I wonder what George W. Bush would have done in that situation? (0.00 / 0)
Did Bush even have a science fair while he was president? Either way, I'm sure he didn't understand anything that went on.

Probably had no interest in understanding the science, but I'd be willing to bet he's made a potato gun or two in his lifetime.  Just seems like that kinda guy.
