In February of 2010, I sarcastically wrote:
More evidence is in that President Obama, oozing with socialism, hates the private sector of our economy and wants to destroy it.
He is turning over NASA’s manned spaceflight program to private companies for commercialization.
That was then, and here’s this morning’s news:
CAPE CANAVERAL – A private company sent its unmanned capsule off to theInternational Space Station early Tuesday, heading for what could be the first nongovernmental docking there.
John Holdren, assistant to our socialist president, said:
Every launch into space is a thrilling event, but this one is especially exciting because it represents the potential of a new era in American spaceflight.
NASA honcho Charles Bolden remarked:
The significance of this day cannot be overstated. A private company has launched a spacecraft to the International Space Station that will attempt to dock there for the first time. And while there is a lot of work ahead to successfully complete this mission, we’re certainly off to a good start and I hope you all would agree on that.
But we all can’t agree because some of us still think Mr. Obama is, well, I’ll just tell ya via a HuffPo report yesterday:
Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) held another lively town hall meeting this weekend, playing host to a constituent who accused President Barack Obama of “sedition” because he had allegedly lied to voters about his true political allegiances to “socialism, communism and Nazism.”
Another Fox-educated voter.
In any case, Walsh didn’t exactly set his constituent straight, perhaps because the congressman can see how turning over manned spaceflight to private companies makes Mr. Obama a raving socialist, communist, and, uh, Nazi.
