    Too funny! From part of the article:


    According to the official U.S. Marine Corps website, every Marine is STILL required to complete a bayonet training program … because “the weapon becomes just as effective [as a rifle] in close combat situations.”

    We spoke with Dan Riker from Bayonet Inc. — a leading military surplus outlet that specializes in bayonets — who tells us he believes Obama’s comment was “ignorant … because our soldiers still use bayonets.”

    He adds, “[Bayonets] are still distributed to the military all the time — he should get educated on it.”

    Libs really look like assholes over this. I love it!

    Do Democrats who loved Obama's little joke even realize Romney was simply repeating what Obama's own Def Sec Said? It was Panetta who first used the WWI analogy.

    Except he never said they didn't use bayonets or horses, just not as many. Why do y'all keep insisting on being ridiculous about this point?

    Don't be too hard on Obama. He has great respect for our corpsemen.

    "Libs" would look like assholes if the president had said none. He didn't.

    Do you think there are more, the same or fewer bayonets and horses in use by the military today than we're used in 1916?
