I hate it when too much is made of a politician's verbal gaffes-sometimes we just misspeak. But I do hope, given his emphasis on civility and all, POTUS will avoid future verbal mishaps like this one:
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.
In fairness, though, you could interpret the president's gaffe as a positive: Wasn't he just suggesting that for some reason Jews were being unfairly targeted with higher taxes, and he wanted to make billionaires pay the same rate? Maybe, maybe not
It must have been TOTUS' (Teleprompter of the United States) night off.
