Posted on 03/03/2009 2:59:58 PM PST by Joiseydude
President Obama says he wants to be president of all the people. But some groups are urging him to make an exception for the Boy Scouts of America.
Critics of the Scouts who are outraged that the group is allowed to exclude gays and atheists while receiving federal funding are urging Obama to reject the group's honorary presidency, a designation bestowed on every U.S. president since William Howard Taft in 1910.

They shouldn’t offer it to him. He doesn’t deserve the honorary presidency, let alone the real presidency.
Go ahead refuse it Obama. A giant window into the bottomless pit where your soul should be.
I would prefer that they defer the honor to later. Or to someone else.
The Boy Scouts would get my support if they refused the honor.
In honor of his economic policies, they should confer the title “ Big Chief-Hole-in-the-Pocket” to him
This is probably fine with the scouts.
The Obamaloon has not the normals, the fortitude, or the intelligence to ever attain a reasonable scout rank.
But, he does have a Harvard Law degree. (Go figure out how.)
The pole smokers should form their own boy scout troops.
They should be called . . . ?
*Just have to take care of a little paper work first. Sign a few documents to release the honorary and BTW, bring along your BC.
Nuts. Nuts to the Boys Scouts for offering it to Obama. Nuts to the Obama cult for thinking the Obama should not take it. Nuts! Just plain nuts no matter which way you look.
Obama’s homosexual “sensitivity” will keep him from supporting the Boy Scouts...
"The Progressive Rump Rangers of Amerika."
” has not the normals”??????
They made slick willy honorary president of the BSA during his term. I sent my eagle award, plaque, merit badge sash and the flag I carried as a crew leader at Philmont in 1974 back to the national office. I got a nice letter from the CEO of SW Bell (CEO of the BSA)returning my stuff. I sent it back and said no thanks.......The BSA is not what it used to be.F’em....red
Have you seen the kind of stuff Harvard Law offers up nowadays?
That’s exactly how.
...the group is allowed to exclude gays and atheists while receiving federal funding......not to mention the gay atheists, who are all *dressed* up with no place to go.
My Eagle Scout Board of Review was supposed to be held on 9/11/01, but was postponed.
Prior to that, I was a Life Scout for 4 1/2 years before attaining the rank of Eagle. My dad was (and still is) the one who would request congratulatory letters from presidents, and he likes to joke that I waited to become Eagle after Clinton was out of office.
Anyway, as I mentioned, my dad is the one who requests the letters, and it’s such a stark contrast among the presidents.
The Bushes ALWAYS send a letter. So did Ford, and his was always the best (he was an Eagle).
Clinton sent letters while he was in office, but after Jan 20, 2001, they stopped coming. My dad is polite and always asks “do you want me to request one from Bill Clinton? He hasnt responded in years, but I’ll request if you like.” That answer is usually a “no.”
And Carter? Never even a reply. I expect the same from Obama. Actually, I expect nobody will even request one from Obie.
Sounds like they’re ready to “out” him should he not do as they direct.
