OnlyM3: Glockenspiel HeroIt fits in well with the Republican "Obama destroyed the space program" meme that you see pop up quite a bit.I've always found this meme very odd- not because it's wrong (Bush killed the shuttle, not Obama) because most of what Republicans say today can be easily proven wrongI'm not a republican but go ahead and bust these "myths"* Obama cancels Moon return project* In its budget submitted to Congress on February 13, the Obama administration zeroed out funding for NASA's future Mars-exploration missions. The Mars Science Lab Curiosity, currently en route to the Red Planet and the nearly completed small MAVEN orbiter, scheduled for launch in 2013, will be sent, but that's it. No funding has been provided for the Mars probes planned as joint missions in 2016 and 2018 with the European Space Agency, and nothing after that is funded either.* President Obama's 2011 budget request for NASA cut the agency's Constellation program completely, effectively canceling a five-year, $9 billion effort to build new Orion spacecraft and Ares rockets.+ Orion was eventually saved by voter backlash, but dumbed down to a useless "emergency escape capsule for the International Space Station"+ Ares - Our next gen heavy lifter is dead and NO plans exist for any replacement.* NASA Director Says Muslim Outreach Push 'Deeply Flawed'Nasa director? Lets be dismissive and ad hominem him as a rich, racist, white guy. oh... he's black * The head of the Nasa has said Barack Obama told him to make "reaching out to the Muslim world" one of the space agency's top priorities.Why is he making religious nuts feel warm 'n fuzzy a higher priority than you know.... our National Air and Space priorities? Go ahead and put up your poutrage defense of this stupidity, but we all know if bush had set reaching out to Catholics, Jews, Protestants or Mormons you would have gone apoplectic.* Who's More Pro-Science, Republicans or Democrats? Another rich, white guy right? Nop ...
OnlyM3: I'm not a republican
ShadowLAnCeR: To sum up the article:WAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!
SmellsLikePoo: Yotto: I really enjoy Mr Plaitt's articles, but I seriously doubt that the people who didn't know this was simply a stunt to sell more caffeinated, sugary beverages also don't read his blog, or if they do it's to disagree with him.Nailed it. Those most in need of reading an article like this to give proper perspective... will never read it.

OnlyM3: I didn't expect you obamopologists to address the facts. Ad hominem is and violence are the only tools in your toolbox.
tallguywithglassesonObama cancelled Constellation, that's not exactly news.
It's just that I'm not sure why you feel the need to point out how not Republican you are
OnlyM3: Because farks liberals instant reply to anyone criticizing the messiah is calling them a racist republican. Again, try to keep up.
