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.”
