Great questions! But what about these?

What has Obama done to help the Cubs win a World Series?
What has Obama done to shorten the duration of the acne outbreaks on Matthew's ass?

Don't you know? Obama is the RW anointed Messiah. According to them, he should be able cure cancer, perfect fusion energy, and make the Cubs world champions.....just with a wave of his hand.

I've never seen such a bunch of bawl babies like these people. Why do they not realize that green, renewable energy is our future? Why do they want to piss it away? Why do they feel that passing the R&D costs, and by default the control of this technology onto China is a smart move?

This technology works.....is it ready for prime time? Not yet....but it will be. Someone's going to figure out a way to make it cost effective and the whole world will want it....I'd prefer it was us. That means investment, and yes....some folks will try and fail. But you don't throw the baby out with the bath water.

You have got to be joking!
Science is explicitly excluded from the GOP education manifesto and you have the cheek to ask if Obama is pro-science?!

Carter and Clinton killed a lot of good science.

Obama has shorted our space program making us rely on the Russians.

I'd rather this money was spent on a cure for cancer than global warming. Honestly. Enough of my family has went that way. :(

I thought Bush stopped the space program...and doesn't that leave more money for cancer research...and doesn't a cure for cancer qualify as science...?

We should pull out of the middle east and close the bases down. A strong space program(99.9% of the known universe) has its importance with the cures for diseases. A nation that strives for our own knowledge and betterment is necessary.
