KUSA - Some viewers contacted 9NEWS Saturday, questioning the design of the credentials to see Sen. Barack Obama accept the Democratic Party's presidential nomination at INVESCO Field at Mile High.

The viewers say with the stars and blue field in the lower left corner, it looks like an upside down American flag. Published flag etiquette states the stars should always be displayed in the upper left corner. An upside down flag represents an international symbol of extreme distress.

Wow - certainly a hidden message there! (and that message would be: the printer's an idiot?)

Upside down flag, removing the flag from his airplane, his mentor and pastor with G..D. America. What's next with this amateur. His disrespect for the flag and the US is astounding. God help us if he gets elected Prez.

I agree it's a bad design, but it doesn't look "upside down". It just looks like the various elements were "mish-moshed" together. Stripes don't emerge from the shield diagonally, after all.

Now this is just ticky tack shit. Maybe Obama and the text are upside down.:rolleyes:

A white stripe borders the bottom edge of the shield when the flag is properly displayed. You can see the white stripe bordering the top edge on the Obama ticket.

http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c12/dtharman/Obama/genthumbashx.jpgI think it's quite honorable that Obama is warning us of the effects of his "change" should he get elected. When everything starts to fall apart, he can always point his finger at the electorate and say "I told you so", thus absolving himself of any blame.

This is a ridiculous defense. At best it suggests that the DUMocRAT Party is incapable of fixing a minor foul up because they are SOOOOO busy with "real" issues.

Face it, they can't get it right the first time, they can't spare the miniscule effort to fix the initial foul-up, and they don't focus on issue resolution anyway because they are too busy being anti-Conservative/anti-Bush/anti-Republican and anti-American.

Yes, and the real issues won't ever be addressed because of that bushel.:rolleyes:

When do DIMS focus on "real" issues other than to fling pooh?:cool:

Issue: Medical insurance for 50,000,000 uncovered Americans.

How much will the total bill be for Obamaís social dream. Just this issue - nothing else. You have no idea, do you? Not even the slightest concept of what a program like that would cost our country and how that would equate to the 140,000,000 American taxpayers that would have to pick up the tab.

Thatís something to confront the Marxist with - not this utter bullshit. :rolleyes:

Sorry but this SCREAMS at me. It screams that he's either an amatur OR he's got some New World Order anti-American thing going on. Perhaps both.

I do think it's more significant and dark in nature then others do.

It's says a lot. A lot of bad things.

His campaign has generated more than it's share of Faux Paus. Kinda makes on wonder if they were indeed Faux paus. Might even be on purpose to distract from having todeal with the real issues .

I don't think there's anything sinister about it, but it's a glimpse of their amateurish operation. It seems hard to believe an adult didn't check it before he/she said "Looks good, print em"

DUH! Me no that, me ejukated. me no lots.:rolleyes:

I say attack the Marxist wherever and whenever he is vulnerable. There is no reason to claim this cannot be done and try to blame it on a perceived shortage of assets. Those assets are there to get elected, PERIOD. Nothing else matters including what you deem worthy of attack if McCain fails to get elected.

I do think it's amature time with them all. But I also think there are sinister clouds hanging over Obama and there are way too many of these type of things happening with him to ignore.

The upside down flag.
His own 'presidential seal'.
That crowd of 200,000 in Germany at The Wall.
All the self-messianic rhetoric.
'We are the Ones We have been waiting for.'
Etc etc

I see sinister written all over Obama and his campaign. Sorry, I can't help it.

Amature? Yes.
Sinister? I think that as well.

To answer my own question:


Flying the American flag upside down is indeed a type of SOS signal. Section 8a of the United States Flag Code states, "The flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property."

http://www.usa-flag-site.org/forum/american-flag-upside-down-916.html


The left sees America as "in distress" under a treasonous George W. Bush (BFEE). This has been discussed on DU at length and one DUer had an upside down flag as an avatar for that reason.

I believe that this flag position is NOT accidental; it speaks to Democrats who have been feeling that their country has been in distress for the past 7 1/2 years. The travesty is that, somehow, Obama is the answer. But I don't think this was any printer's error.

Lest not forget the large poster of Che Che in an Obama HQ. campaign office. Obama and his Klan are a bunch of amateurs and will get an ass whipping come Nov.

The front side looks like it could be a goof. (obama wearing the shield)

The back side makes it look like it's on purpose. There are very highly paid people in charge of design of everything with obamas name on it, coming from his party. Look at every picture you see of Obama with his head in a gosh darn light halo? That's not an accident, that is well planned out.
