Unfortunate error for Mitt Romney as ‘testing’ President elect page goes live

Mitt Romney has been caught out by Google again: not only is he the poster boy for ‘completely wrong’ in Google images, a mistake in making a testing domain live has meant that everyone can see his ‘President elect’ page.

The problem was that the site was tested on a live domain…and was not blocked from Google.

Website politicalwire.com managed to take screenshots before the Romney page was pulled, but the page is still ranked on Google, and available in Google Cache (albeit in a not-so-attractive text form).

The site was designed by a Utah based company called SolutionStream.

That made me a little sick in my mouth I must admit. Especially when the star spangled banner started playing on a loop and three F16's flew over my house. Hold on, what do you mean there was no music with the image????
