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.

Todd Starnes brought up something else.

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:

You’re welcome.

  • ZoriahShepard

    There is nothing under the sun that isn’t Obama’s business. He is succeeding in inserting himself into every facet of our lives and there are some of US who are hip to his jive, but it may be too late when the rest of US wake up.

    • Zach Peterson

      We’re awake genius… I hate it when idiots say ‘wake up America’…. really? Like that’s helpful. How about ‘let’s march on dc America!’. That sounds more like a plan and less like a whining rant. Sorry… but I get frustrates at comments…

      • Arthur E Jackson

        I will march peacefully and armed and carrying a sign with a list of demands. Did I say armed! Who is ready

  • TocksNedlog

    Perhaps Chaz Bono should found the Boys-That-Used-To-Be-Girls Scouts.

    • Jorge Salazar

      I certainly like this comment

    • Arthur E Jackson

      Vice versa but good point

      • TocksNedlog

        What do you mean by “vice versa”?

      • Arthur E Jackson

        Vice versa=girl scouts that use to be the Boy Scouts

        • TocksNedlog

          You seem to be more confused than Chaz Bono hisself as to who he be.

  • Zach Peterson points out: has anyone read the boy scout oath? Really? Scouts are a Christian organization…gays have no business. Start your own fagscouts if you want.

    • Sons Thunder


      Why is it all your comments contain the same link? So spammy!

      I’m also curious who deleted the reply to the spammer’s comment.

      If it was the original poster, that’s one thing.

      However, if the moderators deleted a guy saying the GOP is out of touch but left the ‘fagscouts’ comment alone, that would be gross.

      • rinodino

        Yep that was my comment lol ….the guy that actually called people fags comment stays yet my comment gets deleted???? ….. truly amazing twitchy

  • Conrad2010

    Screw Obama and whatever he thinks. Shut the F up and get this country back on track. Do your job and keep your nose out of things you don’t need to be sticking it in.

  • TocksNedlog

    If Obama’s composinary* son that looks like Trayvon, but doesn’t play football cuz he might get an owie, was gay — he would want him to be able to join the Scouts.


    • TugboatPhil

      He’d only want him to join if he could get his Shootin Skeets merit badge.

      • TocksNedlog

        That, and his Mom Jeans Sewing Badge.

  • Conrad2010

    I bet he’d never let his daughters in where there are Lesbians.
    Nope it would never happen.

    • GaryTheBrave

      Sons Thunder, it’s called a dictionary. You should invest in one.

      • Sons Thunder

        Not sure why your responded here but it’s actually called the Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.

        I know that when I need expert clinical diagnostics, I first consult Merriam-Webster. If it’s really complicated, I like to consult the O.E.D.

    This sick, miserable wretch in the White House will push every last lib agenda item on the list, common sense be damned.
    Thanks, Dems. you’ve really done it.

    • Arthur E Jackson

      It’s called sense common. Common sense in reverse

  • notenoughtime

    Convinced that Pres. Obama has nothing more pressing to work on than social issues. Guess it doesn’t take much to jump on the agenda bandwagon of the day but creating jobs does take a leader and obviously we do not have one in our highest office.

  • v1cious

    Well if they wanna be homophobic, that’s they’re business.

    • Garth Haycock

      Why is it that any organization that doesn’t agree with the gay agenda is homophobic? Perhaps the reality is that the homosexual community is heterophobic?

      • Love of Country

        Hear here!

      • TugboatPhil

        Homosexuality used to be a diagnosed mental disorder. It was removed from the list due to politics and not medical science. I still believe it is a mental disorder, not much different than alcoholism and drug addiction in it’s self-destructiveness.

        • Sons Thunder

          What’s your formal training in medicine and psychology?

      • Guest

        I can’t possibly lavish enough scorn on the overused term ‘homophobic’. ‘Phobia’ = ‘irrational fear of’. Distaste for or disapproval of something does not equate to fear of that thing. Pick another term, something more resembling reality.

    • lainer51

      what a putz you are..

