Well clearly he's just displaying his closet atheism.

That sneaky bastard

So hilariously fitting

Stupid Romney. He's gotta be the worst programmer out there. How he could make such a big mistake is highly telling
 
2012-05-30 12:57:19 AM
All that technology and RomneyBot 5000 doesn't have a SPELL-CHECKER?

I predict the Freepers will blame this on a Democrat/Apple conspiracy, because, after all, no Real 'Mer'can makes his money sitting by using an electrified typin' box.

Who cares? Taxbongo misspells things all the time.

Oh wait, that's not a typo. The deficit really is that large. Nice going, Hussein. Thanks for spending my children into finacial ruin.

I can't bring myself to care about typos.

Relatively Obscure: I can't bring myself to care about typos.


The funny thing is it's not just a "typo" - that'd be amusing, but it's not like a misspelled word in a paragraph, or even a sentence. It's a misspelling in what is basically a logo. THAT is what is being mocked.

Damn, our cunning plan to reintegrate the United States into the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms has failed once more.

I cna't either. I'm sure we had some notoriously bad spellers as presidents and presidential candidates before we had all this app shiat and this instantaneous and continuous influx of information to wag our fingers at smugly.

If this is what someone wants to make a story of, so be it. But in my opinion it shows desperation when there really should be none.

No. It's specifically still just a typo. A clumsy one, yes. I still don't care.

Not as funny as the Rmoney shop, but still kinda funny.

Did he get the names of all 57 states right?

Well, he probably outsourced this labor to India, and you know how excellent their education system is
 
2012-05-30 07:26:29 AM
Typo aside, that is a lame farking app.
 
2012-05-30 07:34:06 AM
I still cannot believe that nobody caught this before it was published.

The entire point of the app was to take photos of people and things with their text/logos overlayed. The chances of shenanigans was already high, but this puts that way over the top.

Social media is a harsh mistress, and, as usual, the Republicans are on the wrong side of it.
 
2012-05-30 07:59:03 AM
Please, please, please. There's a huge difference here.

This is Amercia:

This is the continent of America:

This is the US of America:
encrypted-tbn1.google.com

1) Amercia is just the continental US. fark you to Alaska and Hawaii (AKA Kenya).
2) America is the continent.
3) The United States of America includes Alaska and Hawaii and probably some protectorates like Puerto Rico, Guam, et al. (this is for liberals).

If there is any justice, this will become Romney's "57 States."

Coconuts?! In Amercia?! But the coconut's tropical!

Cheer up wingnuts, you'll always have 57 states.

stpauler: Please, please, please. There's a huge difference here.


Who is misunderstanding this and why was that necessary? When people say "America", it's implied to be the U.S., seeing as how the "United States" isn't a name so much as a descriptor.
 
2012-05-30 08:48:27 AM
He's just rebranding as part of the overhaul. Why do you hate capitalism?

Freudian slip: Ameri 'CIA' - you are all being watched!!

I love one of the frames ... highlights the whole 'war on women thing' from the GOP.

"Moms for Mitt" -- all 'barefoot and pregnant' and not daring to speak up!!
 
2012-05-30 08:49:26 AM
Well, at least he doesn't eat dogs, amiright?

/57 STATES!
 
2012-05-30 08:49:29 AM
How many damn people signed off in this thing before it landed in the app store?

Heeeeeey. He forgot Alaska and Hawai'i. Why does the Romney campaign hate Alaska and Hawai'i?

" Slogans like "Believe in America," "Obama Isn't Working," and "I'm a Mom for Mitt"

and I'd like to add, you don't call yourself a "U.S.-er", you call yourself "American" (and not even "North American" either!)

Maybe, but for the fact that Obama made a verbal slip, which each of us are bound to do ever so often, while this was a rollout of a computer program (which would have presumably been proofread before release). It's also fittingly ironic that what Romney wants to do will, in fact, make a much worse Amercia.
 
2012-05-30 08:51:32 AM
Heh, they got Mittrolled.
 
2012-05-30 08:51:35 AM
He's selling off the individual letters in "A-m-e-r" and outsourcing the CIA to China.

LoneWolf343: If there is any justice, this will become Romney's "57 States."


A simple mistake that will be beaten into the ground because the opposite sides' canidate barely spoke English good?

AMERCIA


Not a typo at all....just a forewarning of things to come.
 
2012-05-30 08:53:21 AM
That's how they spell it in Mitt's home country of Mexico.
 
2012-05-30 08:53:52 AM
Was he wearing a flag pin on his lapel when this mistake was made? Because that wipes the whole thing out. Flag pins are like the erasers for politico mistakes.
 
2012-05-30 08:54:48 AM
Yay, version 1 is still available... Time to take pictures of the campus young republicans.

Romney works hard supporting his lifestyle. How dare you say he's unemployed.
 
2012-05-30 08:57:37 AM
I think a better question is why the fark does Romney even have an iPhone app? This is why i hate modern social media and technologies... its a bunch of clueless shiatbrains misusing the technology for no logical purpose, and brings down the overall quality of things like the Apple store.

The worst part is before this typo, no one would have cared about Romneys app. Now everyone and their mother is going to download it to see the typo, which will shoot the app up through the popularity lists, which creates a snowball effect and makes even more people download it. Goddamnit so much.
