Obama's R&D pledge for NASA? It's news to Charlie Bolden, Orlando Sentinel

"If the president was going to give more money to NASA, it was also news to administrator Bolden. At a Capitol Hill breakfast speech Thursday, Bolden applauded Obama's goal of raising U.S. spending on research and development , saying he hoped NASA would be included in that effort. "That's an incredible number if, in fact, he's going to do that," said Bolden, "Because I would like to have some of that."

Not nuts, but a little different, Space Politics

"A little later in [Bolden's] speech he made similar comments. "I'm not here to get used to this culture. I don't want to get used to this culture. But if you will allow me to do the job you asked me to do, I'll do it and I do it well." Also: "I won't talk about politics. I don't do politics. For those of you who want to teach me, I don't want to learn."
