Think about what those Obama haters would have done with a picture of the monogram, and Obama placed directly beneith it. They would say that he chose deliberatley to stand benieth something like that to point to himself.
The fact that he covered it up shows he's aware that some people really do see him as a Messianic figure, and also, that his enemies are begining to use that against him
Sounds to me like it wasnt a jab at Christians so much as a request for a plain background...and certainly NOT a nice little symbol of Christ RIGHT above the Presidential head
