I'm not quite sure why anything this administration does can still surprise or disgust me, but they've managed to do it again!

Obama Will Skip Boy Scout 100 Year Anniversary Jamboree – Will Appear on “The View” That Day Instead

The last three presidents (that includes Bill Clinton, for those of you keeping score at home!) have appeared in person at the Boy Scouts of America Jamboree. The Boy Scouts are a venerable part of this nation's history. They have helped to build the character of Presidents such as John F. Kennedy. Presidents have been former Scout leaders and members, and the contributions of this organization to the United States are many and the Scouts can be proud.

So where will Barack Obama be when the 100th Anniversary of the Boy Scouts takes place? In a TV studio on a talk show for women. Really.

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.”

Bob Dries, chairman of national news and media at the Boy Scouts of America Jamboree – a gathering that happens every four years and attracts thousands of scouts from around the world – told CNSNews.com that the organization was told on Monday that the president had scheduling conflicts and would not be speaking in-person at the week-long event.


Scheduling conflicts. With a show he is taping to be shown the next day. Funny! He found time to tape some comments to the BSA. Why couldn't he have rescheduled his taping of the gab fest on The View, and make the personal appearance? Guess we know where his priorities lie!

It reminds me just a little of when Obama blew off his attendance at the Salute to Heroes Inaugural Ball, where he blew off 48 Medal of Honor recipients so that he could hang out with Hollywood stars. Even Bill Clinton who is said to have "loathed the military" find time to put in an appearance at the Salute to Heroes Ball at his inauguration. Clinton had just as many balls to attend as Obama. How sad a commentary is it when you fall behind Bill Clinton in respecting the military? Or the Boy Scouts?

  1. On the other hand, this may be a good thing! I hope latter in life these kids will realize the reality of what this means...

  2. OF COURSE NOT!

    If he’d been in the Scouts instead of sitting on Frank Marshall Davis’ leg in some seedy bar he might have turned out to be normal… rather than the embittered head case we’re stuck with now.

  4. The Scouts have lasted 100 years, this president's reign will be over in 4. Both are good things.

  5. Obama attend a ceremony of a organization that empathize the concept of "honor". Since this man has none, it comes as no surprise he would skip such events to talk to a bunch of bitter lesbians. What is with him and radical women? Mommy issues? Well, I just know if Obama was a Klingon, he wouldn't be around because he has the honor of the Duras family.

  6. All leftists despise virtue. As such, they also despise institutions that inspire virtue. The smelly, little Marxist Brakabama is no exception.

  7. Yeah. In looking at the Scout's oath, Barry wouldn't make it past the third word...

  8. President Obama entertained a contingent of Scouts in the Oval Office on July 12.

    You didn't cover that. Do you hate Scouting much?

    Please stop using Scouting as a pike to stab the President, who is also the Honorary President of BSA. Even if those ugly views are really yours, it's to your advantage to pretend to be polite.

  10. Okay, woop dee doo. He entertained one damn troop. That is what we in the real world call a "token gesture". If he can find time to entertain a troop, why can't he delay his taping of the gab fest that is the view and honor the whole organization?

  11. Ed writes,

    "Please stop using Scouting as a pike to stab the President, who is also the Honorary President of BSA. Even if those ugly views are really yours, it's to your advantage to pretend to be polite."

    ..yeah, Ed, I guess our boy could squeeze the scouts in between tee times and trips to Maine and seeing his wife off to Spain for her post-vacacation-pre-Martha's Vineyard vacation vacation and all of that Day One crapola. In the mean time, he's yammering away like an idiot about being from the ranks of poverty and having -- only a scant few years ago -- to sweat low retirement account and high credit card balances. Now, of course, even if this festering bag of dog turds only lasts four years, he's guaranteed a comfy parole on the public doll, where he can write more self-bum-osculating books about -- what? -- "The Audacity of [the] Dope" and do a few daily backstroke laps through his $7.7 million Scrooge McDuck Money Bin.

    No, Ed, old son, we ain't gonna hold back the pikes until that screaming, box-of-rocks, narcissistic nitwit is hoist on his own petard.

    I'd cordially recommend a cool glass of iced tea and a nice lie-down in the backyard hammock, my man.

    Loves and kisses,

  12. "If he’d been in the Scouts instead of sitting on Frank Marshall Davis’ leg in some seedy bar he might have turned out to be normal…"

    Really? "Dreams" never indicated he sat "on Frank Marshall Davis’ leg in some seedy bar." I thought we were dealing with "truth"!

  13. "You didn't cover that." Gosh, Ed. Maybe entertaining a few scouts in the Oval Office wasn't news. I didn't see anything about it. Maybe your beef is with the MSM.
    Of course, snubbing the entire organization of Boy Scouts on their 100 year anniversary might just have been just a tiny bit bigger story.
    "Do you hate Scouting much?" Not as much as you hate logic and reasoning! There are a lot of stories I don't cover on any given day. For you to assume I "hate" something because I didn't see it or care enough about a story to comment on it, is weapons grade stupidity.
    (Or were you just attempting sarcasm and failing? )

    You note that the President "is also the Honorary President of BSA". Even more reason to characterize this snub as an insult to Scouts. They honor him, he snubs them. In favor of a daytime talk show. The View.

    And before you bloviate again, no, I don't hate Whoopi Goldberg, either!
