NASA’s administrator (it’s chief executive) announced the other day that President Obama had told him that under his Administration, NASA had three top priorities
Anyone see “space flight”, “exploration”, “research”, or “expanding human frontiers” in that list? Note that these are not projects or goals NASA should have, but its top priorities according to Obama, as reported by the chief Administrator appointed by Obama.
Of course, this doesn’t seem to be getting much press and there are theories about that having to do with Old Media once again protecting Obama from the impact of his own policies. One is left wondering how much a government can be controlled by a populace this is deliberately misinformed about that government by partisan reporting.
The White House response tries to walk the remarks back but doesn’t really succeed.
