As a state, we have to be so proud of ourselves!

He's too busy propping up President Cheeto Jesus.

A Huffington Post article? For shame.

I'm here. Just saw the below, recently revealed undercover video of you and some others in this thread response to this news.

I'm going to start off by saying he seems to be perfectly nice.

http://www.tulsaworld.com/archives/air-and-space-museum-board-members-differ-on-bridenstine/article_928a8269-a8fd-5570-ac36-0ec852a85e40.html

http://thislandpress.com/2012/10/31/rocket-to-the-moon/

Both years he ran the Tulsa Air and Space Museum were bad financially by six figures according to IRS statements. The Air Show he did (possibly the worst organized Air Show I've ever seen) lost $330,000 and it was an effort to cross-promote with the Rocket Racing League that he was financially invested in, which then went bankrupt. (that also seems like a conflict of interest to have a nonprofit you run put on an event that promotes a thing you are financially invested in)

All I have are those numbers, but I feel like there is enough smoke to suggest management of aviation things isn't his strong suit.

I went to one of his town halls. When he talks, you can hardly see his handlers lips moving. They're really good.

It just disgusts me that all these Oklahomans are managing to get pretty decent leadership positions in the executive branch. What a huge black eye to the state. Glad we have people in Oklahoma, on a website touting at least the development and improvement of at least this part no less, are doing their part to congratulate our appointees.

Now, which democratic party member takes Bridenstine's place in the House?

NASA administrators are usually scientists, engineers, or aerospace professionals because it is the world preeminent expert on space travel and is literally stuffed with rocket scientists .  It also has an $18.4 Billion budget, so most of the leaders have had experience running large bureaucracies.  So, without using memes, try to explain why Bridenstine is a good choice to run the place.

I know you are trying to be sarcastic, but you are right - it is a huge black eye to the state.  We have had a national audience to our ignorance and stupidstition from a distance for quite a while.  Most of the 'clutter' was hidden because it was only headlines that were seen.   Now the rest of the country gets to view it up close and personal.

Apparently some people like him....  But then again, I hear you can't trust Forbes or those who write articles for it.
