President Barack Obama, the honorary chairman of the Boy Scouts of America, will not speak in-person before the group on Wednesday at Fort A.P. Hill in Virginia, as part of the organization's 100th anniversary celebration. However, the president is sending a videotaped message to the scouts for Wednesday, the same day he will be in Manhattan to tape an appearance for ABC TV’s talk show “The View.”

This President, in my humble opinion, is disturbed.

Lately his public ramblings have been very similar to

0 can prove with geometric logic that we are in a recovery!

Just my opinion, but Im kinda glad that yahoo isnt going and corrupting our Boy Scouts. Honestly that man couldnt get himself out of the woods if he tried. lol. Not a role model at all.

No surprise. He disses an organization that believes in and supports the greatness of the USA and runs to a shallow, sillyass TV show that showcases the decline and fall of the USA.

If I were in the BSA, I would not WANT him to address the organization.

Would be like Clay Aiken giving a pep talk to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

One more thing. THE BSA has a God and Country badge. Obama wants to destroy both!

The Scouts, and all that they stand for, are enemies to Communists, and sick, destructive, leftist moral equivalence in general.

I am a former Boy Scout, First Class who celebrated the Scouts’ 50th Anniversary in 1960 at the age of 13. I am happy that Obama chose not to participate in our anniversary. His values and those of the Scouts are diametrically opposed. Be Prepared.

Why worry about whether Hitler attends or not?

Obama disgraces every truly American event that he shows up at.

Good reading here from Chuck Norris:

White House vs. Boy Scouts, Part 1
Posted: June 21, 2010

(Editor’s note: This is Part 1 of a three-part series on the White House and the Boy Scouts. In Parts 2 and 3, Norris will not only give further proof concerning how the Obama administration is creating an arm’s-length relationship with the BSA, but show how President Obama’s advocacy of the BSA compares to the past 100 years of U.S. presidents.)

LOL.. Good one!!

My youngest is at Jambo. We both decided last week that BO would be a no show.

My son isn’t at all upset that this “president” won’t be there.

They'd all be nodding off anyway, like that poor lad in the background of videos when O spoke at some high school graduation ceremony.

Good!

The BSA doesn’t need that worthless excuse of an American anywhere near the Jamboree.

It’d be like oil and water. 0 would be the proverbial turd in the punch bowl there and he would come across as insincere anyway.

He doesn’t believe in the Values and Mission of Scouting.

Our son is real close to earning his Eagle Scout Award. Wants to do so this year, 100th Anniv. and all. Centennial Eagle.

I’m not so sure I want him to finish while 0 is the “Honorary President of the BSA” and his certificate is “signed” by the _resident.

Of course, it’s our son’s call.

He doesn’t live or personify the Boy Scout oath and hence does not belong among them let alone be an honorary leader.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck should dump the show and go address the Boy Scouts. She has more patriotism in one strand of her hair that Zero has in his whole body.

And the boys being boys wouldn’t mind seeing her at all!!

As far back as July 6th, it was already a given that Obama wouldn’t be at the 100 year anniversary. See Chuck Norris’ article http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2547560/posts

The comments after the article are very interesting and enlightening. The general concenses is that he would not be welcome at the gala; one said that no Eagle Scout awards have been signed by him since taking office; another said there have been “mechanical” signatures; one said (#26) that a request was made to George W. Bush, who sent back a very warm letter.

This is good news for the boys at the Jamboree

... exactly so!! Zero is so far removed from the Scout Oath/Laws that it would be a huge disconnect for the SissyInChief to show at a campground anyway... back to the Wagyu beef in the White House...

Our only regret is the Eagle Awards in this 100th year will have to be signed by Obozo, including in our household....

ymmv

... same issue here, but we think the 100th year special cert will hopefully make up for the bogus/unqualified/usurper signature on the document. I’ve heard Zer0 is so busy with WH parties that the signed certs are running 7 months behind.
Wish my Life could have been at the 100th year Jambo though...

Obama is not any of:

A Scout is:
Trustworthy
Loyal
Helpful
Friendly
Courteous
Kind
Obedient
Cheerful
Thrifty
Brave
Clean
Reverent

Have they changed the Scout Law since fifty years ago?

It would be better if Her Royal Majesty Queen of England, Britain, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales came a spoke. Especially since Scouting started in in England with Lord Baden Powell.

It would even be appropriate for BP’s or William Boyce’s (founder of Scouting in the USA) descendants to attend/speak.

That would bring it home IMO.
