The Incredible Shrinking, Small and Factually Incorrect President … “we also have fewer horses and bayonets … We have these ships that go underwater, nuclear submarines”
Barack Obama, the Snark in Chief …
Tonight during the third and final Presidential debate, Barack Obama showed why we call his the “Lost in Smallness” president. I am not sure if a president ever acted so small, trite and petty ever before in a debate. In an attempt to humiliate and diminish Romney, Obama acted a fool and beneath of Office and was factually incorrect when he made the snide, wise-a$$ comment, “we also have fewer horses and bayonets … We have these ships that go underwater, nuclear submarines” How contemptuous could Obama be? It is no wonder that Obama can get nothing done with a President like this.
OBAMA: But I think Governor Romney maybe hasn’t spent enough time looking at how our military works.
You mentioned the Navy, for example, and that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. Well, Governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets, because the nature of our military’s changed. We have these things called aircraft carriers, where planes land on them. We have these ships that go underwater, nuclear submarines.
OBAMA: And so the question is not a game of Battleship, where we’re counting slips. It’s what are our capabilities. And so when I sit down with the Secretary of the Navy and the Joint Chiefs of Staff, we determine how are we going to be best able to meet all of our defense needs in a way that also keeps faith with our troops, that also makes sure that our veterans have the kind of support that they need when they come home.
Lets get a couple of facts straight here.
3. Since when has Obama ever sat down and determined military strategy with those in the know and generals on the ground? Obama called for time tables for withdrawals for political reasons, rather than winning a war.
