Thumbs up President Bush declared as Time "Person of the year"

President Bush's bold, uncompromising leadership and his clear-cut election victory made him Time magazine's "Person of the Year" for 2004, its managing editor said on Sunday.

Time chose Bush "for sticking to his guns (literally and figuratively), for reshaping the rules of politics to fit his 10-gallon-hat leadership style and for persuading a majority of voters this time around that he deserved to be in the White House for another four years," Jim Kelly wrote in the magazine.

Bush was also Time's choice to appear on the cover in 2000 after winning the presidential election despite losing the popular vote.

His father, President George H. W. Bush, was named "Man of the Year" in 1990 for what Time called his mastery of foreign policy and his wavering domestic record.

Last year the magazine picked "The American Soldier."

"Obviously many supporters of the president will be pleased, many people who do not support the president will probably sigh," Kelly said.

"But even those who may not have voted for him will acknowledge that this is one of the more influential presidents of the last 50 years."

Kelly said he and his staff debated giving the award to others including Karl Rove, the president's influential political adviser, and filmmakers Michael Moore and Mel Gibson.

The winner must be "the person or persons who most affected the news and our lives, for good or for ill, and embodied what was important about the year, for better or for worse," he said.

U.S. aviator Charles Lindbergh was Time's first "Man of the Year" in 1927. Some selections have been notoriously unpopular, such as Adolf Hitler in 1938, Joseph Stalin in 1939 and 1942, and Iran's Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini in 1979.

i will not hear a single bad word against the esteeeeeeemed world leader

he has single handedly rid the world of terrorism.

he has forced democracy down the throat of ungrateful iraqis. one hundred thousand barbarians in iraq had to be killed for their own good before they sank to their knees and said," o great dubya, we accept your democracy"

he has made a friend of mushy who is being amply rewarded for sucking the dong of the esteeemed leader.

he is going to bring peace in kashmir by threatening us uncivilised indians and giving the country to his friend mushy.

he has destroyed muslim fundamentalism. no muslim terrorist will ever strike at anyone again for fear of the great one- you watch.

no, no,my friends. this great man thoroughly deserves the title. he is the man of the century. it is an insult to simply dub him the "person" of the year. is he not a man? why not call a spade a spade?

great one dubya. long live bush. god bless america

Vakil, you are right…. This US president is worth every word that Time magazine has acclaimed him to be.

As per me this courageous leader is the most boldest & tenacious President the US has ever had since Harry S. Truman, who brought the Japs to their knees by bombing Hiroshima & Nagasaki. Since then no other US president had the balls to take such bold decisions to save the world from tyranny & authoritarianism.

Now every American kid should memorize all the famous Dubya quotes to remember & treasure this great leader.

"Our enemies are innovative and resourceful - and so are we, They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people - and neither do we."

Thank you President Bush… May God bless you & God bless America!!!

)ks. I admit ... unlike you smartpants ... he is not a gifted gabster ... one more reason why unintelligentable people such as meself and millions more do identify with him. At least he is smart enough to know which end of opening cigar goes in ... some people didn't and ended up with wet cigars.

President Bush was never in to popularity contests ... he knows it ... American voters knew it.

Being a confirmed LLKC ... here is what I think ... appreciate the fact that we Indians having lived for centureis on bended knees being screwed by every Beggar and puke find it difficult to accept that leaders of other countries are courageous enough to go in and kick the living shiat out of enemies and arsoles. We Indians have never won a war ... we have never defeated a single enemy since Gandhi's idol King Ashoka turned in to a whore. We just dont know. We are a deprived lot.

More power to President Bush! Merry Xmas and a happy new year to all those Americans who voted for President Bush. Four more years of serious butt kicking ... Bush is back.






Yogi finding it difficult to believe that Sadam lovers still wakingup with wet dreams!


edit: Wishing all Sadam lovers at echarcha.com a very merry xmas and a happy new year.
