I admitted in an earlier post that I knew very little about the shuttle program and hence, could not speak with any real authority. However, since hearing George Cernan take shots at Obama and placing absolute blame for the canceling of the program, I elected to read more. Since then, I have learned a great deal. It was Bush that cancelled the program in 2005. Obama was simple carrying out what his predecessor put in place.
George W. Bush stated,
“We cannot find any justification to continue the deficit funding of a program that has no application other that proving that with enough money America can do anything,” said Bush.
