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???
This slip might be even worse than the article suggests. He possibly meant to say: "Billionaires should not pay the Jew tax rate." Maybe a conspiratorial thought that Jews pay some inexplicably low and 'unfair' tax rate.
Had this been Palin...
Was George Stephanopolous there to correct him?
Your Christian Faith, LOL...
It’s almost as if he’s purposefully setting himself up for defeat.
Well, cut him some slack, at least he didn’t misspell potatoe. That would be criminal!
Does Drudge know about this? Rush? Breitbart? Can’t wait till the morning programs. This is disastrous for the Man-Child.
It’s uncomfortably plausible. A Jew to him would be someone who is consummately skilled at shucking off taxes by means fair or foul, looking only at money when figuring how to do business.
I wonder when, or even if, America will be privy to the Obama equivalent to the Nixon “expletive deleted” tapes?
Correction: Obama probably did not mean to say that, but that is possibly a stereotypical thought an anti-Semite might have, that Jews pay some unfairly low tax rate peculiar only to them.
HEADS UP PING!
Thank you Lord~~
The Lord works in mysterious ways and I have a feeling He has only begun playing with Howdy Doody.
Don’t be a schmarty, join the Nazi Democrat party !
Next he’ll offer a Final Solution for Janitors!
Not to mention hearing what his pastor of twenty years, who baptized his kids, whom he attended the services and supposedly didn’t hear, none other than Jeremiah Wright.
If the rich DID pay the same rate as the janitor, then the revenue would drop by about 75% because the working poor pay almost nothing.
lol. One of the more ridiculous non-stories I’ve seen in a while.
Uh huh. Crossed up his alliteration, there. Slipped up and used the “J” word he meant to conceal with “billionaire.”
You know that’s what happened, his crowd just loves alliteration and do not like Jews or Israel.
“Jews should pay the same rate as janitors” has such a Jeremiah Wright ring to it. No doubt in my mind, that’s what he was tring too hard not to say, on the record at least.
you are gonna hit the wall, mr. foolish-bigot-thug-fag-president.
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Fiscus Judaicus ping.
Or? Could Barack have had the Islamic jizya tax system for non-Muslims in Muslim countries, in mind?
Mayor Bloomberg went after Obama on the tax millionaires bit...saying Obama is full of cr**.
Yea, I think Jew every time a see a janitor. NOT!
Maybe Obama was tired???
When is so many gaffes a pattern in one´s thinking?
Over and over and over and over the gaffes this guy does and get away with. How he is able to do this without any political harm is way beyond me.
Jewish janitor...there is a joke in there somewhere!
A simple slip of the prophet, nothing to get upset about...
