George Bush Junior NASA statement

This morning brought terrible and great sadness to our country.
...
The Columbia is lost, There are no survivors.
... READ THE NAMES
Because of their courageand dynamism, daring and idealism, we will miss them all the more
...
In age when space flight has come to seem almost routine it is easy to overlook the dangers of traveling by rocket.
...
The cause for which they died will continue... Or journey into space will go on.
...
In
the words of the phrophet Isaiah... [missed the words] "Lift your eyes and look to the heavens. Who created all these? He who brings out the starry hosts one by one, and calls them each by name. Because of His great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing."
... Because of his great power and mighty strength none of the seven are missing.

The crew of the Space Shuttle Columbia did not return safely to Earth but we can pray they are all safely [missed word, home?]

NB: The rhythm of the three-minute speech did not make notes easy. I will post transcript later.

[not a shot at BUSH, but why can't presidents just get up to the microphone and speak from the heart, with out choosing backdrops, locations, consulting speechwriters etc.]
