. . . or just another really good pick by a really good president, depending on your point of view, of course.

Shouldn't this be in the politics thread? If your going to politic and throw your opinion in, that is where it should be - it doesn't matter that the appointment is NASA.

Well some Republican senators also believe it is a bad pick.

Nasa so I put it here .. Sorry it bugged you but for a guy who said he would drain the swamp all that liar has done as filled postion with yes men and women . The guy is a Train wreck happening right before out eyes, and sadly the most embarrassing President of all time.

No.

He rejects climate science. That should be a deal breaker for this position.

But that's not even the worst of it. He thinks we should fund NASA less and have the private sector do more. I feel there is value in having that point of view represented within the government, but not at the head of NASA.

Everything is an argument about allocations and people arguing for a bigger piece of the pie for themselves and less for others. You shouldn't screw with the balance this way by appointing opposition to head organizations (applies to the DoE and EPA too). Let's appoint some extreme pacifists to head up our military and someone from Greenpeace to head up our infrastructure spending and energy policy while we're at it. Maybe we can find a anti-vaxxer homeopathic yoga guru to regulate medicine and make the department of agriculture a subsidiary of PETA.

How can anyone see this as anything but stupid?

Nasa would appreciate it if you would all stop calling in about planet X, there is no such dooms day object approaching earth.

I didn't open the link - is it Larry Hagman?

Because that's who I would have picked.

Oh. It's somebody else.

I don't think the guy's view on climate change matters that much.

There's not a lot of evidence that the climate is changing in outer space, and even if it is, I don't think we're contributing to it that much.
