Obama, Biden inspect “ships that go underwater”
October 23, 2012 2 Comments
Monday night’s foreign policy debate only continues the existing trend. Mitt Romney came off as measured, composed, and presidential, while President Barack Obama, pressing with a desperate and full bore attack, looked a little more petty and a little less presidential.
The horses and bayonets dig has backfired, now that folks from Chuck Todd to Tim Cotton have attested to the utility of those helps in modern warfare.
What really got me though was the part about “ships that go underwater.” Our Commander-in-Chief was by a magnitude of order too self-satisfied in letting off that salvo. He sounded like he really thought he was talking to a five year old.
A pundit with some military smarts was quick to inform that submarines are referred to in the American Navy as “boats,” not “ships” as the President claimed. Oh well, what could we expect from a President who doesn’t know how essential bayonets are to the Marine “Corpse?”
