Defense Secretary Leon Panetta says Hillary Clinton inspired his decision to allow women in combat.

“And in many ways, I have to tell you, it was her inspiration that encouraged me to move forward to be able to bring down the last barriers for women in the Department of Defense and to give them the ability to have a chance to engage in combat. I thank you for that inspiration,” Panetta told Clinton at a Pentagon ceremony on Thursday. …

The way I read this it means that Panetta did this so he could send Hill-Dawg into front-line combat.

Good enough for me.

So this creep listens to a bull-dykeish, liar, coward, overweight, traitorous, thief, and obstructor of justice to inspire him. What a guy!

They should put Hitlery in the front lines. Disgusting!

Translation: Panetta hasn’t been able to kill Hillary so far and now he’s hoping she dies in combat.

Hilary Clinton, a worthless anti war left wing political opportunist.

He wasn’t inspired by the fighting women in our service .... Hilary Clinton.

Do people even have any idea that scum like Panetta are screwing our country?

Why does the word “Battleaxe” come to mind?

Seeing Hillary from behind, I think of The Cavalry.
Maybe that was it.

Does Panetta think a temperament like her's is something new?

Where does he think the label "Battle Axe" came from?

Okay, so when your daughters are drafted and sent into combat and wounded, captured, raped and murdered you know who to blame.

That's funny... When I see Hillary from the front I think of seeing cavalry from behind.

"Seeing Hillary from behind, I think of The Cavalry."

Almost,but not quite.

What I think of is that this must have been what Hannibal's rear guard must have seen of the Elephant Corps while crossing the Alps...

They’ll never tear her away from licking the toilet seats in the ladies room.

She is too old. I imagine it will be for only white 18-25 year old females.

One does not find any positive inspiration in Mrs. Clinton.

Her most revealing moment, yet, was her explosion before Congress on why anyone would care about the "whys" & "whats" of the Benghazi killings. Those facial expressions ought to give many, nightmares for a long time to come.

Stick any woman that wants to be in combat on a cruise ship for 5 days without air, lights, shower and toilet facilities. Oh! I forgot very little food, and certainly not hot. Let's see how they fare.

Hillary should be a ‘Standard for all of us’.

She tried to enlist in the USMC but they didn’t want a strong woman.
While the wife of a Governor she became quite the ‘financial expert’.
While a Senator she came under attack while on a tarmac on a distant shore and were she in the Military she would have been awarded a Combat Action Ribbon.
One of the reports had her being in a serious plane crash as a result of ‘her’ plane being shot down.
She heroically ‘stood up’ to the Mean R’s while testifying while she was still recovering from a Migraine, Concussion, Tumor, PMS, (take your pick).
And just to show her ‘Loyalty’, she appeared on National TV with the pResident and was subjected to an intense grilling.

Wonder Woman has nothing on the ‘greatest SecDef’ of all time, I don’t see why HRC wasted her time flying around the world on an Airplane and BroomStick when she had such ‘super powers’.

Panetta was inspired by the gallantry that Hillary performed when she was under ‘Sniper Fire’ after landing in war torn Bosnia in March 1996.

Hillary Clinton isn’t exactly the female equivalent of Chesty Puller. Panetta is an imbecile.

I’m just wondering which will come first. Women being forced to sign up for the draft or the draft being declared unconstitutional.. (probably for being racist).

He must have based his decision on Hillary’s exposure to sniper fire while landing in Bosnia.
