NAPOLITANO: What I’d say to the American people is that we are — uh, and thousands of people are — working 24/7, 364 days a year to keep the American people safe.
RUSH: What is the one day they are not working to keep people safe? It can’t be Ramadan because that’s like a month. What is the one day? Well, she said “24/7, 364 days a year.” (interruption) No, because in leap years it would be two days. It would be 366. Election Day? Maybe it’s Election Day. Martin Luther King Day? What day are they not working to keep us safe? Obviously here a… What would you call this? A gaffe. And so on Morning Joe today, Andrea Mitchell (NBC News, Washington) they were talking about this gaffe, 364 days a year to protect the people.
Scarborough said, “Help us out here, Andrea.” (impression) You know, I come from the No Labels group, and I don’t know what 364 means anymore because we don’t believe in labels and numbers are labels. So what is she talking about here? “So, if Janet Napolitano says we’re not going to have to worry about terrorism because we’ve got people working 364 days out of the year…” By the way, Joe, you’re a No Labels guy. What are you doing talking about “terrorists” for? Isn’t that a label? I’m distracting myself. So, if Janet Napolitano says we’re not going to have to worry about terrorism because we’ve got people working 364 days out of the year are they giving us a heads up to let us know the day they’re all taking off so I can keep my family home?”
