Obama's tumblr page offers Neil Armstrong a tribute but one of the first things he did when he became president was to give NASA the funds that it needs to continue the space program.

Hellooooo! He stopped the constellation project and the shuttle mission. The Mars project is the tail end of a project that existed before Obama. Hellooooo!
The shuttle program ended because they were all old...
Obama did not put another manned space exploration plan in place.
Really? What about the space launch system (SLS) and the Orion spacecraft? http://www.nasa.gov/pdf/664158main_sls_fs_master.p...
All these decisions are NASA's...
Yes, let's tell of those out of work engineers here in Texas who are seeing shrinks because they are considering suicide as they can't find work now that the shuttle program is gone and nothing is replacing it. Some of America's brightest destroyed.
It was not NASA's decision to cancel constellation and the orion spacecraft is unmanned. Jeez, koolaid drinkers.
The initial Orion test launch will be unmanned. It is however absolutely intended to be a manned craft. Constellation was over-budget, under-funded, and behind schedule.
I don't support the Obama administration any more than you do. But I also do not support partisan attacks based on misinformation. Cassie is wrong. Obama ended a bad program, not the entire manned space program and he has NOT reduced NASA's budget.
