Obama Strikes Out in VA:
'Battleship,' 'Horses and Bayonets,'
Sequester Walk Back

Breitbart's Big Government, by Michael Patrick Leahy

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 10/23/2012 8:55:18 AM

The defining moments of Monday's foreign policy debate came halfway through the evening, when President Obama struck himself out--especially in Virginia--with three pitches aimed at Mitt Romney that boomeranged. These ill advised lines will come back to haunt him over the final two weeks of the campaign: 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.

That was probably the most condescending moment of a long four years of condescension from the Empty Chair, and a low point for the peevish president.

Possibly the wretched ghost of Momar Quadaffi could brief the pResident about his experience with the various uses of bayonets still being employed when leaders horrify their citizens.

"Well, Governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets, (emphasis added to second strike) 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."

>> Of course, BHO ignores that the oceans aren't getting any smaller. Further, the reduction in the size of the US Navy has not only emboldened piracy from the Horn of Africa to the South China Sea, but it has also emboldened China to assert its naval presence in Asia against Japan, the Philippines, Vietnam and any other potential challengers.

In addition, those aircraft carriers BHO talks about, we have far fewer of them than we did 10 years ago, and we fly far fewer strike/fighter aircraft off of them.

The Obambi naval policy seems to emulate his regular activities. And empty chair and an empty sea, the only thing consistant with Obambi.

Everyone knows that Obie the community activist knows nothing, zero, about the military.

He probably had to study hardest on that for last night's debate.

It showed. Once he started his various memorized recitations, he was loathe to stop because he was afraid he'd lose his place in his canned narrative.

I can understand in the heat of debate where POTUS can come across as snarky and disrespectful to the challenger. But since I like Romney better, I'll make a snarky remark to POTUS:

1. Battleships go ON the water.
2. Submarines go IN the water.
3. No naval vessel that I know of goes UNDER the water.

This moment needs to be part of an ad. It's so fully of nonsense and dripping with condescension for, not only Romney, but disdain for our Navy too.

The Democrats are loving it today, but they should wish it never happened. Maybe Karl Rove's group has the stones to do it.

At the Alfred E. Smith dinner last week, Romney opened his line of psychological warfare on Obama. Last night he aptly reminded Obama that he (Romney) had gotten deep inside that skull of arrogance and false pride. You could see the look on Obama's face that told Romney he had won.

Watch Romney "fire" Obama-Mao sweetly...and Obama knows he has been fired as he stumbles about trying to convince us he should stay "on the job" at the White House for another 4 years.

Me, I've been miserable for these past four years...I don't want to go on like this for another four...do you?

When Pres. Jefferson found in necessary to sort out the A-rabs in Tripoli, hesent Marines with bayonets and they still use them.

The Tidewater area of Virginia has always been a pro-Republican military enclave so he didn't hurt himself among the shipbuilding/repair industry there. But its rural compared to the DC suburbs in the north. Like many other states, Virginia's electoral votes go the way of its urban concentrate.

If these workers and all those who get trickle down largesse from those who have these great jobs don't get it, then they deserve to reelect the guy who will can all of them. Or at best relegate them to part time jobs with no benefits.

Axlerod, the son of communists, is so excited about the whole 1920's, backward, strategy that I'm sure they thought they had a winner with the horses and bayonets line. As usual, it is all just another theory like expensive gasoline will shift America to a bright, 'green' future that 'saves' the planet and provides millions of great jobs. All it requires is four more years and tens of trillions of new dollars.

I wonder what Obama was thinking when he mentioned subs and carriers. Neither one is a new development. Subs were at sea before Romney's 1917 benchmark. (Do you suppose Obama has heard about the Lusitania?) And carriers have been in the world's navies for what, seventy-five years? So what's the game-changer?

Obama was probably briefed on something, and muddled it.

When 0bama was campaigning in 2008 he said he would make the seas retreat. Now, 2012, we have fewer Navy ships and so by the lack of weight/presence of those Navy ships the seas are once again rising. Perfect (non)sense, right?

