The Flip-Flopper in Chief: Obama in 2010, It’s Inappropriate to Use Presidential Seal While Campaigning …Obama Now: Not So Much, I Take it Back
Yet another flip-flop from the do as I say, not as I do President …
Once again President Barack Obama has gone back on his word that he was not going to do something. In 2010 White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs told CBS News that it had been decided “that at strictly political events we would not use” the presidential seal. Guess what … its back. Although it breaks no campaign law to display the Presidential seal at a campaign event, it just is one more instance that Obama has gone back on his word. President Obama had stated that they would not use it at any strictly political events. Then again, Obama also told the American people that Obamacare was “absolutely not a tax” and lied there too. However, for the liberal Democrat MSM complex when it pertains to Obama, its a “change of heart”, when its concerning Mitt Romney it would be called a contradiction or worse.
Of course Barack Obama has had issues with Presidential seal in the past
For the first time at one of President Obama’s re-election campaign events, his lectern displayed the presidential seal.
It had been the policy of the Obama White House that the presidential seal would not be displayed at purely political and campaign events.
The policy ended today at Mr. Obama’s campaign speech on the campus of Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh, where the presidential seal adorned his lectern.
Until now, a campaign sign was often affixed to the lectern at campaign events. Earlier in the day, at a campaign speech in Poland, Ohio, a placard bearing the slogan “Betting on America” was affixed to the lectern. The same was the case yesterday at other stops on his bus tour.
