So, as my bro pointed out, Obama has totally flip-flopped on his human spaceflight policy. About a year ago, Obama wanted to put a temporary 86 on human spaceflight–10 years or so of nothing.
Now, he thinks going to the moon by 2020 is a good idea.
And, of course, there doesn’t appear to be anything in the media out there about his previous stance. It’s as if he’s had this brilliant idea all along, as if he had never “changed his mind.”
Heaven forbid a politician ever admit that he made a mistake in his/her policy 😛
