Obama to Romney:
But I think Gov. Romney maybe hasn’t spent enough time looking at how our military works. You mention the Navy, and how we have fewer ships than 1916. We also have fewer horses and bayonets, because the nature of our military has changed. We have aircraft carriers; we have ships that go underwater; nuclear submarines.
And so the question is not a game of ‘Battleship’ where we’re counting ships. It’s: What are our capabilities?
