Link with design pics


The Obama campaign is now selling copies of an American flag painting that replaces the 50 stars in a blue field with the president’s campaign logo.

“Our Stripes: Flag Print” is being promoted on the Obama campaign website. The screen print is designed by Ross Bruggink and Dan Olson.

The limited-edition print costs $35.


President Obama’s version of the American flag.
Another painting resembled an outline of the continental US. The “Our Stripes: Country Print” was designed to look like an American flag, too. Like the other painting, the stars representing the 50 states were removed and replaced with Obama’s campaign logo.

Reaction on social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook has been overwhelmingly negative.

“This is so offensive,” one reader wrote. “I don’t know why I’m shocked, but I am. This stoops to new lows.”
Another reader offered this assessment: “Once again, very shameful. This is a disgrace".

“And just what was wrong with the flag with the stars and stripes?” a Facebook reader wondered. “Why must Obama create his own flag?”

The United States of Obama?

“A good number of my family, including me and my twin sons, have served under the flag,” another wrote. “This is so far beyond insulting. I can’t imagine anyone who considers themself a patriot voting for Obama. Who does he think he is?”



Both prints are available online. You can also purchase Obama yoga pants, Obama martini glasses, and coffee mugs emblazoned with President Obama’s birth certificate.

I find the design very similar to these images taken in Libya just a few days ago.

I believe a legitimate argument can be made for flag desecration.

Excellent and sobering observation, CL.

The AUDACITY of hope...

Could anyone else here imagine the reaction if a Republican President had been such a blantant egomaniac as this clown ?