    • CatHerder

      I can’t possibly heap enough scorn on the term ‘homophobic’. ‘Phobia’ = ‘irrational fear of’, which does not apply when one feels distaste or contempt for something. Fear does not enter into it, so kindly pick another term!

    • Catchance

      *Their* not *they’re*.

  • t jack

    Obama says the scouts are a great institution, but apparently they’re just not great enough for him to mark their 100th anniversary

    Libs keep sexualizing children earlier and earlier and then stand around pointing fingers as those same kids engage in sexual activity earlier and earlier. Am I the only one who sees an obvious pattern here ie cause and effect?

    The truth is, the less young kids know about sex the less they engage in it. You want proof? Children in liberal households always engage in sex before their conservative counterparts. Those kids know all about it cause they hear and/or “catch” their promiscuous moms and dads engaging in it all the time with who knows what or they see it on late night cable programming all of the time because they have little to no proper supervision all day and all night long. So in the end, the liberal folks take the easy route when it comes to parenting by giving their kids condoms, pills and bad advice instead of leading by example when it comes to properly and responsibly teaching their children about sex.

    Sexualizing children before their time is a crying shame if not a sin altogether. But the DNC know if they can just get these kids involved in sex before they’re ready … that it will eventually lead to enough dysfunction in their lives that they’ll be solid single teen mom progs by the time they’re 15 years old …. and once again … their personal/individual futures are traded-in for the “good” of adding just one more person to the DNC faithful.

    And judging by the way libs scoff at gay ‘liberal’ pedophile priests, you would think they wouldn’t be interested in creating such a draw for gay pedophiles to interact with our children ie celebrating gay scout leaders and troops but history has shown us that nothing liberals do, certainly within the last 50 years, is based upon principle …. just raw emotion and blind ideology. So once again I’m asking you libs ….. what about the children?

    Actually America hasn’t had real freedom of association since the Civil Rights Act of 1964, so let’s stop pretending it exists.


    Anyone who has studied this matter knows that it would be a disaster for open homosexuals to be permitted in Boy Scouts.

    1. How comfortable would you be letting a 16 or 17 year old boy sleep in the same tent as a 12 year old girl? Then why let a homosexual teen Scout endanger a 12 year old Boy Scout by exposing them to the same danger?

    2. Why is it that the homosexual movement wants access to the Boyscouts? There are scores of ADULT men’s organizations that ban / blackball openly gay members?

    3. NAMBLA, which was an active member of the “Gay Rights” movement until 1993, has never been disavowed by them. The reason you don’t see NAMBLA up front with the “Gay Rights” movement is that they weren’t in keeping with the “victim” philosophy of the propaganda campaign laid out in “After the Ball”.

    Obama thinks the Muslim call to prayer is the most beautiful sound on Earth at sunset, yet during the service inside the mosque the Iman is preaching that homosexuals are evil and they should be hanged.

    Obama is giving traveling salesmanship new meaning. I wonder if there’s any topic he is NOT an expert on. s/

  • AlertUpUSA

    The “right” is in touch with the reality of morals, wholesome living, common decency, respect for life, and the right to defend our liberty from leftist socialist pedagogues and tyrants.

    Just because we don’t want the leftist, progressive agenda jammed down our throats on a daily basis, does not mean we are out of touch.

    We are not homophobic, but when we see gay modeling being proposed in the Anglican Church as “ok”, and as scout-masters in a Christian organization, it simply goes against our moral code. Why should we be forced to accept a gay agenda. We don’t want to join gay organizations so we can push our agenda. Don’t force yours on us. Perhaps you are hetero-phobic.

    I am sick of being made a villain for having conservative, moral and Christian AND Catholic beliefs. I do want to be able to enjoy my liberty as much as anyone else. Just don’t force yours on me and I will gladly do the same for you.

    Why must leftist / progressives have to be so vitriolic?

  • lainer51

    “inserts himself in Boy Scouts”is the key phrase here.

  • Peyton

    Let’s start an ObamaScouts for the gays, lefties, and government moochers and see how well that goes over.

  • Joe W.

