'Why should a billionaire pay the same tax as a Jew?'

Post  Old Mack on Thu Sep 29, 2011 8:37 am

Yes President Obama speaks so eloquently and Bush spoke so poorly as President !

A freudian slip, also known as a slip of the tongue, is an error in speech caused by a repressed train of thought. In other words, the speaker was subconsciously thinking about what he said but it was not intended to be heard by others, in the context in which he said it. On Saturday, U.S. President Barack Obama, 50, experienced such a freudian slip during a speech to drum up support for his so-called “Buffett tax”, an increase in taxes on the wealthy.

Obama’s slip of the tongue came when he tried to draw a parallel between billionaires paying the same taxes as a janitor. But instead of saying “janitor” he said “Jew”. “If asking a billionaire to pay the same tax rate as a Jew, as a janitor, makes me a warrior for the working class, I wear that with a badge of honour. I have no problem with that. It’s about time,” Obama said.

If we refer back to the definition of a freudian slip, we understand that the words ‘Jew’, ‘billionaire’ and ‘tax’ were lurking somewhere in the recesses of Mr. Obama’s relaxed mind. So even though the president subconsciously put those words together in his mind, he didn’t mean for that particular train of thought to slip out in the presence of others.

Freudian slip... interesting. I always called it subconscious betrayal.

It's funny when you try to not say something... why is it so difficult? You reveal what you didn't want to reveal when you try to do that sometimes.

Many times I say "I'm gonna smoke some coffee". I want to say "I'm gonna make some coffee"... but the most important thing about coffee is the cigarette I smoke while I drink it.

no idea about your words in connection to what Mack wrote....because he is too complicated for me in some of his posts
(no offence intended, mack)

asdf.
what a wonderful thing to say, and so very true.

we say the word wrong by replacing it with the word we really want to say

No offence taken tatiana since you might not keep up with what is going on in America.

So let me briefly explain ...when President Bush was in office he was hounded by the ultraliberals at almost everything he did or said, no matter what. (one time he was bashed because the tie he wore was supposedly to loud) Yet the same people who bashed him ignore the numberous Obama's gaffes, lies, hypocrisy, broken promises & exaggerations!

Well the other day President Obama made the statement: 'Why should a billionaire pay the same tax as a Jew?' when he supposedly meant to use the word janitor instead of Jew. Had President Bush said something like that...the ultraliberals would have been marching in the street with cries of he is anti-semtic and the New York Times would have put out a special edition saying Bush screwed up again.

No wonder President Obama uses a telepromter for a 3 sentence statement or even to talk to school kids.

^^^^
cheers mack

without taking any sides, ultra or otherwise......
what a shame when something like that happens to any person, least of all to a president (Bush or Obama)




i hate it when that happens.
you know, when you want to say something important but the other stuff you have been thinking about overrides your thoughts,
and you blurt out the wrong infomation.... Embarassed

can't say it happens to me all that much, but to people as busy as presidents....well, who knows. scratch




the silly fool, you would think that he would have memorised his speech before he went in front of the cameras (or whatever media) lol!

I hate when that happens to...as Bob Dylan once said Even the President must sometimes naked. So my thread is not so much about about President Obama having a slip of the tongue but more so how the profit driven media responds to it vrs Bush.

Anyhow back to my FAV subject....ME...this was not a slip of the tongue but something similair. I went to a 'wake' with one of my exgirl friends. I met her cousin (daughter of the deceased) for the first time, almost right in front of the casket. For some reason I started smile'n at her and couldn't stop.

this happens everywhere, and it is horrible.
one person will make a mistake, and before you know it, they are being compared to their adversaries.

not the best thing to do.

and yes, it is usually the media that rakes all the crap out....

I didn't find the video for this:

Big brother representative: Now, Mr. Simpson, may I ask why you're here?

Homer's brain: Don't say revenge. Don't say revenge.

Homer: Ummm... revenge?

Homer's brain: Okay, that's it. I'm outta here. (step step step step step...slam)
