New Team Romney Ad: US Navy Equals Strength

Last night Obama thought he was being really clever with his "horses and bayonets" line. Today, Team Mitt shoves back with a new ad highlighting the importance of naval power to America's military strength.

I'm not sure where it's going to air but Virginia, Florida and New Hampshire are big Navy states. Oh and they also happen to be key battle ground states. I hope Obama enjoyed his snark while it lasted.

The "horses and bayonets" line was probably the most divisive of the night. Liberals loved it and conservatives rolled their eyes.

Obama says Romney doesn't understand the qualitative nature of today's Navy when he focuses on the quantity of ships in the fleet. Well, Obama and liberals ignore that there's as much ocean today as there was in in 1917 but we have far, far more global interests and responsibilities. For all the wonderful advancements in technology in the last century, we still haven't figure out how to get a ship in more than one place at one time.

Quality matters but so does quantity. Just ask sailors and their families who are looking at longer and more frequent deployments thanks to Obama's ship building deficit.

I'm open to listening to people who want to cut the Navy but first they must tell me what missions they will forgo and what areas of the globe they will ignore. Without that, you are simply asking the Navy to do more with less and that won't work for long.
