Obama: Screw the American flag, I got my own symbol!

I guess the Obamamessiah decided that Old Glory just wasn’t good enough for his private campaign jet. He took that old and busted thing down and put up something really awesome: his own Obama symbol!

As part of a month-long aircraft makeover, a painted American flag was removed from the tail of Sen. Barack Obama’s official campaign airplane and was replaced with the presidential candidate’s trademark “O” symbol.

The refurbished 757 was unveiled to members of the news media today, 41 of whom boarded the craft and took off to meet Obama in Amman, Jordan, where the presidential candidate will stop as part of a Middle Eastern and European tour.

Obama traveled to the Mideast earlier this week on board a separate airplane.

Fox News blogger Bonny Kapp, traveling on Obama’s new airplane, reported:

“The North American jet that flew Obama and his traveling crew around for much of the primary season was refurbished with new seats and power for each passenger a must on the campaign trail. And the plane that once had an American flag on its tail now sports the Obama ‘O.'”

Obama’s ‘O’ symbol is red, white and blue.

Most official U.S. government aircraft, including Air Force One, have U.S. flags on their tails.

Both Fox News and the Chicago Sun-Times posted pictures of the Obama campaign’s redressed airplane, which does not have an American flag or any other U.S. national symbols on the section that sports the airplane door from which Obama and his team will enter and exit.

The airplane boasts Obama’s anthem, “Change We Can Believe In” and the candidate’s website address.
Here are some pictures of the new wonder plane:



Most politicians are OK with flying around with an American flag on their private jets. But not the Obamamessiah, oh no. He’s special. He deserves his own special symbol. The American flag just wasn’t cutting it for him.

You know, this guy is so arrogant that I’m surprised he can fit his giant head onto that plane. It’s not about whether or not he should be allowed to do this; of course he’s allowed to. It just shows an amazing level of egotism and narcissism, which of course anyone with half a brain already knew that Obama possessed. What’s amazing is how much Obama flaunts it. He doesn’t even try to appear humble.

But, who cares about how egotistical and narcissistic he is? He stands for change, and that’s all you need to know.
