BO(zo)’s Bright-Unique-Lovey-Loopey-Shiny-Hopey-Ideal-Twinkle plan for NASA


BO(zo) did a flyover and crapped on NASA at the KSC today on his way to a $30K/plate fundraiser. He’s now hawking his new plan that I’ve dubbed the B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T plan. Note: the original, bulleted, items are all taken from the White House handout.

Lets’ review the new
B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T plan, shall we?


• Advances America’s commitment to human spaceflight and exploration of the solar system, with a bold new vision and timetable for reaching new frontiers deeper in space.

Standard campaign B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T we’ve heard this crap from every sleazy politician since JFK (who was the only one who actually meant what he said)


• Increases NASA’s budget by $6 billion over 5 years.

Last year’s NASA budget was $18.69 billion. This year’s Pentagon budget is $708.3 billion. $1.2 billion extra per year is nothing, if he were serious about supporting NASA he would have doubled the budget and it still would be a rounding error on the Pentagon’s spreadsheet = B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T


• Leads to more than 2,500 additional jobs in Florida’s Kennedy Space Center area by 2012, as compared to the prior path.

Since they were going to lose 7,000 jobs by 2012, this really means they’ll only lose 4,500 jobs = B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T


• Begins major work on building a new heavy lift rocket sooner, with a commitment to decide in 2015 on the specific heavy-lift rocket that will take us deeper into space.

“with a commitment to decide in 2015” – in the last year of his second term in office, he gets to decide… or not = B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T and btw, we already have several heavy lift rockets ready to go: the Atlas V, the Delta 4 Heavy, Direct 3 (otherwise known as: using the Shuttle engines we are already using) = more B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T


• Initiates a vigorous new technology development and test program to increase the capabilities and reduce the cost of future exploration activities.

This statement is semantically null = B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T


• Launches a steady stream of precursor robotic exploration missions to scout locations and demonstrate technologies to increase the safety and capability of future human missions, while also providing scientific dividends.

No specifics, which means he’s just co-opting missions already in the pipeline = B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T


• Restructures Constellation and directs NASA to develop the Orion crew capsule effort in order to provide stand-by emergency escape capabilities for the Space Station – thereby reducing our reliance on foreign providers.

Turns Constellation: an escape velocity (25,000mph) crew life support and re-entry system, into a port-a-potty backup LEO system (17,000mph) in case the Russians stop sending up Soyuz capsules to rescue our ISS crews = B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T


• Establishes the technological foundation for future crew spacecraft needed for missions beyond low Earth orbit.

Complete and utter crap – he just killed off our “technological foundation for future crew spacecraft needed for missions beyond low Earth orbit”: it was called Constellation = B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T “likely beyond 2020” = B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T
“1- 2 years sooner”. Than what, using the Shuttle? = B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T


• Jumpstarts a new commercial space transportation industry to provide safe and efficient crew and cargo transportation to the Space Station, projected to create over 10,000 jobs nationally over the next five years.

All the supposedly ‘new’ commercial space industry companies are already up and running under existing programs, this is just campaign B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T


• Invests in Florida, adding $3 billion more for the Kennedy Space Center to manage – a 60 percent increase.

More campaign B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T


• Makes strategic investments to develop critical knowledge, technologies, and capabilities to expand long-duration human exploration into deep space in a more efficient and safe manner, thus getting us to more destinations in deep space sooner.

Utter crap, this is all about trying to shift the responsibility onto someone else = B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T


• And puts the space program on a more ambitious trajectory that pushes the frontiers of innovation to propel us on a new journey of innovation and discovery deeper into space.

Utterer crap = B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T

The 2012 campaign has certainly begun. I wrote this to then Senator Obama in 2007. Nothing has changed. Get ready to see Russian and Chinese space stations in the sky cause BO(zo) has just tossed our space program under the bus.

  • Retired

    Obama would have been better to have said nothing than truing to bullshit his way through his decision to mothball manned spaceflight.  His credibility on this issue looks about like an asteroid entering our atmosphere.  Asteroid exploration?  While Obama’s advisors are suffering their current plague of cranial rectinitus, they should consider some hemorrhoid exploration.  Jeez!

  • goldengrahme

    Craig’s posts are always honed to a sharp edge.  He doesn’t gloss over the  obvious or dumb it down to a lexicon administration devoteés will comprehend.

    I like that in a person!

