Barack Obama sure likes his symbolism.
Who can ever forget the hopeful rising sun coming up over a horizon of stripes, suggesting a new day of change coming?
Or the Obama for President seal, complete with a spread-eagled eagle, heart filled with the hope of Obama's first seal?
And certainly not the self-adulatory hubris of the Office of the President Elect.

I have a button I’m making. It’s red on black with Army stencil lettering that reads F.O..
She is perfect and beautiful as she ever was. God Bless her......
I was just going to post that!
We’ve nicknamed the mascot “Mr. Stimulus.”
“I understand the marijuana and the bleeding red cross and the vacuous space over recovery, but, what is with the stars?”
the stars are what you see once you get knocked in the head from Obama’s plan
Now I know what it reminds me of!
Remember the camera from the 1953 version of War of the Worlds...
ding ding ding- we have a winner!
Eating a healthy helping of Pork Barbeque could have accomplished the same thing.
