Boy Scouts Can’t Vote (Yet!)

Obama chooses not to appear at the Boy Scout Jamboree. People are surprised. Why? The campaigner in chief chose to make an appearance on Harpies r Us in a (fingers crossed) vain attempt at luring back voters who are abandoning him as fast as snow melts in July.

Obama Won’t Speak In-Person at Boy Scouts’ 100th Anniversary Celebration But Will Appear on ABC TV’s ‘The View’

Bob Dries, chairman of national news and media at the Boy Scouts of America Jamboree – a gathering that happens every four years and attracts thousands of scouts from around the world – told that the organization was told on Monday that the president had scheduling conflicts and would not be speaking in-person at the week-long event.

The BSA had scheduled its Wednesday arena program to include remarks by the president at 11 a.m. in front of the more than 45,000 scouts who will be in attendance.


In a statement about his appearance on the “The View,” ABC said it would be “the first time in history a sitting United States president has visited a daytime talk show.”

In an e-mail, White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer told The New York Times that Obama’s appearance on “The View” had been “contemplated for several weeks because the president was scheduled to be in New York City for a fund-raiser,” and that the appearance “was nailed down early last week.

How disrespectful! They notified the Boy Scouts on Monday? The Harpies R Us show is on five days a week all year is it not? The Jamboree is- like Presidential elections – every four years.

I am not surprised though- the Boy Scouts – for the most part- (unless their names are stolen by ACORN) are not yet registered to vote. No need for the fraud to talk to little non-voters.Besides, all those American Flag, Pledging Allegiance and the ideals of duty to God and country probably give the fraud the hives.

I noted that the SecDef spoke to the Scouts. So they recognize the Scouts are Patriots in Training.

For the curious here is a refresher- the Boy Scout Oath

Boy Scout Oath or Promise

On my honor, I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.

OK- Right there in the first clause- that word “HONOR” leaves Obama out already. Duty to God? Not. (Unless we are talking that Islamofascist woman hating one.) Duty to Country? Well- that is another blog post or two or two thousand- he hates our country.

How about the Boy Scout Law

Boy Scout Law

  • Trustworthy,

  • and Reverent.

  1. The Boy Scouts are an American Institution respected through many generations.

    Only someone with little respect for something so traditionally American, would diss the Boy Scouts in lieu of playing and strutting on a tv talk show. Only someone so incapable of accomplishing anything worthwhile as an elected representative of the people of this country, would choose such a venue over that which is as American as apple pie, the national group which stands for respect for all things American.

    Then again, only those who grew up in this country and were ingratiated in the fabric and enjoyed all of the culturalisms for which this country stands, would easily know the significance of what the Boy Scounts are all about.

  2. notified them on Monday
    This brings to mind the New England high school boy who was to sing the national anthem at an obama rally during the primaries. The kid had practiced and was told, like this instance, last minute that there was not time for his solo. Believe McCain had him sing at a rally shortly thereafter.

  3. I know that everything this Pres does is historic, however, Didn’t President Bush have Doctor Phil on his show? So he is not as historic as his aides make him out to be, no?,,703228,00.html
