President Obama Tells NASA Chief Charles Bolden That His Foremost Task is to Build Self Esteem of Muslims

What in the f*ck? I don't usually cuss on this site, but this is the most ridiculous thing I've heard in the last twenty-four (24) hours. The below quote is around the 1:25 mark in the above video.

“Bolden: I am here in the region – its sort of the first anniversary of President Barack Obama’s visit to Cairo – and his speech there when he gave what has now become known as Obama’s “Cairo Initiative” where he announced that he wanted this to become a new beginning of the relationship between the United States and the Muslim world. When I became the NASA Administrator – before I became the NASA Administrator - he charged me with three things: One was that he wanted me to re-inspire children to want to get into science and math, that he wanted me to expand our international relationships, and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with predominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science, math, and engineering.

No wonder NASA won't be going to Mars anytime soon. Instead of building self-esteem, why doesn't President Obama provide some objective goals instead of this subjective nonsense that will not help NASA be a better organization?
