico, "Obama beat out Apple CEO Tim Cook and Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani blogger grievously injured by a Taliban militant."

This is the second time for the president,  in  2008 President Obama was also selected Time 'Person of the Year'.
