|Tomb of the Unknown|
- Smugging Chicago street hustler vs accomplished CEO and former gob'ner.
- Sarcastic Oval office bully loosed without his handlers vs adult national leader.
I reckon it all culminated with Obamanation's smarmy and sarcastic retort to Romney's comments regarding the decreasing strength of our US Navy. His little zinger some staff weenie prepared for him.
"Governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets, the nature of our military has changed. We have these things called aircraft carriers where planes land on them. We have ships that go under water: nuclear submarines."
I realize that BO has only found enough non-golf course time to visit the Tomb of the Unknown in Washington, mebbe once in the last four years --- but if he had looked around, he would have seen those guards with those pointy things at the end of their rifles. Those are called bayonets, Mr POTUS. I doubt that there is an active, retired or buried Army or Marine grunt that hasn't fixed his bayonet at least once as he served in Iraq, Afghanistan, 'Nam, Korea, and all of the other places they were sent into harms way by US Presidents in the last 235 years....
And now, apparently, also in the embassies and consulates in troubled countries as they try to save lives with no help from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
BTW, I may be an Air Force vet..... but even I know that a ship that goes under water is called 'sunk' ......... submarines are called boats!
It's gone past arrogance and embarrassment, like Michelle Antoinette says in the post right below this one..... it's time to get out and vote -- the toilets are overflowing......
