Anyone, who thinks for one minute that Mr. Gingrich was not playing to the folks at N.A.S.A. when he stated he would put a permanent base on the moon, is in need of psychiatric help. Candidates will say anything to get the votes they need. Should, Newt get elected President I would guess the moon base will go away so fast you would think it had rabies.
Playing devil's advocate and let's just say that Gingrich was serious and decided to try to put a colony on the moon. Imagine just how much that would cost and I don't think all of us will be in the mix to have a dog in this fight. Sure, we will be told it will generate quadrillion jobs that will range from landscaping to C.E.O. of Goldman Sacs….lunacy division.
Making promises you will never keep must have started with the chicken in every pot and a vehicle in every garage. Honestly, can we agree that everything any politician says is a lie until proven otherwise.
