Barack Obama has a different logo each week and this week he is unveiling a logo that has the catchy phrase “Buy American, Vote for Barack Obama.” Obama, his people and their union puppets are trying to cast the sainted one as the true patriot with the best interests of Americans at heart. This is all in response to John McCain saying he would rather hear 50,000 Harleys than 200,000 Berliners to which the Obama camp pointed out that McCain voted against a bill that would require the US government to buy American made motorcycles.
As the Obama camp was quick to point out, McCain opposed legislation that would have forced the U.S. government to buy American-made motorcycles.
Let’s dispense with that first. While it is admirable to want to buy American the truth of the matter is that not all American made products are superior to others on the market and often the prices of American products are hugely inflated because of union workers and their contracts. On this issue, I agree with John McCain in that the government should not be forced to buy products simply because they are built here. There is a bidding process and it should be followed. Of course we have seen how that gets messed up when politicians want to dispense political favors (think Air Force refueling tanker).
Now on to the logo. I think it is supposed to be a combination of the Harley logo and the Obama logo but to tell the truth it appears like a flying a$$hole to me which is most appropriate when referring to the sainted one. You can see the logo at Lady J USA. [Thanks for the heads up Lady J]
I wonder how it is a man whose mother did not marry an American (she shopped elsewhere), who has a questionable past with regard to his birth records and who takes illegal donations from non citizens can discuss buying American with a straight face.
I also wonder if all the dope he used as a teen was American grown or imported from other countries.
The majority of Harley owners in this country are not the kind of people who would vote for Obama. His camp knows this and admits it is putting on a show to try and play them on the issue.
“Harley riders aren’t typically supportive of Democratic candidates,” the aide says. “But we’re making a play for them by saying that Obama’s economic policies are the true patriotic ones.” TPM
They are making a play by SAYING that Obama’s policies are the true patriotic ones. Saying something does not make it so. How this translates is; “We are saying that we are patriotic in order to fool these redneck, knuckle dragging bikers into voting for Obama.”
It is insulting to bikers and it questions John McCain’s patriotism. As far as that goes there is no comparison. McCain has a record of patriotism that is unmatched by any Democrat much less Obama. However, was it not Obama who said he would never question another person’s
“I will never question the patriotism of others in this campaign. And I will not stand idly by when I hear others question mine.” MSNBC
I guess we can add this to the growing list of lies and flip-flops the sainted one is compiling.
Anyone who votes for this guy is a moron or more likely, they are what I think his new logo looks like…
