To compile the list, we considered hundreds of candidates from various walks of life all around the globe, and measured their power along four dimensions.
First, we asked whether the candidate has power over lots of people.
Next we assessed the financial resources controlled by each person.
Then we determined if the candidate is powerful in multiple spheres.
Lastly, we made sure that the candidates actively used their power.
U.S. President Barack Obama emerged, unanimously, as the world’s most powerful person, for the second year running. Obama was the decisive winner of the 2012 U.S. presidential election, and now he gets four more years to push his agenda.The President faces major challenges, including an unresolved budget crisis, stubbornly high unemployment and renewed unrest in the Middle East. But Obama remains the unquestioned commander in chief of the world’s greatest military, and head of its sole economic and cultural superpower.
I think we should send this article to every obstructionist teabagging Republican politician in Washington and remind them that THIS is the man that won the election, THIS is the man with all the power, and THIS is the man to whom they better start showing some damn respect!
No more obstructionism, no more yelling "You lie" when he addresses Congress, and no more of this kind of shit:
The man has earned a second term, he demonstrated his ability to do the job, and he has earned the respect of the entire world.
