I have been giddy with the 40th Anniversary celebrations of Apollo 11.

I have been following the stage by stage simulcasting on We Choose the Moon.

The videos I have watched this week still choke me up. And Gene Kranz, mission control genius, and the person who said "Failure is Not an Option", is speaking here in November. I am excited.

Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Mike Collins have said in numerous speeches all week, "We need to go to Mars".

But today at the White House, Obama says nothing about the Moon, nothing about Mars, and nothing about the 2020 goal of going back to the Moon.

Yahoo News - Obama Meets Astronauts - no promise on Moon or Mars

"So with Armstrong standing next to him and nodding, Obama said those magic words: 'Keep the goal by 2020.'

But he wasn't finished. 'Keep the goal by 2020 of having the highest college graduation rates of any country on Earth, especially in the math and science fields.' "


This should be no surprise. Cancel the Moon and Mars and you will have more money for social programs like government subsidized healthcare for all.

Heaven help us, we have lost what it means to be Americans...We are now, or soon will be, some clone of the prissy French.

Or maybe Obama side steps the issue because he knows that the moon landings 40 years ago was faked.
