Horses and Bayonets – Were Obama and Romney Playing Risk at the Presidential Debate?

The final presidential debate between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney involved foreign policy and included Obama’s instant classic line about horses and bayonets.

Romney had brought up the point at the US Navy has decreased in size.  Obama’s retort was that we evolve militarily and yes we had fewer ships like we have less hoses and bayonets that in the past.

The reference to classic military tactics was perfectly captured by Lite 98.7 alumni Peter Naughton who posted the photo above of the presidential candidates debating over a Risk board.

Remember when Risk was featured in an episode of Seinfeld?  Kramer and Newman were in a heated game, rather an ‘epic struggle for world domination.’ The game became so engrossing the pair took the board with them wherever they went, including the subway, when the Ukraine did them in.:
