    OK, no joke intended, don't you think the letters on the President's seal look crooked? Especially the ES in President. Do a search on Google and you can see that President Bush's seal did not look like this. What's up?

      Are you so blinded by this man that you can not see that the letters are jumbled on his seal? It is just an observation. Funny how you Liberals will defend everything even those things that are obviously wrong.

    Blind? Jay, I can't claim that when it comes to YOU and your remarks about PRES OBAMA, his politics or his personals! That's your problem with me. You know I read between YOUR lines. You know you can't just throw out any old thing and it smooth sails on by me! You wish I was blinded by the tricks of lies, fearmongering, and propaganda! The PRESIDENTIAL SEAL? Jay, that seal, his hair, ears, wifes' personals, dates, dog, etc, won't net ONE job, fix the economy, nor will it grow anymore support for PRES OBAMA.

    There have been two or three times that I've succomed to your seemingly better understanding of an issue, and have apologized to you; I've admitted that I may have been wrong on some subject, and that I truly thought that I was right, or had heard the point I was making from the media! I have no problem saying I'm wrong when I'm wrong. You seem to. I believe you'd rather see through glasses of anti-semetism, negativity, disrespectability, un-orthodoxism, judgement, and when all else fails sarcasm and envy.

      The seal is different than President Bush's. The letters look crooked Liz. Maybe it was broken when it fell off. Remember that? Won't net one job? Well tell that to the guy that is in charge of fixing broken presidential seals. Ask them why they think Barry cut this important job from the government. Was there not enough money in the $1,000,000,000,000 stimulus spending? I fail to see why discussing this would cause you such grief. Calling me anti-semitic is just bazaar.

    You should've addressed that observation and question to your conservative constituents, who push for and claim to want smaller government! Oh yeah; that's only until something major happens! Then it's 'What is the government gonna do'? 'What is 'Barry' gonna do'? 'When is he gonna say something'? Jay, PRES OBAMA is in the business of trying to downsize the unemployment rolls, not add to them! Check with PALIN, BOEHNER, McCONNELL, BACHMAN and them about the guys' job who fixes broken PRESIDENTIAL SEALS!
