President Obama has redesigned the American flag and ordered it flown from all government buildings starting in November.
It started as a limited edition American flag for sale by the Obama campaign, but President Obama loved the flag so much that he thought it best to “update” the American flag. The new Obama designed flag will be flying on all government buildings starting on November 7th, 2012.
This new American flag that replaces the 50 stars representing the 50 states with President Obama’s campaign logo. Sources say that this was the President’s own design.
Americans can buy one of the new flags directly from the White House for the low price $300 per flag (2 for $600).
Michelle Obama loves the new flag:
There is a second flag that looks like an American flag but in the shape of the United States. This flag will be used on “special occasions” as determined by the Special Occasions Czar in the White House.
Prior to this flag, the rule in American was: “The American flag shall never bear any mark, insignia, letter, word, figure, design, picture, or drawing of any nature,” according to U.S. flag code.” This rule was erased by President Obama.
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?”
“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?”
President Obama reacted to negative reactions by singing… “I, I’m so in love with you…”
