He's even more amusing than his dad

U.S. President George W. Bush (news - web sites) is pictured in this combo image falling off a Segway personal transporter on the front driveway of his parents' summer home June 12, 2003 in Kennebunkport, Maine.

All that research and technology to make sure the thing is perfectly balanced on any slope and he still finds a way to fall off of it. Even his elderly parents got on Segways without any trouble.

If he would just vomit while on the Segway my life would be complete.

This picture is a riot.

You gotta admit though, it was a nice save that he didn''t fall on his face.

Speaking as someone who has actually been on one, I can say that I''m not surprised.

You know things are back to normal when he has time to take a break from his daily/weekly Tennis vacation to ride the new ""tongue-in-cheek"" toy of the rich.

Now they''re saying it''s a ""conspiracy"". If it were, it would be a pretty dumb one.

Bush knows the possible effect of an image of the nation''s commander in chief nearly doing a face plant because of an odd new contraption. In 1899, William McKinley became the first U.S. president to try an automobile. Freelan Stanley took big ol'' McKinley for a spin in a Stanley Steamer. Imagine if McKinley fell out. The pro-horse contingent would''ve been in PR paradise.

The conspiracy theory is bolstered by this: It''s nearly impossible to fall off a Segway. Seventy-nine-year-old George H.W. Bush didn''t fall off the one he got from his sons for Father''s Day. Barbara Bush also got one, and she didn''t fall off hers.""

I think that was supposed to be a tongue-in-cheek piece, Mex, and not entirely serious. At least, I hope it''s supposed to be.

I thought the same until the guy was on MSNBC saying he was serious.

I''ve drawn some pretty thin conclusions in the past, but this guy is really pushing the envelope.

Yeah, I imagined it was kind of a joke, I can''t believe he''s serious.
