Obama's New Mission for NASA: Now We Know What's More Important than Manned Space Flight

How much proof do Americans need that the Obama agenda is hell bent on running the greatness of the United States into the ground. His recent decision to abort, Constellation, the manned space program in motion to replace the Space Shuttle program which closes up shop later this year takes America from the world’s leader in space exploration to a miserable also-ran in just a matter of weeks. Now he has set the bold new mission for NASA, better relations with the Muslim world.

Did you get that? Better relations with the Muslim world?

Obama appointment, NASA administrator, Charles Bolden stated: "When I became the NASA administrator -- or before I became the NASA administrator -- he charged me with three things. One was he wanted me to help re-inspire children to want to get into science and math, he wanted me to expand our international relationships, and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science ... and math and engineering,"

The source of this quote is Al Jazeera, the international Islamic news network.

Whatever happened to commitment to explore new frontiers, develop new technologies, and further man’s understanding of the earth and the universe?

It’s hard to be American and not feel horribly embarrassed and short changed by such stupid decision making.
