Posted on 08/06/2010 11:25:18 AM PDT by Tribune7
The National Boy Scout Jamboree ended, Wednesday, and President Obama broke a quasi-tradition by declining to address the Scouts.
The quadrennial event has been held at Fort A.P. Hill near Washington D.C. since 1981. This year's event celebrated the 100th Anniversary of the organization.
In lieu of an appearance at the 10-day-long Jamboree, Obama appeared on the View, attended several Democrat fundraisers and visited Detroit.
He did send a short videotaped message which reportedly was shown in a mix of several other presentations. When the president appeared he was roundly booed by the 35,000 Scouts, one man who was there said.

"Hey Mom, what's for dinner?"
I love the kid who shouts out, “I hope you are watching this.”
My son was there.
Yes, Obama got booed.
I don’t think Obama is going to get the Scout vote?
I know that. I’ll ask again. Should a Boy Scout, who should be an exemplar of that internal character as codified by the Boy Scout Handbook and shown through his actions, show reverence to a leader who is the antithesis of the Boy Scout Handbook?
Should a Boy Scout show reverence to a Renegade (that’s the Secret Service name for that impostor POSOTUS) who has no respect for the Boy Scout organization or the Godly ideals that each Scout strives to imbue into their soul and taught by the Boy Scout leadership? Is this wannabe Prez worthy of any respect based on who he is, who his friends and allies are, his ideals, and his goal of destroying this country? Should Boy Scouts respect an individual who is in the process of destroying this country as fast as he can with the help of his Leftist cronies and thugs?
Should a Boy Scout respect those who promote evil?
I attended the 50th in 1960 (Colorado Springs)...will never forget Ike riding and waving from a convertible as it drove thru the giant tent city.
What I find interesting is that no one is coming to loon’s defense on You Tube.
Had I been present, I would have been one of the Scout leaders who turned my back on the President.
Is it true he isn’t signing the certificates that traditionally go out to Eagle Scouts?
“I have a confession. I have been around a long time. Never in all my years have I ever been a hater of anyone or anything.”
It’s my understanding that there are some who don’t hate the present POtuS and are staunch conservatives ... I can’t reconcile this ... my mind rejects the concept or forces me into believing in some sort of zen political state of mind far beyond my comprehension ... personally, I would not “make water” for him were he to burst into flame in front of my joy filled eyes.
Ah well, the video is out there, (for now) Glad you have it saved. Just in case
I don't know. I can't believe that even he would be that dumb.
As defined by BSA:
A Scout is reverent toward God. He is faithful in his religious duties. He respects the beliefs of others.
Is the Obama worthy of my respect? No. He is all the things that you say he is.
Would I BOO him while in my Scouter uniform? No, due to my respect for Scouting.
If I am OK to BOO him, why not throw a tomato, why not throw a rock, why not run up on stage and assault him?
A Scout is Obedient.
A Scout follows the rules of his family, school, and troop. He obeys the laws of his community and country. If he thinks these rules and laws are unfair, he tries to have them changed in an orderly manner rather than disobeying them.
If the ideals of Scouting can not be reconciled with your view of respecting the Office of the President, perhaps you should not support the BSA.
Wow... are those still available? what a great gift for the soon to be Eagle!!
Any boy Scout who boos a President of the US, no matter who he/she is, would be, and should be, in trouble.
“A scout is courteous” is one of the points of the Scout Law. I can’t imagine that may scouts would like Obama, I also can’t imagine that booing the President would be tolerated.
“The video shows them booing respectfully.”
Not only did the Democrats boo the Boy Scouts, they flat out AMBUSHED THEM. They only invited them to the convention so they could shame them as they carried the colors down the aisle.
There’s a special place in the afterlife for such scum.
What an outstanding show of good judgment and good character by the scouts.
His speech was not featured as part of the main body of the evenings festivities.
BTW welcome to FRee Republic.
...and thank you for your input.
I just got the email today from Ruger announcing this 100 year anniversary model. A great little gun. I got five skunks from about fifty yards recently.
you got freep mail
Congratulations. My son turns 16 next spring and is a Life Scout. Next year he should earn his Eagle. I agree with you -- seems like just last week he was a Tiger Cub.
Thank you for your eye witness account.
I think the contrast between the response to the “0” remarks and what followed says it all.

