Obama: American Flag “Old Glory” Remains on his plane…A Truth!

Update: Thank You Penny! Now this makes me a ‘Happy Camper’!
“The North American flag/logo on the forward portion of the fuselage was removed and the one on the tail was replaced with the Obama campaign logo, while traditional depictions of the U.S. flag adjacent to the plane’s registration numbers remain…

  1. The American Flag he removed was the standard design that that goes on all North American Airlines planes. When he won the nomination he had the plane redesigned to reflect his campaign, just like John McCain. Like most Presidential candidates, Obama’s campaign logo design does not include an American flag. For the record, John McCain’s campaign plane doesn’t have an American Flag on it, either.

    This is one of the silliest anti-Obama rumors I’ve come across yet. I guess if you’re desperate enough to find a reason to dislike Obama, you can convince yourself to believe anything.

  2. Thank you for your comment Joe

    “…American Flag he removed…standard…”
    Okay, so you are saying that the standard American Flag on all North American planes was removed.

    “…to reflect his campaign, just like John McCain… Obama’s campaign logo design does not include an American flag. For the record, John McCain’s campaign plane doesn’t have an American Flag on it, either…”
    Okay, so you are saying that McCain also removed the standard American Flag…

    “…Obama rumors…”
    Okay, seems I asked if this was truth, and as of right now, I still have no verified resources to form an accurate conclusion…from what you stated, there was a standard American Flag removed. And according to you, this has been done by Obama, McCain, and previous presidents.

    “…I’ve come across yet. I guess if you’re desperate enough to find a reason to dislike Obama, you can convince yourself to believe anything.”

    At this point in time, I am not convinced of anything. I am doing what every American should be doing…I am trying to find the truth. And it seems to me that it matters not what party or candidate, or previous presidents; they have no business taking the “standard” American Flag off a plane that belongs to the American Taxpayer’s – for the sake of politics.

  3. Hey karen! Awesome job on the wordpress site! How do you like it?

  4. Hi Josh, I am liking it just fine…thanks for the heads-up!

    I think you misunderstood me slightly. The airline that charters Obama’s plane to him (he doesn’t own that plane) is called “North American”. The standard design that North American puts on all it’s plance includes two American Flags. That particular design is trademarked by North American. When Obama had the plane repainted to make it his campaign plane, he got rid of the trademark nNorth American design and put his own logos there, which do not contain an American Flag.

    I haven’t claimed that McCain removed or painted over a flag on his plane. I don’t know who he chartered his plane from or whether it had a flag on thre at any point. All I’ve said is that McCain’s plane, which bears his campaign logos, doesn’t have a flag, either. Hopefully you aren’t implying that it is wrong for a candidate to replace another brand’s logo with his own if the old one happened to include an American Flag someplace on it.

    Here is an article with the complete story, including sources for all of the information and also photos of Obama’s plane before and after it was painted, and of McCain’s plane as well:

    Note – I had to hit refersh a couple of times to get the photos to load.

  6. Mr. Obama does seem to have a problem with the American flag.

    And McCain’s plane does have an American flag near the tail section. See: http://www.blogsforjohnmccain.com/obama-replaces-us-flag-campaign-plane-enormous-obama-o-pictures

    Check this out for details of the O-Force One, including his special chair labeled “Obama 08 – President.”

    Obama also made “adjustments” to the Presidential Seal by putting Obama for America at the top and replacing the Latin phrase “E Pluribus Unum,” which translates to “Out of many, one,” to “Vero Possumus.” translating as “Truly, we are able” — a rough translation of the Obama campaign slogan, “Yes we can.” You just can’t make this stuff up.

  7. I should have said to scroll down to the comment section of that link to see a picture of the seal on McCain’s plane.

  8. Thank you Joe!! 🙂

    And thank you BellauO! 🙂

  9. You know I just returned here to let you know that I did find a photo of McCain’s plane that shows there is a flag there. Here’s where I saw it:

    EVERYONE please see this website that shows that the refurbished Obama plane has a U.S. flag. It was removed from the tail and put on the side of the plane. Check your facts, folks, before posted such crap.

  11. A great reason not to vote for a president…I heard from a reputable source that he atually removed the old tail fin, drug it on the ground, burned it, then had his wife spit on it and use it for target practice for her militia group…the nerve!

  12. Your blog is interesting!

    Keep up the good work!

  13. interesting opinion…
