The Obamaized Flag Poster Suddenly Disappears from Campaign Store


Last week, President Obama’s campaign paraphernalia store on his website was heavily criticized for having a poster of a U.S. flag that was Obamaized by having the field of fifty stars replaced with an Obama logo. Over the weekend, the item was suddenly disappeared down the Internet memory hole.

The poster, titled “Our Stripes: Flag Poster,” was criticized by nearly every conservative blog and news site on the web for the arrogance of replacing the fifty states with an Obama logo. It was said that it shows Obama imagines that there are no New Yorks, no Texases, no Californias, only the Obama states of America.

Whatever the meaning of the flag poster, the item is no longer at the campaign store. A visit to the page where it once resided now returns an error message. An Obama campaign spokesman claims that the reason the item no longer appears in the store is that it is sold out. This claim does not ring true to some.

Another observation was ruefully made about that Obama flag. It was noted was how similar its imagery was to the horrible attacks on our embassies. Just as the Obama flag featured jagged, irregular red stripes, many felt it was eerily similar to the bloody finger smears on the walls of one of our embassies after the attacks last week.
