I was born here, raised my family here, taught in its schools and served in its military; only to find out we’ve all been misspelling its name?
And we all have the Republican Tea Party (GOTP) presidential candidate Willard Mitt Romney to thank for pointing this out to us; it seems Willard’s actually running for President of the United States of “Amercia.”
In what can only be described as a major political faux paw of epic embarrassing proportions, Willard’s campaign misspelled the word “America” on its new “With Mitt” iPhone app.
The app has a transparent skin allowing users to take a photograph and superimpose the slogan “A better Amercia” on the image.
According to the Associated Press (AP) the twitter world’s full of comments on the mistake, “Whew, I hear Mitt’s updating that misspelled Amercia on his app. He’s just going with Untied States now,” read one tweet.
“Does Mitt Romney believe that Obama was born in Keyna,” another tweeter jabbed.
The “A better Amercia” skin is just one of 14 on the user-friendly app. Most of them include the phrase “I’m With Mitt” at the bottom.
“We thought this would be a fun, easy way to showcase support,” Romney’s digital director Zac Moffatt told Mashable.com when asked about the launch of the app.
Congrats Zac, people are definitely having fun with this app; two words, “spell check”.
