Obama compares naval ships to horses and bayonets; Twitter explodes in snark-storm; Marines fact check Obama

Barack Obama got a Twitter drubbing tonight as a result of comparing US Navy ships to obsolete war horses and bayonets.

Oh, right, he was being prepped by John Kerry. Never mind.

Of course, not everyone thought Obama’s insult was a bad thing.

Well, there goes whatever chance she had of going on a USO tour any time soon.
