Politico44 ^ | 04/20/11 | MATT NEGRIN

Posted on 04/20/2011 4:19:40 PM PDT by ColdOne

President Obama plans to bring his family to the launch of the space shuttle Endeavour on April 29 to see Rep. Gabrielle Giffords's husband lead six astronauts into space.

Giffords wrote on Twitter: "We are very happy that Pres. Obama is coming to Mark's launch! This historic mission will be Endeavour's final flight."

The Orlando Sentinel reports that Obama decided to attend for a few reasons, one of which was that he was going to be in the state already to speak at Miami Dade College's

No royal wedding invite.........

He wants to be treated like royalty on the Cape.

I doubt he is revered there.

The Vacationer-In-Chief takes a little time off from his campaigning and fundraising. Maybe he can work in a round of golf while he’s there in Florida.

Well slap my bacon. He’ll be flying right over the tornado devastated area that he just said he had no plans to visit.

Like his famous Manhattan flyover, maybe he could wave at the little people as he attends another campaign photo op?

Ya think he might find some time between now and the 29th to offer some words of encouragement and consolation for the victims of the recent weather disasters?

Why, those were mostly Red states. The Dear Reader wants to watch the end of the space program first hand, and wish the astronauts well on their new mission of mooslim outreach.

This makes it sound as if Giffords herself is tweeting. Huh?

For once in my life I am hoping for a launch delay, the kind where they put it off multiple times, like an hour each time. Then, after they keep His Majesty waiting for hours, they put it off to another day.

I saw the shuttle go up once, it was awesome. After what he’s done to this country, Obama doesn’t deserve to have that experience.

Knowing him, he will find a way to bring the Arizona shooting into his photo-op, and blame Sarah Palin again.

FUBO.

Absolutely. The Dems here in AZ are touting her as a replacement for the Senate in the ‘Kyl’ seat. I'll believe her recovery (and I hope she DOES recover) when I see it. Some in the news media here are speculating the Dems will actually run Mark Kelly but use the sympathy for her to bolster his popularity. The Dems have lost their soul (if they ever had one to begin with).

Using a tragedy and a National Space Launch as a campaign rally is... well it is obama and that is the worst thing that one can be in this world today.

The 0bama curse was the first thing that popped into my mind. With him announcing he’ll be there we can now be assured there’ll be a problem. Hopefully just a delay or a weather issue and not a catastrophic event.

It’s extremely difficult to get tickets for this event. They trade over the internet for a price approaching $1000. I wonder how many Obama’s entourage consumed.

This is chilling news-Obama at the launch. Everything he has turned his attention to for the past 2 years has been a disaster or blown sky high. He is a Jonah and may jinx the launch or rest of the mission. If I was on this crew, I’d develop a bad ear infection soon to get off the roster. I hope I’m wrong as I love the space program and the heroes involved in all aspects of it.

He’s hoping it will crash. I am not kidding you. He wanted to be there when the Challenger blew up. It’s like Clinton being upset 9/11 happened on Bush’s watch. F’ing vulture.

Sorry I teased you the other day about posting from Politico44...I like you.

You know some of the people at NASA have had similar thoughts about "new VIP seating".

Such arrogance.

SUCH UTTER ARROGANCE!

The man child goes to a venue in which he created the layoff of over 5000 jobs either last week or the week before and decides to show up just to rub it in.

Send him to the moon to bat a golf ball around for a while. Then, when he radios home to get a ride back to Earth we reply: “Sorry dude, remember you cancelled the space program”

Hey NASA guys. PSSST listen up.
Launch problems. Get down to 10 seconds and abort the takeoff. Put it off and put it off. OMG so many problems. Keep on delaying until the muslim dictator gets frustrated and leaves.

Then launch. at night.

Don’t let the muslim make this into a propaganda event.
