Did the egotistical President finally accept a serving of humble pie?

After taking a beating on conservative blogs last week for redesigning the American flag by replacing the stars with an ‘O’ symbol, the Obama campaign has quietly removed the product.

But fear not Obamabots. Lest you think your campaign has lost their touch, they still managed to get caught in a blatant lie as to why the flag disappeared.  They’ve still got it.

Buzzfeed reports:

A page where the flag was now returns as error page. A cached version of the website still shows the product but returns a error page when attempting to add the item to the cart. An Obama campaign aide says the item quickly sold out and that sold out items are automatically removed. However, a similar item to the flag print that was also sold out was not automatically removed and appears on the site with “out of stock” below it.

It’s not just the narcissism involved in redesigning the American flag with your own logo, or the possible flag code violation, it’s the timing of the O flag’s release.

As Gateway Pundit points out, the flag design couldn’t have come at a worse time.

If the image looks familiar it could be because the red stripes resemble the bloody Benghazi hand prints.  The bloodstained walls at the US consulate revealed that the US  officials were dragged to their death by peaceful protesters  terrorists.

Here’s your visual aid…

The point being drawn – the similarity of the images – is a graphic criticism of the Obama campaign’s indulgence in the Obama cult of personality, while the Obama administration neglects to provide adequate security for our diplomatic personnel currently in danger as the Arab Spring turns to a Muslim Brotherhood radical Fall.

Also, we’ll call BS on the statement that the flag has sold out.  Nobody in their right mind is even sporting the Obama bumper stickers this go-around, due to embarrassment.  It’s fairly certain they’re not going to be showing off their disrespectful Obama flag with pride.
