"For much of the past four years, the Obama administration's propensity for asserting views of reality wildly at odds with those evident to most rational citizens has looked increasingly like a page from that film script. "

"Mr. Obama's outrage notwithstanding, the administration's prolonged efforts to muddle the picture of the Benghazi attack raised proper suspicions. The Obama team's instant response—that Republicans were attempting to politicize a tragedy—was entirely characteristic. If ever a story screamed its politicized nature, it was the administration's Scheherazade-like tale, now five weeks old and rolling on, about that Sept. 11 assault. A tale that left little doubt of its motivation: fear of the impact, so close to the election, of a successful terrorist attack—the clear indication that al Qaeda was not, as claimed, on the run."

Yep, the Moabama admin is nothing but an empty wall street marketing campaign. Kind of like a really high priced pet rock. You spent all your money and then wonder WHAT WAS I THINKING. Fortuantely I'm an amature gemologist so I know a pet rock when I see one.

Sure you will, del. It would take at least 2 more aids to transport you to your van, and I don't think you have the $$ for that.

That's because you're an idiot.

Big talk from someone who can't post their own thoughts. We can read the WSJ too. What we need to know is your analysis of the story.

We have to ride on Russian rockets to get up to our fucking space station because of this president. How pro-science can he be???

From Wiki:

The Space Shuttle program was extended several times beyond its originally-envisioned 15 year life span because of the delays in building the United States space station in low Earth orbit — a project which eventually evolved into the International Space Station. It was formally scheduled for mandatory retirement in 2010 in accord with the directives President George W. Bush issued on January 14, 2004 in his Vision for Space Exploration.[8] However, the final Shuttle launch was that of Atlantis on July 8, 2011. According to the Vision for Space Exploration, the next manned NASA program was to be Project Constellation with its Ares I and Ares V launch vehicles and the Orion Spacecraft; however, the Constellation program was never fully funded, and in early 2010 the Obama administration asked Congress to instead endorse a plan with heavy reliance on the private sector for delivering cargo and crew to LEO.

If you're going to lie, at least make it a little bit harder to debunk. :lol::lol::lol:

NASA - President Bush Offers New Vision For NASA
President Bush Offers New Vision For NASA 01.14.04

President Bush has unveiled a new vision for space exploration, calling on NASA to "gain a new foothold on the moon and to prepare for new journeys to the worlds beyond our own."

--

Second, the United States will begin developing a new manned exploration vehicle, called the Crew Exploration Vechicle (CEV). The first craft to explore beyond Earth orbit since the Apollo days, the spacecraft would be developed and tested by 2008 and conduct its first manned mission no later than 2014. Though its main purpose would be to leave Earth orbit, the vehicle would also ferry astronauts to and from the International Space Station after the shuttle is retired.​

Crew Exploration Vehicle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Crew Exploration Vehicle (or CEV) was the conceptual component of the U.S. NASA Vision for Space Exploration that later became known as the Orion spacecraft. The Orion CEV was part of NASA's Constellation Program to send human explorers back to the Moon, and then onward to Mars and other destinations in the solar system.

--

The concept for the vehicle was officially announced in a speech given by George W. Bush at NASA Headquarters on January 14, 2004.[1] The Draft Statement of Work for the CEV was issued by NASA on December 9, 2004, and slightly more than one month later, on January 21, 2005, NASA issued a Draft Request For Proposal (RFP). The Final RFP was issued on March 1, 2005,[2] with the potential bidders being asked to answer by May 2, 2005.​
Bush retired the shuttle fleet -- and also initiated its replacement.

Funny how you forgot to mention that, isn't it?

One thing for sure: Kosher girl will believe her eyes. Right after she puts what she wants to see in front of them.
