It's obvious neither of you actually saw him on the view as he was asked some actually pretty tough questions.

I was talking the actual video and source material. I want reality not someones fantasy. I don't want a brettbart wannabe.
President Bush, a former Cub Scout, praised Scouting and its enduring values when he appeared by video to the 40,000 Scouts, volunteers, and leaders at the 15th National Scout Jamboree at Fort A.P. Hill, Va., in July 2001.
Obama may be doing the boy scouts a favor, however. In 2005, 300 boy scouts awaiting the arrival of President George W. Bush were treated for heat exhaustion; 40 were taken to local hospital. Bush ended up canceling that visit due to inclement weather but he did eventually speak before a crowd of 75,000 scouts and visitors several days later.

The Boy Scouts held their national jamboree, and invited Obama to attend. But typical of Obama, he stiffed them in favor of TV cameras.
He attended The View with Joyce and Whoopie. They are more his speed, anyway.
But the Scouts didn't appreciate the snub. They loudly booed his taped message to them.
I don't think I have ever seen the Scouts boo a POTUS before. This is definitely an achievement badge - Recognizing Corrupt Politicians.

Honestly?...If this vid hasn't been doctored, then this is a symptom of the divisivness in this country. When the Boy Scouts of America disrespect the President of The United States...the disease and rhetoric have reached the children.

So I guess my friends and dad lied to me, and the video was doctored to.
No,it really did happen. If not I would love to know how you know this seeing as how you must have been there by your knowledge on this event.
As for the Reagan year wasn't there wouldn't know only keeping count of the ones I was around for.
Obama is the first president not to give a speech at the National Jamboree, and for what a spot on The View. What a great president we have.
Being as how I attended the last Jambo and know people who were at this one I will let you know that they were in fact booing. Obama sent a taped message instead of showing up.
