President Barack Obama during a campaign stop in Denver, Colo., on Wednesday had a minor slip of the tongue while touting his so-called “all of the above” energy policy.
“I want fuel-efficient cars and long-lasting batteries,” the president said, “and wind turbines manufactured here in China!”
The president immediately realized what he had just said and corrected himself.
“I don’t want them manufactured in China,” he said, “I want them manufactured here in the United States.”
The president’s misstatement can almost certainly be attributed to the rigors of campaigning.
But who knows? Maybe he was trying to give Vice President Joe Biden a break from the gaffe news cycle.
