  1. First … “some people say?” Come on! You can do better than “some people say that Reagan won the cold war because…” Either that’s what YOU say and should quit pretending otherwise or you can tell us WHO says and we can judge the credibility of the information based on what we know of the person who says. Also, I would challenge anyone who says what you said “some people say” because it’s hogwash. I certainly wouldn’t propose such a marginal notion in a politically neutral venue.

    Second… “Republicans are pretty much on board with the vision…” Excuse me? Which Republicans? How do you know? What have they said, exactly? You carried on at length about Obama, and mentioned Clinton, but when it came to any of the other Democrats you didn’t mention anything and you painted all Republicans with a “pro-space” brush. Does give one the impression you ARE taking sides. I don’t know what the any of the R’s stand on space is, but I do know their stand son taxes are, which one would think might have baring on spending, as in, NASA’s budget!

    Last… if you’re going to talk about politics then why don’t you focus on where the real power is when it comes to NASA, which is in the Congress who control spending. All the pres can do is make suggestions (budget proposal), advocate and veto. The legislature is what is really important.
