Rand Not Too Grand!

Here I am worrying daily over the horrible treatment President Obama has consistently received (mostly from republicans) since his term began, and it seems that I've been worrying for naught -- the tea-people are proving to be the GOP's own worse enemy. Rand Paul must retract and/or clarify the Civil Rights comments he made (or refused to make) on the Rachel Maddow Show (MSNBC, Wednesday, May 19, 2010 at 9:00 pm).

President to Outline His Vision for NASA -

President to Outline His Vision for NASA -

Obama Space

It really is becoming laughable. Anything and everything President Obama supports, the republicans/tea-people (and a handful of misguided democrats) reject. Would any other president receive such hateful criticism for suggesting a (temporary) hiatus on the manned portion of our space program?

Sending people into space (at this time) is exorbitantly expensive -- and so much more can be accomplished (cheaply, in comparison) utilizing private industry, the international space station, sophisticated orbiting telescopes and advanced robotic probes while we work on a larger, more powerful booster rocket (and other technologies) for future manned missions (to Mars and beyond).
