“You mention the Navy,for example,and the fact that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. Well governor,we also have fewer horses and bayonets,” Obama said during the final presidential debate. “We have these things called aircraft carriers and planes land on them. We have ships that go underwater, nuclear submarines.”
“It’s not a game of battleship where we’re counting ships,it’s ‘What are our priorities?'” he said.

That biting comment by President Obama “mind-f**ked” Romney for a few minutes. Romney’s face reddened and it tightened so much that his lips disappeared and the corners of mouth whitened (review the video).
At another point, Mitt’s eyes narrowed and he bit his lower lip so hard that a white spot developed that looked like he was beginning to foam at the mouth.
Tonight was a national public spanking of Mitt Romney by President Obama.
The white power right and Tea Party are probably incensed by President Obama’s backhanding of Romney tonight.
President Obama’s command of foreign policy was impressive and factual.
Was President Obama presidential in tonight’s debate on foreign policy?
