Sealed with a diss? WH Twitter page features ‘fallen eagle’ in upside down view of presidential seal; Corrected

Keen eyes like those at The Jawa Report have noticed this “fallen eagle” being displayed on the official White House Twitter page:

White House Twitter feed

The photo featured on the page appears to be of is the Oval Office ceiling:

Editor’s note: The full background photo does not appear on some browser settings. The photo shows President Obama sitting at his desk with a view of the oval office ceiling, in which the presidential seal would appear upside down from the photographer’s perspective. Thanks to our readers for bringing this to our attention.

Here is a screenshot of the full background photo on the White House Twitter feed.

But would it have been so difficult for the White House tweeters to flip the seal right-side-up?

Who thought an upside-down eagle was a good idea?

    It obviously means the President is in distress.

      No, HE’S in office, that’s why WE’RE in distress.

        The Office is in distress. There’s a jackass occupying it. It’s calling out for help.

    I’m all for legit criticism of the (P)resident, but this is silly. It’s a picture of the Oval Office, facing the windows. The Eagle’s head happens to be on that side of the room. To make the eagle “right side up” would be a camera view of the other side of the room. Shall we concentrate on Benghazi, the IRS, Obamacare, etc? Hmmm?

    • Robert R Kircher Jr.

      Amen Jeff, I posted the same comment on
      the Facebook Page. This kind of stuff just doesn’t help the cause any…
      If feeds the progressive mantra that conservatives are
      paranoid conspiracy theorists .

    • Dwayne Jackson

      If your explanation held water then the words United States would not be right side up.

      • Robert R Kircher Jr.

        Dwayne, I’ve seen this seal with my own eyes, United States is NOT upside down. Do yourself a favor and do a Google search on Presidential Seal Oval Office Ceiling and see for yourself. Its simply the angle in which the photograph was taken.

        If there’s any conspiracy here its how this White House and progressive put out this type of bate for the Rightwingnuts to jump on so they can say all of us conservatives are rightwingnuts.

      • ImTheNana

        Oh, for cryin’ out loud. Search the image, please. The eagle is encircled with “Seal of the President of the United States”, meaning the last words are at the bottom of the seal, upside down when the seal is right side up, and right side up when the perspective is upside down, as it is when the picture is taken facing the President’s desk, no matter who is President, including Obummer.

    • nc

      Taken by itself, sure. But given the absolute mess the WH is in (Benghazi, IRS, Obamacare, etc), wouldn’t you expect them to be extra careful these days?

    • Ty in TX

      Jeff, I accept your explanation about the placement of the eagle in relation to the windows of the Office, sounds perfectly reasonable. However, we’ve grown up seeing that seal and eagle a certain way. How hard would it have been for whoever set up this page stop for a moment and say “That’s upside down, need to fix that.” And I don’t see this as criticism so much as it is outright mockery.They did it for years to Bush for every mispronounced word, every bit of clunky speech. Now it’s our turn. Let’s have some fun poking at “The Smartest Man in the Room.”

      • Jim Wafwot

        I’m all for criticizing the Administration on legit issues… but what if someone DID Photoshop the image and turned the Seal so it appeared right-side up. How long would it take someone to point out that someone “doctored” the photo and Twitchy posted an article about it? Mock Him for his big ear, dependance on teleprompter, his wife’s big butt, his constant pointing, and um, uh, uh, um, stammering. But the perspective of a photo seems silly and, well, something liberals would do.

    • Jim Wafwot

      C’mon. I’m with Jeff on this one. Let’s not pick fly crap from the pepper. From the behind the presidential desk, that seal is perfectly right-side up. The perspective of the seal from the location of the photographer (in front of the desk) makes the seal appear upside down. The text — “SEAL OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES” — circles the seal starting and ending beneath the Eagle… so some text is right-side up, some is upside down.

