Obama vs. Romney: "Well, Governor we also have fewer horses and bayonets"
2012 Presidential debate, October 22, 2012, Lynn University, Boca Raton, Florida

“The budgets that we are talking about is not reducing our military spending. It is maintaining it. 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. And so the question is not a game of Battleship, where we’re counting ships. It’s what are our capabilities.” – President Barack Obama, debate with former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, Lynn University, Boca Raton, Florida, October 22, 2012
