The President of Free Space -- Legacy of George Bush, Discovery News
"The inertia that defines the George Bush presidency may be a blessing for the space program. I'm not saying that facetiously. ... I refer to presidential candidate John McCain's request for Bush to suspend the shutdown of the space shuttle program, pending further study (post election.) McCain is listening to folks who are 1) scared of losing their jobs; and/or 2) outraged that America, the leader of the free world, the king of off-planet pursuits, will soon be in the unseemly position of depending on foreigners for rides to space."
