First of all, they're hideous.

Secondly, where's the trademark logo?


Do you think it's possible this company's doing this just to get a little publicity for itself?

1. Based on how Obama runs his campaign, I doubt he'd let this happen.

2. Those don't look official.
Anyone could go on makestickers.com and create them.

3. I hope so, but maybe they are real. I mean, maybe they are red and blue to show the
unity thing Obama is always talking about.

8. He doesn't tell his staffers, but he lets some company spill the beans?
No way.

These aren't real.

13. well, as I said in another thread about this that if there was a company charged with this
job they would have had to sign a nondisclosure agreement.

9. They're red, white, and blue -- pretty typical color scheme for political signage.

4. In all of Obama's merchandise...
...there is a " ' " before 08.

There isn't one on the sticker.

The serifs look different than Obama's official font.

I don't think it's the exact font. It's similar, but not exact.

that identifies its official campaign material.

7. Those can't be official....
Obama's had a "theme" the entire process...that ain't it.

10. It certainly doesn't look like it's the Obama "brand" --
Edited on Fri Aug-22-08 05:25 PM by gateley
Some people here have made up their own, which I think look much more plausible. This, for example:

11. Looks like a bad retread of some old Republican sticker
Though I can't really remember which one. No way in Hell that's an official Obama sticker though.

20. Well, he IS a Republican retread. Or retard, as the case maybe

12. He IS Mr. Middle America and boring as an old shoe which, I guess, is seen
as a positive by campaign people in that there won't be any bombshells along the way.

14. They pre-print two different Superbowl winner t-shirts, too.
It's called getting ahead of the competition. They're probably printing Obama/Biden and Obama/Clinton stickers too.

15. I think the printer is just playing a prank.
The sticker doesn't look like the Obama style and the idea that the campaign would let the cat out of the bag like this seems far-fetched.

19. It's like the shirts that say the Patriots won last year's Super Bowl
The printers are going to kick out the top 2-3 likely choices on spec. Once the announcement is made, the printers will try to sell the accurate stock ASAP to capitalize on the excitement.

22. Hideous is an apt descriptor
Shiteous is even better.

Come on, kids. There is no way in hell this crap is official. Obama has REAL designers.

23. first of all, they're hideous..
quite frankly, I don't believe I've seen a Dem candidate's logo that wasn't hideous. Memo to dems: use a sans serif font for crap's sake!

You can see that on their FEC reports.

26. I LIVE IN THE CITY WHERE THE OBAMA STORE MERCHANDISE IS PRINTED
Its in Greenville,Ohio-a small rural town of about15,000. This company printing those stickers is probably a knock off because Obama gave this company, Tigereye Design an exclusive 13 million dollar contract.

27. Phony. And *hopefully* Obama's campaign...
Would know better than to put Obama's name on a COMMIE RED background. Geez, talk about your basic dunce-cap psychological mistakes.

These are as phony as Republican fundraiser for charity.

28. Do you think it's possible the pic was (badly) Photoshopped?
In particular, check out the raggedy right edge of the final 'A' in Obama. :tinfoilhat:
