Time... Man of the Year...

Isn't the man of year award an honor???
I don't think you can legitimately use the name
Bush in same sentence w/the word "honor"..

There are a lot of accusations about the news media being in someone's pocket or having their own agenda while spinning the news w/their support.
So what is the problem w/Time and managing Editor Jim Kelly?
Who pulls the strings?? Who's pocket are they in?? Is that the case??
How can 60,645,844 people be so dumb?
Can this country be any more divided over one man?

The Bush administration may go down in history as the most misguided, self serving, unethical and most manipulative under a false pretense.
..Give credit where credit is due..
>took one of the most powerful and admired nations in the world and made it the most resented country in the world ..
>1st US president in history to have a majority of the people of Europe (71%)view his presidency as the biggest threat to world peace and stability..
>promised and failed to fulfill his pledge to get Osama Bin Laden 'dead or alive'..
>Set the all-time record for biggest annual budget spending and set the record for biggest annual deficit in history..
>first two years in office over 2 million Americans lost their jobs..
>Cut unemployment benefits for more out of work Americans and cut healthcare benefits for war veterans yet managed to spend more money on polls and focus groups than any president ..
>Set all-time record for number of administration appointees who violated US law by not selling huge investments in corporations bidding for government contracts..

This only scratches the surface..There is so much more it's scary..
Does this administration represent your interests and concerns??
Not mine!!
Doesn't it concern you the impression we make on a Global level??
It should!!

We changed after the 9/11 attacks. Around the world attitudes changed the way people viewed others different then themselves. We began profiling trying to get a handle on the thinking that drives the radical Muslim factions.
Bush promised to get Osama but did not. Around the world many of the radicals were captured or their efforts thwarted. We were manipulated down another path in an effort to take our focus off Osama. The attack of a sovereign nation under guise of a pre emptive strike with the emphasis on "WMD's".
This changed the way the world views America; possibly forever.

I guess Man of the Year doesn't have to necessarily a good thing.
Time doesn't have to be credited for a picking a good person.
After all it's not like the Nobel Peace award.
Time may as well have picked Osama or Saddam.
That persona that is most influential in the news but doesn't have to be a "good" person.
