Obama Economic Stimulus Tie

While on Capitol Hill Wednesday, Barack Obama made a stop with congressional Representatives to push his economic stimulus plan. His choice of a solid, shiny, and red tie is meant to convey the urgency of the brutal economic storm that the United States will face if Congress doesn’t act quicker than the Cookie Monster going after the last Oreo on a desert island. This is the second time President Obama has worn a solid red tie since taking office (he wore an additional patterned red tie for his inauguration). We expect that red will (perhaps unsurprisingly) be the color of urgency for this term, which is the first area where the Obama has chosen to follow the lead of the previous administration. Analysts expect the Department of Homeland Security to release an official Obama Executive Tie Threat Advisory Indicator soon.
