Symbols of Authority

As has been noted Obama seems to be breaking the rules again with his .gov registered Change website. Despite the fact that there's no such thing as the "Office of the President Elect" Obama's colossal ego has created one. He seems to be obsessed with self-aggrandizement and these symbols of authority- the fake seal, the Greek Temple, heck, even the choice of location for his acceptance speech during the convention. There was even his seat on his campaign jet and reporters having to remind his staff that, way before the election, he wasn't yet in the Oval Office.

And now, as well as the imaginary office and unofficial .gov website, he's even giving press conferences with a pretend office placard.

Am I the only one who finds it a little juvenile and quite a bit narcissistic of him to do all this stuff?
