Seal of Disapproval
Recently, Sen. Barack Obama's campaign released a new version of the presidential seal with some notable changes.
For one, the seal is all blue. It says Vero Possumus, the closest Latin translation to 'Yes We Can," in place of the Latin phrase that appears on the presidential seal and the dollar bill, E Pluribus Unum, or "Out of Many, One." And instead of the words "Seal of the President of the United States" circling the eagle, it says "Obama for America" and the campaign website.
The change in design is the focal point of a new humorous attack ad unveiled by Sen. John McCain's campaign. The ad, called Seal, uses Obama's campaign theme of change to poke fun at the fact that Obama's campaign altered an historic symbol.
The ad then asks, with light, patriotic sounding flute music in the background, whether Obama might change the Statue of Liberty or $100 bill as well.
Here's the script:
"As Barack Obama talks about change, let's take a look at what he's changed so far. He's changed the presidential seal.
What will he change next? The Statue of Liberty? Mount Rushmore? The Hundred Dollar Bill? For Barack Obama, it's change you can make in photoshop."
