Mitt Romney: An Amercian Hero

Mitt Romney: An Amercian Hero

You can say what you want about Mitt Romney, but his campaign is creating the opportunity for a young man named Blue Sky Chen to go to college.

Now, granted, that’s not because of any kind of policy proposal Mitt has advanced. No, young Mr. Chen’s gain is thanks to his father’s fortuitous plan to purchase the Amercia.com domain. Yes, Amercia, the land that Mitt Romney’s campaign told its supporters would soon become better if they stood with Mitt.

According to a report in Mashable, John Chen, a Chinese citizen who lives in Shanghai, purchased the domain in 2009 because of his love of America. No, really — in an interview, Chen calls America “the first real democratic country in the human history.”

He said he knew Amercia was misspelled, but he didn’t mind. “Amercia is so near to America, and it makes us feel so close to the USA and it also reminds us that we must work hard to get near to our soul land.”

In the wake of the Romney campaign gaffe, the elder Mr. Chen has been fielding offers for the domain, and says he’d be willing to sell it for a mid-four figure value. And that’s Blue Sky Chen’s gain, because if the domain sells, John intends to save the money to send his son to school in America. Or perhaps Amercia, depending on who wins in November.

So there you have it: concrete educational gains from the Romney campaign. Sure, it’s for one kid, and sure, he lives in China, but what do you want, lower class sizes or something?

Ronmey 2102

Romney’s misspelling drew notice not just from people who were fortunate enough to own a slightly-irregular domain. It also drew attention from satirist Stephen Colbert, who proudly proclaimed his support for “Ronmey 2102.” Colbert ticked off the ways the new Amercia helped — from allowing America to dodge its creditors to giving a boost to Donald Trump’s birtherism (after all, we know Obama wasn’t born in Amercia!).

Colbert declared, “That’s a brilliant strategy. Now Romney can become the president of America or Amercia. He just doubled the odds.”

Romney is Anti-Science, Anti-Advancement,Polluter (Killer),Anti-women's rights (killer), Anti-Truth (Anti-Christ),Homophobic (Anti-Freedom) and omg he can't even take care of his dog! Interesting that he can't even take care of a dog but he claims he can take care of an entire country!!! I wouldn't trust him with my dog let alone an entire country full of people and dogs!!! How would he travel with a cat strap it to the bumper maybe god only knows!! Voting for him would be killing this country, people, freedom and lots of women... It will never happen and I don't care what he says. It's the root to his beliefs that I care about not how much he schmoozes and around facts! Romney is dr jekyll and mr hyde and we never know which one will come out even with the twisted beliefs he has against many freedoms. He might have schmoozed and play hyde to get where he did in Mass but he doesn't fool me.

How about Mitt Romney - An Amercian Zero?

I bet that Romney's poor dog, Seamus, didn't think he was a hero while he was riding on top of the 'family' car for twelve hours, getting sick, and pooping all over the roof, and down the windows? then getting hosed off and put back in the kennel on the roof. Do you?

Some people suggest that Romney, in order to avoid making anymore US jobs on Obama's watch (and also because he's cheap), outsourced the development of his app, and some Chinese worker accidentally misspelled America. You know, like in those assembly directions that you get with Chinese made products. Many people have also said that Mr. Chen works for the company that developed the app, and he misspelled it on purpose. Some are saying that Mr. Chen knew such an opportunity might arise back in 2009 when he figured out that the guy who "created" his job (brought it over to China from Amercia) would be running for president, and Romney would likely want to use the low paid labor of the company he moved to China, to design his smart phone apps. That's why he bought the domain name, so he could plant it in the app, increasing the demand and thus the value of the domain. If Romney can get duped by one Chinese man, on something this important to his campaign, how can he deal with China as a nation? Many others have been saying that Amercia is the name of some kind of Mormon nation of LDS prophesy, and what we'll all end up with, if Romney "wins" (suppresses enough votes) in November. I'm not saying I agree with any of these theories, but a lot of people have some legitimate concerns, and I think the media needs to do it's job and conduct a serious investigation.
