Obama Flips on Space Exploration | Election Geek Blog 2008 Election News 24/7
The Houston Chronicle has a story on the â€œevolvingâ€ position of Senator Obama on Space Exploration that looks more like a complete â€œflipâ€ than a slow progression in plans to me. Previously the Senator had been against extending the soon to be retired shuttle fleet to one more flight, opposed a Congressional plan to add $2 Billion to NASAâ€™s budget, had stated he would delay the development of the shuttleâ€™s successor throughout his presidency in order to fund early childhood education and had previously told the Chronicle he â€œwas not convinced that human exploration was worth the cost.â€
Now Obama has changed his position on all of these positions. Why the sudden change? While there is no real explanation as of yet can anyone say FLORIDA? The RNC can:
â€œObamaâ€™s shifting stance on space exploration is indicative of his inexperience on issues important to voters,â€ said Republican National Committee spokesman Alex Conant. â€œLetâ€™s be honest: Obama is only embracing NASA now because of his political problems in Florida.â€