Is a Scout taught to discern what evil is and reject it? Or his he supposed to be blindly obedient to those who are the law givers no matter how evil they may be or the rules/laws/agenda they promote? As far as I am concerned these Boy Scouts did the right thing. That Impostor-In-Chief is nothing but criminal bent on destroying this company and you stand by and say that the Boy Scouts should respect that. That’s your opinion but I will respectfully disagree. That turd deserves tomatoes, rocks, and jail time. Put that idiot in a stocks and let the vegetable throwing begin.
Read the following and tell me what you think.
This Leviathan, which is the government, has the ontological duty of protecting our interests, and guaranteeing our welfare. The consideration we paid individually and collectively is the surrender of our individual powers to self-protection, to this Leviathan. To that effect, we deserve the guarantee of our rights to life, property and pursuit of happiness, because we have paid for it. So no government has the right to renege on this contract, and expect to feed on a meal of our silence. This why as Thomas Jefferson once wrote: Disobedience to tyranny is obedience to God. Any society that wallows in timid silence, while the maid of liberty to be lulled to sleep by corrupt power, risks ratifying the embezzlement of its commonweal and posterity.
Take a few moments and ponder on these historical words of Patrick Henry: “They tell us, Sir, that we are weak - unable to cope with such a formidable ADVERSARY. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be next week, or next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed .Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying spinelessly on our backs, and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? . . .Sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just GOD who presides over the destinies of nations . . . The battle, Sir, its not to the strong alone. It is to the vigilant, the active, the brave . . . There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! . . .Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace! - But there is no peace. The war is actually begun! . . . Why stand we here Idle? What is it that Gentleman wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, ALMIGHTY GOD! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH!”
Bishop R.A. Brown said, “Freedom can only be won . . . the warfare is continuous and each generation comes to the front to fight for it as though the battle had just been joined.”
Thomas Jefferson declared, “If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, it expects something it cannot be . . . This country with its Constitution belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they grow weary of the existing form of government they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or their revolutionary right to dismember or overthrow it . . . The tree of liberty must be from time to time watered with the blood of patriots and tyrants . .
The men who fought the Revolutionary War for our freedom and independence were considered by the King of England to be violent revolutionaries. These revolutionaries took up arms solely on the authority of their own consciences. There was not one of them that would not have been hung or shot if they had been captured by the British Army. They pledged their life, fortunes and sacred honor for the freedom that they cherished. Many of them lost their families, homes, wealth and their lives in the fight for freedom that declared their independence from the tyranny of British Crown.
Trotsky proclaimed: “Governments need armies to protect them against their enslaved and oppressed subjects.”
President Teddy Roosevelt said, “Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the president or any public official, save exactly to the degree he himself stands by the country.”
You're a brave man, Jim! His vile statement just didn't set well with me :).
I suppose there are those who do feel this way but I'm not one of them, (as all conservatives I personally know) feel exactly the same way you do. Sometimes I truly have to bite my tongue to keep myself out of an argument with liberals!
Then there are those times when this ol'gal just can't help herself and the words just spew :)

Welcome to FR & thanks.
They commented about you as well as your tag line.
BTW. Thanks for the link.
I bought a new Rugar 10/22 last year at Dick’s
“Not only did the Democrats boo the Boy Scouts, they flat out AMBUSHED THEM. They only invited them to the convention so they could shame them as they carried the colors down the aisle.”
I always got the idea that the likes of liberal Democrats and Obama hate boyscouts, they feel it is outmoded, and dangerous. In fact, I got the idea Obama wanted to establish a Hitler Youth type organization. I am positive he would attend that jamboree.
You have changed my mind. I agree with you. The Scouts should have stormed the stage, torn down the big screen TV and stomped it into the ground. All the while screaming down with Obama. Maybe an effigy or two would have been appropriate.
That would have been good for the Boy Scouts and good for the country. I'm with ya' now.
That would show America actually has a backbone!
If you had lived during the American colonial era in one of the colonies you more than likely would have looked down on all of those American colonists who rejected King George’s tyrannical ways with their very harsh treatment of the King’s officials, their seditious writings, and the kind of tea parties they threw. All you would have been doing is tell everyone to treat King George and company with respect. Well, the colonialists were not interested in respecting tyrants - executive, bureaucrat, judge or otherwise.
“Maybe they are just being prepared to take these socialists on?”
They are just practicing for the real thing.
Great find, mware.
Good to see you.
We need an Obama Peep. That would be one Obama we wouldn’t hear a “peep” out of!
The video shows them booing respectfully.- agere_contraLOL!
I did a little searching, and from what I was able to find, 0bama did delay most of the Eagle Scout certificates, but the info I found seemed to say that he eventually got around to it.
Most likely he did it against his will, so as not to cause an uproar from us hateful racist, commoners.
I do not disagree with your sentiment. I disagree with your vehicle. A bunch of 11-17 year old teens is not the vehicle.
I do not respect Obama. I do not like him as President. I have and will continue to work to get him out of office
(Congress critters too).
Will I BOO him at a TEA Party rally? Yup.
Will I BOO him at a Scouting assembly? Nope.
I think it is time for us to respectfully part ways.
All three of us are listed in the comments section. The jackwagon even posted my tagline.
Nice to get some free publicity from a LOONatic.
You probably got some new FR Members from it, JR.
And there’ll likely be more folks trying out the e-cigarette, and not paying Obama’s SCHIP tax when they quit smoking.
It’s just..(sniffle).. too bad that ..(snort).. NOBODY’S coming to his/her defense.
And quite ..(whimper).. pathetic that he/she can’t be defended on YouTube of all places.
*yes, FRiends. I am in hysterics here. LMAO!!!!*
If they didn’t boo they should have...:)
What a complete moron (obama)
