Some of you seem to think this is made up.

You can buy the Obama Flag from his campaign website for $35.00
It's listed as "limited edition".

Where is the creditable proof that Obama wants to change the flag? Duh, there isn't any because he doesn't.

I can explain it. It isn't a flag, folks. It is a friggin painting. It isn't official, it isn't a national emblem. It is a painting. So perhaps Fox (and the original poster) should modify their title so that certain sheeple won't get the WRONG IDEA. Oh wait...

that was Fox's plan, wasn't it?

Stale bread. We've seen this exact same thread here before, probably a year or two ago.

Apparently the Obama haters at Fox and around here were absent from school the day they explained what the stripes on the flag stand for.

You are sadly deluded.

For all you dipsticks who refuse to discuss the topic and attack the medium, you have been provided the link to Obama's website. Now you lefties have no more excuses to attack the premise of the thread. You will either have to discuss the facts, or run away like little obamanot cowards.

Looking at the website that is shown in the OPs link it seems to have been designed by Ross Bruggink and Dan Olson of Studio MPLS.

When you look at their site it doesn't give a design credit to President Obama or infact to anyone else at all. From looking at this you could almost think that whilst it is being sold at https://store.barackobama.com it isn't actually the work of anyone other than them themselves. Looking at the headline of the OP and indeed on Obama Campaign Redesigns American Flag | FOX News & Commentary: Todd Starnes you would think this was not the case.

Is this an oversight on the part of Studio MPLS?

Maybe you need to read more closely.

No one said it was a "flag", only that the American flag had been redesigned by the Obama campaign. But, at least on liberal did read the link. Congrats!!!

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.
