Skip to comments.CNN's Moos: Booing Scouts Weren't 'Courteous and Kind' to President Obama
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."

She bit my sister.
Somehow, I think her real name is Elsie.
Even the Boy Scouts know what’s going on in America.
The kindest act, and certainly the most loyal act, a boyscout can perform at this historical moment is to oppose our president.
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.

Throw 'em all out.
LOL...why doesn’t CNN just give it up and change it’s name to the Obama News Network....Drop any pretense of objectivity..
Being courteous and kind sometimes means opposing the wicked...otherwise, it’s complicity.
it's a moo point... a cow's opinion... it doesn't matter...
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.
Moos has to be getting pretty old. She was on when CNN started up. Of course, I didn’t know CNN was still around.
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.
