Horses and Bayonets: President Obama Gives Mitt Romney a Wake-Up Call About Our Military
The last and final presidential debate between President Barack Obama and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney was just as sharp and barbed as the second townhall debate.
Though the theme of the debate was supposed to center on foreign policy, Romney and Obama just couldn’t help but keep talking about domestic issues like our military spending.
Mitt Romney griped about how the Navy has far fewer ships today than it did 10 years ago.
President Obama, in a masterful death blow, hammered Mitt’s clueless ship counting by pointing out, “You mention the Navy, for example, and the fact that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. Well governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets,” Obama said. “We have these things called aircraft carriers and planes land on them. We have ships that go underwater, nuclear submarines.”
Watch President Obama deliver this clobbering line in a clip from the debate below:
Dear Mitt Romney, do not pass go. Do not collect $200. President Obama has snatched the shit out of your salt and pepper toupée.
That has to be the most epic slice of presidential shade ever.
Watch the throne, y’all.
