Did 35,000 Scouts Boo Obama?
BillLawrenceOnline.Com ^ | 8-6-10

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.

“They sure as hell were booing him.”

“Be prepared” ... looks like they are! What this Marxist/Black Liberation Theologist dirtbag is doing to us, they BETTER be prepared.

I was at the Jamboree last weekend. The estimates of the crowd size at the large event Saturday night were about 70,000 (although there were many leaders and family members there, so the phrase 35,000 scouts may be about right).

There were audible boos from many places in the crowd when the President's videotape message was introduced, although there was also some polite applause. It was far short of the whole crowd booing, but the reception was definitely very chilly.

Personally, I could not bring myself to breach the non-political nature of Boy Scouts, so I chose to remain silent, neither applauding nor booing. It was quite a sad moment for me that I did not feel I could the President at a Boy Scout meeting, so standing silent was hard enough.

Visiting others in the Boy Scout community during the day leading up to the evening event, nearly everyone present was disgusted that the President would chose to attend a fundraiser in New York over celebrating the 100th anniversery of the Boy Scouts. They played the President's message during the pre-show, when people were still gathering in the big arena, and not during the main 3 hour show. The main show (which was a very professional 'Disney'-like production and was simulcast over the web) included video messages from Ted Nugent and others, so it was a bit of a return slight that the President's message was played during the pre-show and not the main program.

When slick was Pres., our Troop including Son were making Eagle and its traditional for the President to write a letter to each Scout upon acheiving the rank of Eagle Scout.

Our Troop and many others from what can tell, declined to submit Scout’s names as no one wanted slick’s sliming this big deal in their lives. Right after W got in everyone of the Eagles got a letter instead from President Bush.

My son made Eagle last year and next month, on the 16th, he turns 18. He will have earned his Silver Palm by then.

It has been a rewarding, though surprisingly fast journey with him along the Eagle Trail. It has gone entirely too fast, but watching a 7-year old boy enter the Tiger Cubs and an 18-year old man leave the Scouts is an amazing experience.

Should a Boy Scout be

Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful,
Friendly, Courteous, Kind,
Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty,
Brave, Clean, and Reverent

toward a man-child who is an illegal alien, a homosexual, an impostor-in-chief, a Muslim, an incompetent idiot, and a rabid Marxist/Leftist who hates America with every fiber of his being, is determined to destroy it, and is the antithesis of everything the Boy Scouts stand for?

Should this empty suit be saluted by any one civilian or military?

The libs haven’t figured out how to crack down on airsoft yet...

And many young men are getting “prepared” with training and practice in weapons, tactics, communications, etc,

by “playing” airsoft and paintball.

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. I regret to say, that is no longer true. The past few years have caused me to think things I never thought possible. Guess I'm going to have to work on that!

My brother and his son were there, and he says that almost the entire crowd booed Obama.

Although Obama certainly deserved it, I’m a little surprised that the scouts would do so.

Not that Obama cares.

I was Scoutmaster during Slick’s term (among other’s as well) and we held several Eagle Courts of Honor during his “reign”. The Governor, LT Gov. and other officals sent very nice parchment quality letters of appreciation for their achievements in Scouting complete with seals and offical headings.

At each Court of Honor I noticed that the wording was different also, not “form” letters although of course there were similarities as you would expect but they were refreshingly personal.

Ol’ Slick sent postcards, yep, I kept one to remind me of the crassness of people like him. One group of Eagles threw their Clinton cards away after being presented them. It was great.

I loved Scouting (did it for many years), if your Troop is run traditionally, you can’t go wrong.

I seriously doubt this. I'm sure the Scouts were, as their oath says, "Respectful".

Each point of the Scout law is fully defined in the Scout Handbook or you can find it at several websites. Each of the points refelcts the internal character of a Scout, not something owed to an individual.

Each Scout must make the call as to how each point of the Law applies to his situation.

I would not Boo the President, whatever he is, while representing Scouting. Just my call.

Thanks for that info. I don't automatically take the word of an anonymous source, so I watched the link to the You Tube video. It was interesting that the comment on the video made it CLEAR that those who were booing the President were doing so ONLY because he chose not to attend the Jamboree.

The bottom line is that Øbama and the Boy Scouts have values and morals which are diametrically opposed.

If he, his party (Democrats) and his political circles (Liberals, Socialists) had their way, there would be only two choices for the BSA.

1) Allow openly activist gays to lead America’s boys, sharing their pup tents and handing out merit badges for their perverse debauchery.

2) Cast the entire organization to the ash heap of history for standing up to purity and actually MEANING the words they swear an oath to uphold.
