NASA Has Become
A Transition Problem
For Obama

by Robert Block - December 10th, 2008 - Orlando Sentinel

Tensions were on public display last week at the NASA library, as overheard by guests at a book party.

According to people who were present, [John] Logsdon, a space historian, told a group of about 50 people he had just learned that President John F. Kennedy’s transition team had completely ignored NASA.

[NASA administrator Mike] Griffin responded, in a loud voice, “I wish the Obama team would come and talk to me.”

Alan Ladwig, a[n Obama] transition team member who was at the party with [Lori ] Garver [Obama transition head], shouted out: “Well, we’re here now, Mike.”

Soon after, Garver and Griffin engaged in what witnesses said was an animated conversation. Some overheard parts of it.

“Mike, I don’t understand what the problem is. We are just trying to look under the hood,” Garver said.

“If you are looking under the hood, then you are calling me a liar,” Griffin replied. “Because it means you don’t trust what I say is under the hood.

The tone of the Obama administration is starting to become more and more obvious, as the extreme leftists who are moving into power start to flex their muscles. As people like Carol Browner, with her arrogant indifference to following the law and her blatant efforts to punish anyone who is not "green enough" to suit her, show up as leaders in the energy and science fields. It does not indicate Obama will be tolerant of anyone who does not believe in his extreme agenda.
