In a speech in Cape Canaveral, Fla., on Friday, Romney said he doesn’t currently have a grand vision for the U.S. space program, the Washington Post reported. However, he said, if elected, he would bring together the nation’s top experts in government and the private sector to decide what its mission should be.

“Before you make tough decisions, you start off by saying what’s the objective?” Romney said, according to the Post. “And then you say what’s the data and see what information you have. And then you create hypotheses, to see what different choices might be, and then you choose one… [and] you expect a leader to deliver and get it done.”

...according to Space.com. “We support Mitt’s candidacy and believe that his approach to space policy will produce results instead of empty promises.”

Huhnnhh?? What approach…sounds like the endorsement comes from their cerebral space…so they prefer empty thought to what they consider to be “empty promises”. Given that attitude, perhaps they have themselves to blame for lackluster vision justifying the expansion of the space program.
