Skip to comments.Obama gaffe: President says billionaires should pay ‘Jew’ tax rate
Posted on 09/25/2011 6:31:31 PM PDT by martosko
Speaking at the Congressional Black Caucus annual awards dinner in Washington Saturday night, President Obama made a verbal boo-boo.
While defending his call for the rich to pay more in taxes, the president said he didnt mind people calling him a class warrior for merely asking a billionaire to pay the same tax rate as a Jew. Whoops!
The president meant to say janitor instead of Jew, and he immediately corrected himself. After all, he doesnt need any more problems keeping Jewish voters enthusiastic about his re-election bid.

no he says Jew and blames Jews but he let it slip and no doubt FOX and other other pro homo pro cross dressing media will cover this up yet again.
The real thoughts of Barry slip into public.
Don’t tell me...it’s Bush’s fault and even the teleprompter’s fault.
The dumbest President ever.
No. He meant to say, "Jew," and he did. Those among my people who cannot recognize a virulent strain of anti-Semitism in Obama are beyond willfully ignorant.
I am getting “Content Unavailable”...
Hitlerian slip (another person who spoke the “Austrian” language)
Will the GOP be too shy to use this against him? Let’s hold our collective breath!
Luckily for Obama the MSM will totally ignore this... an advantage dems have by having the press in their pocket...
Wow what a loser!
This is worse than Dick Armey saying Barney Fag. It's worse than Macaca. It's worse than Jerry Ford and Poland. It's worse than Perry's 'heartless' comment.
In a sane universe, this election would be over right now. Pack your golf bags, Barry.
Lesseee......what group to mental wackos always have Jews on their mind?
Do the name Islam mean anythin’ to ya?
The Loon is a muslim.
He has a hangup about the Jewish people and of course, whites. How they ever trust him. I ques they have big hearts or way too modern. It comes a time, not trusting someone will benefit others in the long run, as in this instance. It is such a shame he gets away with everything. This is why I am so upset with the Repubs/they will not confront him (not for a slip up of words-I mean all of this abuse of power)
Imagine if a Pubbie had said this. The MSM would be all over this tomorrow. But I doubt if they’ll say anything.
At least he didn’t refer to New York City as “Hymietown” like Jesse Jackson did.
It's not that he said Jew...it's how he said Jew....like he forgot the Hillary adjective.
I can practically assure you that a janitor pays no taxes.
And this was a BLACK caucus....maybe using janitor was not the best choice....kinda like equating typical blacks with janitors???
