talk to me

I just saw Obama's Thursday talk on his plans for NASA on CSPAN. He presented them in a well-reasoned way. It made me sad because it highlighted how unusual it is for politicians to do this. It's like when Bloomberg was talking about long-term planning for NYC, something I'd never heard of before. Maybe some of Obama's ideas are flawed. Is it really a good plan for private companies to build the next generation of rockets while NASA researches the one after that? There's the basic question: will any long-term plans survive the political process. But the presentation is at least respectful, as if both the questions and the citizens deserve thought. Of course, loves the buzzwords.
