Gaffetastic!… Obama Flubs His Military Attacks on Mitt Romney (Video)

Poor Barack Obama.
He tried to be slick and attack Mitt Romney on on the military – but ended up humiliating himself.
Here are his snide remarks during the debate:

“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.”

Now here’s the truth…
Marines still use bayonets.
Horses were used by the military during the Iraq invasion.

Obama also does not know the difference between a ship and a boat.
Submarines are boats – not ships.
What an embarrassment.

More… Again, US Marines still use bayonets.

Via Pseud O’Nym

Still More… Bayonets at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

    A ship that goes under the water is called a wreck

  • Spider

    Reducing the strength of our military can’t be defended, so Obama trying to do it backfired.

  • nathan

    Obama’s ship…err…boat is sinking!

  • Ohio Dan

    It should be noted that other countries have ships, subs planes and not all of them are our friends.

  • Mari

    Ahhh yea….Bayonets are standard issue to Marines. Coming from a Veteran…USMC..Semper Fi

  • Buffalobob

    obma tried to school us on the military. Got it all wrong. I don’t think Valery Jarrett was ever in the ROTC. Who started to cackle in the audience? Was it mooshell again?

    O was trying to be condescending to Mitt re military — like he was out of touch and ill-informed, but it backfired. Big time.

    Best moment of the night “Criticizing me is not a policy”

    Did anyone notice how obama was larger in the frame during the entire debate?

    I think it was a calculated move on the part of some sympathizing producer. But it backfired.

    o looked not just imposing, as was the intention, but mean and bullying.

    Best line of night…

    “When you went on your apology tour of the middle east, and went to Egypt, Saudi Arabia…but you skipped Israel, Nd but the way Israel knew you skipped them….”‘ then the Obozo talks about how BEFORE he was elected how he went there and visited a museum….omg, what a stupid defense. the sanctions did NOT work moron, Iran has more enriched uranium than four years ago!!!!!

    Bone headded move to mock the navy when you need states like VA and have a close Senate race in CT where the Coast guard Academy is located and the submarine bases.

  • Navy Vet

    I was offended by the “Bayonets” comment. The man has no understanding of the role the Navy plays in our National Defense.

  • Militant Conservative

    Gonna be hard to cover Obama’s obvious snotty comments and undignified

    Ghetto attitude. Your foward kool aid drinkers will vote for you but

    the American public that is out of work by large will not.

    powder is dry

    For the record, Marines still use bayonets.

    All U.S. ground forces still use the bayonet.

    In the army, it’s the M9.
