Obama has gotten exactly 1 thing right his entire presidency

And that’s his stance on the role of Commercial Space for manned launches. Now, to be perfectly clear, he took that stance because most Space industry districts are Republican, so his was a political decision instead of some belief that government can’t do manned exploration. But the end result has been a much bigger role for the Commercial Space industry.

Case in point: House committee Republicans question SLS Orion schedule changes, and criticizing the Obama administration for not funding NASA enough.

Look, I get that Representatives need to fight for industries in their district, but the SLS/Orion project is a loser that ultimately is a waste of taxpayer money. You’d think Republican representatives would get that, and instead incentivize the commercial space industry within their own districts.
