President's Message Booed by Scouts

At the Boy Scouts Jamboree, many Souts appear to be breaking their own "law" in booing President Obama.

After all, a Scout is supposed to be: Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, COURTEOUS, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent.

And yet, is it really discourteous to boo a recorded message? If the president had gone to the jamboree in person, I bet he would have received a very friendly and enthusiastic greeting.

Nevermind, that as a politician, President Obama himself has hardly lived to many of the traits scouts endeavor to embody. After all, he hasn't been very "Thifty" when it comes to the national credit card...

or "Friendly, Courteous" or "Kind" to the opposition party...

or "Obedient" to the will of the people when it comes to healthcare and spending...

or "Brave" when it comes to not overreacting to snippets on conservatives Web sites...

or "Loyal" to the Independents who voted for him because as a candidate he portrayed himself to be a centrist...

or "Reverent" when it came to not throwing his own reverend under the bus when he became a political embarrassment...

or "Helpful" to moderate Democrats, who are going to lose their seats this November because of being forced to support his Big Government agenda...

or even "Clean," especially when you see him cavorting at fundraisers for Chicago pols who have been tied to mobsters and failed banks.

So the president isn't much of a Boy Scout.

What else is new?

Let's see, the Obamination blew off 45,000 Boy Scouts in nearby Virginia so he could flap his yap with the girls from The View.

He's the first President ever to miss the Boy Scouts National Jamboree.

Under the circumstances, booing seems like the least they could do.

Correction: Obama isn't the first president ever to miss the Jamboree. Other presidents have skipped the Jamboree over the years.

But Obama would be the first sitting president never to have attended the Jamboree live if he sits out the next one and doesn't get reelected in 2012.

I think that's right.

I stand corrected.
I would never want to exaggerate the Obaminator's failings, as the truth is generally scary enough.
