Brand Obama: New government stamp for stimulus projects coincidentally looks like “O”

posted at 4:15 pm on March 3, 2009 by Allahpundit

I’m being cynical in thinking The One would stoop to something so vulgar as a permanent campaign, aren’t I? Oh dear.

In remarks at the Department of Transportation this morning, Mr. Obama referenced the new emblems.

“We’re also making it easier for Americans to see what projects are being funded with their money as part of our recovery. So in the weeks to come, the signs denoting these projects are going to bear the new emblem of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act,” Obama said. “These emblems are symbols of our commitment to you, the American people — a commitment to investing your tax dollars wisely, to put Americans to work doing the work that needs to be done. So when you see them on projects that your tax dollars made possible, let it be a reminder that our government — your government — is doing its part to put the economy back on the road of recovery.”

This is sort of like Bush launching a new government employment program and labeling it the WPA. Verdict: Cooler than the Obama seal, not as cool as the official Obama-cult secret handshake, which really should have been incorporated into the design. And with that, I yield the floor to the many photoshoppers who are reading this and just rarin’ to go. If we get any good ones, I’ll update.

Coincidence my a$$. Hopefully that was probably sarcasm. Someone else already said it, it’s just creepy.
Something also creepy about the new Pepsi logo around town on city buses too. Way too much like the Obama logo, wish they’d get rid of it.

Excuse me, but do ANY of Obama’s logos have a reference of America on it? You could take many of these “O-Logos” and assume they belong to some other foreign nation. What a self-important administration.

Symbolism is how it begins. Since when do taxpayers pay for such crap in America?

The “green leaf” was just screaming for this, my effort. Tee-hee.

Suddenly I can’t get that creepy “Look for the Union Label” song out of my head.
