Obama Without Teleprompter Alert

Or at least I certainly hope no one was fool enough to write this into a speech:

You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing's replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not.

And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.

Maybe Obama hired speech writers who recently worked for Absolut?

A poignant response can be found here.

The money quote from said veritable thermonuclear snark:
As far as I am concerned, guns and God are a feature, not a bug.
