CNN's Moos: Booing Scouts Weren't 'Courteous and Kind' to President Obama
news busters ^ | 8/10/10 | Matthew Balan

Posted on 08/10/2010 10:20:20 PM PDT by Nachum

On Tuesday's American Morning, CNN's Jeanne Moos picked up on the viral video of Boy Scouts booing President Obama's taped message to the recent National Jamboree, but got in a light jab at the youth for their behavior: "Booing would seem to go against some of the 12 tenets of Boy Scout Law. A Boy Scout is 'trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind'- wait a minute, 'courteous and kind'?"

The correspondent, known for her light reports for the network, concluded the 6 am Eastern hour with "unique take" on the video, as anchor John Roberts put it. Moos noted that "45,000 Scouts were celebrating the 100th anniversary of Scouting" in the United States at the Jamboree, which was held at the U.S. Army's Fort A.P. Hill in Virginia, and that "two months earlier, the White House informed the Scouts that the President had prior commitments."

Moos continued that the "Scouts...booed the President's message, and this 23-second video made its way on to conservative websites, which slammed the President for forsaking the Boy Scouts to appear on 'The View.'" She later gave the Obama administration's explanation for the apparent snub: "The White House says 'The View' had nothing to do with it- that the President was already scheduled to be on the road that day."

The kindest act, and certainly the most loyal act, a boyscout can perform at this historical moment is to oppose our president.

The Boy Scouts didn't boo Obama, they booed the video of Obama. If TOTUS had at least shown up, it probably would have been OK.

Showing undue respect to people who DON"T deserve it is disrespectul to the rest.

And didn't we just hear Mrs. obama isn't getting the reverence she deserves?

If I would compare obama to a king ,it would be Charles I of England.

The Boy Scouts would have been more courteous and kind, if only the president were trustworthy, loyal, helpful . . . thrifty, brave, clean, reverent.

Edict from President B.O.

Due to your insulance Boy Scouts, You will be defunded and not allowed to be in the prescence of your ultimate scoutmaster, Me.

You will also have to undergo Drug Tests for your opposition and purchase health insurance for a merit badge.

You can’t be unkind or discourteous to a video recording. That is like being afraid to hang up on those stupid campaign recordings because you don’t want to hurt someone’s feelings. It’s a freaking recording. There is no person there.

A real person deserves civil treatment (with a few exceptions). But I’ll be damned if I have to treat their flipping mechanical or digital proxy with respect.

It was my Scoutmaster that I credit for the reason that I never tried Marijuana. He was saying “just say no” waaaay before Nancy Reagan.

I guess Obama never had a Scoutmaster.

Why doesn't CNN ask Obama if he should be booed?

What is Obama going to say...no?

Boo boo failures
STEVEN Gerrard has given England fans the green light to boo the team at Wembley tonight.

The skipper, 30, insisted supporters should vent their fury on the World Cup flops.

He said yesterday: "I probably would boo. We deserve it.

"We have to take it on the chin because we let the supporters down in the summer.

...Manager Fabio Capello has also admitted he and his team of under-performing stars including Wayne Rooney, John Terry and Frank Lampard deserve to be jeered in tonight's friendly with Hungary.

...A well-below capacity crowd of about 60,000 is expected tonight, with some supporters said to be planning to walk out after 40 minutes in disgust at England's World Cup shocker.

Riiight. He didn't get the invitation in time, and had already made plans to be someone where else.

Whatever.

Give them points for trustworthy, loyal, helpful, brave, and thrifty. And they were still more courteous and kind than Dems are to the scouts (faint praise, I realize. How about MUCH MORE courteous and kind than Dems are to scouts.)

“Courteous and kind,” eh? Interesting. If you count up the total number of times the Obama-drooling, liberal stenography “press corps” exhibited kindness and courteousness to W during the entire 8 years of his presidency, and attempt to calculate the reciprocal of that number, you end up with infinity.

I remember, at least I think I do, that Boy Scouts were spit upon and booed at some obama event. I have searched and searched for that, but no can find. Can someone prove my sanity, or should I begin buying wheel chairs and electric scooters?

Obama's lamebrain advisors told him, "Ahh, just a bunch of non-voting kids in shorts...forget them, there's no point". But they forgot that there are probably 30 million EX-Boy Scouts out there. To ignore the 100th anniversary of this famous group is a real shame and a missed opportunity. As a Scout, I went to Valley Forge Jamboree in 1964. LBJ flew in by helicopter and spoke to 75,000 of us. I'll never forget the event, although I completely forget what he said.....LBJ was like that.

I'm afraid the horse is out of the barn on this one, however, there is a big vote coming up.

Boy Scouts UNITE!!!

Obama dissed the Boy Scouts to try and prop up his weak, pathetic ratings, so I don’t blame them. The irony is that he probably could have gotten a boost in his ratings by meeting with the Boy Scouts. Of course, the limp-wristed crowd probably wouldn’t like it.

It may be time for the Scouts to set aside "courteous and kind" until the day our civilization and culture are restored.

Between now and then there may be some difficult tasks for all.

You just can’t make this stuff up.

By the way, I had a friend go to the jamboree and he didn’t hear any booing. That said, he probably didn’t waste any time listening to a video of Obama.

Many people get led away by some new politician with some new extreme idea. Never believe in one man's idea till it has been well considered from all points of view. Extreme ideas are seldom much good; if you look them up in history you will see almost always that they have been tried before somewhere and have failed.

Your forefathers worked hard, fought hard, and died hard, to make your country for you. Don't let them look down from heaven and see you loafing about with your hands in your pockets, doing nothing to keep it up.

Play up! Each man in his place, and play the game!

- Lieutenant General Robert Baden-Powell, 1st Baron Baden-Powell in Scouting for Boys

“The White House says ‘The View’ had nothing to do with it- that the President was already scheduled to be on the road that day.”

And the scouts were already scheduled to “boo” obama that day.

Both should be commended for sticking faithfully to their schedules that day.

Technically, I suppose, she’s right.

The amazing thing about the booing, though, is its spontaneity and widespread nature, the gut reaction to being dissed by the Hoper-in-Chief and without being organized by any conspiracy. And, you don’t hear any applause, either, or any apparent attempt to silence the protest. This tiny incident speaks volumes. What’s more, it is . . .

The very definition of the Tea Party sentiment. If people, even young people, do not speak up, their opinions will be lost. The final poll results on all this comes early November. We’ll see.

All the more power to the real citizens of America, boo the false leader, speak the truth, spread the word to those that are negatively affected by this impostor pretending to be the most powerful nation on Earths leader.

He is a rotten actor that cannot read his script unless its in front of him, he mocks every facet of a Christian lifestyle that America has become.

Our future leaders often have roots by becoming Boy Scouts, I am so glad that they chose to express their feelings from the heart and mind.

The first thing an oppressive dictator style country does is to steal the youth away and kill the parents.
