Bill, I agree with most of what you have said here, though I would disagree with your point on the public's attitude. Most polls show that Americans generally favor the space program and think it worthy of funding. I think your last point is absolutely on the mark - politicians have come to believe that any goal, if funded "properly" can be achieved. I don't know if this is really a belief or rather the desire for control. Given what our government has done in the last 7 months, I suspect the latter.
