Obama Brand

Parents at several Missouri schools are complaining about notebooks and pencils with designs similar to the logos from President Barack Obama's campaign, reports Fox News. Now school supply vendors are scrambling, trying to recall the controversial items.

The design some parents are steamed over includes a picture of pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters. Above and below the picture is the phrase: "CHANGE ... WE CAN BELIEVE IN."

Below the words is a likeness of the round logo used by the Obama campaign, in which the top half is white and blue and the bottom is white and red.

According to Fox News, two families at one Missouri school have complained about the design, and Principal Mary Sue Gibson said she planned to complain to the supply company.

Personally these supplies would make you mad, but then again... I would be a bit weirded out if they were handing out notebooks with the big "W" logo on it (Bush). They are SUPPOSED to be out presidents, not "products".
