    Another FIRST for Obama,

    Every President since 1912 has been the honorary President of the Boy Scouts of America.

    President Obama refused that honor.

    Did you hear anything about the Boy Scouts 100th Anniversary? Why did the press ignore it? Let's see, they promote honor, integrity, putting others first, love of country and of course they believe in God.

    Not much press coverage on this story either,the first president in 100 years to insult his finest citizens, Eagle Scouts.

    John Beauregard, CEO of the South Texas Council of the Boy Scouts of America joins us just after 7AM. David Haynie has two sons who have achieved the rank of Eagle Scout. Dave Hiser's son is working on his Eagle Scout award now.

    This is the E-mail Linda Thacker sent to Glenn Beck and I forwarded to Glenn's producer Adam.

    Dear Mr. Beck,
    On March 24, 2009 I had the honor of attending my Grandson, David Osborne's Eagle Scout Court of Honor. I imagine you have attended one of these wonderful ceremonies. I also feel confident that you are very knowledgeable of what it means to have earned the status of Eagle Scout. Our entire family is so very excited and at the Court of Honor we were all just beaming as our wonderful young man was honored for his achievements.

    After the Court was closed David's leaders pulled him aside and explained to him that they regretted to have to explain to him, as sad as it is, that his certificate was different from others they had presented because his certificate did not have the signature of the President of the United States .

    They explained that Obama does not support the Boy Scouts of America and therefore does not sign the Eagle Certificates. To date I believe there may be as many as 10,000 of this country’s finest young men who do not have the signature of the president of the country they have taken an oath to respect and serve on their Eagle Certificate.

    To my knowledge Congress chartered BSA in 1916 part of which the President of the United States is the Honorary President of The Boy Scouts of America and President Obama is the first sitting president to personally REFUSE to sign these certificates. I believe if the country were to be educated on national television of what the Boy Scouts of America stands for they would join those of us who already know, and would be as outraged as we are! Also, your good friend Jim Lago was also in attendance at this Eagle Court of Honor. I had the privilege of speaking with him this morning on his radio talk show here in Corpus Christi and shared with him this same information. He was equally alarmed..... to say the least.

    This information should ignite in every parent the urgency to instill the great values held by the Boy Scouts of America in their young men for the cause of maintaining this great nation. We must stand united.

      This was an early issue in Obama's administration. In fact he doesw sign them now, whether he believes in the program or not, who knows. The problem according to Obama spokes people, is that there was a delay in getting signatures so a bunch went out without the signatures. The ones without could call the BS council and get signed ones.

      The real question is was there a delay or did he start to sign them because the shit hit the fan, just like when he blew off Memorial day that first year. He took so much grief he never missed another ceremony again. We will never know the truth

    I think he ignored the Boy Scouts because they promote patriotism instead of socialism like he (Obama) wants to shove down our throats.
