Paul Ryan Sank His Battleship!

In the final presidential debate, President Obama delivered the line of the campaign season!

 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 has changed.  We have these things called aircraft carriers where planes land on them, we have these ships that go under water, nuclear submarines, and so the question is not a game of battleship where we’re counting ships, it’s what are our capabilities.

We all know Paul Ryan lost his one debate vs. Joe Biden, and  while Ryan was weak across the board, he was particularly weak in the area of foreign policy.   After last nights debate, Paul felt like giving us a refresher course on just what a lightweight he is!

“To compare modern American battleships with bayonets, I just don’t understand that comparison,” the Wisconsin Republican said. “Look, we have to have a strong Navy to keep peace and prosperity.” “If all these defense cuts go through, our Navy will be small than it was before World War I,” Ryan continued. “That’s not acceptable. And, yes, the ocean hasn’t shrunk.”

Umm Paul, do you ever do any homework? The last US battleships, USS Wisconsin and USS Missouri,[12] were decommissioned in 1991 and 1992, and finally stricken from the U.S. Naval Vessel Register in 2006 and 1995, respectively.
Paul I know it was a while ago, but you should probably remember that Mitt Romney announced you as his VP pick on the DECOMMISIONED USS Wisconsin.

PS:  Psssst Paul, the Pacific Ocean is shrinking!
