Say it loud and proud, Burt

Burt Rutan of Scaled Composites, winner of the XPrize for successfully launching a privately-financed manned craft into space twice within a week's time, on NASA:
“Look at the progress in 25 years of trying to replace the mistake of the shuttle. It's more expensive…not less…a horrible mistake,” Rutan said. “They knew it right away. And they've spent billions…arguably nearly $100 billion over all these years trying to sort out how to correct that mistake…trying to solve the problem of access to space. The problem is…it's the government trying to do it.”
