Skip to comments.Fox News' Carl Cameron Reports on Obama Substituting His Name on the Presidential Seal - Video

Will the Obama people stop at nothing? Don't they have any deciency?
When I was watching Fox TV at 6:05 pm and BHO was having the meeting with the Governors, I noticed the seal in front of him. I told my husband, "That looks like the Presidential Seal". Sure enough the Fox reporters discussed it and showed how it looked the same, but with BHO's name on it.
He thinks he is the President of the United States already.
Someone has to put a stop to this seal that he uses. He has no respect for the President of the United States nor the people of the United States. It makes him look like he is the President.
I hope someone can put up the video, so everyone can see this seal and post their complaints.
UPDATE: Here is the video of the Fox News' report by Carl Cameron . . . (see video)

I don’t see anything wrong with that personally.
Reminds me of Kerry having “John Kerry President” instead of “John Kerry for President” on his signage, or even on a mock Airforce One.
Somebody on another thread observed that it is the type of sleezy mindgames that the Marxists engage in. I’m inclined to agree. Who knows if it is a cynical, conscious attempt to manipulate people, or if it is just an unconscious manifestation of who they are.
Either way, it demonstrates that the far left is either mentally disturbed or sleezy, manipulative, evil and dangerous people. Perhaps both.
I only find this not all that offensive because there are so many things about Obama that are a lot more offensive. Ralph Nader has to be pretty annoyed right now. His usual role is to run to the left of the Democratic candidate, but Obama is so far left that there isn’t any room to his left. Obama has connections with domestic terrorists like Bill Ayers and is supported by foreign terrorist groups like Hamas. How can Nader beat that?
Next Obama will appear with a crown of thorns on his head.
That’ll happen if he loses the election, or the Dems figure out how to get rid of him before the Convention.
How much of your tent does your camel take up at this point?
I can only hope that this tactic will be like the bridegroom seeing the bride in her bridal gown BEFORE the wedding and bring him bad luck at election time. How cheeky. Let McCain do that and see what a howl would come out of the lefty Marxist/Commie/Stalinist club..
I think the US should defend its ‘copyright’ to its’ Presidential seal, after all,....18 USCS § 713
Use of likenesses of the great seal of the United States, the seals of the President and Vice President, the seal of the United States Senate, the seal of the United States House of Representatives, and the seal of the United States Congress
(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.
This man is the Devil and we are doomed if he gets to be President.
there was a clip of the view i saw this morning.. the ‘women’ were talking about m.obama... one of them referred to her as the ‘first lady’... as if he was already the president.
amazing.. these people truly are idiots.
I just think it’s tacky to turn everything into a “logo op”. I think it’s classless to make an obvious take-off on the seal. It just shouldn’t be done, especially in the context of a presidential race. There is no Office of Obama or whatever to warrant a seal.
Fred Thompson did that in a commercial of his I saw (ended with his name and then “president” appears under it).
I liked it.
Nope. They are 'real' freepers. Many 'conservatives' actually pray that Obama win the presidency (and who knows, they may vote for him as well) for reasons such as: (1) to teach a lesson to the Republicans, (2) to have Obama leads the country so bad that Americans will long for a 'conservative' candidate in 2012 with shiny armors that will rescue the country, or(3) to 'save' the 'conservative' movements from people like McCain. If you read enough posts in FR, you'll see one or a variant of those 'reasons'.
link to video - scroll down.
I'm a professional artist - for a while, I painted copies of Old Masters and the French Impressionists.
However, copyright laws prohibit using the work of any painters that have not been dead at least 75 years.
There's also protection of logos. You cannot use someone else's logo - even if you change it slightly. If it's obviously a take-off, it's illegal.
and according to what you posted, he should be, at the least, fined and ordered to cease and desist.
Agreed. I can't believe how often someone on this board says:
"We shouldn't make an issue of ABC -- there are many better things to criticize Obama for."
"We shouldn't make an issue of DEF -- there are many better things to criticize Obama for."
"We shouldn't make an issue of GHI -- there are many better things to criticize Obama for."
If we take everything off the table, then he will be a flawless candidate about whom nothing bad can be said. Personally, I'll criticize him for any one of 1000 reasons. I do not limit myself to one or two "really good" points.
YES WE CAN HAVE POSSUM FOR DINNER! IT'S THE OTHER WHITE MEAT.
Obama is showing great disrespect for American voters who haven’t elected him to lead as yet. He hasn’t earned the seal.
Spitting on American traditions will apparently be his first goal.
President Reagan wouldn’t even remove his suit coat in the Oval Office out of respect.....B. Hussein, has attempted to turn the great seal into a ghetto vanity plate.
That's a keeper!
I checked Obama’s website - he lists 55 states. I’m confused.
Lighten up francis
Sorry... my bad
If obama says there are 55 states.... well... who am I to disagree.. :)
Of course..this is a “smoke and mirrors” publicity stunt, but it offends me on many levels.
If a Republican had done this....
His platform is very scary...
Many people will think this is a great thing...
bump with no comment.
His ego is going to cost him the race. Watch.
Hussein has no respect for his flesh and blood mother...why should he have any respect for the lifeless great seal?
That’s his communist, rolling hills of socialism BS symbol. There’s a thread around here with the comparisons to Stalin/Mao/etc that describes it beautifully.
Another idea. Get the old German Wehrmacht breast eagle and paste the Obama logo over the swastika. See how that works.
You don’t disrespect the President or his seal.
They are Americas symbols of the government.
You can disrespect the man when he is not in an official capacity as President.
OMG!! This is a BIG redux of Hitlery smugly telling KK Couric...”IT WILL BE ME!”That sentence alone come back to bite her in the butt!! LOOK WHO HAS EGG ON THEIR FACE NOW...Bawahahhaha...OsAMA’s fate will be the same! MARK IT!!
I think that is what he is hoping for with this. If this doesn't work he will try something else.
Was that same standard applied to Clinton around here? /devilsadvocate
That should ONLY be reserved for the elected President - certainly not a clown like the Obomination.
Forgot the PUKE alert.
I wonder what Cafepress will do with the HUNDREDS of Obama T-Shirt designs if he loses. If you go there and sort by relevance it seems that they think Obama is the only thing relevant. Hmmm...
Let him use it. It makes him look like Barney Fife with his bullet.
The American voter is playing Andy Griffith’s part. If we unlock that drawer and give OBarney the pistol, we are headed into dire straits.
I spotted the change!
GREAT comment and I agree with you!
If the eagle were changed to a dead albatross, Obama could wear his seal on a chain around his neck.
It reminds me of what a what a newly converted friend of mine said to me last week - “we need to concentrate on the positive, everyone has their faults”. Couldn’t believe it.
talk about copy right infringements. And to think that certain news corps are coming down on bloggers - he’s taken it a bit further.
You don’t know how right you are.
