Skip to comments.Team Romney calls out Obama for misspelling 'Ohio' at campaign stop
Posted on 08/22/2012 3:16:43 PM PDT by therightliveswithus
President Obama needed a do-over to spell Ohio correctly on the campus of Ohio State University this week.
Although Obama and several students at a campaign stop Tuesday morning at Sloopys Diner on the campus of OSU tweeted out photos of the president correctly posing as the I in Ohio, another student supplied a photo of a spelling mishap to Mitt Romneys campaign.
The photo, tweeted by Romneys Ohio communications director, Christopher Maloney, shows Obama and three students all a little confused about how to spell the states name, with Obama holding his hands up in what seems to be an H and as the third letter.
A word of advice to @BarackObama: It's O-H-I-O that has 18 electoral votes, not 'O-I-H-O, Maloney tweeted.

How about calling him out on his school records or, I don’t know, a legit birth certificate?
A, O, WAY TO GO O-IHO.
Don’t know what is going on but one thing is for sure. I’m glad they are not my kids.
“Oh why, oh why, oh why oh...did I ever let this picture leave Ohio.” ~ President Pimp
Team Romney would be well advised to avoid the purse fights. Land some real punches against Obama on his anti-capitalism, anti-American Marxism. How about Obama’s war on the free market economy? How about Obama’s oath to bankrupt coal, oil and gas? Let’s get with the program, McLame!!

“Tin soldiers and Barack’s drumming...”
Karma’s a bitch.
Knucklehead on the left needs some personal hygiene and fashion training. (Pus gut exposed).
Good thing he’s not one of those bitter clingers.
If Romney pays attention to stuff like this he will lose the election.
So obozo did a typo. It isn’t like he is posting on FR (we all know the Grammar Police here are armed and always on the lookout).
All humor aside we don’t need silly things like this to show he is an idiot. We have substantive stuff that prove it.
He stole my campaign phrase, Oh I Hate Obama.
We really have sunk into the playground if these are the issues in this election.
Trillion dollar deficits and heading the way of Greece and all the Romney campaign can think of is that somebody spelled something wrong.
Jeez, those Romney people are so stupid that they don’t know that Oiho was the 56th state and Floriduh was the 57th. /sarc
It wasn't Romney. It was some Ohio campaign communications guy. I remember when Obama was first elected hearing that comedians weren't going to be able to make fun of him. When you got a shot take it. Obama's "You didn't build that" was said to be a distraction, but its the gift that keeps on giving.
Such a difficult word for the students and president.
They should just rename the state, O.
Then that old joke “What’s high in the middle and round at both ends?” wouldn’t work anymore.
Ohio State`s fight song is “Hang on Sloopy” by the McCoys. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5oPiBSktp6M Should we change it to “Hang on Stoopy”?
once worked with a woman who insisted there was both an Ar-kan- saw and an Ar-KAN-sus
It ain’t ur kansas, it’s ar kansas!
In defense of Obama and his “OIHO team”:
1. Obama is left handed and a lib to boot. Give him some slack.
2. If they were looking in a mirror it was spelled correctly. How do we know that they weren’t looking in a mirror?
3. From Obama’s perspective it was spelled correctly Left To Right. Put yourself in his shoes (if you can stand it) and you will see what I mean.
I’m surprised someone from the Obama campaign didn’t say the picture was flipped horizontally.
Well, there you have it; from his point of view, he’s correct. :)
Gee, doesn’t TOTUS have Spell-Check?
Romney needs to mention 57 states , Austrian is a language etc and lets put this crap of he’s smart to bed once and for all.
Make fun of his telepromter and get his cage rattled because we all know bozo the clown does not take it lightly , no , infact he will lose it when one makes fun of him.
Course the late shows wll not cover any of his gaffs or lack of knowledge
Ridicule is a powerful weapon.
And, you are correct. Running a campaign of “gotcha!” is a loser.
Brain dead in O-hi-o.
