Horses and bayonets phrase went viral over the internet after the third and final US Presidential debate on Monday, October 22, 2012. The latest 2012 presidential debate is the last major event pitting the US President Barack Obama against Republican candidate Mitt Romney before the Election Day on November 6, 2012.
Romney reportedly challenged Obama that the US navy is “too small and has fewer ships than it did in the First World War.” Obama countered Romney by saying that “we also have fewer horses and bayonets.” The Democrat President added that “We have these things called aircraft carriers, where planes land on them. We have these ships that go underwater, nuclear submarines. And so the question is not a game of Battleship, where we’re counting ships.”
The Obama phrase instantly spread over social networks and online forum. The hashtag “horsesandbayonets” reportedly became one of the trending keywords at Twitter. Over 50 Facebook pages were already created on the most popular social networking site.
Discussions about the final presidential debate was also dominated by the horses and bayonets of US President Obama.
