Panetta sendoff features terrible dog puns, budget plea from Obama

Leon Panetta was honored this afternoon at a farewell ceremony in Washington, D.C., but the departing Secretary of Defense managed to drop a few bombs on his way out. He was joined briefly by his dog, Bravo, inspiring some terrible puns.

If you thought that was bad, Panetta hadn’t even gone nuclear yet.

Earlier in the week, Democratic senators managed to turn Panetta’s testimony on the lethal Benghazi, Libya, terrorist attack into an impromptu budget hearing, preferring to spend the defense secretary’s final days arguing against sequestration. President Obama kept the trend going by turning Panetta’s going-away party into a political soapbox.

    NEVER been impressed with Panetta; always seemed like nothing more than a professional Federal employee. To say nothing of the fact that he looks like Peter Sellers.

    Patreus, lie about Benghazi and then gone. Clinton, lie about Benghazi and then gone. Panetta, lie about Benghazi and then gone. Who’s got next?

      Ooh! Ooh! Obama, please?!

  • Ben Bollman

    Wasn’t Obama the one calling for sequestration during the campaign?

    Panetta is a survivor, he has long survived in Washington, being devoid of any talent.
    He will now put as much distance between himself and Obama as he can.
