President Obama Has Another Oops moment …”If Asking a Billionaire to Pay the Same Tax Rate as a Jew … I Mean a Janitor”
Imagine if George W. Bush or Sarah Palin made the same or similar comment … the MSM would have it as its leading story in print and TV.
It would appear that President Barack Obama has “Jew” on the brain. During his speech at the CBC, the Congressional Black Caucus Annual dinner, Obama made the following comment, “if asking a billionaire to pay the same tax rate as a Jew … I mean a janitor.” OOPS! Damn that teleprompter. How dare the teleprompter show “Jew” instead of “janitor”.
Who knew that the US tax code had a special tax rate for Jews? One really has to wonder what is going on inside of Obama’s head to make such gaffes? Then again, with Barack Obama there are also 57 US states, he forgets his daughter’s age , signs the wrong year at Westminster Abbey, and forgets what city he is campaigning in. All this from the smartest President evah.
UPDATE I: Maxine Waters says Obama got too fired up and went off his teleprompter.Once again we are presented that once Obama goes off script and does not read from his prepared speech loaded into his teleprompter, he becomes a total screw up.
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) said President Obama got carried away in an address to a Congressional Black Caucus dinner where he said supporters should “stop complaining” and start fighting.
“I think [Obama] got carried away. He got fired up,” Waters said Monday in an interview with MSNBC. Obama “got off script and got a little bit beside himself but I certainly don’t believe that he thinks the Congressional Black Caucus is sitting around in house slippers and bed slippers and whatever those things are — I don’t own them and I don’t understand the image that was described there.”
Waters added that Obama just went off his planned remarks in his speech.
UPDATE II: US Rep. Maxine Waters called President Barack Obama’s comments to black Americans that they should stop complaining “a bit curious” and said she doesn’t “know who he was talking to.” Rut-roh, trouble in paradise. Waters basically called out Obama and said that he would never make such comments to Jews or Hispanics.
The California Democrat told CBS’s “Early Show” the president would never have addressed other communities like gays or Jews or Hispanics in the way he did at the annual awards dinner for the Congressional Black Caucus on Saturday when he told the audience to “stop complaining.”
