    Daily Kos: Romney pulls size of Navy comment directly from ass

    From Mitt Romney's speech at VMI (sorry, veterans like myself don't consider VMI some great bastion of military heritage, today it's where either legacies have to go or wayward kids get sent) today:

    "The size of our Navy is at levels not seen since 1916. I will restore our Navy to the size needed to fulfill our missions by building 15 ships per year, including three submarines."

    As straight to the point as I can make it, he pulled this from his ass: More below rolled up band aid.

    Where is the money going to come from for these new ships and submarines that Willard proposes?

    Suggests?

    Romney's been collecting Bushies for his cabinet. John Bolton has been advising him on foreign policy.

    I particularly was amused by his "submarine" thing. It's a grab for Virginia votes pure and simple. Submarines are a wholly ineffective weapons system. Their only possible use is for missile launches from sea..but ships to a much better job.

    How do you expect to ever get the full story relying on such biased sources as Kos?
