The world's most powerful people
Forbes presents its annual ranking of the individuals who wield the greatest influence. Here's a look at the top 10.

The list portrayed a variety of people holding different positions of power determined/reported by a single source! This time of year the "most powerful person" should be a tie:
1) Santa Claus - His name brings smiles and hope to all regardless of one's political or religious beliefs, as well as wealth is irrelevant. People of all ages, backgrounds, race, or creed are transformed into children again. He exudes happiness and simplicity in a world that is mired in war and greed.
2) Jesus - A single figure that brings a deep-rooted belief that there is hope. An individual that all can call upon for a sense of sanity and stability.
Although your beliefs may not concur with these, it is a wonderful country we live in where others allow you to cherish and follow your own beliefs.
To those with legitimate reasons to question if Obama should be on top (meaning that your post does not include words such as "bozo") this list does not say that they are the "best" or "most moral" people. It says that they have power. Do you think China would have made the list if it were a "best leader" list?
Like him or not, Obama commands the largest military in the world and his decisions (good or bad) will effect the global economy. This is what this list is about-not popularity.
Is this the best that we can do ? A person that I would vote for isn't on your list. That would be Thomas Jefferson. I saw a quote of his in the paper today that reminded me of how brilliant he was . You judge "It is error alone which requires the support of government. Truth can stand by itself".
You have to love the liberal media- since when is a "decisive" win a simple plurality of the general population, and "dominating the electoral college" pulling out wins in swing states where the vote was split by narrow margins for Obama. He can't blame the budget on "inheritance" from the Republicans anymore, and he's opposed to (and intends to cut spending for) the same military superpower that has made him one of the most influential men in the world. His political agenda is to tax the few to provide for the many who won't work. The role of government is not to provide a living for everyone, but to provide everyone with a life - free of encumbrances from Government.
This is probably not the first time in the history that the choice of "Most Powerful" equated with the "Biggest As*hole," but came nowhere close to "Most Respected," Most Trusted" or "Most Honored."
Many Presidents have been hated, but none to the degree of B.O.
Goodnight, America, I loved you...
@toadvine: PAY ATTENTOIN, IF POSSIBLE.
"The man who will end America as we ever knew it." And how is that Toadvine? America is a rainbow. Get used to it or move to your own corner of the world.
The man who was in charge when america collapsed ... was Bush..
"The man whose piece of legislation carries his own name, Obamacare", given to him by the likes of you, will forever be known as the single greatest piece of legislation in modern history.
The rest of you post is just a childish rant. BTW, toadvine sends like wc.
