A Jew and A Janitor Walk Into a Presidential Speech

No less than the Los Angeles Times is noticing the Obamagaffes now.  This is nothing more than a slip of the tongue but the interesting thing is that it's happening more often and it's getting noticed;
Here is what the president actually said, catching himself almost in time but not quite:

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.

The president has been muffing lines all over the place recently. Last week, also peddling his jobs plan at a bridge that won't qualify, he hailed America's building of "the Intercontinental Railroad." You don't seem to hear much about these gaffes in the media for some reason.
For some reason?  We all know what that reason is - partisanship hyper-partisanship.  Nevertheless seeing it in a major publication is not a small deal.  Perhaps it's also not a coincidence.  The left is growing impatient with 'their guy'.  Given that he's gone into campaign mode, I can see things like this happening more often for him.  He'll be busy with trying to govern while trying to run and he'll get tired.  He'll make more mistakes and they'll get noticed more often.
