At a market.
-- we got a bit of sarcasm from President Obama last night I wanna roll out for -- I think governor Romney maybe hasn't spent enough time looking at how our military -- you you mentioned the navy for example.
And we have fewer ships that we did in 1960.
Well governor we also have fewer horses and -- and that's.
The nature of our military is change we have these things called aircraft carriers where planes -- on the we have.
These chips that go underwater nuclear submarines.
I would joining the company now -- lieutenant colonel Ralph Peters Fox News strategic analysts -- Why do you think is a military man when you see the president told -- that we have these things called back -- count as what's your reaction.
There's it was a funny line which got an audience reaction but the president was the one who was wrong.
And by the way we do still a lot of bad -- but.
He had -- may be.
For the -- and I'm a former army guy as you know Stewart.
But I still believe that the United States is essentially and primarily a maritime.
Power because we're -- -- and global trading power.
And numbers matter.
That the real argument should be over what kind of ships we need what -- -- survivable but we need more to maintain the global presence we must maintain.
You just need enough holes to be in the Pacific -- the in the Persian gulf.
The in the -- to have an emergency reserve their particular I got so the president was wrong -- did the audience pick up on the funny comment or did -- pick up on the fundamental analysis of what the navy has and needs that you'll coming up with I suspect it's the funny comment that the orders will concentrate.
Well the national audiences in the audience in house yes they picked up a funny comment but.
Remember Virginia is a crucial swing state.
In Virginia has a huge naval presence in Norfolk Hampton roads to support -- regional economy.
And it's a shipbuilding state and it's a military state so I think Obama won the moment.
But he lost a lot of votes in Virginia next topic.
Governor Romney basically told the president that he's out of caught touch when it comes to Russia just watch this for -- ago.
Russia does continue to battle us in the UN time and time again I have.
Clear eyes on this I'm not gonna Wear rose colored glasses when it comes to Russia or mr.
-- and I'm circling back and -- say to him I'll give you more flexibility after election.
-- -- -- -- -- Ronnie is absolutely right Russia is -- our friend doesn't have to be our worst enemy by any means but look the -- was a joke.
Obama hasn't said a word is a Russian garbage -- and himself has crackdown on democracy demonstrators the Russians just told us.
They're blowing off Nunn Lugar the mutual inspections of weapons of mass destruction.
These start treaty the new and -- Obama got strategic arms reductions was totally.
Disadvantageous to the US we gave up valuable.
Dual use systems Russians gave up nothing.
The what's -- for the scrap heap but Obama got -- treaty we did -- forgive the Russians for attacking.
Russia is crude dropped.
Prudent is -- but very very talented -- looking beyond the US curious on how -- BP was forced into this bad deal with rosneft.
And so I think wrongly is right you don't have be fully confrontational but with Russia or China or anyone else.
You need to stand up for America and not roll over so why did governor Romney.
Flat out avoid attacking the president on Libya.
Well I think that was that can a strategic or if you what tactical decision for street with a strategic purpose.
He didn't want to give Obama another opening come back with a Smart quick on it.
And I think he senses that and the media are carrying the ball in this when people already heard about it and so he wanna get -- -- -- what were only needed to do last night.
And I think the instant pundits -- Obama won miss the point.
Obama I'm sorry governor -- they needed to do with the military calls a holding action.
Where you know you can't beat your enemy you -- really wasn't gonna beat Obama I'll -- on foreign policy.
We had to hold the enemy at bay hold him off.
And that governor Romney did very well I don't think governor Romney lost any votes last night.
I think Obama may have lost some of Virginia.
Very interest anybody in Florida by the way because -- Romney was much better Israel and Iran yet -- point about Virginia the military the navy keeps on coming up very interesting stuff.
The -- Ralph -- it's always a pleasure thanks for joining us again today so.
Thank -- --
