Romney app's spelling error

(CNN) – Mitt Romney's campaign iPhone app rolled out with a glitch.

The lead phrase on the app, "A Better America," was misspelled as "A Better Amercia," an error that was widely tweeted Tuesday night.

Team Romney has since submitted a correction to Apple, which will make the update, according to a campaign official.

    This error comes from the campaign of the presidential candidate who wants to eliminate the Department of Education.

    Romney said "why is Obama attacking me, I am "Amercia", I love this country". I don't question that Romney doesn't love this country, but does he love money more. Furthermore, not one of Romney's five(5) beloved sons have offered their services to our U.S. Military while others daughters and sons have died doing so. Is Romney fit to be the Commander in Chief of your children when he has five(5) sons who don't serve, I have a problem with that.

    What can you say about that? Romney obviously has a problem a hiring competent staff to hire competent staff. Maybe he'll resurrect Dan Quale for his VP pick.

    No, no, no - that's the French spelling of America. You know what they say, how you run your campaign is how your administration would be.

    Who misspelled that word? We wanna know.
    Here's the joke: If there is such country named "Amercia" and the shape of its land is like mainland US, I'd take it into consideration.

    Tsk, tsk, tsk!
    A campaign being run on errors, fabrications, outright re-creations of the truth, special treatment (Hands Off Romney), tons of money from undisclosed sources, secret meetings, right-wing pledges and no concern for spelling correctly the name of the intended victim...AMERCIA.
