GOP Majority Leader slur leads nightly news, but when it's Obama ...

... nary a word.

Back in 1995 you may recall then-Majority Leader Dick Armey let slip an anti-gay slur towards Barney Frank: He [supposedly] accidentally said "Barney Fag." I recall that evening at least one major nightly newscast -- ABC's -- led with the story with the byline somewhere along the lines of our leaders "should know better."

Fast forward to 2011. President Obama, speaking at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation gala Saturday evening, said the following:

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 honor.

Heard about that in the MSM yet? Cheeyeah, right. But hey -- at least he's keeping in line with the rantings of his pastor.

I think Obama is a good president. This is my opinion, nothing personal
