Obama Honors Neil Armstrong With Picture Of Himself
IBD Editorials ^ | August 27, 2012

Neil Armstrong: The first man to walk on the moon in the heady days of American exceptionalism has passed away, preceded in death by the U.S. space program with his heirs now hitching rides on Russian spacecraft.

We all mourn the passing of Neil Armstrong at age 82, the first man to walk on the moon as commander of Apollo 11 on July 20, 1969.

A graduate of Purdue with a degree in aeronautical engineering, his academic career was interrupted when he was called to duty with the U.S. Navy in 1949 and flew 78 combat missions in Korea. He was an exceptional man and an exceptional American.

President Obama seemingly recognized the greatness of the man and his achievement, posting on his official White House Tumblr account these words:

"Neil's spirit of discovery lives on in all the men and women who have devoted their lives to exploring the unknown — including those who are ensuring that we reach higher and go further in space. That legacy will endure — sparked by a man who taught us the enormous power of one small step."

Appropriate words, except for two small things. One is that Armstrong had publicly opposed the gutting of the U.S. space program by the Obama administration, which has left us no current way of sending men into space except for paying the Russians for a ride while NASA conducts "missions" like a Muslim outreach program and observing earth for signs of climate change.

Suspect it was not a 'candid' moment; but rather a suggested one. Perhaps a 'pose' for all to recall the placement of a special star in sky; per his 'messiah's birth'. Or at least; wants us to rememeber. . .or so imagine.

Whatever; this man's sickness; as deep as the sky he is standing under.

To correctly interpret that photo, it is the photographer who is looking at the moon. Zero is just standing gazing lovingly at the man in the shadow.

BTW, how do we know it is 0bama? Are those ears that unique?

Well; looks to lean to be Prince Phillip; and 'Howdy Doody' probably not a 'stock photo'.

As for the 'man in the shadow'. ..Is that you Reggie?

Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins didn’t do that!

Lots of other folks built that rocket...

Pointing out that FUBO is a pathetic narcissistic douchebag is getting boring...

Anyone who hasn’t figured out who he is by now is hopeless...

Sounds like BodyOdor is miffed that Neil got to walk on the moon when he can’t even walk on water.

Note to Barack: You didn't do the moon landing dimwit; Neil Armstrong did the moon landing. No matter how godlike you think you are, the history of the first lunar landing has been written while you were doing drugs and entertaining your gay lovers.

Of course, the young Obama was only 8 years at the time of the moon landing. But, he got an early start on his road to depravity. It's never too early for some Mary Jane or some blow.

Mr. Robinson: Why was this removed from “editorial”? It is a legitinate editorial with this title in today’s issue of Investor’s Business Daily. It is not “general chat.” Follow the link or pick up a copy at your newsrand.
