Here is a interesting number from CNN post debate poll one question was is Obama/Romney qualified to handle foreign policy the numbers were almost identical with about 63% saying Obama was and 60% saying Romney was that was the main thing Romney had to accomplish tonight.
Romney said we have fewer ships than in 1916. Obama said we also have fewer horses and bayonets.
Technology has moved us on to things called aircraft carriers, and nuclear submarines.
The final debate between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney was bound to spawn a meme or two in in the hours after the debate. But actually, it only took a few minutes for the Internet to latch on to the zinger of all zingers. After Romney criticized the administration by claiming that the United States Navy has fewer ships today than it did in 1916, Obama seized the moment.
"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," said the president. "We have these things called aircraft carriers and planes land on them. We have ships that go underwater, nuclear submarines." Obama drove the point home, "It's not a game of Battleship where we're counting ships, it's 'What are our priorities?'"
