Perhaps They Should Have Tested More - Mitt Romney Campaign


Mitt Romney is the presumptive Republican nominee for President of The United States of America. His campaign recently released a new iPhone app, which misspelled a rather significant word. copyrightjoestrazzere

  • One of the skins on the app says "A Better Amercia"
  • “We thought this would be a fun, easy way to showcase support,” said Romney's digital director Zac Moffatt
  • The Romney campaign has since submitted a corrected version of the app to Apple
  • Receiving lots of laughs on twitter
  • The New York Times wrote: "The typo is unlikely to become a major issue in Mr. Romney's efforts to unseat President Obama. But it is an unfortunate reminder that even the tiniest mistakes are magnified in an era when political opposition is crowdsourced globally. It's also a reminder to double-check your work."

Perhaps someone (anyone) in the Romney campaign should have tested more? It's the Amercian way!

  1. Not very aware of US politics, but he seems influenced by "CIA"

  2. Wow and right on the skin too. Really sad with so many opportunities to check the work. I can't even type in a box like this without some indicator of a misspelling.

  3. Mittstakes happen...

  4. I think this is what he plans on calling it after he breaks it apart and sells off the pieces. :)
