Romney-Ryan ticket hits Obama admin on Ohio made tanks (Biden: "We donít need more M1 tanks")

Lancaster, Ohio – The Romney-Ryan campaign has seized on Vice President Joe Biden's assertion during Thursday's debate that Ohio-made M1 Abrams tanks are no longer needed. The GOP ticket began running radio ads and making automated phone calls in Ohio on Friday featuring the vice president's quote, according to Republican state communications director Chris Maloney.

"The military says we need a smaller, leaner Army. We need more special forces. ...We don’t need more M1 tanks. What we need is more UAVs,” Biden said while he sat opposite of Republican vice presidential nominee Rep. Paul Ryan, at the debate in Lexington, Ky. The vice president's words, which broke no new policy ground, were a reminder of the Pentagon's decision this year to halt the production line from 2014 to 2017 as the vehicle is redesigned.

Ohio is home to the only tank production site in the country, and M1 tanks were spotlighted during Ryan's first joint appearance with Mitt Romney after the vice presidential debate.

I can’t see Ohio going for Obama, unless they can conjur up 500,000 faux votes.

There was so much that could have been used against ol’wacko Jo.

I would have made a big deal about him voting against the original Alaskan Oil Pipeline and the Obama administration blocking the job creating and energy producing Keystone Oil Pipeline.

No tanks? How big was Libya to Syria again? How many people live in Syria vs Libya? UAV’s can’t win out in either situation.

This is why I support voting on election day
when possible. Besides much more powerful feeling than filling out piece of paper.

The best time to have a tank(s) is when the other guy does not. When he does, you better have them too or you are toast.

“We don’t need more tanks”, said Crazy Joe. “That’s money the Democrat party could use to buy votes.”

I’ll make Crazy Joe a deal. No more money for tanks if he sends the welfare recipients to fight in Afghanistan. They want that taxpayer money....then earn it. And Crazy Joe can be on point.

To plagiarize GEN George Smith Patton: “Joe Biden knows as much about M1 tanks as he does about fornicating.”
