Preparedness Controversy

I wonder what it would look like if the press did more than fact checking.  

I mean, when they parse Obama's accurate-albeit-pithy rebuttal of Romney's objectively false claims about the size of our Navy, perhaps they could look at the 1916 National Defense Act that vastly expanded our military before US entry into WWI--even if they can't find the exact number of bayonets requisitioned--and the whole Preparedness Movement, which clearly is being invoked though we now outspend the entire world as compared to a century ago we had about 12 dog catchers to deploy.

The context might be important, is all.

This going to be a big issue. Obama knows what he is doing and i think he is the right one for the position. That evidence would clear all the minds of american.
