I’m probably behind the learning curve on this one, but my friend Heyman, posted a link to a compelling video about political iconography and branding. Watching it, I was stunned and appalled by the implications of some of the imagery that BO uses, particularly this image:
America’s icons and symbols–the eagle, the flag, the motto–are “fading” away, falling by the wayside, relegated to the past. The only thing not fading, the only thing that is prominent, substantive, permanent, is the “O.” No accident there, right?
Here’s the vid, it’s worth the time to watch:
To put it mildly, BO’s narcissism, this administration’s hubris, is a bit of a problem, no?
And what do we think of his “fundamentally transforming” our country?
