    This guy is such an immense jerk.

    The city of Houston has been petitioning for government to allow them to display one of the remaining Space Shuttles in one of the places where space travel was made famous. Instead Houston gets a fake shuttle to display. One made out of wood. What an insult. I'm sure Truthmatters, Sallow, rdean, edithcynic, and rest of the usual suspects will say that this Texas town can cram it.

    Makes a body want to really vote Democrat this November, doesn't it????


    In this "In Your Face Video" Chuck Schumer essentially tells Houston everything but "shove it up your ass. "

    Former astronaut Jerry Ross called it a slap in the face.

    Why does the Shuttle belong in New York?

    Somebody explain that to me?

    Is that where many of the astronauts are from? Is that where it landed several times? Is that where it was built?

    What gives this guy the right to say "New York is where the Space Shuttle belongs."

    I was born and raised on and off in Pasadena, TX -- a suburb of Houston. I do agree that Houston deserves an actual space shuttle to display. NASA was a part of that city. The line was, "Houston, we have a problem", not, "NY, we have a problem". However, the decision was NASA's, not Schumer's. He didn't have to be such an asshole about it, but it wasn't his decision.

    He sure sounded like it was........and anyone who knows politics knows that some congressional members have more say in what happens than others.

    Btw, who are the Senators from Texas?

    Kay Bailey Hutchison?

    John Cornyn?

    Both Republicans. Texas has pissed off Obama more than once. I think this is pay-back.

    mud jumped to blame Shumer of course for a NASA decision. NASA placed the shuttles in area where the largest numbers of Americans could see them; this was done a YEAR ago, and explained in this article:

    One NASA veteran said Houston had it coming. Wayne Hale, who was flight director for 40 shuttle flights and became the Shuttle Program Manager at NASA before his retirement, said his city had become "blase" about the shuttles.

    "No disrespect to those who spearheaded the effort to bring the shuttle here, but the response was lackluster," he wrote in his blog. "The local politicians gave lip service, some weak letters to the NASA administrator and little else."

    What more reason do you need to hate Chuckie Schumer (D-NY), former friend and 'GodFather' to stock market Ponzi Schemer Extraordinaire Bernie Madoff, who also happens to have a fondness for young men and boys?

    I'm sure that ABC will say that. So will MSNBC, CNN, NBC, and CBS.

    If it becomes an issue they'll claim that everyone involved wasn't all that interested. However I just got through reading a story that says otherwise, and just posted a video of UpChuck Schumer talking smack about it like it's his issue.....so that kind of puts the Kabosh on that line of thinking.
