Obama gaffe: President says billionaires should pay ‘Jew’ tax rate
The Daily Caller ^ | 09/25/2011 | Jamie Weinstein

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 didn’t 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 doesn’t 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.

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.

WTF? Meant to say janitor and said Jew?

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.

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)

Wow.....Talk about biggies!!!

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???

Obama gaffe: President says billionaires should pay ‘Jew’ tax rate.

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.

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?

He possibly meant to say:

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.

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.

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.

the Kenyan Kaliph was simply thinking of the jizyah, or the tax imposed on infidels by their mohammedan masters.

A simple slip of the prophet, nothing to get upset about...
