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.
“DISSENT IS PATRIOTIC”
Obama News Network would be (ONN).
That;s why I have always thought that it was CommieCrate News Network (CNN)
Riiight. He didn't get the invitation in time, and had already made plans to be someone where else.
Whatta load of horse hockey!
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?
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.
I thought she was dead! Well, I guess being on CNN is a sort of death.
“Booing would seem to go against some of the 12 tenets of Boy Scout Law.”
Ms Moos has been reading her Saul Alinsky again.
CNN’s Jeanne Moos, just another “professional certified journalist” substituting snarky adolescent bitchiness for clear thinking, and group political correctness for the courage to speak truth to power.
Between now and then there may be some difficult tasks for all.
That’s really her name.
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.
Unlike the courtesy and kindness Obama showed the Boy Scouts on their 100th birthday.
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
Or maybe they should call themselves CON - Commie Obama News.
And the scouts were already scheduled to “boo” obama that day.
Both should be commended for sticking faithfully to their schedules that day.
One of my favorite lines from "Friends".
The scouts had it right. I’m glad they didn’t bow down and worship the worst president ever.
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.
I wonder,does she have big,oh never mind
Jeanne Moos is proof that being blonde and blue eyed an beautiful is not necessary for being a TV info babe.
On CNN, blonde and blue eyed is all that is required.
The guy who uses our Constitution for a door matt wants respect from the Boy Scouts.
Let him earn it.
obama was just given the same “respect” that he accords the BSA.
obama has earned the boos.
More to come.
On my honor
I will do my best
To do my duty
To God and my country
And to obey the Scout Law;
To keep myself
And morally straight.
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.
And Moos isn’t a journalist.
