Time names Barack Obama as its ‘Person of the Year’ for 2012


Time magazine announced Barack Obama as its ‘2012 Person of the Year.’  Here is some of what it said about him:

The Obama effect was not ephemeral anymore, no longer reducible to what had once been mocked as “that hopey-changey stuff.” It could be measured — in wars stopped and started; industries saved, restructured or reregulated; tax cuts extended; debt levels inflated; terrorists killed; the health-insurance system reimagined; and gay service members who could walk in uniform with their partners…

When minorities vote, that means young people do too, because the next America is far more diverse than the last. And when all that happens, Obama wins. He got 71% of Latinos, 93% of blacks, 73% of Asians and 60% of those under 30.

That last number is the one Obama revels in most. When he talks about the campaign, he likes to think about the generational shift the country is going through on topics like gay marriage…The President feels a responsibility to advance the values he sees reflected in the changing electorate.   http://poy.time.com/2012/12/19/person-of-the-year-barack-obama/#ixzz2FbDtVnMd

I agree with Time that the re-election of Barack Obama to the presidency of the United States represents a shift in both the demographics and morality of the electorate.  I agree that he is promoting homosexuality, involved in wars, increasing regulations, inflating debt levels, and changing the health-insurance system in the USA.  In terms of taxes, he has been fairly consistent that he wants to raise them and I believe that tax rates will raise in Barack Obama’s second term.  At minimum, unless it is repealed, part of his “Affordable Care Act” (aka Obamacare) raises taxes.

This is the second time that Time named Barack Obama this (the first time was for 2008).  One post I saw about this said the following:

TIME naming President Obama the man of the year means nothing. TIME also named Hitler and and Joseph Stalin person of the year, Stalin won it twice!

Actually, what Time’s naming means is that the person has a lot of influence and/or has made a lot of changes.  And this is certainly true for Barack Obama.  Notice also the following:

Time’s “Person of the Year” is the person or thing that has most influenced the culture and the news during the past year for good or for ill. In 2010, Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg received the honor.

Other previous winners have included Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, Bono and President George W. Bush. http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/Time-Person-of-the-Year/2012/12/19/id/468335

While Barack Obama is not the cause of all the ills or debt in the USA (sin is), he has not taken certain steps that I feel are necessary to change the direction to a truly positive one for that country.

Debt is often caused by greed, and debt is very dangerous (Habakkuk 2:6-8).  Societal acceptance of homosexuality is dangerous (Romans 1:18-32; Jude 7; 2 Peter 2:16).

The USA will learn the full dangers of its shift in moral direction in not too many years.
