I never said that I decided the name sign. I have seen this name sign used by many. Even an ASL logo created by Brian Milburn, Randy Jackson and Sheena Stuart wasn't made by me. Here are vlogs with the name sign for President Obama that preceded my video assignment:
"Cry for Peace" - December 01, 2008
SignName for Obama? - November 08, 2008
You neutral? - November 02, 200
Obama Rally - February 05, 2008
(if you have more vlogs of various name signs for Obama, feel free to add it by posting a comment.)
Tell me-- how could I invent a name sign that was ALREADY invented by the Deaf communities that I frequent?
All controversial issues aside-- why don't YOU make an open letter to President Obama and TELL him who you represent and what does that group decide. Don't let me stop you-- go ahead and make your own open-letter in ASL.
After all, he is OUR president.
