Obama: a billionaire should pay the same tax rate as a Jew?

Don’t look at me like that. That’s what the man said:

In fairness, he meant to say “janitor,” not “Jew,” and immediately corrected himself. Still, it’s an interesting mistake to make, given that he spent 20 years in the church of a racist, antisemitic pastor.

Perhaps his Freudian slip was showing?

    Given this comment – and his past association with the good Reverend – should be interesting to see what he has in store for Rosh Hashanah later this week! Now where may he look for inspiration …

    I agree with both of Obama’s comments. A rich person should pay the same rate as Jews, who probably pay reasonable tax rates and not the exorbitant tax rates Obama wants to sock the rich with. And the rich should pay the same rates as janitors who probably pay twenty percent less in taxes than the rich do. Either way it’s a win win for the wealthy job creators.

    Deluge AttackWatch.com (Obama’s campaign organ to dispel the smears against him) with his attacks of his minions against the Tea Party and Republicans. It’s time to call His Arrogancy out with the truth.

    Ya know, it would be nice if he knew what the word “fascist” really means. Lord knows he and his have used it enough times to describe the rest of us. Between stunts like this and his ham-handed attempt to get a grassroots “secret police” started………

    Paging Axis leaders, paging Axis leaders…..Axis leaders to the white courtesy telephone please……

    Was this “slip” deliberate? He’s talking to the CBC – they represent blacks, many of which regard Jews with contempt.

  6. Bear1909 says:

    The Boy Queen President in Name Only is a national disgrace. He represents everything wrong about the United States. And his rhetoric is sophomoric (high school level) at best. The teleprompter was off I take it. :d

    Oy, gevalt! Such a fershtinkener, this guy.

    Who says it was a slip of the tongue, a freudian slip? My thought is that it was just an initial volley in what will eventually become a Hitleresque replay, with Jews and TEA partiers grouped together as “enemies of the state” and the ones on whom all blame for everything bad is placed.

    That’s what, historically, all leftists and statists do.

    And as far as knowing what a “nazi” is, of course he does – that’s what he is, is a national socialist.

  10. Questionman says:

    So you think he’s anti-semitic and that’s why he wants billionaires to pay the same tax rate as Jews? Does that mean he’s anti-janitor too?

    You don’t know “Jack Sheet” …. The way people “respond to Israel” does not make them an anti-Semite …That’s old worn out and discredited BS psychological blackmail that has been used for years use to intimidate people and silence silence them …. It works no more and those that use this crap can take it and ram it throught the grommet and wrap it around their tonsils….. Let me give you an example of what I’m talking about: I am dead set against affirmative action and everybody here knows it ….does that make me a racist? No! I have railed against those that call Blacks “negroes”, railed against those that refer to our President in racially disparaging terms such as “Halfafrican”, railed against those that berate our Black citizens while at the same time have stated they need to undergo a “cultural transformation” as pointed out by Bill Cosby. I still support the President and intend to vote for him …. So, you have no point!!! … You’re just one of those small people that cannot stand to hear inconvenient truths that run against your religious and/or political predilections … That IS the bottom line …you, I and eveybody knows it so don’t try that sheet again.

    I love how you defend the offensive, Q-man. Is that the new form of affirmative action…vote for the unqualified wretch of a man. It’s your right to be stupid, too. He is depending on the vote of the elitist and ignorant who got him elected in the first place.

    …and by ignorant I mean people who didn’t even know who Obama was before he ran…just voted their bread and butter.

  12. Carlos says:

    A lot of them, Kate, maybe even a majority of them, actually voted for him based on the color of his skin and not the content of his heart.

    Gosh, what a phrase. Maybe someone famous will say it sometime in a major speech pointing out the inherent racism involved in that.
