    Default Romney spoke about of political strategy.



    At the $50,000 a plate fundraiser held in Boca Raton, Florida, Romney spoke about of political strategy. Asked about the Palestinian issue, he answered that "The Palestinians have no interest whatsoever in establishing peace, and the pathway to peace is almost unthinkable to accomplish."

    What is the purpose of "of" that being attached to preposition "about?"

    I see it as a typo. Could use either "about" or "of".

    Internet news sites have to move fast, so mistakes like this creep in.
