By inserting the word "business", he made a fairly serious error, but it was likely just an inadvertent error.

HOWEVER, the entire statement is pretty misleading and easily blown to hell. He compares bankruptcies under Obama to Carter to argue, effectively, that THINGS ARE EVEN WORSE NOW THAN THEY WERE UNDER CARTER!!!!11 GIGGITY!!

Ignoring that bankruptcies of all types peaked in 2005 at over 2 million under George Bush. I therefore absolve him from his original crime but indict him for a different one.
Inadvertent? I'm not sure why you would be so charitable. What would make you think it was inadvertent?
