You did. And you found a statement somewhere, anywhere on the site saying that they were redesigning the American flag?

Please link to that statement.

Otherwise, you didn't find any evidence at the official Obama website that they are redesigning the American flag, and your visit to their website was an exercise in futility. Right?

Is Obama's campaign selling for $35.00 the item we are discussing on this thread? If it is true then he deserves the heat that comes from it.

A redesigned flag?

No, Obama's campaign is selling a print/poster of some artwork, where an artist referenced the American flag, but came up with his own rendition.

Other artists have designed art based on the American flag, and sold it. Patriotic artwork is its own little niche in the artworld. And it wouldn't be art if they simply reproduced the American flag. The image has to be manipulated in some way in order to express the artist's viewpoint.

Nobody, though, is redesigning the American flag.

I certainly have problems with Obama on several issues, dislike many of the things he's done but this is just another desperate attempt to make something out of nothing. It's art work, a logo. Not a redesign of the flag and not a fascist attempt to convert us to muslims. I have zero faith the system will get fixed and we'll continue to fight with each other on who to vote for. Seems every election is getting worse. This time we get to choose between rotten eggs or spoiled milk. Keep fighting over garbage like this. Meanwhile both these parties continue to strip away our freedoms.

I made it through about 20 post before I realized that the people calling it a redesign are idiots.

-the design isn't a flag
-the design wasn't commissioned by the Administration
-the design is not even an official logo of the Obama campaign

Put all that together and you have Obama is redesigning the American flag... idiots.

I am sure that no matter what he selects as our new National Anthem I will never stand at attention to that flag when that new Anthem is played. I don't know what would be done to me for not doing so but I sure as hell will find out in case he pushes this crap through.
IF, IF, IF, is that all you've got!?!

I swear, the reactions of some posters here makes me think of a total hypochondriac...if they sneeze they believe they have cancer; if they have a hangnail they are positive they're going to lose their arm.

THERE IS NO 'OTHER' FLAG!
That image is a campaign logo, just like all the others in history, dem and repub.

Gosh, if a logo can get these people is such a tizzy that they infer (from a logo) that the Anthem is going to be changed; that the flag is going to be changed, there is just no hope for them. They must squeek and squeal when they see a mouse!

Did you see what Romney did?? He besmirched the sovereignty of 42 US States by changing the flag into the shape of an eagle and replacing a stripe with his NAME! He would surely burn the constitution on his inauguration day! This is also very disrespectful to our national bird!! Fox News, where are you??

Now you can discuss the implications (if any) regarding replacing the stars with the Obama logo. Most likely the Obamanots will never find anything wrong with the idea.

When I see it waving over the White House, I'll believe that there might be cause for concern.

Until then it is a campaign gimmick, nothing more.
