    Yes, liberal dregs reminds me of the Civil War reenactors, too.

    Just today I was at Chickamauga Battlefield, where General Thomas's Army was in the fight of their life.  After a full two days of intense fighting, they were depleted of ammo and the CSA were coming into the field.  Thomas ordered "Fix bayonets" and all the troops were on the ground.  The troops were valiant but within minutes they were overcome by the Rebs.  Three regiments lost 322 and 563 were captured.  

    Agree with Obama, bayonets are antiquated and useless.
