Correct. That was a pretty dumb thing Romney said. Somebody gave him a poorly-thought-out talking point, and sure enough he talked it without burdening himself with any thinking. The President pointed out the obvious, that you don't compute naval strength simply by counting up on your fingers the number of ships. As with horses and bayonets, we have fewer ships than the combined British navy and Spanish Armada of the 16th century -- but what do you think would happen if the whole of both fleets went up against one aircraft carrier?
