While Republicans may not like President Obama’s pointed “game of Battleship” attack against Mitt Romney during Tuesday’s night’s debate, there’s one massive entity whose identity is built in part on military might — the Hasbro toy company.
In a statement to BuzzFeed, Hasbro spokesman Wayne Charness said, “Many of our brands including Battleship are household favorites that get mentioned in many settings. We are glad the President has played the game.”
Although Obama’s “horses and bayonets” line has gotten much of the coverage, Obama also used the Hasbro’s classic Battleship game as a metaphor to attack Romney, saying, “the question is not a game of Battleship, where we’re counting ships … It’s what are our capabilities.”

In other news today, Romney has overtaken Obama in the Real Clear Politics favorability ratings avg. He over took Obama in solid electoral votes last week, and also leads national and swing state poll avgs. So I’d say this time two weeks from now Obama just might be getting ready to tell Romney: you’ve sunk my battleship.
