Or a plain old fashioned hypocrite.So you like big government spending? Then let me call you out as a fake Conservative. Money is tight right now, and the key to the space program is working smarter, and not having the only goal being to put men on the moon again. Been there, done that, and decades ahead of everybody else. At this time, we have the ability to continue our robotic exploration programs, and learn much more than spending untold billions for image building. Face it - We once had a surplus, thanks to Newt Gingrich, and now we have a huge debt. Every program is going to have to be cut back, but that doesn't mean that NASA is going to be second fiddle to any other nation's program. It will be leaner and meaner, because that is how it must be, with the crushing debt America is now facing.
So, in the end, NASA workers are about to be laid off. OK, that is business. If you are deep in the red, you lay off and cut back. Let the NASA workers find work in the private sector, and stop sucking off the government tit. Isn't that what you would tell any other government worker? If it isn't, then you are not Conservative in the least, but just another big government addict who plays at being one.
Whatever happened to the GOP saying that we should shrink the government down to a size that would fit in a bathtub, and then drown it? How is that working out for you? It goes to show that we are not defined by what we say, but by what we do. If it quacks like a duck, it's a duck, Mr. Liberal in Conservative clothing.
