Now the Republican Presidential Candidates Are Abandoning Our Nation’s Human Space Flight Program

Credit NasaWatch

Last night in the New Hampshire Republican Presidential debates, all the candidates were asked, “…whether they would continue Federal Funding for Human Space flight.”  Not one single candidate raised their hand.  Not a single one! You can read the story here.

Watch them change their tune when they campaign in TX, FL, AL, and other states that host HSF Centers or are connected to HSF. I’m sure they will be just like Obama and lie to the people in those states.

This does not bode well.

Update:  Congresswoman Sandy Adams wrote to me and said she talked with Congresswoman Michelle Bachman on the House floor about the matter. Representative Michelle Bachman claimed she had her hand up but was not recognized by the moderator. Since I haven’t been able to find the video yet to view it, I can’t confirm if Representative Bachman is telling the truth or not.

Update #2 December 15th, 2011.  Newt Ginrich said a couple days ago in Iowa that he now wants Federal Funding for Human Space Flight.  Since it is only about month away before the Florida primary, I’m not surprised he is now changing his position on HSF as I predicted above.  Do I believe him?  No I don’t.
