Color me unimpressed:
President Bush will announce plans next week to send Americans to Mars and establish a permanent human presence on the moon, senior administration officials said Thursday night.
Let’s see- bloated deficits, expanded entitlement programs, bloated education spending, amnesty for millions of illegal aliens, the hideously expensive presxcription drug give-away- I guess we were due for something like this. What, with NASA broadcasting pictures from Mars, I guess a trip to the moon is the first evidence of the conservatism in ‘Compassionate Conservatism.’
Is this really the direction the space program should be taking?
