Also, one other thing I wanted to mention, during the last debate, he made the infamous “horses and bayonets” comment:
See this excerpt from the LA Times:
“The Army has 419,155 bayonets in its current inventory, Army spokesman Wayne V. Hall said Tuesday. The Marine Corps plans to buy 175,061 bayonets this year, in addition to the 195,334 bayonets it bought in 2004, said Captain Kendra N. Motz, a Marine spokeswoman. Even assuming some were lost or damaged in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the military probably has more than 600,000 bayonets on hand.”
And, check out this picture:
That’s the tomb of the unknown soldier in Arlington Cemetery, VA. Do you see what’s on the end of his rifle? Oh! It’s a bayonet! And, as we speak, there is a guard marching those 21 steps back and forth in front of the tomb, just like there has been 24/7 since 1937. Even while hurricane Sandy is whipping through the capitol, those bayonet armed guards are going to stay there, guarding the tomb and honoring the United States of America.