Before the Obama administration gave an inaccurate narrative on national television that the Benghazi attacks grew from an anti-American protest, the CIA’s station chief in Libya pointedly told his superiors in Washington that no such demonstration occurred, documents and interviews with current and former intelligence officials show. The attack was “not an escalation of protests,” the station chief wrote to then-Deputy CIA Director Michael J. Morell in an email dated Sept. 15, 2012 — a full day before the White House sent Susan E. Rice to several Sunday talk shows to disseminate talking points claiming that the Benghazi attack began

A flood of corruption scandals involving state and local Democratic Party lawmakers is threatening to muddy the party’s image as it enters what was already a tough election cycle. In a week Democrats won’t soon forget, the Democrat-dominated California Senate took the unprecedented step Friday of voting 28-1 to suspend with pay three state senators in their own party accused or convicted of criminal conduct. State Sen. Leland Yee was arrested Wednesday on federal gun trafficking and corruption charges. Sen. Ron Calderon pleaded not guilty Feb. 24 to charges of influence-peddling, and Sen.

Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

More than half of the 2.6 million Americans dispatched to fight the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan struggle with physical or mental health problems stemming from their service, feel disconnected from civilian life and believe the government is failing to meet the needs of this generation’s veterans, according to a poll conducted by The Washington Post and the Kaiser Family Foundation. The long conflicts, which have required many troops to deploy multiple times and operate under an almost constant threat of attack, have exacted a far more widespread emotional toll than previously recognized by most government studies and independent assessments:

Military officials said they are investigating the conduct of a U.S. Marine who was on assignment for President Obama’s trip to the Netherlands last week, after witnesses said he was talking in detail about his job and passing around his government security badge during a night of drinking at a bar. The Marine, Korey Nathan Pritchett, was first identified by a Dutch newspaper based on witness accounts and smartphone photos taken during the partying, which happened two nights before Obama arrived at The Hague for a nuclear security summit. The Washington Post confirmed and expanded on that reporting through interviews,

TBILISI, Georgia Halfway through an otherwise coherent conversation with a Georgian lawyer here — the topics included judges, the court system, the police — I was startled by a comment he made about his country’s former government, led by then-president Mikheil Saakashvili. “They were LGBT,” he said, conspiratorially. What did that mean, I asked, surprised. Were they for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights? For gay marriage? Were they actually gay? He couldn’t really define it, though the conversation meandered in that direction for a few more minutes, also touching on the subject of the former president’s alleged marital infidelity,

Democrat Rep. Nancy Pelosi just might be a racist monster who wants to murder live children for the sake of eliminating “undesirables.” Why would I say such an outrageous thing? Because Pelosi has accepted an award named for Margaret Sanger. And Margaret Sanger was definitely a racist monster who advocated murdering live children for the sake of eliminating “undesirables.” Quote: The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it. That’s advocating child murder. It’s not racist, but we’re not done. Sanger considered racial minorities to be “human weeds.” In context,

Barring a miraculous upsurge in President Obama’s dismal 41% approval rating, Hillary Clinton’s run for president in 2016 will be a steep uphill climb. Clinton will need to walk a political tight rope, distancing herself from Obama without coming across as a disloyal member of the president’s political coterie. "Secretary Clinton is distancing herself a bit on foreign policy matters from the administration recently," said John Hudak, a Brookings Institution fellow and expert on presidential campaigns. "This is a pretty standard practice for anyone looking to succeed the sitting president, even within the same party." Nevertheless, Hillary enjoys the fruits

A federal appeals court Thursday handed women in Texas a big win by upholding health and safety regulations that had been challenged by Planned Parenthood. Last year Texas passed a law that requires abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at a hospital no more than 30 miles from where the abortion is provided. The appeals court quoted a board-certified Ob/Gyn who explained that requiring admitting and staff privileges “provides a more thorough evaluation mechanism of physician competency” and “acknowledges and enables the importance of continuity of care.” The appeals court explained that the “specter of Dr. Kermit Gosnell” informed the

Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees.
