    It was only a matter of time before the space program was cancelled. Armstrong want his old triumphant NASA to return from the grave, but he is ignoring a problem called economic crisis.

    the space program will never be cancelled

    he's gonna catch hot hell for this tomorrow

    watch for it

    Obama headed to Florida in April to talk NASA - St. Petersburg Times

    nationally, the issue plays poorly for our perplexed prez in that he is once more painted as participating in what the first man on the moon calls "our long downward slide to mediocrity"

    remember how john holdren defined the objective---"de-develop"

    Buzz Aldrin is a nobody, I guess.

    Armstrong is making the classical mistake that passionate individuals often make. He believes the self-interested jockeying of the unfocused and unenergized NASA-collective is a shroud, a shroud hiding an endless pool of idealism comparable to his own. He thinks that NASA can somehow become what is was during the Kennedy Administration. I don't see how that can be unless China puts somebody on the moon, and tears down and pisses on our flag while they're at it. Even then, that will be a point of damaged national pride rather than threatened national security.

    Indeed, it was a very strong endorsement.

    “The President’s program will help us be in this endeavor for the long haul and will allow us to again push our boundaries to achieve new and challenging things beyond Earth. I believe that this is the right program at the right time, and I hope that NASA and our dedicated space community will embrace this new direction as much as I do. By so doing we can together continue to use space exploration to help drive prosperity and innovation right here on Earth.” — Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin

    you're talking the merits of this issue, my friend

    i'm talking politics

    he's, as always, on the wrong side

    for the reasons i've stated

    he IS gonna catch hell for this tomorrow, you'll see

    (he already is)

    AND

    it DOES play into his other-than view concerning what has always been, y'know, just a given

    the assumption, the presumption, the OBJECTIVE that this nation is, has been and always will be EXCEPTIONAL

    it's ONE HUNDRED PERCENT TRUE that that america-on-a-pedestal outlook is NOT our president's, nor his admin's

    as EXHIBITED by this action

    The only inference one can draw from this action is that the president does not believe NASA is necessarily a good champion of American exceptionalism. He obviously doesn't feel commercial companies won't be.
