Is That Barack Obama’s Seal of Disapproval On His MySpace?

June 24, 2008

Barack Obama, subliminal man still going strong.

Last week, Barack Obama unveiled a new campaign seal, (as Ace so cleverly put it the “Obamadential Seal“). Needless to say it caused quite a stir.

The seal resembled all to closely the US Presidential Seal, which could very well be illegal by the way. As John McCormack at the Weekly Standard queried:

Did Obama break the law?

Nearly as soon as the usage was reported Obama’s camp stated it was a one time only deal. And it would be discarded. No harm no foul. [roll eyes]

Barack Obama’s presidential campaign is retiring a presidential seal that made its debut at a Chicago event last week.

“It was a one-time seal for a one-time use,” Obama spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.

Does the press think Obama is arrogant? Yes. Does the seal represent arrogance? Only tangentially, actually. The worry for Obama’s image managers is that it gives the press a pretext to call Obama arrogant, an example for them to add to a list of arrogant moments, and a way to distract them from what Obama is saying

Arrogance and Obama go together like beer and pretzels.

The “Obamadential Seal” is visible on Obama’s MySpace profile.

Granted it is not a full seal but the main image remains.

A mere technicality? Close or no cigar?

This posting is pretty darn rough, but I wanted to get a jump on it. I may continue updating.

    “Arrogance and Obama go together like beer and pretzels. ”


    Ever heard of another guy whose most striking achievement consisted of serving as a state legislator from Illinois who published two autobiographies before he turned 45 years old? Heck even Kennedy only had one autobiographical book to his name and at least that was about something interesting in his life. Large ego, thy name is Barack.

    Hey Velvet, I haven’t been able to post too much. I still don’t have Internet/Phone/Cable at my New House so I have to blog limited at work.
    Verizon takes forever to install their stuff, but I heard it’s worth it.

    Anyway Obama’s seal looks very Nazi like. There’s something totalitarian about his movement. It’s scarry!

    When I first saw the seal, I thought that it was a photoshop job and not actually used.

    Then I found out otherwise and blew my stack.

    The man is arrogant beyond belief!

    Obama: “Unlike George Bush, I won’t wait until the sixth year of my presidency to sit down with the automakers. I’ll meet with them during my campaign, and I’ll meet with them as president to talk about how we’re going to build the cars of the future right here in Michigan.”

    Zowie Obama already claimed a second term.

    It is always the first word I think of with him – arrogant. That and the pose he strikes with his nose tilted up in the air. He honestly thinks he’s just that much better than everyone else.
