If Obama has in mind making enemies out of the Boy Scouts then he is a fool.
That would be like making enemies with 100,000+ MacGyvers, across the Nation and around the world. That would be like unleashing the A-Team upon one’s self: not just one A-Team, but thousands of them, around each street corner, waiting to spring into action. Boy Scouts make al Qaeda look like girlie men (well, because they are — but that’s beside the point!)
I would not want to have the Boy Scouts for enemies. No way! They are infinitely resourceful, cunning, and always prepared. And they stand for good wholesome values, and they never give up.
Their proud alumni would reach into all branches of life and well into the military and corporate circles. Once a Scout, always a Scout.
He is a fool to meddle with them. There are a lot of votes in the Scouting movement.
