The President’s latest teleprompter installment used analogies to how this may be our “Sputnik moment.” Is this the right comparison to use coming from the lips of the man who is cutting NASA to nothing and canceling all the planned returns to the moon in an era when the Russians and Chinese are racing to land a man on the moon in an attempt to consume its resources? Again, as the world turns Obama doesn’t see what is going on, is the man delusional, or just completely clueless?

A great editorial in the Washington Times (Wednesday, January 26, 2011) stated:

“Invoking space race metaphors is a risky proposition for Mr. Obama. On his watch NASA killed its plan to return to the moon and has scaled back most of its other programs. But competition in space is alive and well. Last October China sent an unmanned probe into Moon orbit to map possible landing sites. The People’s Republic is expected to make a manned moon landing sometime this decade………..Maybe when the red flag is flying on the lunar surface the United States will have a true Sputnik moment, the shocked realization that while the rest of mankind is making giant leaps, Obama’s America can manage only small steps.”
