Was this just a typical Obama-ism?
Was this a Freudian slip?
Was this a teleprompter error?
Was the teleprompter hacked?

IMO, as a result of sitting and listening to Jeremiah Wright, this is an actual Freudian slip.


Freudian slip. He almost revealed the Jewish Freemasonry dominated New World Order. Thankfully, nobody knows that they are really a front for the Native American dominated New World Order. 8)

"juke box vendors" is secret liberal speak for "evil capitalists who dont make more than $250k/year"

Probably just a mistake, which I notice isn't in the options. Of your option:

Hack: Seems unlikely that anyone would go through the trouble to put something so mild in the teleprompter.

Teleprompter Error: Why would he have said "Janitor" if the teleprompter said "Jew?" If the teleprompter said it, and he said it, he probably would've gone with the "finish the word" type of correction, like "junior football coach."

Freudian slip: This doesn't even make sense, for numerous reasons:

-Jews aren't paying higher taxes than everyone else.
-If it was a anti-semitic Freudian slip, shouldn't it be implying that Jews have MORE money than other people? Saying "Jew" instead of "Janitor" doesn't really make any sense. If he'd said "Jew" instead of "billionaire" this might be a valid theory.
-While I don't like Obama at all, and there are many character flaws I certainly believe he has, he has never struck me as an anti-semite.

This, how does it make sense to say he was being anti-semitic by implying that Jews are being forced to pay more money in taxes then billionaires, the stereotype of Jews is that they are all rich so if he was being anti-semitic should he being saying Jews and billionaires are paying to little? It is more likely a mispronunciation of beginning of janitor on his part, and the mishearing of the word Jew on the Paulite who posted the information.

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.

LOL.

"We need billionaires to pay as much as Jupiters?"
"We need billionaires to pay as much as juniors?"
"We need billionaires to pay as much as jurors?"

Now you're being silly.

Hey, it might be a stutter. But I wonder if it isn't.


None of those sentences would make sense. So the President would stop and correct himself before he got too far into something stupid.

And, as it happened, that's what he did.

I'm not the one being 'silly' here.
