    Barack Obama appears with personalized presidential seal

    Does the bastardization of the Presidential seal by Obama bother anyone else?
    Doe BHO have so little respect for the office of the President that he feels he can take the liberty to put his name and his own slogan on the seal of our country's highest office? To me that shows a lack of respect and a level of arrogance never before seen in a presidential race.

    Over-react a little why doncha?

    Was a silly thing to do, but I'd say you're going a bit OTT about it.

    I thought it was a pretty lame thing to do actually. But not offensive enough to lose my vote...but he still has several months left. :D

    What I thought was even funnier was how nobody in the Daily Show audience laughed when Stewart made some pretty darn funny jokes about it...prompting Stewart to say "It's ok to laugh at him you know."

    Because we should vote for the person who's best to have a beer with?

    No, but the whole "snob", "elitist", "down to earth" discussion comes down to "who do you want to hang out with"? Personally, I don't care about those things in a president. I don't think any of them are particularly nice people or they wouldn't get to where they are.

    I'd say Obama and McCain are equally street-fighters when it comes to this election.

    Fair enough, but that isn't how I view it. To me someone that is a snob can't help but be colored by his or her own viewpoint and often has an arrogant attitude. This seal, while probably a non-issue, does smack of arrogance.
