The Background: Ignoring the claim that the Navy doesn't want to have less ships than in 1916 during the third debate, President Obama also ignored the fact that the military has over 400,000 bayonets and that they're still used in hand to hand combat, and that submarines are not classified as ships.
But I think Governor Romney maybe hasn't spent enough time looking at how our military works. 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.
