Funniest [so-called debate] exchange of the night

with 7 comments


Bring them all back home!

Romney: “Our Navy is smaller now than at any time since 1917. The Navy said they needed 313 ships to carry out their mission. We’re now at under 285…We’re headed down to the low 200s if we go through a sequestration. That’s unacceptable to me.”

Obama: “You mentioned the Navy, for example, and that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. Well, 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.”

My one-line comment on American foreign policy? Close down all our foreign bases and bring our troops home!

2nd-line? Putting them to work on rebuilding our tawdry infrastructure requires half the budget dollars of supporting them abroad.

  1. 2 local comments on the process:

    Early voting in New Mexico running higher than the record set in 2008 election. Exit polls put Obama 22 points ahead in Bernalillo County – state’s biggest.

    Paul Ryan spoke, today, at Ft, Lewis college in Durango, CO. Pulled a crowd of 500. Michelle Obama was there a couple weeks ago and the fire marshall capped the crowd at 3500.

    Nuff said.

  2. Your two-line comment on foreign policy makes more sense than all the foreign policy “experts” put together.

  3. Mr Eideard

    Again you have displayed un-American thinking. Bring the troops home and the terrorists win. I’ts not rocket science (or any kind of science for that matter).

    Why do you hate America?

    • I don’t hate America. Just Manchester United.
