A special Iowahawk guest commentary by Barack Obama, stargazer-in-chief.

Neil’s passing gives all of us all pause to consider deeper questions. What does it mean for the future of space exploration? How proud would Neil have been to have a famous historic president refer to him by first name? And, most importantly, how did his death inspire that historic president to make ever more gigantic leaps for mankind?

The commentary might be satire written by Dave Burge, but the photo at the link is real, our President’s idea of honoring Neil Armstrong, with a photo of himself.

Not the same kind of photo legacy that Neil Armstrong left us.

    Hardly a surprise (the picture), but you’d have thought some grown up in the WH would have mentioned (in hushed tones and in passing) that the death of the first human to set foot on another world wasn’t really about Obama. On the other hand, this is the guy who tried to sell the Olympic Committee on Chicago on the premise that it would be such a great moment for him to be able to preside over such an event. The term self-absorbed is an understatement with Obama.
