CHICAGO, Illinois (CNN) – Presumptive Democratic nominee Barack Obama sat down in Chicago Friday morning to discuss the economy with visiting Democratic governors, but all eyes were on the Illinois senator’s podium bearing, what might be described as, a quasi-presidential seal – a new Obama campaign logo.
The seal includes the same bald eagle as the actual presidential seal clutching an olive branch and arrows in its talons, but instead of a shield covering the center of the eagle’s body, the Obama version displays the campaign’s trademark “O.” Unlike the Presidential seal, which includes the words “Seal of the President of the United States” around the circumference, “Obama for America” and “www.barackobama.com” grace the top and bottom of Obama's
18 USC Sec. 713 ...
(a) Whoever knowingly displays any printed or other likeness of the great seal of the United States, or of the seals of the President or the Vice President of the United States, or the seal of the United States Senate, or the seal of the United States House of Representatives, or the seal of the United States Congress, or any facsimile thereof, in, or in connection with, any advertisement, poster, circular, book, pamphlet, or other publication, public meeting, play, motion picture, telecast, or other production, or on any building, monument, or stationery, for the purpose of conveying, or in a manner reasonably calculated to convey, a false impression of sponsorship or approval by the Government of the United States or by any department, agency, or instrumentality thereof, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than six months, or both.
(b) Whoever, except as authorized under regulations promulgated by the President and published in the Federal Register, knowingly manufactures, reproduces, sells, or purchases for resale, either separately or appended to any article manufactured or sold, any likeness of the seals of the President or Vice President, or any substantial part thereof, except for manufacture or sale of the article for the official use of the Government of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than six months, or both.
I guess he's above the law now too.

You guys...there you go again. I'm not a "you guys" and you know it.
Ruled by fear-mongers...have you read some of the stuff Wildo and Patters post? Talk about fear mongering.
Did i specifically mention you Paul it was a general statement?
but when i did,
i did think of you.
No I haven't read what Wildo,and Patters have posted. But there a good chance I'd agree with them.
Like i said i'm tired of going around and around it never goes anywhere. I'd much rather discuss other topics. All of us have much, much more in common than we don't.
It's tacky. I don't like the loko as it's an obvious rip-off. It's against the law? So is speeding. Tempest in a teapot as usual from the Obama opponents. Really boring. I thought the general election campaign was going to be exciting n stuff...YAWN!
Step right up sheeple! Pick the least offensive candidate. There will be no discussion of issues, as usual!
