Hirsen Falsely Claims Obama 'Stiffed the Scouts'
Topic: Newsmax

James Hirsen writes in his Aug. 3 Newsmax "Left Coast Report":

President Barack Obama’s appearance last week on “The View” was his third time on the show.

He was scheduled to speak to the Boy Scouts of America on the same day that he taped “The View.” Obama is the honorary chairman of the organization, but he stiffed the scouts to go on a daytime TV talk show, and followed that up with fundraising events in hopes of fattening coffers for upcoming midterm elections.

In fact, Obama was never scheduled to appear in person at the Boy Scout Jamboree. As Fox News reported, the Boy Scouts knew two months prior to the Jamboree that Obama would not be able to attend.

Hirsen also fails to mention that Obama has welcomed Boy Scouts into the Oval Office twice during his presidency, most recently on July 12, or that Obama supplied a videotaped message to the Jamboree. He also fails to mention that Ronald Reagan also failed to attend a Boy Scout Jamboree during his presidency.
