Some of us might agree that presidential candidate Mitt Romney is not the brightest one of the bunch, from his misinformed statements and failed attempts to make President Barack Obama look bad during the presidential debates, but what I just read boggled me.
I'm not 100% sure how accurate this story is, but being the person in question, it is not that hard to believe. Yesterday Mitt Romney was speaking at a retirement home in Florida before the last presidential debate and he called for a banning of Instagram. His claim is that the program is used for measuring quantities of illegal street drugs. This is another example of Romney speaking without checking and verifying his information.
According to Romney, thousands of kids are dying from marijuana overdoses. Marijuana overdoses? Really?
Romney tried to link this so-called drug problem to Obama's economic policies and of course stated what he would do if elected president. He's quoted to have said:
"I've just heard about this application - a mobile application for your iPhone And what you do is place a small amount of cocaine, or marijuana, or PCP on top of your phone and the application instantly tells you how many grams you have."
"Its called Instagram. And do you know what the really scary thing is people? I'm told this instant drug measurement tool is the 9th most downloaded app for the iPhone."
"I visited the University of Florida recently. And everyone in the halls was talking about their Instagrams and how much they were sharing their 'dope pics' with their friends. They don't even try to hide it anymore. Under Obama dope has become an acceptable part of the culture."
"This is what the youth of Obama's America look like. Out of work. Up to their eyeballs in debt. And hopeless, they turn to their Instagrams to sell and consume drugs."
"Well when I am President we'll get our kids off their iPhones and into good paying jobs. And then we must ban this Instagram to make it harder for our children to fall into the trap of illegal substances."
