President Barack Obama took the Cult of Obama and narcissism to perhaps an unprecedented level on Wednesday when his campaign began selling posters that desecrated the image of the American flag by replacing the stars on the flag with the “O” symbol that serves as the Obama campaign’s logo.
Obama’s Twitter account (@BarackObama) sent a tweet that said, “A poster to say there are no red states or blue states, only the United States: http://OFA.BO/gfHgXM ."
The tweet linked to Obama’s campaign store, where people could purchase a limited edition “OUR STRIPES: FLAG PRINT” poster for $35.
Ross Bruggink and Dan Olson of Studio MPLS designed the screen print and, according to the website, there are 250 posters for sale.
Another poster, also for sale for $35, is a map of the United States depicting the flag, with the Obama campaign logo again replacing the stars.
Even though Obama's tweet said "there are no red states or blue states, only the United States," the posters suggest Obama and his campaign believe we are living in the United States of Obama.
These posters are beyond creepy. And they are also stunning displays of egotism and disrespect even from a president not known for his humility and reverence for America's traditions.
