Men On the Moon

After the amazing success (a few failures too) of robots on Mars, Bush plans to follow this up with....

A lunar base! And humans to Mars after that.

Even after we see again and again that NASA's most amazing results scientific and public relations come from their cheap, unmanned missions, our politicians cannot figure out that this is what NASA should be spending money on. It is strange, especially when embarrassing budget disasters are the only thing that politicians usually get in return for the manned missions.
