Obama Copies Presidential Seal

The Obama campaign debuted a new emblem on Friday at a round table discussion with Democratic governors. The symbol, as anyone should notice, bears a strikingly similar appearance to the Presidential Seal. Amid a firestorm of criticism over the blatant mutilation of the one of America's revered symbols, the Obama campains has wisely chosen to drop the logo.

A spokesman for the Obama campaign told The Atlantic.com that the campaign decided to stop using the logo because it did not want to give the press a reason to label Obama as arrogant. I am sure they meant 'another' reason to label him as arrogant. The fact that Obama is arrogant is well established. What really bothers me about this logo is not that it is an arrogant attempt by Obama to symbolically lay claim to an office that he has not yet won, but that is shows a great disrespect for that office.

One more point about this logo. It may be crime. According to Title 18, Part 1, Chapter 33, Sec. 713 of the U.S. Code, it is a crime to use the likeness of, or any facsimile of the Presidential Seal. If Obama is trying to 'seal' the election deal, perhaps he should rethink his energy policy rather than engaging in arrogant, disrespectful, and criminal stunts.

Hope you don't mind, but since you riled my brains I submitted your URL to google, yahoo, and msn live, search engines.
Maybe it will increase your traffic. I did it, but I can't tell yet, since it takes a while to see
