Watched the event live on NASA TV with my daughter.  It seemed very nerve racking for some control room members and the announcement of touchdown was met by cheers and laughter as recorded by the video.  We had the same reaction.  This seemed too complex to work but they overcame the odds.  Now what will the Muslims in charge do with the program. 8888crybaby
"Obama has made numerous attempts to quote Lincoln, SO WHY DOESN'T OBAMA USE THIS FAMOUS LINCOLN QUOTE:

"You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence.
You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves."
