Fourth Grader Beats Mitt Romney in National Spelling Bee
After a third misspelling (in less than a week) appeared on Mitt Romney’s personal Facebook page recently, the presidential candidate set out to prove he wasn’t an idiot.
The Republican leader took part in the 2012 Scripps National Spelling Bee this afternoon, facing off against 277 competitors ranging in age from 6 to 15.
Sadly, the 65-year old was eliminated in the first round after being stumped by the word “impoverished.” Despite being provided with the word’s origin, definition and having the moderator use it in a sentence, the former Massachusetts governor was baffled.
After the show, Romney admitted defeat by tweeting: “Congradulations to my oponent, hoping 4 better luck against Oboma!”
