Update 8:44 PM
Apparently the GOP is trying to defend Romney and attack Obama by pointing out actual usage of horses and bayonets by the military. They are trying to change what Obama actually said "we have fewer" to what they wish he said "we have none". Be sure not to let them do it.
I'll keep updating as I find more.

Currently working on a musical called #horsesandbayonets. It's about horses who use bayonets but involves jazz hands or jazz hooves.

MT @JBird717: My favorite part of #horsesandbayonets -that Obama correctly used the word "fewer" everytime, instead of the incorrect "less."
