The expression in English is “set foot” not step foot.

That’s racist, you Anglo-centric bigot.

You can use both.

No, one either steps or sets foot. On does not "step" one's foot.

It is an error born of illiteracy. People hear the words incorrectly and if they don't read very much they don't catch the error. Somebody likened it to saying, "for all intensive purposes".

Only if you’re willing to be wrong :).

An alternate accepted usage gets that way because large enough numbers of people make the error until it becomes normal. Foe example, the expression, “under weigh” is also, (but erroneously) spelled “under way”. The correct spelling is related to the expression “to weigh anchor”; the other spelling became accepted due to large numbers of erroneous usages.

It’s all trivial, I agree but a woman who has unnecessarily involved herself with the nations schools at least ought to know the language

HA, HA!

I could look at that picture a thousand times and still laugh every time.

Looks like Romney ruined her anniversary...actually, First Wookie, it was your husband's gift.

Why does she stand so unladylike. Looks like a wrestler about to try and take Mitt down.

Run, Mitt, she's got the stink eye on you!

I've got my own set of issues," she said.

Ahem...

"So I don't even have the kind of expertise and the time in to be able to provide the kind of advice and guidance that he's already getting."

Such humility.

I call it the Aunt Esther look ... legs spread in a combative stance, evil glare, hell to pay.

The resemblance is uncanny.
