Obama Changes Presidential Seal

Sen. Barack Obama has promised "change," and his campaign has already been hard at work changing one of the basic symbols of the nation - the Presidential Seal.


On Friday, the press was abuzz over the new seal, which was unveiled on Obama's podium when he spoke to a group of Democratic governors.


While the Obama seal does include the American bald eagle clutching arrows and an olive branch, the resemblance ends there.


The Latin phrase "E Pluribus Unum," which translates to "Out of many, one," now says "Vero Possumus." Press reports translate the Latin words as "Truly, we are able" - a rough translation of the Obama campaign slogan, "Yes we can."


The deletion of "E Pluribus Unum," long considered the de-facto motto of the United States, is not accidental for multiculturalists, who have long denigrated the concept that immigrants must strip away their old culture in favor of the "oneness" of American civilization. In the 1990s, such activists promoted the alternative concept of the nation's ethnic "mosaic" - rather than a single, overarching metaphor to describe American society. For example, Nation of Islam Leader Louis Farrakhan has pointedly criticized the "E Pluribus Unum" motto as not reflecting the nation's diversity.


Other Obama changes to the seal include the removal of the shield over the eagle's breast, representing the president's oath to defend the Constitution. The shield has been replaced with the letter "O" - presumably for Obama - and the image of a rising sun.


"This is too serious a contest about too serious of issues for a candidate to be playing make-believe on the trail," Brian Rogers, a spokesman for presumptive Republican nominee Sen. John McCain, told The Los Angeles Times.

What The......??????

This takes the cake. This guy is not about America. He is first and foremost about himself. Hence the "O" on the Eagle's chest.
QED He is not for American values as we know them or traditions we hold dear.
 
I can see it now, he'll recruit "Pee Wee Herman" to become the "Secretary of State".

If he gets in, we're doomed......

Titles are un-American.
Enough people raised a fury over this and the campaign issued a release saying it was a "one time thing" for a campaign event.

Still, I'm not sure why they felt the need to do it in the first place. It seems like a tacky gimmick. What's next? A flag with his face on it?

I found a picture of the seal while trying to find out what his real name was or is. It doesn't have the Latin. Look at the top left hand of this page. Whether any of the info on this page is true or not, the fact that the article stated that the seal was a one time thing is not true, because the web page was paid for by "Obama for America". So I guess he should tell is campaign to stop using it.
