At a Pentagon briefing today, outgoing Defense Secretary Leon Panetta was asked how his lifting of the ban on women in combat would affect the Selective Service going forward. He would’ve liked to answer that question, but he needed a little information first:

Well,¬†that’s¬†reassuring.

The answer, Mr. Secretary, is Lawrence G. Romo. Enjoy your retirement.

    Sad, is he senile?

      Nope, it’s worse, he’s a Progressive…

    This is the first time I can recall believing something a member of this administration has said. Leon might also have taken a page from Hillary and added, “What difference does it make, anyway? This is a political decision, so I am not concerned about the implications for implementation of the policy.”

    This is what happens when you put an out of his depth, bed wetting, liberal hack Democrat in charge of Man’s Work.

    Just one more useless round in the Democrats’ manufactured War on Women.

    Just like Obamacare, gun control, and other liberal policies – this one was made without single thought as to the unintended consequences or how to implement. It was simply made to look good politically, and the fawning msm reacts as expected……

    I remember when Panetta was campaigning on potholders when I was a little kid. He’s not the thickest potholder in the drawer, that’s for sure.

    TBH I could not remember either, and for some reason was thinking it was SSA related.
    been so many decades since I dealt with it.
    however…its not my job to know it and seeing as how its a DOD item it was his.

    When a politician ends a statement with “to tell you the truth”, is it an admission of what we already knew: that he’s been lying to us all along, or just a Freudian slip?

    That statement is utterly pathetic. He is the Defense Secretary, how does he not know?
