Obama & Peeps Are Proud to Campaign In Oiho

A word of advice to @BarackObama: it’s “O-H-I-O” that has 18 electoral votes, not “O-I-H-O”

Obama and his team are going for the “Oiho” vote. As long as they don’t win “Ohio”, I’m okay with it.

In the photo above, Romney’s Ohio communications director, Christopher Maloney, shows Obama and three students all a little confused about how to spell the state’s 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.

This is another “potatoe scandal.” Dan Quayle served as the 44th Vice President of the U.S. His most famous blunder occurred when he altered 12 year old student William Figueroa’s correct spelling of “potato” to “potatoe” at the Munoz Rivera Elementary School spelling bee in Trenton, NJ, on June 15, 1992.

Potato ended in an “e” in the 19th century.
