Obama tells audience he wants more wind turbines ‘manufactured here in China’

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:

Oof.

Obama just referred to Colorado as “here in China”.

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