Skip to comments.Concerned About NASA: Time for Lori Garver and Friends to Take a Hike
Posted on 07/23/2010 11:41:37 AM PDT by Concerned_About_NASA
The tide has decisively turned against Lori Garver and her cohorts who created the disastrous NASA budget and plan for FY 2011.
Congress could not be clearer in its rejection of the ill conceived plan Garver developed and sprung on Administrator Charlie Bolden in February. The Senate Appropriations Committee, Senate Commerce, Science and Technology Committee and House Science & Technology Space Subcommittee have all weighed in with well thought out plans which look far more like NASAs baseline plan than the road to nowhere scheme proposed by Garver.
Word has it Garver was intentionally left out of deliberations between Congress and the White House. This is ironic since earlier this year she cut Administrator Bolden out of the creation of the NASA plan.
While last week Garver tried to spin the Senate bill as a victory saying, We think this is a great start. It accomplishes the major shifts the President set out to have for the space program, clearly the bill is a major defeat for her.
If anything the Senate Appropriations and House Science & Technology Space Subcommittee bills are even more of a resounding defeat for Garver.
One needs to bear in mind Garver is not solely responsible for the failed NASA plan hatched in February. Her accomplices were Jim Kohlenberger of OSTP and Paul Shawcross of OMB.
Their plan has proven to be a major embarrassment for President Obama and is now totally rejected. Congress has been unnecessarily by Garvers antics, and thousands of people have lost their jobs unnecessarily because of her.
Its time for Garver and her associates to go. President Obama should remove all three of them. Garver, Kohlenberger and Shawcross should have nothing to do with NASA as the nation moves forward with the solid plan Congress has developed. They will only be impediments and should be removed immediately.
She ruined the old National Space Society too....I quit the organization because of her lib BS.
Perhaps they can go work for the new Iranian space program. Part of all that outreach they have been talking about.
Welcome to Free Republic.
Your first post is a thread about your pet issue!
That’s very popular, folks love that.
Do you have a blog?
No way will he allow anything that brings pride to America to survive.
Obama tried to outsource the wrecking of America’s space program and got his hat handed to him
NASA is garbage. The idiots there love Bill Nelson. NASA was good when the Germans ran it.
Add one more: Alan Ladwig, Garver’s mouthy little boy-bitch needs to go too.
So how do you see the Constellation program fairing with NASA? Are we, or are we not, on track back to the moon and space? Or are we going to drift along with the LEO/global warming Clinton years?
Now they are just another pork filled government agency. The main reason we still have a space program is to provide pork for congressritters in Florida, Texas, Alabama, and California. The shuttle made it through a hostile congress in the 70's only by promising certain powerful politicians that it would employ most of the old Apollo folks, thereby driving up its operational costs.
