Hi, Jeff. Romney was correct to tie a strong defense to a strong economy.
The only reason Obama is worried about bayonets and battleships is because with his killer economy we can’t afford them.
I doubt Obama has ever held a bayonet, much less fixed one.His comment about the world has changed is BS. Influence is and always will be enforced by “boots on the ground”, And the WILL to shed blood. Which has more to do with “horses and bayonets” than “ships and airplanes”. The later approach is Bill Clinton’s way to wage war from five miles high, to avoid criticism for US casualties.
Cart / horse.
The only reason for "Bread to the Masses" politics is to deprive the Forces of Reaction of the resources necessary to maintain their militaries, thus opening the door to violent revolution by the vanguard leadership.
Coffeehouse pukes and layabouts, getting other people to kill still other people so they can take power and have May Day parades. Great.
