Skip to comments.Give ‘piece’ a chance: White House makes Twitter typo, sparks Obamacare photo meme
Posted on 12/13/2013 5:51:39 AM PST by Beave Meister
President Obama is back on the offensive when it comes to promoting the Affordable Care Act. But White House aides may want to hit the spell-checker next time before they get carried away promoting the presidents message.
On Thursday, the White House tweeted a picture of Obama holding a sign with the Twitter hashtag #GetCovered Because. The message on the presidents sign read: Nobody should go broke just because they get sick.
The photo immediately launched a small social media tidal wave, with people creating their own GetCovered images.
But the White House may have unintentionally created one of the more humorous signs. Shortly after imploring the accounts four million-plus followers to get covered because its the smart thing to do, the White House posted another image:
Of course, thats piece, as in a piece of cake. Not the kind of peace John Lennon urged people around the world to give a chance.
As far as typos go, it might not be quite as precious as this 2012 pubic affairs spelling mistake from the University of Texas, but you cant get much more high-profile than the White House ― and its 4.4 million Twitter followers.
Naturally, the Internet was quick to pounce:

Good thread, but I suggest you re-post it with the /humor tag if not intentional; i.e., without the error.
Nobody should go broke if they're healthy and forced to pay for obamacare if they can't afford it either.
Under Obamacare, you get to go broke before you get sick.
He’s just plane dum.
Not surprising from the “Heinz 57” President.
Nobody should go broke just because they get sick.
Nobody should go broke just because they lose their job.
Nobody should go broke just because they didn’t save enough.
Nobody should go broke just because they racked up some credit card debt.
Nobody should go broke just because they make some bad investments.
Nobody should go broke just because they invested in a Ponzi scheme.
Nobody should go broke just because they got in a little fight.
Nobody should go broke just because idiots elected Obama.
LOL, hilarious. Best reply was “your the smartest president ever.”
Spell checker would not have caught that error.
Eye halve a spelling chequer
It came with my pea sea
It plainly marques four my revue
Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.
Eye strike a key and type a word
And weight four it two say
Weather eye am wrong oar write
It shows me strait a weigh.
As soon as a mist ache is maid
It nose bee fore two long
And eye can put the error rite
Its rare lea ever wrong.
Eye have run this poem threw it
I am shore your pleased two no
Its letter perfect awl the weigh
My chequer tolled me sew.
There is no substitute for proof reading.
I love silly movies. One of my favorites is forever ruined because the beginning opens with one of GWB’s quotes- without a teleprompter- that said, “Where wings have dreams”.
Of course, everyone knew what he meant but, Hollywood makes him into a joke, while the teleprompter in office gets a pass.
Having to go broke because of an illness or accident is indistinguishable from having to go broke because the cost of (decidedly incomplete) coverage has become so costly. Consider both the limitations and the compulsory mandates on the insurance plans offered, and the co-pays that have to be met before dollar one is paid for medical benefits.
There is no “patient protection” in this poorly conceived act, and the care provided is certainly not affordable. The only part of the bill’s title that is remotely accurate is “2010”, a year that shall live in infamy.
Boiled down to its essentials, what the bill actually calls for is “Don’t get sick, and if you do, die quickly”.
But wait, isn’t that exactly what the Concresscritter from central Florida, Alan Grayson, accused the Republicans of having as their strategy?
Damn, they stole another idea. Only it wasn’t from the Republicans, it was the Malthusians who were so concerned with the pressure of human overpopulation.
Two words - Soylent Green. A most cautionary tale. And one which may all too soon be realized, should we pursue these confiscatory “health care” schemes and declining economic opportunity.
It’s not a typo. A typo is when you fat-finger the wrong key. This is plain public school ignorance.
” This is plain public school ignorance.”
That’s what Obama counted on for votes!!!
Obama voters are loosing it!!! /on purpose
Their making similar mistakes again. Its to often. That’s what happen when there thinking nothing too loose.
I could of done that ;^)
Well, the letter i is on the same keyboard as the e and easily mistaken by someone like Øbama, seriesly...
Only if you’re in one of the 57, err 60 states.
Otherwise, it would be ill eagle.
We’d need a Navy corpseman.
Imagine the 24/7 coverage if Bush had done that.
Looking for the photo of zero with the Danish Babe titled ‘Give the piece a chance’.
Thank goodness Michelle had not gotten physical.
That was a close one.
Need a “Hillary-Pelosi 2016” tag on the other foot, as well.
Or a “Clinton-Pelosi 2016” tag on the other foot, as well, but I think she’s kinda just “Hillary” these days.
Nobody should go broke just because they are White, honest, law-abiding, non-violent and have followed all the rules during their entire lives and have reached a certain age where the politicians tell them to go to hell.
> Nobody should go broke just because they get sick.
Nobody should go broke if they’re healthy and forced to pay for obamacare if they can’t afford it either.
If he were really concerned about Anericans going broke he would drive the economy into the ground and give them helthcare that osts them a 1/3 of thir inomes with deductibles so high they don’t even start paying anything until you’ve spent at least $6,000 out of pocket. If were really concerned he’d find a way to reign in the runaway costs of the medical / healthcare industry..
But then again Obamacare wasn’t really setup for the purpose of providing us healthcare. That’s just the ruse that’s being used.
