    COLUMBIA, Mo. — Several Missouri schools are complaining about notebooks and pencils with designs similar to the logos from President Barack Obama's campaign.

    The Columbia Daily Tribune reports that complaints from unhappy officials at three Missouri schools have prompted the supply company responsible for the materials to travel across the state recalling notebooks and pencils.

    The design at issue includes a picture of pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters. Above the coins is the phrase: "CHANGE" and underneath it reads: "WE CAN BELIEVE IN." Below the words is a circle used by Obama's campaign, in which the top half is blue and the bottom is red with three white lines cutting through it.

    At least one notebook and pencil with the design have been purchased from a school supply machine at a Columbia elementary school. Two families have complained about the design, and Principal Mary Sue Gibson said she planned to complain to the supply company.

    "I just don't want to get into that political arena at all," Gibson said.

    Greg Jones, a sales representative with Pencil Wholesale, said the design was an accident.

    Jones, who delivers supplies to about 800 schools, said he remembers seeing the design but didn't think anything about it. He said the supplies were designed by a different company and that "the art department was trying to be cutesy."

    I can't tell if that is pro-obama or anti-obama propoganda. Either way its propoganda and should have no business being funded by public tax dollars....PERIOD.

    No worries, the Grand Obama Youth plan has already failed and by the time he is finished in the White House, such items will be nothing but cheap novelty items at flea markets nationwide. Price for a buck or less.

    I'm thinking this cover is a sly insult to obama's slogan....showing the only change you can believe in is the stacks of change he leaves you with when he lets the government take all your cash for "the common good"

    You'd think the picture of money would be attractive enough to overcome that.

    But that is just trickle down change. Not real money.
