More evidence is in that President Obama, oozing with socialism, hates the private sector of our economy and wants to destroy it.
As had been rumored for days, Obama’s blueprint for NASA would cancel the Constellation program, the family of rockets and hardware now in development to replace the aging space shuttle, and would call instead on commercial vendors to fly astronauts to orbit.
NASA Administrator, Charlie Bolden, put it this way:
NASA will accelerate and enhance its support for the commercial spaceflight industry to make travel to low Earth orbit and beyond more accessible and more affordable. Imagine enabling hundreds, even thousands of people to visit or live in low Earth orbit, while NASA firmly focuses its gaze on the cosmic horizon beyond Earth.
The “cosmic horizon beyond Earth” is, of course, the place where people like Beck, Hannity, and Limbaugh live, those who continue to preach—for their own commercial reasons—that Obama is a radical ideologue, who won’t rest until America is utterly destroyed.
UPDATE: Daily Kos provided a couple of short statements from some conservative [sic] Republicans over Obama’s decision to kill the Constellation program:
“It’s a matter of priorities,” said Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas. “We can find that money in other parts of the budget.”
[Kay Bailey Hutchinson] — “very short-sighted. … We’ve already made such an investment.”
[Governor Rick Perry] — said he “could probably find a lot of earmarks where billions of dollars were spent” on projects that didn’t help the Texas economy nearly as much.
Rep. Pete Olson, a Sugar Land Republican whose district includes the Johnson Space Center, also wants Obama to reconsider.
