Obama , Wrong about most everything including axing US mission to the moon.



Listen to Obama back in July of last year. Vacuous nonsense. Every dollar spent on space research stays on earth. Obama is a third rate thinker and a first class bullshit artist. Wait till the Chinese land on the moon.


Apollo astronauts dismay at axing of Nasa mission to return mankind to the Moon

Former Apollo astronauts have expressed dismay at President Barack Obama's decision to cancel the Nasa programme that was intended to return mankind to the Moon.

Eugene Cernan, the last man to set foot on the Moon, and Jim Lovell, commander of the ill-fated Apollo 13 mission said they were disappointed by the decision to cancel Nasa's Constellation Moon programme.
Mr Lovell warned the decision would have "catastrophic consequences" for US space exploration.

The pair spoke to the BBC at a private event held at the Royal Soceity in London on Friday evening. They were joined by the first man on the moon Neil Armstrong.

Mr Lovell said: "Personally I think it will have catastrophic consequences in our ability to explore space and the spin-offs we get from space technology.

"They haven't thought through the consequences."

Mr Cernan, who was the last astronaut to return to the Apollo 17 lunar module in 1972 making him the last man to set foot on the Moon, added:"I'm quite disappointed that I'm still the last man on the Moon.
"I thought we'd have gone back long before now."

"I think America has a responsibility to maintain its leadership in technology and its moral leadership... to seek knowledge. Curiosity's the essence of human existence."

Mr Obama cancelled Nasa's Constellation programme, which was intended to build new rockets and a lander to put astronauts back on the lunar surface by 2020, after stating it was costing too much and was behind schedule.
The programme had been approved by former President George W Bush and was expected to provide a stepping stone towards sending humans to Mars for the first time.

Constellation has come under intense criticism as a drain on Nasa's resources and attempts to design a new rocket system that would replace the aging Space Shuttle have been beset with problems.

Nasa insists it still intends to send humans back to the Moon but the cancellation of the programme will set back a lunar mission by decades.

Mr Armstong, who was the first man to set foot on the Moon in July 1969, refused to comment about the cancellation of the project. The former astronaut is notoriously private and rarely makes public apperances despite his fame.

  1. But his goals are to:
    by 2020, to make math and science "cool again" and
    to have the highest college graduation rates of any country on earth.

    I think the man loves to hear himself talk.

  4. Bipartisanship means "plundering the treasury."

    Cap and Tax

    A tripartisan trio of senators — John Kerry (D., Mass.), Joe Lieberman (I., Conn.), and the New York Times’s favorite Republican environmentalist, Lindsey Graham (S.C.) — is working overtime to build support for “doing something” about climate change in the upper chamber of Congress.

  5. "It took me six years to get sick of listening to Bush. Six months with this fraud."

    I find it ironic that it is during Sunshine Week that we hear of the Slaughter Rule which is designed to hide how the Dems vote on HC.

    Not surprising but ironic.

    Probably good news in the long run.

    They ought to change the official name of NASA to National Aviation Sociology Agency and fold it into NOAA where there might be some adult supervision.

    The space missions will be better served by private development for less cost in the long run. The shuttle was kludged up from the beginning. It's a wonder we haven't lost more than two.

    Now our blessed leader wants to invite the Islamic braintrust into the game. Time to quit wasting money on space sociology.

  8. The Death of The Powell Doctrine?

    "During his tenure as chairman, Gen. Colin Powell stated the principles he thought the U.S. government should follow when contemplating the use of military force. According to Powell, the situation should involve a vital national security interest. There should be a clear and obtainable objective. A clear exit strategy should be planned from the beginning. The action should have broad political support. The military plan should employ decisive and overwhelming force in order to achieve a rapid result. And the country should use force only as a last resort. Powell's principles were no doubt the product of his negative experiences as an officer during the Vietnam War and the results of Operation Desert Storm, which seemed at the time to be a vindication of his ideas...

    "So what is the new Mullen Doctrine? For the chairman, the issue of whether the United States will employ military force has long been settled. The issue now is how the United States should apply its national power. Mullen summed up his views this way:

    "We must not look upon the use of military forces only as a last resort, but as potentially the best, first option when combined with other instruments of national and international power...


    Death of The Powell Doctrine

    You can play around with you're decade-long wars under the Mullin Doctrine all you want. I'll take the Powell Doctrine.
