Should someone maybe point out to Obama that the nuclear Enterprise has more than twice the crew that the diesel one from World War II did?
The paltriness of the Obama presidency comes vividly to mind as the debates wrap up.

Crotchety and defensive about a stewardship that half of likely voters find, well, inadequate to present purposes, Barack Obama in the foreign policy debate trafficked most memorably in pre-planned insults to his opponent. "[W]e have these things called aircraft carriers ... these ships that go under water," was the retort to Mitt Romney's expostulation concerning shrinkage of our navy.

Why is the United States a safer, healthier place than Barack Obama found it upon entering the White House? Is it, indeed, that kind of place?...
