One could forgive [Obama] for attending an urgent meeting with Hamid Karzai, his intelligence chiefs or even his pathetic economic team. Better still if he had scheduled a meeting with a cadre of experienced economists who actually know the difference between a government giveaway and an economic stimulus, who are smart enough – and honest enough – to have paid their taxes. Wow! That would be a momentous event worthy of his undivided attention – but no!
The Boy Scouts were dissed just so he could appear on "The View" with a group of vacuous airheads. Instead of encouraging a group of young, highly motivated achievers, Obama chose to discuss political issues on a program that is designed to appeal to welfare queens and other mentally challenged ne'er-do-wells, who park themselves on couches to watch the drivel on daytime television.

(Chastain tries to hide the fact that President Reagan never attended a Boy Scout Jamboree with the redirection that "President Ronald Reagan sent the first lady to the 1985 event.")
