Do you sometimes read some article or a news item and go HEH?
From the “I do not believe what I am reading” department comes this latest wisdom from the White house published on the front page of FOXNews entitled “NASA Chief: Next Frontier Better Relations With Muslim World“. Apparently, Obama does not think much of Hilary Clinton’s leadership, so he is asking the only US agency he has not disturbed up to now to continue apologizing on his behalf and 300 other million Americans.
But more important than the article itself are the 1,433 comments and 7,135 recommendations it earned (as of 9:00pm EST on 7/5/2010), the majority unbelievably negative towards this new directive from a White House that just met with King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia and is about to meet PM Benjamin Netanyahu. Never before have I seen so many comments published in response to an article.
However, having lived a Saudi life, I must say that something does not smell right to me here.Â Asking NASA to engage with the Muslim world after Obama meets with the Saudi King has all the elements of a conspiracy. Is Obama already thinking he needs a large endowment from Saudi Arabia after he leaves office in 2012? Or is this just another one of those naive presidential directives disconnected from reality? I can see the faces of all those who voted for Obama at NASA just gazing into the sky and asking themselves “What have we done”? The Tea Party is about to receive the endorsement of a thousand NASA scientists, I think.
Do you think Obama wants to train and send a Hezbollah or a Hamas terrorist to Mars as just another form of apology to me and my Muslim fellows? That’s OK Mr. Obama, no need to apologize anymore. We heard you when you spoke in Egypt and we are not impressed at all.
Is Biden goofiness rubbing on Obama?Â I never, in my wildest dreams, imagined the direction Obama is taking this country towards and it would not surprise me at all if this idea came from the very same brainy people who dispatched Microsoft and Dell to Syria in the hope they can plant spying technology without Syrian knowledge.
My sense is the whole team at the White House came from Mars and it is trying to send some Islamists there and rebuild them to their image to fend off criticism. For that, Obama needs to commandeer the Shuttle Program at NASA, which he certainly has with this new absurd idea. This has to be the only explanation.
For those who pray, please recite a prayer tonight to save our president and to send him back to Mars safe and sound in 2012.
