Wow! What A Great Day For America!

Space Shuttle Discovery makes it's last flight around Washington landmarks

Today, U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood delivered some welcoming remarks while standing in front of the space shuttle Discovery at Dulles International Airport in Virginia April 17, 2012.

One of his remarks was the above headline, "Wow! What A Great Day For America!"

I almost fell out of my chair when he said that.

As the Shuttle is lugged off to the Smithsonian Museum to gather dust, our astronauts are learning how to say "Please, can I have a ride?" in Russian.

A "great day"? What a sick joke. Today highlights how America has given up fifty years of leadership and dominance in the space race. As Obama continues to drain money from NASA to give to bankrupt solar panel factories and algae pond scummers, NASA's present leadership continues to lead the organization on it's self-inflicted death march.

What the hell happened?

It's a long, sad story, but this is what happens when an organization loses it's focus. Forces inside NASA and Washington have worked tirelessly to re-mold NASA into a politically correct entity of social experimentation. They were wildly successful, and in the timely words of some unknown doctor...

"The operation was successful, but the patient died".

U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood, with his unbelievable remark, aptly demonstrated the complete absence of leadership and understanding this administration has continuously shown.

A great day for America? You gotta be kidding.
