I don’t think showing off for a bunch of school kids is an excuse to patronize them and a group of brave men and women. Barack Obama proved he knows nothing about space and absolutely nothing about kids. YOU DON’T PATRONIZE THEM, but then he patronizes everyone – anyway.

Only a total and complete idiot, or a 5 year old 4 year old kid in kindergarten would be talking to astronauts in orbit and comment on the fact that they are not “flying” around up there and want to know if they are tied down or something!
