LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Rebutting flippant ship comment
Question of the Day
Thank you, Washington Times, for the comprehensive, on-point editorial about President Obama's condescending laugh line in the last presidential debate of 2012 ("Obama, horses and bayonets," Comment & Analysis, Wednesday).
In "5 Questions with Donald Rumsfeld" (Commentary, Oct. 22), former Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld said, "It is better to have one too many tanks than one too few." Mitt Romney should have borrowed that line from Mr. Rumsfeld during the debate and responded to the president, "It's better to have one too many ships than one too few."
