At a campaign event this afternoon in Denver, President Obama touted the importance of green energy industries in the United States. And when he got to the bit about wind turbines, well, his teleprompterlessness reared its ugly head:

Obama just referred to Colorado as "here in China".

Several Twitterers noted that the Obama/Biden campaign seems to be particularly gaffetastic today:
Biden thought Ohio was Iowa today and Obama thought Colorado was China. youtube.com/watch?v=PuVOBS Hard when things don't start with the letter B

Can’t breathe.... Oh man... Oh MAN!!!!....
Gawd... I haven’t laughed like this in ages... my sides hurt...
I am really starting to feel sorry for the Bamster. He’ll be hiding under his bed soon.
Did he think he was back in Manchuria?
Too bad his MSM buddies don’t put this out. I read the US news as though it’s coming from the Best Korea.
Wow, that George W. Bush is full of gaffes. I can’t wait to see this one broadcast far and wide by our merciless media!
I wonder if it was on the news in China??? er Colorado???
So he’s selling Colorado to China to cover his next vacation?
He gittin bad lately : )
I can’t wait until he goes on that 2 day around the clock campaign stint, it should produce some gems.
Hah! In such unguarded moments, we clearly see where his head is--standing with his faith-comrades and their 57 OIC (Organisation of Islamic Cooperation) member states, and heavily counting on his yet-needed tens of millions from his Chinese bundler's website.
Biden In Ohio saying “Here In Iowa”
Biden quickly caught his error though saying “Well, just move the letters around and it spells Ohio.”
TOTUS strikes again
Wow, even TOTUS is trying to get him to tell the truth!!!
Sweet because it’s a funny gaffe. Biden must be rubbing off on him.
Bitter because he probably will be getting another pass in the echo chamber. Were he a Republican we would be getting jokes written and presented, and serious reporters would be asking (at least rhetorically) whether the country deserves a POTUS who does not know where he is.
Ha ha ha...lack of sleep makes the truth pop right out...
Thought you would enjoy this.
Wasn’t he in Hawaii once and referred to it as Asia?
What gets me is that they say that windmills will be manufactured in every state. That just plain couldn’t work even if it were the truth.
Maybe Obama thinks China is one of the 57 states LOL..I feel so sorry for Obama’s teleprompter..can you imagine the hell its gone through these last 4 years..that thing alone could write a tell all novel
He was speaking in Austrian, so not many people caught the gaffe.
He recovered well, though, flip-flopping in the very next sentence.
One hopes that at some point even the media will be forced to notice.
