Obama Lost Debate By Mocking Romney With Bayonets And Aircraft Carrier Comment (Video)

Here is President Obama being not acting Presidential after Mitt Romney expressed real concerns about the state of our military.

During Monday’s third and final presidential debate, Mitt Romney attacked the Obama administration for advocating for cuts to the military when some aspects of the armed forces are out of date or undermanned. President Barack Obama challenged Romney’s assertion, lacking knowledge about precisely what forces the military needs and proceeded to explain that the military now has weapons systems like aircraft carriers and submarines.

“Our Navy is smaller now than at any time since 1917,” said Romney. “The Navy said they needed 313 ships to carry out their mission. We’re now at 285.”

“I think Gov. Romney maybe has not spent enough time looking at how our military works,” Obama shot back. “We also have fewer horses and bayonets because nature of our military has changed. “There are these things called aircraft carriers where planes land on them. We have these ships that go underwater, nuclear submarines.”

“The question is not a game of Battleship, where we’re counting ships, it’s what are our capabilities,” Obama concluded.

This is when Obama lost the debate.For more wrap up check out Hot Air.

  1. CBS snap poll says otherwise: 53% said Obama won to only 23% for Romney. 24% said it was a draw. West Wing Report said it was Obama's second best and Romney's worst performance.

    • You said it: "c BS"

      …Currently, there are twice the number of Horses and mules in the MILITARY than there were in 1917 (The President did say "1917") and, three times the number of bayonets. Please have him note: that as reflected by the 9/11 memorial "De Opresso Libre", the special forces have been using horses for long range reconnaissance patrol since the first days after 9/11 and there is a permanent detachment of "Horse Marines" on recon with an even greater number of Horses and Mules.

      Currently, there are also three times the number of bayonets on inventory in the Military than in 1917 not counting the number that are owned and carried by individuals. It is a standard issue item for combat troops or can be used at will by non combat troops. Most Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Airmen choose to have at least one and Marines usually have two or more of varying types regardless of MOS.

      I hope this proves helpful in showing the out of touch ineptitude of our Commander on Sheik.

  2. Early polls are saying Obama won. Looks like he is going to get four more years. Well, Romeny tried hard. He gave it his best.

  3. Oh come on Todd, Romney, who I will be voting for, is kind of a doofus and to be frank he is often his own worst enemy. Overall Obama has been extremely professional , and I would venture to slightly more statesman than Romney. I thought Obama won tonight, although he still isn't getting my vote

  4. Obama is a tool. The SecNav has said that the Navy needs 315 ships. Ships are those things that aircraft land on and those other funny shaped things that go underwater. More of them means that we can be in more places at once, have more forces in place, and/or reduce how much time our ships/sailors/Marines spend deployed. Not to mention that our Benghazi staff probably would have appreciated having a carrier battle group cruising the Med on 9/11/12. Sequestration is something Obama signed into law as part of the lame budget deal, so for him to dismiss it as something that isn't going to happen is completely disingenuous.

  5. Saw a google search result for a blog called "Blue Collar Philosophy." Was not disappointed when the first sentence began, "Here is President Obama being not acting presidential…"
