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".—

Well, to be fair, they do both start with “c.”

Heh.

Several Twitterers noted that the Obama/Biden campaign seems to be particularly gaffetastic today:

"57 states"
"my muslim faith"
"here in China"

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.”

Bittersweet

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.

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.

As Obama gets more and more desperate, and more and more stressed, watch for these mistakes to get more frequent!

One hopes that at some point even the media will be forced to notice.
