    What they need to do is get The Obama behind one of their miniguns.
    Test to see if it makes Him want to commit some sort of violent crime.

    Didn't they already revisit it, and destroy the possibility for it even more?

    Man, there are so many cooler ways to promote science. A bunch of mirrors reflecting sunlight in a manner that can't even burn cardboard?

    Mr. President, you have the US Air Force at your disposal. Grab that airborne laser test plane and fire an actual death ray.

    Anyone else see the irony in Obama choosing the option that's already been tried (repeatedly), and shown to fail (repeatedly)? There seems to be a pattern here.

    Sounds like the same reasoning he used in picking his economic advisors.

    I thought Obama could multitask?

    Actually, I think is right up Obama's ally. If he's spending time enjoying the perks of being the prez, then that's less time he has to spend creating policies that are damaging and counter-productive to the country.

    I mean, you can't blame him for having as much fun as he can. He know's he's not going to get elected to a second term, so he has to make the best of this one.

    Aren't you the guy who called it a national tragedy that Obama didn't attend the National Boy Scout Jamboree, an 8 day event, but its terrible to make a cameo on a 45 minute episode of Mythbusters?

    I really see how anyone, without being a hypocrite, can talk about this being a waste of time with the large degree of energy and passion they are using without blasting the same level of energy at every other President.

    I mean seriously, I'm pretty sure they've done the Archimedes Death Ray before.
    I was pretty darn sure they did this one before too.

    Did you actually read what I said? Seriously, did you??

    While we're at it, I don't reacall saying anything about Obama spending 8 days at a Boy Scout camp. Although, I think the country would have benefitted from his absence.
