Space execs hope to rocket Romney

Eight former space executives threw their support behind Mitt Romney Friday, hoping to boost the candidate in a state with enormous stakes in America's space program.

In an open letter, the leaders said Romney was the candidate best positioned to reignite a program they said had languished under President Barack Obama.

    is that the only good thing about him? is there anything untiflipg or redeeming about him? if he were somehow enlightening even while being disturbing i'd still think he at least deserves consideration.however, definitely aesthetically pleasing doesn't necessarily equal good presidential canditate in my mind. I can think of a few physical features that i would classify as not good even though they are meant to be nice to look at .but how does the nation ever come to a consensus on something like this anyway?

    Yeah, I’m sure that they think that Romney could finance it on his own.. The more that we understand what Romney is all about the more we understand that Obama really is the only steadfast adult in the room.

    The real solution to the space program will look more like the collaboration of people like Rutan and Paul Allen currently going on to build an affordable launch system that would involve some talent from NASA with private funding.

      Why is Obama good, or great in my mind? This is a classic cairafn american similar to O.J. Simpson or Harriet Tubman, but a lot better. Obama takes you to a ghetto bred to fight, a ghetto unheard of. When the child is 8 they kick them out of the city to buy crack for themselves and come back true pimps. They are real pimps, it is a ghetto that thrives on drugs and crime, and when challenged by the biggest white man, they send the 300 best pimps against the government's consent. This Man stands out to me because, yes he is aesthetically pleasing, but He is a great story of a nation that does not know grammar, does not know what wheat bread is. I would go vote for this Representative at least four times in the booth. He is the best cairafn american I have seen in quite some time. He is a must vote

    I see. Romney has a great vision of Space here at home. Good luck to NASA! Let's hope NASA can be true to boss' name as quickly as possible.
