Say what?

Remember that huge faux presidential seal that Obama used once, then had to stow away because it turned out that it is ILLEGAL for anyone but POTUS to use the seal and/or its icons?

He's at it again! This time it is a nice, shiny blue rectangle proclaiming "Office of the President-Elect". No problem, right? Wrong!

According to FOXNews, "Under the Constitution, there is no such thing as the Office of the President-elect. Technically, Obama will not even become the president-elect until the Electoral College convenes after the second Wednesday in December and elects him based on the results of the Nov. 4 general election, as stated in the Constitution."

So Mr. Obama, since he is no longer a senator and not yet president elect, has once again invented an honor to bestow upon himself, sealed with a fancy sign and an official sounding title.

Which reminds me - he also has a website, www.change.gov. My understanding is that.gov websites were only for official U.S. government use. How does he get one for his own personal gratification?

Remember, this is also the man who had "president" stenciled on his seat on the campaign plane. Who had the U.S. flag painted over and replaced with his own campaign logo. The troubling signs of narcicissm continue to manifest and I predict we will see many more inflated trappings of office, creation of unprecedented ways to honor himself, and demands for adulation and praise that exceed his performance. But then, he's been showered with all of that this past year...
