On Oct. 5, 2010, as Obama was addressing Fortune magazine’s 2010 Most Powerful Women Summit at the Andrew Mellon Auditorium in Washington, D.C., his speech was interrupted when the presidential seal on the front of the lectern clattered to the floor.
On June 30, 2011, it happened again.
David Gambacorta of The (Philadelphia) Inquirer reports that last Thursday, June 30, 2011, a magnetic presidential seal affixed to the side of Obama’s limousine flew off and whipped by motorists in the eastbound lanes of I-76.
Obama was in Philadelphia on a fundraising visit. Members of his motorcade saw the seal fall from his limo as it traveled on the expressway. A handful of law-enforcement officials tried searching for the seal in the darkness on Thursday to no avail.
The next day, a veteran Philadelphia police officer found the seal on the side of the highway. It is on its way back to Washington, D.C.
Hey, Obama. The Big Guy is tryin’ to tell you something but yo ain’t listenin’! Here’s another hint!
