Skip to comments.Obama Cold to NASA's Planned Deep Space Station... Should Be Working On Making Muslims Feel Good

How bad is Obama's obsession with ceding the free world to the umma (the Muslim world community)? It's positively scary. Not only did he slash NASA's key programs and cut space exploration, but also he told them to redirect their efforts towards Muslim countries.
But wait, it gets worse: now he is withholding approval of a planned NASA deep space station. Maybe he is unhappy with NASA -- maybe they haven't made enough Muslims feel good about themselves.
I first wrote of Obama's stone age at The Thinker back in April 2010.
NASA's Planned Deep Space Station Does Not Have Obama Approval By Mark Whittington | Yahoo! Contributor Network, Dec 4, 2012 (thanks to Choi)
A story published in Space.com suggests that NASA's plans to build a deep space station at the Earth/moon Lagrange 2 point may be more hope than reality. The Obama administration seems actually cold to the idea.
Deep space station not approved by Obama administration
Space.com, quoting an unnamed administration official, contradicted recent media reports that a deep space station, designed to be a gateway for expeditions to the asteroids, Mars, and perhaps the lunar surface, had not been approved by the Obama administration. The unnamed official hinted that the stories in the media were part of a gambit by NASA to garner support for the project from the Congress. In any case, no funding for the deep space station has been requested for the current or the upcoming fiscal year.

So Democrats are anti science.
I don’t understand why the commie ‘RATS just can’t give every muzzie a trophy and let NASA go back to what it is supposed to be doing.
We can send the NASA bacon to Dee’troit!!
Space is the antithesis of their world view.
If congress authorizes it and provides the funding does it even NEED Obama’s approval, after all, if he opposed it, he had the opportunity to veto the funding bill.
Democrats are consumed with islam.

The dims can't buy (or steal) any votes in space. Plus, anything above first grade level is far beyond their comprehension.
WOW! You would think he would like Deep Space stations...
I am not with NASA but the Lagrange points don’t really seem like “deep space”,again though I am not a scientist.Otherwise I think it is a great idea to increase our footprint in space.
A shame the government keeps undercutting exploration for social projects.There is hope that our space exploration could succeed whereas our social projects always seem to fail.
