MSNBC Anchor Spins for Obama after NBC Reporter Slams Him for NASA Cuts | NewsBusters.org
More of same. President Obama tells 15,000 NASA workers that if they vote for him, he'll protect their jobs. Then he slashes NASA. Now he gives the "We're going to Mars, Kennedy rehash speech" and not a single NASA employee is in attendance- At the Kennedy Space Center!
From the transcript of the MSNBC story:
BARBREE: But I'm a little disturbed right now, Alex. I just found out some very disturbing news. The President came down here in his campaign and told these 15,000 workers here at the Space Center that if they would vote for him, that he would protect their jobs. 9,000 of them are about to lose their job. He is speaking before 200, extra hundred people here today only. It's invitation only. He has not invited a single space worker from this space port to attend. It's only academics and other high officials from outside of the country. Not one of them is invited to hear the President of the United States, on their own space port, speak today. Back to you Alex.
