Obama’s “Horses and Bayonets”
President Barack Obama mocked Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney on Monday for his repeated attack over the size of the Navy, which he has said proves the president doesn’t prioritize national defense.
“You mention the Navy, for example, and that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. Well governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets,” Obama said during the presidential debate. “We have these things called aircraft carriers and planes land on them. We have these ships that go underwater, nuclear submarines.”
It is understandable why the President doesn’t like bayonets, he prefers the big guns. The Nobel Peace prize laureate has preferred to use drones in his barrage of unconstitutional wars. What good are bayonets and horses to a man who cowardly launches drones against third world countries, like the 254 drones against Pakistan. When the debate came down to how we will protect our military, the President said, “Neigh.” He continues to demonstrate his ineptitude as commander-in-chief.
