I think it's kind of silly for him to be going on Mythbusters. But He's the president he can do what he wants I guess. My only problem is that I'm afraid that episode of Mythbusters is going to be kind of lame and pointless since Death Ray has been done to death. I mean the closest I've seen to a death ray is that there is a hotel in Vegas that is basically a giant parabolic dish and it makes the swimming pool area 10-20 degrees warmer (So it can reach temps of like 110-120, but that's highly uncomfortable temperatures, not death ray temperatures) So I feel it will be a worthless episode, and the President will just be there to make talking points. Waste of an episode.
There was certainly no need for Obama to stay for 8 days... a 30 minute appearance would have been appropriate.
Apparently, the President was too busy appearing on The View to address the Scouts... as MANY other Presidents have historically done at the Jamboree (the three presidents before Obama all had made appearances). It was also the 100th anniversary.
Did you know President Obama was made the honorary President of the Boy Scouts of America in March of 2009?
But I guess that's just me.
I was confused, but came in with the knowledge that more than likely it was an attempt to harp on math and science education. I was right. The message was right, but I question the end result in who or what they pick.
Intrinsically, I'm not against the President having some touches of Education Public Service Announcements, in fact, I am for them.

"No religion is true, but some religion, any religion, is politically necessary. Law and morality are insufficient for the large majority of men. Obedience to the law and to the morals are insufficient for making men happy. […]Law and morality are therefore in need of being supplemented by divine rewards and punishments."
Using modern technology like that used to concentrate sun light on a central location in a solar plant like the one outside of Barstow California would set fire to almost anything in seconds.
Obama is just trying to look like a normal person but it won't work for this Marxist now or ever.
If there's a god, damn it she won't mind.
If there's a god, baby she won't mind.
