Obama's Debate Zingers Were Sharp But Snarky (VIDEO)

President Barack Obama had more than a few zingers at the final presidential debate Monday night against Republican nominee Mitt Romney.

The president's "horses and bayonets" remark was the most discussed and perhaps the most remarkable, but he didn't stop there. In the same exchange, Obama also explained to Romney that the nation has "these things called aircraft carriers, where planes land on them," and "these ships that go underwater" that are called -- you guessed it -- nuclear submarines.

Obama lobbed more caustic comments at Romney, too. Referring to a Romney's March remark that Russia is "our number one geopolitical foe," Obama said, "The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because, you know, the Cold War’s been over for 20 years."

In a separate exchange, after Romney criticized China for "stealing" American jobs, Obama took the opportunity to slam Romney for Bain Capital's practice of investing in companies that moved American jobs to foreign countries. "Well, Governor Romney's right, you are familiar with jobs being shipped overseas because you invested in companies that were shipping jobs overseas," Obama said.

Obama's tone may remind audiences of how Vice President Joe Biden seemed to laugh at Rep. Paul Ryan throughout the vice-presidential debate earlier this month, or -- going further back in history -- Al Gore's infamous sighs during his debate with George W. Bush in 2000.

Watch the video above to see a compilation of Obama's snarky zingers from Monday night's debate, and judge for yourself.
