So, I have some problems here. Don't get me wrong, I love the concept of Space Exploration, I think it is one of the finest examples of the more laudable parts of our humanity. My problems are these: 1. That we are spending 16 Billion dollars now, in the middle of a War, with a huge Budget Deficit, and plenty of un- or under-funded problem right here on Earth, at home. These include Health Care, Education, Energy and so on. I think Space Exploration is important, and in some cases, worth sacrificing for. Still, I cannot help but be galled at the irresponsibility of funding such an enterprise in the current climate. 2. That there does not seem to be a detailed plan, as what this money is to be used for, or how much the "grand plan" envisioned by Bush will actually cost. It seems like carte blanche and again irresponsible. 3. Delay. First off, the manner in which he secured funding for Nasa (in his district, I might add) was to stick it in the OmniBus bill and then threaten to scuttle the whole thing if he didn't get all the funding he asked for. Irresponsible again. What do you all think? Am I being too harsh?
