Nice To Know That He Has The Time....!

First of all, let me just say that I love the "Mythbusters"!

It's not only an entertaining show, but it also is educational! At least I learn something from it nearly every time I watch! I never thought that I would see the day that anyone involved in politics would be interested in learning something! It's been my understanding that they already knew everything! If you don't believe it...just ask them!

Anyway, I found this story in the Houston Chronicle to be quite a surprise, to say the least!

Obama to appear on TV's 'Mythbusters'

WASHINGTON, Oct. 18 (UPI) -- U.S. President Barack Obama has confirmed he will soon be seen on the Discovery Channel science series "Mythbusters."

"I'm pleased to welcome Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage, known as the 'mythbusters.' I can announce today that I taped a special guest appearance for their show, although I didn't get to blow anything up," Obama said Monday at the White House Science Fair in Washington. "I was a little frustrated about that."

Hyneman and Savage attended Monday's "Educate to Innovate" event, which kicked off the Obama administration's campaign for science, technology, engineering and math awareness.

Obama is to appear on the Dec. 8 edition of the show in which he will challenge the hosts to revisit an ancient and controversial myth: Did Greek scientist and polymath Archimedes set fire to an invading Roman fleet using only mirrors and the reflected rays of the sun?

"Prepared to test this myth in a way they've never been able to before, will Adam and Jamie be able to pull it off, or will they have to report back to the president that they failed?" Discovery said in a news release.

Now doesn't it just warm the heart to know that the PTB have "fixed" all the problems in the country and now have the time to devote to being on a television show? I know that it helps me to sleep better at night! NOT!

What brazen audacity to stop working at the job he is supposed to be doing so that he can impress us all with being on a television show! I, for one, am not impressed with his sense of priorities!

I guess this type of action should come as no surprise, since the past actions or lack there-of, have shown just how unconcerned the folks in government are with the average, day to day, struggles of the common man!

Now, my friends, let's get some fresh coffee and sit outside! I need something to get this bad taste out of my mouth!

Thanks Hermit Jim for your comment. Good to see you have taken the ball and run with it...in a professional manner...I just spout.

Well since he has fixed the economy and jobs situation,guess he needed a break.Myth busters won't save him!


Ben in Texas said...

Well, again ole wise one, you are preaching to the choir!! Shoot we all agree with ya,. and I agree with ya, shame they won't let him blow up anything..

Maybe Obama needs to head to Afgahnistan and Iraq, where things blow up all the time...oh, wait. Visiting American soldiers in a war zone isn't part of his desperate narcissic need to win approval.

What he an other television stars don't realize is that a lot of people watch their train wreck lives for entertainment...not because they admire or feel any compassion for them.

Bubba - you said it well - how about some chocolate chip cookies to take away the bad taste?

See you tonite, but sadly, without the cookies -

Big hugs -

JoJo said...

Good Morning My Special One.
Maybe they are going to bust all the Myths about Obama being real.
It is all about him being soooooo smart right?
Do lets have some coffee and I will bring the cookies to wash away this nasty taste in our mouths.

Momlady said...

Guess that's one show I won't watch.

Dizzy-Dick said...

They ought to look into the myth of his missing birth cetrificate. :o(

Mechanic in Illinois said...

Thanks for the info, now I need to add that to my not watching list. The list is getting longer and soon I won't be watching the boobtube at all.

HermitJim said...

Hey Sissy...
I have to thank you for giving me the drive to do this story! After reading your take on it, I couldn't help myself!

Hope you don't mind me taking from your idea a bit...

Thanks for coming by today!

Hey China...
Same he has to demean such a good show!

Yep, he has been working sooooo hard, he needs a break! I guess that 3 or 4 vacations just aren't enough!

Thanks for dropping by today, buddy!

Hey Ben...
Given his track record of destroying most everything he touches...not letting him play with explosives might be a good idea!

Glad yo agree with me, my friend, and glad you could come by today!

Hey Sis...
I appreciate the thought, but I have to stop eating and drinking today anyway. Also I'm supposed to stop smoking at least 24 hours before the procedure! Good luck with that!

Looking forward to seeing you and I appreciate you driving me to the eye clinic!

Hey JoJo...
Not as cool here today as I would have liked, but the sun is shining! Coffee on the patio with friends is always nice, and the cookies will help! I save mine until tomorrow!

Thanks, sweetie, for coming over!

Hey Momlady...
I may just have to miss it as well! Pretty bad when having the prez on your show makes the ratings drop!

I appreciate you coming over today!

Hey Dizzy...
Don't t6hink they will tackle that one, because they want things they can actually prove or disprove!

Taking on that one would mean getting into things they aren't supposed to have access t6o!

Would be interesting, though!

Thanks for dropping in today!

HermitJim said...

Hey Mechanic...
Why doesn't he just quit trying to impress us all with how wise he is?

I for one don't want him on my television anywhere!

Thanks for coming over today, my friend!

Catman said...

Bah! More fodder for the fools among us.

HermitJim said...

Hey Catman...
What exactly is he trying to show us? Does he think that most of us actually care if he is on television?

This guy is so out of touch with the average American it's pathetic!

Like I said, I am NOT impressed!

Hey, thanks buddy...for coming by today!

He probably sees a use for Archimedes invention to cremate the elderly cheaply. Now all he has to do is convince us all to do ourselves in so he can use it.

Tatersmama said...

Remind me to turn the tv off on that night. My opinion of the "Mythbusters" just went down several notches, and now they've joined ranks with most of the women on "The View".
Maybe he's trying to follow in Lindsey Lohan's footsteps - everytime you turn around, she's in your face once again and I'm thinking that they're hoping that familiarity = interest.
As if.

Maybe they can just blow him up and be done with it. ;)

Well, Jim, business has been so bad that when pesky telemarketers call my business, I tell them, "We have no money. As long as Obama and the tax hikers are in power, there will be no money. Call when someone who understands how business works is in power, and maybe the economy will pick up."

And my 14 year old would be much more impressed to be on Mythbusters than the Obaminator is. It would also do a lot more to inspire kids to like math and science if kids were guests on the show instead of some old guy.

Yeah, your news will help my sleep problems, too.

Marjie said...

Or, just maybe, like Katie said, they'll blow him up!

HermitJim said...

Hey TFFNGuy...
Sad thing is, this is a myth that they have tried before! He can't even get some new idea to bring to the table! Typical for a politician!

Glad I know when the show is going to be on...so I won't watch!

Thanks for dropping by today!

Hey Katie...
It's a shame that he doesn't focus on something he understands and does well...like messing things up!

It's going to take a lot more than appearing on a popular television show to impress me, I'm afraid!

Hey, I appreciate you coming by today, my friend!

Hey Marjie...
You know, having some kids on the show would be a pretty good idea!I'm sure the kids would get a bang out of it, and as long as they didn't show the kids how to create anything explosive...it would be educational as well!

After all, the two host are nothing more than big kids themselves!

I sure do appreciate you taking the time to come by today!
