A disappointing decision to cancel the manned space program by our play-not-to-lose president. First the F-22, the world's most advanced fighter jet, and now the most advanced human spaceflight program gets the ax. It's puzzling why he spends arbitrarily huge amounts on fruitless programs and then prides himself on cutting productive ones.