    • Allan Hamilton

      Unfortunately Jeff, you are dead wrong about the eagle graphic. What is shown is a fixed icon on the background…there isn’t any “mirror” view or “view from the other side of the office” When one scrolls down, the eagle remains static in the background. That means it was placed there, in that manner, by someone that knows exactly what they did. For what reason, I don’t know, but it’s a legitimate argument. Perhaps YOU won’t make that argument so go back to your sandbox and let the adults handle this one…

    That means the administration is talking out their ass.

    • MyrmidoNOT

      We kinda/sorta KNEW that, already…

    Twerps!

    Just ‘like’ this administration; it is “off, the rail(s)”… 😉

  • Mrytle Johnson

    That’s our fed govt at work, they can’t even stamp something correctly, duh.

  • OLLPOH

    Would Some One Answer This Question For Us?
    Why would Obama write this in his autobiography book “Dreams From My Father?
    Obama on White Folks Greed…
    Taken from his book and in his own words: “Dreams From My Father” page 158 of 235 PDF Form:

    “It is this world, a world where cruise ships throw away more food in a day
    than most residents of Port-au-Prince see in a year,
    where white folks’ greed runs a world in need,
    apartheid in one hemisphere, apathy in another hemisphere…
    That’s the world! On which hope sits!”

    • TomJB

      Yep, they throw away that food because if they gave it to the starving people of Port-au-Prince and someone got sick, they would sue the cruise line for millions. For that, we can thank ambulance chasers like John Edwards. Let no good deed go unpunished…

  • Junk Debris

    View from the desk… one most uneducated twerps could never begin to fathom.

  • forgetyoutooo

    I’m only surprised Obama doesn’t have his own picture on it.

    • Turd Burglestein

      Are you suggesting his head should be coming out of the eagle’s ass? What a splendid idea!!!

      • grayjohn

        lol :)

  • BobHTX

    If you look at the whole picture you’ll see the Seal is on the ceiling above the President’s desk.
    Nothing here.
    Faux rage.

  • JustLikeAnimals

    The country is in distress. This so-call president, his ilk, and their ruinous policies are wrecking this country’s economy, it’s security at home and abroad, and the ability of freedom-loving Americans to secure their children’s futures.

    The White House should begin flying the US Flag upside down until this ass-clown leaves office, which hopefully won’t be too much longer now.

  • Squirrel!

    Symbolism. I bet NOT a mistake.

  • Oak Tree Lady

    If the seal was right-side up, the president would be hanging from the ceiling. They should have done a better job at choosing photos, but they can always PhotoShop it and turn it ’round. On second thought, maybe not.

  • snowball headed for hell

    I checked out their official and yes it is upside down. Is that symbolism for distress or something? Bengazi, IRS, ect?

  • Robert R Kircher Jr.

    Please review these images of the seal on the Oval Office ceiling. You will see that this image is NOT some sinister message and is indeed correctly oriented based on the perspective of the photo. If you go to the WH twitter page and look at the full picture, it is clear. To think otherwise just feeds the progressive mantra that conservatives are rightwingnuts.

  • Serafinos

    It’s the SEAL on the CEILING of the OVAL OFFICE.
    Although it was still placed upside down on the page. NO DOUBT

  • pinkelephant22

    To put “United States” right-side up, the eagle has to be upside down. The little liberal pumpkin head intern who posted it probably didn’t even know it was an eagle

  • dimokkkrats still own blacks

    It looks like the eagle is crash landing after taking a big ole brown stanky shiite.

  • CitizenEgg

    The backgrounds at the WH are providing some key background this week. White washing and our national symbol displayed as a warning. Dominos are falling and who knows what we HAVEN’T found out about yet?

  • Oak Tree Lady

    The WH uses 13 year olds for their Photoshopping.

  • http://www.talonspoint.wordpress.com/ Talon

    I tweeted this as well but in reality its a wide angle view of the Oval Office which makes the eagle appear upside down
