Armstrong, the first human to set foot on the lunar surface, was one of three former astronauts who signed an open letter to Obama ahead of his visit to Florida on Thursday where he will deliver a space policy speech.

You bet! There is hardly an issue that a community organizer cannot improve through vigorous inactivity!

What the heck would this “Armstrong” guy know that Odumbo doesn’t know about “Space”?

Someone needs to ask Maj Gen Armstrong just exactly what political benefit he expects Obama to personally receive from the space program.

"The Russians have won the space race!"

Yep; and that is just fine with Obama and, in fact, viewed as progress by the American hater occupying the White House.

But even if you move, the f*ck*rs still can tax you for what, 10 years?

Ah Communism. Perhaps NASA can do some joint ventures with Cuba and Venezuela.

Sarcasm or not, look at which one is getting to make the decisions now. Sad isn't it?

November will be a “giant leap for mankind” when we clean out the Democrat cesspool known as Congress.

That’s my “space program” right how. Get the rats out of Congress and make space for loyal, sane, rational Americans who love their country, not sell it for votes and pork.

“Without the skill and experience that actual spacecraft operation provides, the USA is far too likely to be on a long downhill slide to mediocrity”

Soon we will be on the same level as Obama’s brethren in Africa. Obama wants to destroy his idea of a White master race.

Yeah, well....that's his modus operandi.

He is doing it to American as a whole.

I really don’t understand why Obammie the Commie would pass up the opportunity to send a multi-culti crew up there to plant a rainbow flag or the UN flag.

Aside from that, is this even “his” decision to make? Wouldn’t this be a congress-based funding issue?
