"We have fewer ships than we did in 1916. Well governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets,” said President Barack Obama in response to Gov. Mitt Romney's assertion that “our Navy is smaller now than at any time since 1917.”
That "horses and bayonet" comment hit Twitter and took off. It didn’t hit the top trending items for a little while, possibly because of different spellings of the word "bayonet."
So, where did that remark come from?
If you check cavalrymenforromney.com, you will find a drawing of a tired looking cavalryman with a Romney campaign flag. The site links to an Obama campaign site. A check of the domain registry shows that the domain was created at 7:51 p.m. EST, which is before the debate started at 9 p.m.
