On Monday, when NASA Administrator Charles Bolden testified before Congress, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown asked whether NASA would require commercial companies and NASA's own new rockets to carry out necessary tests on the ground first.

Brown had a specific site in mind for the tests. 

"What role do  you envision Plum Brook playing?" he asked.

Bolden replied that NASA Glenn Research Center is trying to advertise what Plum Brook has to offer to commercial rocket companies needing a place to perform tests. Plum Brook is "the best facility NASA has," Bolden said.

Here's the video:

Hey Sen. Sherrod "brain surgeon" Brown, (D-OH) you are speaking to the "hand picked" NASA czar by the "anointed" one.  And his answer to you?  BUTKIS about Plum Brook.  Do you FINALLY get it yet?  Like Charles Bolden cares about YOU or Plum Brook station.  I know you will let all the SHEEP who voted for you know that you TRIED being the great liberal you are.  Ha! Ha!  Here is a tip for your liberal mind.  NASA has a NEW mission statement.  The new NASA chief was ORDERED to forget all about the SPACE program.  What is the new DICTATED mission for the SPACE administration by the boy from Chicago?  "He (0bama) wanted me to expand our international relationships.  He (0bama) wanted me to find a way to reach out to the MUSLIM WORLD and engage much more with dominantly MUSLIM nations to help them FEEL GOOD about their historic contribution to science, math and engineering."  (Charles Bolden on al-Jazerra, June 2009).  FEEL GOOD?  Oops, did you liberals forget about that?  Now, supporters of the "messiah" like John Glenn (D-OH), the FIRST American who went around the earth and one of our democrack senators is suddenly dismayed at the president he VOTED for.  He almost sounds like more and more of you with BUYERS REMORSE!  "We're putting oursleves in line for a single-point FAILURE ending the whole manned space program."  (John Glenn, June, 2009)  Wasn't NASA recently involved in that FALSE DATA on global warming?  Can you liberal, entitlement and socialists explain that?  No?  Ha! Ha!  And NOW, all of a SUDDEN, your "savior" president is involved in the 2012 budget.  Wow!  "Raise our TAXES so we get MORE!  When do WE want it?  WE want it NOW!! (Liberal, UNION freaks, Springfield, IL)  I can't wait to watch most of you to RUN to another 0bama campaign meeting so you can all FAINT at his feet.  Maybe he will be able to MAKE you all FEEL GOOD!  Ha! Ha!