    We don’t have time to muck around for another decade while the planet roils in constant aftershocks.  Who here is shocked, I tell you shocked, by Barack’s political sleight of hand?  His whole persona is predicated on such schtick. 

    And I love the way his name lends itself to satirizing:  O’ Bummer; O’Bambi,
    O’Bot, Obamanation; BOzo, etc.  (when I was young, BO referred to body odor…but digress. :)

  • beyond_words

    Nice refreshing truthful article Craig.

    You call it like you see it, good to see ;) and thankyou.

  • getfitnow

    Yes, let’s talk to those public housing resident in the district the represented in Chicago.

  • karen for Clinton

    Oh sure, you can have all you want.  The liar produces prodigious quantity of it and there is enough for everybody.

  • AC

    Hear, Hear for Acronyms–especially when true!

  • AC

    I’ll take some of that Karen…

  • sowsear

    BO might buy it;he has no idea which states border the ocean.

  • confused American

    Remember he was a community organizer that gave him the experience to handle everything 

    Now if you believe that I have some Ocean Front property in Arizona to sell ya. 

  • Hokma

    Not one of your more poetic works, but definately hits the bullseye.

    I just wonder where Obama got all of that science knowledge to suddenly lay out his “vision” or did he get it from Jules Verne?

  • creeper

    FOX is reporting that the airport in Warsaw will be opened for dignitaries attending the president’s funeral.  Why do I get the feeling Barry was glad for an excuse to bail on this trip?

  • confused American

    Here is a

     longer version of ”I Wanna Talk About Me..

  • confused American

    He is probably the last person that they want there…. 
     
    His speech would proabably contain too many I’s

    You know like the Toby Keith Song….

  • ~~JustMe~~

    Of course regardless of the event we know he’d want to be centre of attention! One time we can breathe easy!

  • ~~JustMe~~

    Of course regardless of the event, we know he’d want to me centre of attention! One time we can breathe easy!

  • confused American

    Remember some have drinken an awlful lot of that Sleepy – Time Obama Koolade. =-O =-O

  • confused American

    You are Right about Craig spelling it out….LOL

    Good job Craig.

  • confused American

    He is probably the last person that they want there….

    His speech would proabably contain too many I’s

  • confused American

    Nice way to get out of facing the people you just stomped all over…

    I bet a few of them are now regretting voting for the LIAR!!

  • Diana L. C.

    Perhaps only those not connected to the matrix.

  • creeper

    It’s all mindless drivel.  None of it means anything.  Is today the day voters wake up?

  • jwrjr

    Obama’s speech had very few details, and all of those were BS.  Being toxic the BS is not even useful as fertilizer.

  • jwrjr

    Poland is rejoicing about that.

  • Solara 9

    Wow! Fascintaing post.  I thought it was probably BS, but nice to see it clearly spelled out.  Thanks CDP.

    A HACKER has broken into a supposedly secure NASA website and stolen blueprints for its next generation of reusable launch vehicles. This information could help rogue states put spy satellites or even space-based weapons into orbit.

    http://www.newscientist.com/article/mg17523561.100-nasas-new-shuttle-designs-stolen-by-hacker.html

    That cost the US a billion dollars in R&D. BO just killed a 10 billion dollar investment. Thief. I heard a 17 year young lady on a talk radio program say that her dream was to be an astronaut. BO is a dream killer. NO leadership.

  • Daisy Mae

    Thank you.  I don’t think you like the plan.
    Just called a waaaacist again, as a Tea party attender–that is really ticking me off.

  • TeakWoodKite

    Deep space? as defined by the emptiness between the ears of BO?

    BO is building a BULLSHIP.

    next .
    BO IS A VERY DANGEROUS LIFE FORM. His actions are ALIEN to this nation.

    Thanks Craig.

    OT but BigBoy can’t fly to Poland today, too much ash.

    MSNBC by Jay Barbree — the longtime NBC science correspondent.

    BARBREE: …I’m a little disturbed right now, Alex. I just found out some very disturbing news. The President came down here in his campaign and told these 15,000 workers here at the Space Center that if they would vote for him, that he would protect their jobs. 9,000 of them are about to lose their job. He is speaking before 200, extra hundred people here today only. It’s invitation only. He has not invited a single space worker from this space port to attend. It’s only academics and other high officials from outside of the country. Not one of them is invited to hear the President of the United States, on their own space port, speak today.

    The only reason I can think that he wants to build additional heavy lift rockets is to give some big contributor(s) big contracts
