Priorities! Obama inserts himself in Boy Scouts business; Journalists mock questioning it

Bingo! But when has that ever stopped The One? Last night, in a pre-Super Bowl interview with CBS’ Scott Pelley, President Obama said that the  Boy Scouts of America should open its membership to gays and lesbians.

More from AP:

President Barack Obama says the Boy Scouts of America should open its membership to gays and lesbians when its national executive board discusses the issue this week.

Obama praised the scouts as “a great institution” that promotes young people, giving them lifelong leadership training and opportunities. During a pre-Super Bowl interview on CBS, he said “no one should be barred from that.”

The Boy Scouts announced last week it was considering replacing its longstanding ban on gays with a policy to let troop sponsors make their own decision on the issue.

And,to the video tape, if you can stomach it:

Regardless of one’s stance on the Boy Scouts and gay scoutmasters, how is this something in which the President of the United States should insert himself? But, hey, it’s not surprising coming from a man who inserts himself into everything, always. Including the histories of other presidents and historical figures and events, like Rosa Parks, Neil Armstrong, and Pearl Harbor.

All. About. Him. You must all wait with bated breath for his alleged thoughts on things like the Boy Scouts, head pats for Sandra Fluke, whether or not police “acted stupidly” and the recent NFL refs fiasco.

  • Benghazi? Jobs? Whatever! He’s far too busy with his laser-like focus on statism.

Media response? Sneer. Sneer like the wind.

What about this, lapdogs? If you are so intent on having President Obama insert himself into everything, why don’t you question him about this?

Of course, you won’t. It’s far easier to sneer at others instead, and to worship at the altar of multiculturalism. Journalism!

As for President Obama, who faux-praised the organization in his statist pandering attempt, here is a bit of advice for him:
