"Horses and Bayonets"


How many times did Mitt Romney mention our troops?  Zero times. Mitt Romney once again showed his lack of respect for our men and women in uniform.

LA Times:

If Mitt Romney’s foreign policy was an unknown to average voters, President Obama came to the table for the third presidential debate ready to sum it up in one word: dated....

....“And the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because, you know, the Cold War's been over for 20 years,” Obama said, reviving a bit of snark he’s used on the campaign trail. “But, governor, when it comes to our foreign policy, you seem to want to import the foreign policies of the 1980s, just like the social policies of the 1950s and the economic policies of the 1920s.”...

....“Governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets because the nature of our military's changed. We have these things called aircraft carriers where planes land on them. We have these ships that go underwater, nuclear submarines,” he said. “And so the question is not a game of Battleship where we're counting ships. It's — it's what are our capabilities.”

Mitt Romney clearly is not prepared to be the Commander-in-Chief of our military. Romney doesn't even respect them and wants to privatize veterans health care.

I think POTUS just sank Romney's battleship
