Oh No He Diyint!!
Oh yes he diyid!

Kinda putting the shawarma before the cous-cous, aren't you, Barry? Barack Obama appears with personalized presidential seal

Barack Obama introduced his own take on the presidential seal on Friday. Yes, he can. But, really: Oh, no, he didn't!

Barack Obama's presidential campaign raised eyebrows and elicited snickers Friday when it unveiled the Obamamania version of the presidential seal.

At a meeting with Democratic governors in Chicago, Obama sat behind a rostrum with a seal that looked not-so-coincidentally like the official seal of the President of the United States. Featuring an eagle clutching arrows and an olive branch, the seal contained a Latin phrase for a touch of gravitas that roughly translates to "Yes, We Can."

Asked to explain the new seal, Obama spokeswoman Jen Psaki said, "It's a mix of presidential politics and a call for hope and change." Snarked John McCain spokesman Tucker Bounds, "I think we can all agree that we need presidential candidates that are serious enough not to play make-believe on the campaign trail."

"It's laughable, ridiculous, preposterous and revealing all at the same time," Bounds said.
Are you sure it wasn't Jackie Chiles who origionally said that?

Is this real? Its not photoshpped are anything? I ask because its hard for me to believe that Obama is quite this arrogant(although he strikes me as pretty arrogant)
