Romney's Misspelled America


Here's the story from AFP:
White House hopeful Mitt Romney has meticulously spelled out his vision for a better America while on the campaign trail this year. But in his new mobile app? Not so much.
The "With Mitt" application for the iPhone allows users to express support for the recently anointed Republican flagbearer by personalizing a photo with an overlaid Romney slogan. Trouble is, one of the slogans had a howler of a spelling mistake: "A Better Amercia."
Members of the proofreading public recently made the discovery and it went viral on Twitter late Tuesday, with people mockingly tweeting photos showing the "Amercia" message.

RT @MittRomney I apologize for "Amercia" misspelling. The staff member who did it was foreign and has now self-deported.

Look on the bright side, Mitt Romney. Sure, your iPhone app spelled "America" wrong, but now you get to fire people!!!

Could the "America" typo on Romney's phone app actually win him support from the huge bloc of spelling-challenged Americans?
~ Howard Kurtz on Twitter

Mitt Romney's new campaign phone app misspells "America" as "Amercias" Maybe that is how Trump told him to spell it?!

Mitt Romney iPhone app misspells ‘America’...Romney then announces to cross every "i" and dot every "t" from now on.

Thanks App Store, but I'm never updating my "With Mitt" app.
