Obama Sticks It to A&M –oh, wait a minute..
“The Texas A&M University System has won an immense federal contract to become a national hub of vaccine production and bioterror preparedness.
“The federal contract to create a Center for Innovation in Advanced Development and Manufacturing in College Station is likely worth at least $1.5 to $2 billion over the next 25 years.
“"It's the biggest federal grant to come to Texas since NASA, quite frankly," Texas A&M University System Chancellor John Sharp said.
“Politically it comes during an election year, from a Democratic administration, to the alma mater of Gov. Rick Perry, who has made much political hay by pillorying President Barack Obama.
“"They played it right straight down the middle and gave it to the people who were best qualified, even if it's from a state and university that's not considered very Democratic," Sharp said.”
