Memo to Santa
Time magazine named Barack Obama Person of the Year. They said Obama really does not want accolades, truth be known his first 100 days started November 5th, when he spent 5 hours in meetings to begin the work as President.
"For having the confidence to sketch an ambitious future in a gloomy hour, and for showing the competence that makes Americans hopeful he might pull it off, the president-elect is TIME's Person of the Year," the newsweekly said.
Asked about the state of the economy, Obama said "I think we should anticipate that 2009 is going to be a tough year.
"And if we make some good choices, I'm confident that we can limit some of the damage in 2009 and that in 2010 we can start seeing an upward trajectory on the economy. "But this is a difficult hole that we've dug ourselves into."
Unbelievably, Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson was the next runner up- maybe for Bush lackey screw up of the year award.... but certainly not person of the year!
