Skip to comments.Obama gaffe: President says billionaires should pay ‘Jew’ tax rate [on Video]
Posted on 09/26/2011 5:15:43 AM PDT by NativeNewYorker
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.

What’s in the heart eventually makes its way to the tongue.
This is absolutely UNREAL! This SHOULD go viral...
(I watched the video to make sure...)
What an odd word to pop out in free association from that little noggin. I would question if janitor was even the word on the teleprompter. Isn’t the pc term building maintenance worker?
Ahh, he stumbled on an idea there, a Jew tax! Brilliant, just brilliant!
“Whats in the heart eventually makes its way to the tongue.”
Remember when 0bama blurted out “my Muslim faith” in an interview with George Steponallofus.

Searched and did not find this posted. Amazing amazing clip.
It looks like I would have caught it if I'd searched for 'Jew', with single quotes around it.
Is there even one Republican with the spine and guts to go after this fraud and expose his corruption and the evil that is within him and those surrounding him? Just one patriot? Is there not one American patriot willing to expose this Administration so that We The People will demand impeachment and prosecution of all the morally-bankrupt political Elitists in DC who are out to destroy our country and our freedom.
Please explain why there is not one person who will put their country before their own greed!
baraq is getting nervous. He is starting to let his inner muslim creep out. As more time goes on, I’d bet he exposes more and more of who he really is. Can’t pretend forever.
But it is a good thing he didn’t misspell potato. He would have been run out of town for that. sarc.
This link must go to Drudge, Rush, Malkin, Breitbart, et al.
Jew tax rate = Obama regurgitating 20 years of ‘Rev Wright’s’ Jew Bashing ‘theology’.
Freudian slip (he’s a Muslim)!
it's called the "Jizya".
See FR’s “four hour rule”, even that sometimes is amended when a topic is hot enough.
Last week, ‘bama played golf with Bill Clinton, This week he is going to play “gaffes’” with Joe Biden.
I should’ve linked your freeper post instead of you tube :(
It happens all the time and I might not have seen it if it had not come back up.
So, are you saying that since that post is over four hours old, nobody is interested in the comments there?

