Obama confusing Jews and janitors

In a recent speech President Obama said,
If asking a billionaire to pay the same tax rate as a Jew, uh, as a janitor makes me a warrior for the working class, I wear that with a badge of honor. I have no problem with that.
No big deal. It's just a slip of the tongue. But if Michelle Bachmann had made the same slip you can bet your bottom dollar that it would have been on NBC, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, many of the major newspapers and all of the liberal blogs--and most of them would have been charging her with anti-Semitism.

Considering 47% of Americans do not pay any federal income tax, I'd be willing to bet most billionaires would be glad to pay the taxes of a jew.. ah, I mean janitor.