    Can my pre-teen grandson join the Girl Scouts and sleep in the same tents as the girls on overnight trips?? Can I be a girl scout leader and take all those nubile, impressionable little girls out for a camp-out?? Looking at YOU, Senator Menendez…..

  • Drew Longview

    Nothing is more terrifying than a gay liberal.

  • Red Fred

    WISH THE DEBT MATTERED! Wish the Benghazi survivors mattered. Wish job implementation mattered. But no, it’s the Boy’s Scouts. Okay…

  • CatHerder

    Puzzled here, why would a lesbian want to be in the Boy Scouts? Penis envy?

  • Jim Denney

    “And,to the video tape, if you can stomach it.”
    No thanks ….

  • Red Fred

    Boy Scouts have the right to make their own decision, and we have the right to decide if our boys can participate, and form new groups if we so desire.

  • Roto

    Is this the “opportunity” our idiot President was referring to?

    “LA Times releases 1,200 ‘perversion files’ from Boy Scouts of America”

    The Los Angeles Times has added around 1,200 records to an expansive database documenting the alleged sexual abuse that the Boy Scouts of America attempted to cover up between 1985 and 1991. The database, which also includes 3,200 files from 1947 to 2005 that have not been released publicly, now “represents the most complete accounting of suspected sexual abuse in the Scouts that has been made public.”

    Does “Foxes in the Hen House” ring a bell Mr. President — or are you only going to “save just 1 child” from gun violence but not sexual abuse?

  • Darth Vengeance

    I still say that if gays want to have scouting, they should. Let them organize their own Gay Scouts. BTW, it’s none of the Kommander in Khief’s business who We the People choose to associate with!

    BHO disbands his Job Council but he’s all over the Boy Scouts. Ugh.

    Easy Mr. President, the merit badge for skeet shooting is in the mail.

  • GaryTheBrave

    What I don’t understand is why Obama says lesbians should be allowed in The Boy Scouts. Is he also for middle-aged men to be allowed to become members of The Brownies?

  • Arthur E Jackson

    Being homosexual is a choice not some birth defect. No one is born having sex with same sex partners, if I think I am a murder, say I am murder, but never comitt the act of murder means I am deceived in my mind, but not a murder. You have to murder someone to be a murder, you have to make a choice and have sex with a same sex partner to be gay. Now that’s the guy to lead your children at a scout camp out. It’s like throwing your children into a tank full of white sharks. All those that support it start your own Boy Scout troop and send your sons to with a phedophile for a camping trip

  • Arthur E Jackson

    Ever notice how most gays that live a gay life openly all have that same spirit on them? You can see them coming a mile away. Others you can’t tell. Those are the ones still fighting the spirit within, the others are being fully controlled by that spirit of sod&gomorha

    • Sons Thunder

      So, if I understand your post correctly, you are saying flamboyant homosexuals are being fully controlled by the spirit of Sodom and Gomorrah while more traditionally masculine gays who require you to do a little research before you can be certain are still fighting the spirit of the two ancient cities.

      I guess I would say thanks for posting but who doesn’t already know that? It’s akin to leaving a comment to remind us George Washington was our first president.

      • Arthur E Jackson

        You sure took the long road to say you agree
        I wasn’t speaking to you or this audience per se, but through them. I was trying to restore those enslaved to the bondage of homosexuality back to Christ by showing them how they became ensnared

  • J.N. Ashby

    The boy scouts already admit lesbians though…

  • DaProf

    You know,
    I thought it was bad that Nixon was the one who “signed” on my Eagle Scout card. But yeah, I pity the scouts today if they have “Obama” on theirs.

  • mike_in_kosovo

    Irony: That the same people that *howl* about ‘pedophile priests’ fully support gay Scoutmasters.

  • Garth Haycock

    While I don’t condone the use of a pejorative, seeing someone on the left talk about the right being out of touch is the epitome of irony.

  • TugboatPhil

    We’ll keep our path, you stick to the Hershey Highway.

  • John (it true me am)

    Also love how he picks the single offensive comment among dozens to show how “righties” are out of touch. Nevermind that on any left wing comment section the ratio of offensive to not is staggering…
