    Of course that's all forward type thinking, and as we all know, people these days don't think ahead by generations, unless of course we're spending their cash.

    That's fine and dandy, but promising to fullfill this by your second term given the debt problems we have now? Come on, get serious. Gingrich WAS a basket case for suggesting this.

    We were in a lot worse shape in the 60's when Kennedy wanted to go to the moon, but hey, whatever. No one wanted to pony up cash for Columbus either until the queen of spain gave him what amounts to a drop in the bucket so the darn fool could sail off the edge of the Earth, or heck he might actually find another route to the East? What happened next is, well, history.

    What gets me about progressives, mainly, is that they resist progress in obvious places. Space exploration is one of those obvious and necessary places, and yet alot of them are opposed to the idea. Look, we currently have no way of deflecting a good sized asteroid if one were heading our way. Going to, and surviving on the moon isn't some waste of money, it absolutely necessary for us as a species if we plan to survive.

    LOL so it's ok to go into debt more as long as it is stuff you want. Got it, the conservative way.

    That's just silly. Most, if not all conservatives were horrified when Obama gutted NASA, frankly, however, how much of a stink did we make of it? Not much, and do you know why? Because we thought the president was serious about fiscal issues, and like military cuts we conservatives can suck it up IF the president is serious about fiscal policy. Well, we were had again, and as skeptical as we conservatives are, we still believe in the promise of the American idea. Unlike those on the left that think we can just spend and spend, and tax and tax, on the left there is not tit for tat, it's just more please, get them rich guys, suck em dry, yeah, yeah!!

    You want to add up the integrity score between conservatives and liberals? Not even close buddy..

    Nothing you posted escapes the fact that you have NO problem with increasing the debt as long as it is for a program YOU want. That's the conservative way!

    You don't really believe for a second that YOU lib's, or democrats don't want to spend on defense (Coz not too many voters in the military for liberal democrats), and instead rather spend it on food stamps, birth control for women, and un-means tested welfare for the poor and downtrodden (Coz there's plenty of votes there).

    The difference between my wants for space exploration is that, last time I checked, space exploration was politically blind. Even poor and downtrodden dream about going to the stars one day. Besides, it wouldn't increase the debt if we stopped giving away our money in foreign aid, cut out funding ridiculous programs that study whether laughing a lot makes for a happier person..

    Why?

    The Bible doesn't mention anything about moon bases, after all. And if you follow Christian eschatology, you'd know that the End-Times makes moon bases irrelevant.

    I think it means that he's exploring the possibilities of running again in 2016.

    You know a moon base to mine Helium 3 for Fusion would be astronomically valuable no?

    Newt has lots of grand ideas, which at their core premises aren't bad, but his problem to the GOP is that he inherently isn't anti-Government. Newt views Government in many ways that Clinton does: a tool to reach goals.

    Uh a 5% cut in times of record debts and deficits is not "gutting."

    Furthermore, moving NASA out of the taxi service should result in cuts.

    On some grounds, Conservatives should be championing this move. NASA's taxi service was a Socialist program where the government owned and operated the means of production. Now, private companies are doing the work for cheaper.
