Obama Defaced American Flag Removed From Campaign Website

We no longer have to worry about President Obama selling a defaced American flag because the controversial depiction of the Stars and Stripes has been removed from his campaign website. The screen grab from the BarackObama.com website (pictured above) is now what you get when you try to go to the page that previously sold the flag as mentioned on this post. The flag in question which is pictured below was up for sale on the Obama campaign website last week and was supposed to sell 250 copies, but it has since been removed.

As you can see, the Obama campaign thought nothing of putting the president's campaign logo on a depiction of the American flag which to many patriots smacks of self absorbment on the president's part. Supposedly, a campaign aid has said that the controversial flag has sold out (since it was a limited edition of 250) and has been automatically removed from the website.

However, when doing a search for the artist that designed the flag and the terms "obama" and "flag" actual term "Ross Bruggink obama flag" below is a screen shot of the Google results as of the publishing of this post:

As you can see, the results show that the flag is still listed number one in the Google search results for the term above, it just isn't for sale any longer on the campaigns website.

So the big question is, why was it removed? Was it because it really sold out, or it is because there was too much controversy surrounding it? Leave your comments and thoughts below.
