BHO Told NASA: Make Muslims Feel Good

From Al Jazeera, via YouTube:

Talk to Al Jazeera – Charles Bolden

Bolden: I am here in the region – its sort of the first anniversary of President Barack Obama’s visit to Cairo – and his speech there when he gave what has now become known as Obama’s "Cairo Initiative" where he announced that he wanted this to become a new beginning of the relationship between the United States and the Muslim world.

When I became the NASA Administrator – before I became the NASA Administrator – he charged me with three things: One was that he wanted me to re-inspire children to want to get into science and math, that he wanted me to expand our international relationships, and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with predominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science, math, and engineering."

Question: Are you in some sort of diplomatic role .. to win hearts and minds?

Bolden: NO NO, not at all. Its not a diplomatic anything. What it is – is that it is trying to expand our outreach so that we get more people who can contribute to the things that we do – the international Space Station is as great as it is because we have a conglomerate of about 15 plus nations who have contributed something to that partnership that has made it what it is today …

So, in effect, Mr. Obama told NASA to make Muslims feel good about all their ‘historic contributions to science, math and engineering.” – And the truth be damned.

Meanwhile, we no longer have a real space program.

    Obama really puts the “what a dumb effing a-hole” in “absurd”.

    Transparency alright. Cater to the terrorists, kiss their behinds, and, just like every feel-good program in this country thus far, it will fail miserably. Mostly though because the muslim nations know when they are being lied to. Unlike here, it would seem.

    No, we wouldn’t want them to feel bad about anything they’ve ever done. We must “reach out” and kiss the ass that ___ts on us. It’s unbelievable the number of ways this boy who sits in the president’s chair demonstrates not only his disloyalty to the United States, but his disregard for the laws of this nation, its people and their wishes.

    Well, sooner or later it will all blow up in his face. It has to. His inability to plan for unexpected consequences will take him completely by surprise. Or it may be something as simple as being caught in bed with a young male page.

    When people like this start really enjoying their power, they head towards self-destruction. Only the boot-lickers of his administration can protect him and they’ll do that if they see the potential for their cushy “jobs” to go away. But he’ll get abusive, explosive and go beyond the beyonds. Mark my words.

    I thought Muslims were already trigger happy. Now we have to make them space-happy, too?

    So, no, it’s not a diplomatic thing at all. It’s an affirmative action thing. Which, of course, has worked so well in this nation, what with our imminently qualified president and all.

    So, let me get this straight, we’ve seen suicide attackers go full tilt in most every walk of life here in the US. All of whom were undetected until it was essentially too late. Imagine what kind of damage they could do by destroying the international space station from within. What a display that would make.

    Give me a break!!!!
    Jihad in space?

    Still I asked the question, “What contributions to science, math and engineering?”
    (other than they are good at engineering terror amongst the populace)

    • untrainable says:

      Beer was invented by the ancient Egyptians!
      They weren’t muslims though.

      Uh… Hmmmm.. uhrumahhhhh… the uh…, and of course the… uh…
      Well, I’m sure there were many things. The fact that nobody remembers them means nothing.

      Next time Obie spouts off on this subject, someone in the crowd should say… “Like What?” In the style of “You Lie!”. And with that same conviction (and no apology afterwards… wusses.)

  5. Right of the People says:

    I’m all for sending them all into space as long as it’s a one way ticket. Allah is probably out there anyways at least that’s what they think.

  6. bobbys says:

    What happened to separation of Church and State when we have to help MUSLIM nations?.

    What next for NASA?.

    Helping RAP artists spin their LPs backwards more efficient ?

    Arabic numerals. Putting a man on the moon.

    No difference.

    • Steve says:

      They’re not “Arabic Numbers,” anyway. They are Hindu numbers:

      As befitting their history, the digits (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9) are more appropriately known as Hindu or Hindu-Arabic numerals. The reason that they are more commonly known as “Arabic numerals” in Europe and the Americas is that they were introduced to Europe in the tenth century from Arabs of North Africa, who were then using the digits from Libya to Morocco. Europeans did not know about the numerals’ roots in ancient India, so they named them “Arabic numerals”

      Arabic numerals – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

      The Muslims want to kill off the Hindus even more than they want to kill us.

    • proreason says:

      That was all before the Prophet revealed everything anyway.

      There really isn’t anything more to invent.

      If and when Allah wants people to be on the moon, he will give us magic rugs to get us there.

  8. GL0120 says:

    Excuse me, PR, but when you refer to the prophet, are you talking about Mohamed or Obama?

  9. Chuckk says:

    Maybe NASA could invite a jihadist to visit the space station. Of course once aboard he might try to crash it into a building.

  10. beautyofreason says:

    From going to Mars…to improving the self-esteem of a specific religion and its members.

    At least now we know that the space effort is dead, save for what remains of the private sector.

    I seem to remember a Muslim man named Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan who worked in a nuclear plant in the Netherlands. Tolerant, eh?

    He is the reason why Islamic Pakistan now has nuclear weapons, which are within arm’s reach of the infantile barbarians known as the Taliban.

    So please, by all means give people who want to live under 7th century theocratic law a nice pat on the back for copying – not inventing – the Western technology that runs all modern societies. And of course, for misusing those technologies in noble pursuits like driving planes into skyscrapers.

    80 years ago Saudi Arabia was made up of slave owning nomads who viewed photography as satanic. Without oil I suspect most Muslim nations in the Middle East would still be moronic nomads with economies befitting their 7th century beliefs.

  11. AmericanIPA says:

    Muslim math: 1 billion muslims + 1 jew= too many jews
    muslim science: the blood of jews and Americans is acidic. So is soapy water, so stay away!
    muslim engineering: wrap bomb belt tightly and yell “allahu akbar” when running into pizza joint.
