    He didn't change the seal - more sensationalism. He simply used iconography from the seal in a campaign logo.

    The real sensationalism is running around calling everything sensationalism.

    Very smart idea!

    He is getting people to be used to the image of him behind the presidential seal.. without using the actual seal...
    The more he looks presidential, the more people will vote for him.

    A great marketing strategy!
    I wish I would have thought of it!

    Of course the last thing we want to do is to be substantial. Cause then the truth comes out, some of the anti-Obamas here support his Robin Hood tax plan. I still haven't found an Obama policy I like.

    I agree with Tim - great marketing ploy.

    Interesting observance (from Wiki'):
    Obamas slogan "Yes we can" is in the caption " vero possumus".

    Observed:
    The missing stars above the eagle's head...... symbol of the 13 original states?!
    The missing clouds above the stars...... possibly symbollic of 'under God' ?!

    The circle on the eagles breast......... symbolic? of what? globalism? unity? eteranal (ring)? or (to authenticate the sensationalism.....) a crescent or partial arc disquised as a circle but divided bywhat appears to be papers or pages?

    What looks like a rod supporting the round shield across the eagles breast.... could it be a sickle.....or sword......or whatever they call that thing......(appealing once more to the sensational)

    ===================
    Regardless,
    definately psychological appeal to the 'authoritorial presence' of the familiar and advertising impact of symbols and symbollics.:sleeping_2:

    Maybe he thinks that is the change we can believe in. As you said, shameful.

    I liked how the Ramones replaced the arrows with a baseball bat.
