Skip to comments.Gallery: President Obama and NASA (Barf Alert at Warp 9.9)

Thirty images of Obama' visit to a governmental agency once the crown jewels of the nation and now after having eviscerated its budget, not to say having destroyed the hopes and dreams not only of America's future in space but of humanity's quest for knowledge, new frontiers, the wonders of exploring the moon, discoveries to be made to have boggled the mind.
I find Obama's trip to NASA one of such utter apathy, egregious lack of understanding one that defies common sense. To have the audacity, the gall to show his face at NASA Cape Canaveral after racking up record budget deficits but gutting NASA's budget, canceling the mission to return to the moon, it's very dreams, hopes for mankind can not be quantified, except to demonstrate the utter lack of vision, imagination, leadership this man pathetically lacks.
I'm sure the head of NASA doesn't have the authority to refuse the president from touring any of NASA's facilities. But whoever arranged to have the president spend a few hours at NASA's Cape Canaveral facilities surely hasn't much savoir faire, common sense to find some other venue in which he can spend his final days as president at instead of having him tour the one site he not only actually reduced funding for but very much destroyed the future operations, employment for, of, America's technology's brain trust, the hopes and dreams of NASA's return to the moon by 2020 in building a permanent space colony.
In some of the images he greets, chats with shuttle pilots soon to be relegated to anachronistic status in a manner in which belies him being solely responsible for the nearly non-existent, moribund state of the once proud American space programs.
I do have a special message to the president regarding his NASA decision and everything else he has done to make America less of all that it once was before he took office and that is
We will never go back to the moon
Can this be undone by another POTUS? Just wondering.
Brilliant. Instant Classic. The best part is that in order to return to Earth it must burn up in the atmosphere.
I believe that was from a Sony camera ad. They floated the chair up there under a balloon.
I was wrong. It was Toshiba.
The question is..
Will they be?
R&R seem to think that its all settled law
We were told to stay off the moon.
Or he’d have to try to bum a ride from Vladi...
Among the retirement of the shuttle, Muslim outreach and the GISS CAGW crew, NASA is toast.
That movie was awesome
Damn, that was a pharmaceutical grade barfer. Everything Hussein touches has turned to shiite..
Upon his arrival at NASA TOTUS stopped and looked around. When seeing the abandoned production buildings once used for building space craft the words “Did I do that?” were flashing out by the TOTUS followed by “Got any cheese?”.
This is a rare case where 0bama shifted an industry FROM the government TO the private sector, not to reduce costs but to ERASE collective American accomplishments in space and all the patriotic nationalism it brings. When SpaceX reaches new heights it's a wonderful thing, but without the intensity of patriotic nationalism that NASA could bring. For 0bama, 'Mission accomplished'.
He’s not going to like it over here.....
Romney signs are everywhere... only one Obama sign that I saw.
“Scotty: I don’t know how much more emergency power we can take before we start to break up.”
It's okay, but I see that you have not complied with my order that all NASA
products must have the new "Islamic Outreach" logo prominently displayed.
Of course - Obama knows it belongs to the muslims.
When I was growing up... I had a sixth grade field trip to Stennis Space Center in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi... I walked right up to a Saturn Five First Stage and touched it... I watched that rocket take the first men to ever WALK ON THE MOON... to the Moon.
When I thought about our future... as I stood there and marveled at those huge engines and their exhaust bells... and listened to the tech tell me about the 80 miles of copper wiring in that one stage... I dreamt of Moon Bases and Mars Colonies. On that MEMORABLE DAY... I even saw a model of the Shuttle before the first Test Vehicle was ever built... and today America does not have the ability of manned space flight. Rutan reaching the edge of space does not count. HOW FAR WE HAVE FALLEN UNDER obama... for we flew men and women into space and kept men and women in space for months at a time... until he ORDERED it to stop.
