Maybe because so many people called 911 that day?
Maybe because it was a really big national emergency?
Or maybe, just maybe, because it happened on September 11, 2001.
(For those of you who are math impaired, September is the 9th month of the year in the Gregorian calendar)
Well, Josh Earnest, White House spokesperson, can't seem to remember that. Ok, you will say. He misspoke. It happens to the best of us. True. But if your job is to speak publicly on issues important to the United States people, wouldn't you think that the defining moment in the life of anyone over the age of twenty five might be when two airliners crashed into the World Trade Center after being hijacked by Islamist terrorists should be something you could get right? How do you get that wrong?
Take a look at the 0:43 second mark in the following video from Real Clear Politics.
You get to see Josh Earnest state that 9/11 attacks happened on September 1st. Hey, we all make mistakes, but when you are on the left you get a pass. When you are on the right, it is proof that you are an idiot.
