Barack Obama Appears with Personalized Presidential Seal

Barack Obama Appears with Personalized Presidential Seal
By Michael Saul and Celeste Katz

Yes, he can. But, really: Oh, no, he didn't!

Barack Obama's presidential campaign raised eyebrows and elicited snickers Friday when it unveiled the Obamamania version of the presidential seal.

At a meeting with Democratic governors in Chicago, Obama sat behind a rostrum with a seal that looked not-so-coincidentally like the official seal of the President of the United States. Featuring an eagle clutching arrows and an olive branch, the seal contained a Latin phrase for a touch of gravitas that roughly translates to "Yes, We Can."

Asked to explain the new seal, Obama spokeswoman Jen Psaki said, "It's a mix of presidential politics and a call for hope and change." Snarked John McCain spokesman Tucker Bounds, "I think we can all agree that we need presidential candidates that are serious enough not to play make-believe on the campaign trail."

"It's laughable, ridiculous, preposterous and revealing all at the same time," Bounds said.

Boy, is he putting the cart before the horse... in his typical 'the-world-revolves-around-me' manner.

The fake presidential seal may be make-believe, but as part of a marketing campaign, it continually puts the "I am the President" in people minds!

What Obama has done to the Presidential Seal is disgusting beyond belief.

And to think how many Americans support his candidacy for the highest office in our land!
