Money wise Nasa is cancelling projects for this effort and his call for a 1 billion a year for 5 years is nothing. So yes this is hit Bush and forget
about what opening up space will do for the WORLD, jobs, new technologies, etc.
Balance the budget is a lame excuse, as Nasa uses 1 percent on the nation's budget. So stopping this points to how they are trying to use this as a
means of election mud throwing talk.
I wrote the President we need space just like lewis and clarke explored our new frontier. After they did that the west was hit with a population boom.
Space once we get the mapping done will do the same thing. Hotels and mining colonies will pop up. Telescopes planted on a Lunar surface looking thru
a non atmosphere will give us even more delights to look at.
This is a win , win by going.