I never said this poster shouldn't have posted it. I just provided a link for anyone interested in this topic to see other comments about this article.
Be more specific, Barry. You talking about Unionized Jew janitors in New York who make over $100,000 a year or non-Union Jew janitors in Paducah, Kentucky who make $30,000 a year?
I wouldn’t hold this against Obama. As much as he hates and despises successful working people who profit from their own productivity, he doesn’t hate millionaires or even billionaires as much as he despises the Jews. This was a simple verbal slip by TOTUS and nothing more.
Regardless, it demonstrates that he is incapable of thinking clearly, and he isn't the great orator that people claim. He can't even organize and deliver a simple sentence, without making gaffes like this or stuttering like an imbecile.
Sometimes I use the wrong word in my sentences, but I never slip in words that are unusual to my working vocabulary. I’d be hard pressed to remember when I’d last had reason to use the word ‘Jew’.
It’s silly to imagine that Obama has some secret plan to tax non-Muslims, but a slip of the tongue such as this seems to indicate an odd preoccupation with Jewish people.
Has Mel Gibson offered support and counsel yet? Mel at least had the excuse of being filthy drunk.
This is the same type of gaffe Dick Armey made when he called Barney Frank, “Barney Fag.” He didn’t mean to say it but you know he had to be thinking it. Obama is anti-Jewish, pure and simple.
This slip is named after me!
The dummycrat party continues to be the biggest anti-Semetic organization in the U.S., and this teleprompter-less asshat proved it again.
But . . . the Jew-Janitors will vote for the dummycrats en masse . . . go figure!
Are we back to ‘hymie-town’?
I can’t stomach watching the whole speech...but the snippets I’ve heard have been insulting all the way around.
It could very well be that. To me it's just an idication that he's simply making this stuff up as he goes, pretty much like he's done all his life. Barack Obama is nothing more than the quaintessential bullsh!t artist, and as he "wings" himself through every social encounter he has, he knows that his charm will cover any mistakes he makes along the way. He's had plenty of practice at it and he's very good at it.
Jew......Janitor, yeah I always get those two mixed up too (shakes head in disgust)
This is confirmed by his use of the phrase "badge of honor", the zionist gold star Bibi pinned on him at the UN. Zero may have some trouble sleeping these days, knowing that mooslims don't take kindly to collaborators, lol.
Let’s take these Obama “Gaffes” and analyze them carefully!!! The first one, confusing the use of the word Jew with the word Janitor!!! There is no way in heaven that any common sense, objective human being can make a case that the word Jew and the word Janitor have any common ground at all. Now if the POTUS Obama had confused the word Jew with the word greedy businessman, I can understand that (not agree with it), but there is no way that can be done between the words Jew and Janitor. Fact is: POTUS Obama slipped out with his true feelings about Jews!!! Why? He is an African Muslim, he has been raised and fed the hate of Jews from Black racists, Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Louie Farrakhan and....he was addressing the biggest Jew hater group in the USA, the Congressional Black Caucus. Remember the rants ands raves of Jesse Jackson about “Hymie” Jews. And.....Al Sharpton is a “professional Jew hater!!! Folks, this was no mistake, no gaffe, it was just simply the real Obama and his true feelings. Second, if the multitude of the CBC Christians believe for one minute that Obama is their man, just take a good gander of the rape, jailing, torture, starvation, murder of thousands of innocent African Black Christians going on in Libya and North Africa by Obama’s soul brothers in the “Muslim Brotherhood”!!! Hate to say it, but Black folk in the USA better get real about Obama. He is not your friend, nor your ally, he never was and he never will be!!! The truth hurts and always opts out in the end!!!
More like a tenet of Islam that the Jew and the Christian pay taxes at a higher rate for the privilege of being allowed to live (in the nation of Islam).
Look, the real Obama is now on view, the poor soul is mentally unbalanced. He is Hitler in his last days in the bunker in April, 1945!!! Same rants, same insanity, same hatred, The Black racist Muslim displays his hateful roots for the entire world to see!!! the man should be forced to resign the POTUS slot by his own political party. Obama does not cut the mustard for any American at all!!!
I agree that it is more a reflection of his confused thought processes and poor ability to create a connected sentence (as well as his tendency to misuse or mispronounce words) than anything else. But why that particular word, completely out of place?
We have to remember that in this talk he was modeling himself on one of his mentors, the putrid Rev. Wright, and I think he was used to hearing phrases like “billionaire Jews” and other anti-Jewish slurs come trippingly off this “pastor’s” tongue. Oviously, one of these Jew-baiting phrases surfaced in Bambi’s Magic 8-Ball mind, probably triggered by the word “billionaire,” and just simply bubbled forth.
So while he probably wasn’t thinking of anything in particular when he said this, it seems to me that we heard a bit of the soundtrack that is always playing in his head.
Wouldn't he have confused the Jew with the Billionaire then, rather than the janitor?
I don't quite understand the subliminal correlation between "Jew" and "janitor" with regard to animosity, considering that the janitor in his example is understood as the good guy, and is associated with the audience.
Again, I simply think he's making this stuff up as he's goes. In other words, when he started the sentence, he probably had no idea what he was going to compare the "billionaire" to. You guys give him too much credit for formulating thoughts before he speaks. He's simply a bllsh*t artist who most times doesn't have clue what he's talking about.
That's the real Barack Obama.
Ah, a “Jew” tax - hasn’t that been tried already oh, I don’t know, in some European country back in the late 30’s?
(what’s that I hear? The breaking of glass???).
That's entirely possible.
Dear Barack (you do know you were named after a HORSE, don’t you?):
A Jew (who is most assuredly not a billionaire - not even a millionaire).
P.S. Just so that your small and poor excuse for a mind gets it, FUBO! FUBO! FUBO!
When he's off teleprompter he lacks his smooth reading style and mangles things.
Last week he called the transcontinental railroad the intercontinental railroad.
Also last week, he said Buffett's secretary should not pay lower taxes than her boss. I think only Mark Levin picked up on that flub.
Our youth have been taught these types of slips are revelatory, that they uncover a racist mindset.
Bush's way with words became "proof" of his stupidity. Quayle reading a flashcard's incorrect spelling of potato became an anchor around his neck. Perry's managed debate answer may have killed his campaign.
Ingraham spent an hour on his CBC speech and the dropped "g's" and didn't mention this slip.
It was posted on the side bar last night but has been taken down for reasons unknown.
I think this should have stayed up longer on the sidebar.
Indeed,and when the booze is in the truth is out.In Obama’s case the booze is power.
Consistent with his religion? Isn’t there a tax upon the people of the book?
I noticed that as well. I'm not sure. Do we have Obama supporters among the sidebar mods? Sometimes I wonder, based on what gets pulled or reclassified from "news" to "blogs" or "chat."

An insult to horses, no matter how you look at it.
In my opinion, one could equate Obama’s slip of the tongue or Freudian slip as whipping up the masses against Jews to what took place in Germany the the early 1930’s. Jews have been easy targets for thousands of years due to the fact that they were educated, merchants, and had money compared to the average person at the time. Pitting the “haves” with the “have nots” is a favorite in the Liberal playbook which is being used today by this Administration and Liberals in Congress.
Liberal Jews better re-read their history books and wake up before they, like millions of Jews throughout history, find themselves in the cross hairs of dictators and tyrants (witness this Administration’s policies against Israel). We all better be equally as aware.
IMO, we have evidence to conclude that Liberals and their accomplices have become the tyrants of today.
