Obama Pledges To Send Lame Duck to Mars

President Obama today promises that somehow someway, by the end of some decade in the future, maybe after we dick around a bit.

We have set a clear goal vital to the next chapter of America's story in space: sending humans to Mars by the 2030s and returning them safely to Earth, with the ultimate ambition to one day remain there for an extended time...
Its the kind of lame halfassed day late dolar short afterthought that could have been an insiprational leap foreward say had Obama cared or tried eight years ago.

As it stands it's little more than Lame Duck's pipe dream. Obama's main ambition in space was to make sure that George W Bushes plan for space will killed. No matter the resulting space ADHD, wasted time and wasted money.

In that case mission accomplished, I guess.
