PICTURE: Obama Campaign Redesigns American Flag

President Obama’s re-election campaign has re-designed the American flag ... and it's already making waves.

A new campaign poster wipes out all 50 stars on the flag, replacing them with Obama’s logo. The campaign is putting the flag up for sale, hoping people will dole out $35 for their own copy.

Reaction has been streaming in, including that of Fox News Radio's Todd Starnes, whose Tweets haven't concealed his own feelings on the poster:

In a recent Fox News Radio article, Starnes discussed the story, as well as what his listeners have had to say in response:

The Obama campaign is now selling copies of an American flag painting that replaces the 50 stars in a blue field with the president’s campaign logo. Critics are calling the artwork creepy and unAmerican...

...Reaction on social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook has been overwhelmingly negative.

“This is so offensive,” one reader wrote. “I don’t know why I’m shocked, but I am. This stoops to new lows.”
Another reader offered this assessment: “Once again, very shameful. This is a disgrace.

“And just what was wrong with the flag with the stars and stripes?” a Facebook reader wondered. “Why must Obama create his own flag?”

Check out what others are Tweeting on the topic, including the president's staff:
