Mitt Romney to Announce Vice President Via Smart Phone App

Is Team Romney cutting edge or so 2008?

This offer is sure to vex all the Obama campaigners who think they alone are on the cutting edge of voter outreach.

“While I won’t be breaking any news today, I wanted to let you know how to be the first to get the VP scoop with our new Mitt’s VP app,” says Beth Meyers, the senior adviser to Mitt Romney who has led the search for his running mate these many weeks.

Indeed the big news can be flashed to I-Phones and Androids at the very nanosecond the decision goes public.

“There’s no telling when that answer might come. But when it does, be the first to find out and access exclusive content,” Ms. Meyers says.

If Romney had not come up with this obvious way to obtain voter information, he would have been criticised as behind the curve with voter outreach technology. So, Team Romney cannot win on this one.

It is so 2008 – but then again, so is Team Obama.

The social media world has caught up with the campaigns.

On the app, you can get it here – but the announcement will be up on Twitter and Facebook in a flash after it is announced.

Of course, Team Obama has this cool canvassing app, but surely Romney will not be too far behind. Besides how many states are really in play anyway?

Five or six maybe?
