Obama has a meme

“Horses and Bayonets” was mentioned nearly 60,000 times on Twitter during one minute at one point in the debate. The catchphrase was used by Obama to demonstrate that Romney’s attack and understanding of the military was dated and un-nuanced.

The Daily Caller, however, took this witticism as “fact” (?) and ran a story about how it is not factual. They missed the point, purposefully, to use Obama’s comment as a place from which to spin Obama as an out-of-touch president, unwilling to create necessary jobs for the navy – a big constituency in VA.

Romney’s campaign and conservative writers can spin the comment in whatever way they want, but the point is that they are using material which was never intended as a factual point – thus they are spinning a joke….
