Mitt Romney’s VP Pick Will Be Announced Via iPhone App

By: Josh Wolford - July 31, 2012

If you asked 100 people the question “Which Presidential candidate is more tech-savvy,” I bet you’d be hard-pressed to find 5 that said Mitt Romney. After his strong use of social media and internet donations back in 2008, President Obama received the reputation of being the guy whose campaign would best leverage technology.

When it comes to social media specifically, it’s not even close. Not only does Obama have more than nine times the Facebook likes, but he also has nearly double the Facebook users talking about him and a wide lead in “viral reach.” Mitt Romney’s yet to crack 1 million Twitter followers, and the President currently sits at 18+ million.

Obama also just unveiled a new iPhone app called Obama for America that pushes breaking news, as well as campaign event information and volunteering opportunities.

But hold up, says the Romney campaign. In an effort to utilize the smartphone-obsessed American culture, Mitt Romney has announced that he will first announce his Vice Presidential pick (whenever that happens) via an iOS/Android app.

It has the clever title of Mitt’s VP, and is free in iTunes and Google Play.

It’s a question everyone’s asking: who will be Mitt Romney’s VP? There’s no telling when that answer might come. But when it does, be the first to find out and access exclusive content with the Mitt’s VP app. Just download the app and when Mitt decides on his running mate, you’ll get an exclusive notification from the campaign letting you in on the exciting news before the press and just about everyone else (except maybe Ann).

So, who will it be? Rubio? Pawlenty? Jindal? Portman? Whoever it is, he wants those who’ve enabled push notifications to be the first to know.

    Whoever Romney picks for his running mate will need to get fitted for their Magic Mormon Underwear soon! These sacred undergarments harness the power of the Almighty to cinch up the Bible Belt to cough up their cash for their crusade to the White House. See for yourself how these miracles are performed and how money plays its role in politics at

    Trying to start another de facto war via Israel is not what the United States voters are wanting right now. So they did it with our planes, tains, and automobiles in 1967. It took 6 days then with superior U.S. weapons. Now the recent war with Lebanon took over a month and they did’t even get anywhere except a bunch of reprimands in the Israeli govt. A war with the U.S. via the Israeli regime against Iran will take take years, as did Iraq, Afghanistan, and others. Now they are talking about starting to stop selling oil and “get into an alternative business.” Maybe the business will be similar to A.Q. Kahn’s business of export “nuke-lee-ar” technology in Pakistan where he is regarded as a GOD.– and they are allies of the U.S. Maybe Iran will be our next ally. We keep out noses out of soverign country’s business and live and let live. Hugo Chavez is on board and so is Iraq. If we can convey our fears to Iran and North Korea maybe they will calm down and make the world a productive place again.
