Yeah, he had a diction issue. Not a big deal. Like we all don't have little stutters or slip-ups every so often. Give me a break.

"janitor". It would have been less like a Freudian slip if his word would have started with "ju".

Obviously, you're aware that doesn't make any sense?

We know what the scripted word was. It was 'janitor'. We know that, because he took another run at it, and got it right.

The point Ashmoria is obviously making, is that that's obviously not what he was saying BEFORE he stopped and started over. "Jupiter","junior"... "juror"... we don't know what word he almost said before he backtracked and corrected... BECAUSE he backtracked and corrected.

Please, enough with the tired partisan bullshit. We get it, you don't like him. But you don't have to crawl the rightwing fringe press looking for faked reasons to hate on him.

Being silly for suggesting that Obama started to say something that may not have made sense, made a minor fuck-up of what it was when he got a look at the full line in the teleprompter, and corrected himself?

Either a huge slip-up on the teleprompter's front or a very big slip of the tongue.

All being said, Obama probably don't have anything against the Jews. He got pretty good support from them last time and it's looking to become a 50/50 during the next election. He's been caught between the Palestinian/Israeli UN conference for quite some time and it's easy to misplace things in racially-sensitive matters like that.

And no, I don't like Obama as a president one bit. I think he is a disaster, but pretty much every president slips up like that every now and then.
