White House tweet: Obamacare will give mom 'piece of mind'

The administration wants to control one-sixth of the economy, but it seems to have a problem with basic spelling. A tweet issued by the White House on Thursday included a graphic saying Obamacare will give mom "piece of mind," Yahoo! News reported.

That's "piece" as in "a piece of cake," not "peace," as in "give peace a chance," Yahoo! added.

"#GetCovered because your mom will have peace of mind (and you will as well)," the text of the tweet said. The picture included with the tweet, however, contained the misspelling.

"As far as typos go, it might not be quite as precious as this 2012 'pubic affairs' spelling mistake from the University of Texas, but you can’t get much more high-profile than the White House ― and its 4.4 million Twitter followers," Yahoo! News said.

An earlier tweet contained a picture of Obama holding a sign that read, “Nobody should go broke just because they get sick.”

Conservatives had fun with that tweet, Yahoo! said, resulting in what Eric Pfeiffer called "at least one golden Internet meme," with a number of people changing Obama's sign.

One picture, for example, shows Obama holding a sign that says, "I'm going to heal this nation even if it kills you."

Another shows Obama holding a picture of himself sitting with Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at the memorial service for Nelson Mandela.

As of this writing, the tweet still exists on the White House Twitter feed, and the White House still has not addressed the misspelled graphic.

A slideshow with some of the pictures can be seen here.
