The Space Shuttle not coming to Houston
Well this sucks. If there's anyplace the Shuttle should have been, it's Houston.
NASA announces new homes for retiring space shuttles - CNN.com
Ridiculous that this would be given to NY & LA and leave out Houston.
Think this has political undertones?
1000 or so people lost their jobs already, now this.
this would be like taking Jackson Square out of N.O., and giving
it to Michigan.
Remember to vote in 2012!
oh you wont have to remind me.
Presbo was testy when pressed on Space Shuttle decision.
Exclusive: President Obama gets testy when asked about shuttle | khou.com | Khou.com - News, Houston news, Texas News, Headlines
WASHINGTON — President Obama got a little testy during and after an interview with Brad Watson of WFAA in Dallas. WFAA is the sister station of KHOU 11.
Watson sat down with the president at the White House Monday afternoon to discuss the economy, immigration, the space shuttle and his approval rating.
The president this week is talking up his deficit reduction plan with town hall meetings in Western states. He explained why he thinks his plan is better than the deficit reduction plan pushed by Republicans in the House, and why he wants to pitch his plan hard in Texas.
The president said his mix of spending cuts and tax increases on the wealthy offer a balanced approach compared to the Republicans who want cuts in spending and taxes.
We met the president in the Map Room of the ground level of the White House, where he said his deficit reduction plan is better — with its higher taxes on the rich coupled with cuts.
"We can take a more balanced approach, consistent with what my fiscal commission put forward, which says $2 trillion worth of cuts."
But in Texas, the president's plan is a tough sell.
"Texas has always been a pretty Republican state, for historic reasons," Obama said.
However, the president inferred that his election meant Texas politics was changing.
"We lost by a few percentage points in Texas," Obama said. That was followed by a gentle reminder that the figure was closer to 10 percent.
