President Obama’s “horses and bayonets” comment created the most buzz after Monday’s presidential debate, as he tried to paint Governor Mitt Romney as out of touch with the U.S. military’s needs in the 21st century. Romney accuses the president of cutting spending and is calling for more Navy ships.
In the key battleground state of Virginia, home to the world’s largest naval station, Republican Governor Bob McDonnell agrees with Romney and is firing back, calling the president’s comment an “insult” to sailors. Anderson talked with Governor McDonnell and asked him about a numbers game when it comes to the amount of naval ships.
