President Obama Wins Presidential Polls, Debate Despite Ann Coulter 'Retard' Remark, 'Horses and Bayonets' It Is!
President Obama's slogan is still trending on Twitter, but Ann Coulter still has her say about what's going on. However, it didn't stop Obama from winning the last presidential debate.
Here's the details on "Horses and Bayonets."
In the final presidential debate, Mitt Romney and President Obama went head-to-head about foreign policies.
Romney criticized Obama's military policy, accusing the president of spending too little to strengthen the military by noting that the U.S. Navy now has fewer ships than it did in 1917, according to Mercury News. However, Obama striked back with his popular line.

"You mentioned the Navy, for example, and that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916," Obama said. "Well, Governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets, because the nature of our military has changed."
That's what did it for the Twitterverse.
Obama went on to say, "We have these things called aircraft carriers, where planes land on them. We have these ships that go under water, nuclear submarines."
"The question is not a game of Battleship, where we're counting ships," he said.
According to the Wall Street Journal, shortly after Obama made the comment, there were 106,000 tweets per minute referencing it. It was the most tweeted moment of the debate.
Tweets are still pouring in as we tell you this news, with the hashtag #horsesandbayonets still trending on Twitter.
Coulter though, got into some trouble because she used a derogatory slur to describe Obama.
"I highly approve of Romney's decision to be kind and gentle to the retard," she tweeted.
She made the remark after the third and final presidential debate.
Too bad it didn't do anything for Obama supporters but enrage them.
Huffington Post reported that Coulter was met with backlash from people on Twitter who called it "offensive and disrespectful." One person said, "You disgust me."
"At the end of the debate, voters gave the victory to Obama," Huffington Post wrote. "The showdown, according to pundits, was notable for how aggressively he attacked his rival and how much Romney seemed to agree with the president."
