The Space Shuttle Fleet was retired in 2011 long after George W. Bush left office and Obama seized power.

In the Obama years, we have lost the Space Shuttle, NASA is pandering to Muslims, we have not been to Mars or even back to the Moon.

The Space Shuttle Fleet was retired in 2011 long after George W. Bush left office and Obama seized power.

The program was planned to end in 2010. It was being shut down when Obama took the oath of office, and many of the facilities and manufacturing needed to support it had already ended. He (or rather, NASA) extended the program an additional year to allow completion of the ISS. Not everything is Barack Obama's fault.

we have lost the Space Shuttle ... we have not been to Mars or even back to the Moon.
So what? What the hell did we the taxpayer get for hundreds of billions of dollars spent during the 30 years of space shuttle mission?
You want to go to Mars - you pay for it. Like the moon, there's nothing there.
