RUSH: Hey, I got a question. Ladies and gentlemen. As you know, it’s the Boy Scouts of America’s 100th anniversary. They do a jamboree every four years, and Obama is one of the first presidents to basically stiff ’em, probably because there’s not a merit badge for community organizing. If they come up with a merit badge for community organizing I’m sure Obama will go. So he’s going to go on The View and he’s gonna go fund-raise but he’s not going to go to the Boy Scouts. Once again a tradition and institution that, no question, has contributed to the wholesomeness, the decency, the goodness of the country, the president of the United States just flips off. Last November, the date specific was the 11th, I was in Tarrytown, New York. The Westchester-Putnam Council of the Boy Scouts of America awarded the Fox News Channel CEO Roger Ailes the 2009 Good Scout Award.
I was asked to go up there and introduce. Actually, no, I wasn’t. I volunteered to go up there. I got a note from the organizers saying that they were going to have this event, and would I like to buy a table or something in recognition of Mr. Ailes getting the award. I said, ‘Well, I’ll buy a table but I’ll come up there.’ So they put me… It wasn’t the head table but they put me at a table out there. I think Geraldo was the only Democrat in the place. A lot of the Fox people were there. I have a couple of sound bites from my introduction of Roger Ailes prior to him receiving the 2009 Good Scout Award from the Westchester-Putnam Council of the Boy Scouts of America.
RUSH ARCHIVE: This room tonight is America. This room tonight is a microcosm of what made this country great: The Boy Scouts of America. (audience applause) The values, the love of country, the recognition that as human beings our rights, our freedom, our essence, our yearning to be free come from our creator, from God, not from a government, not from other men, is what has made this country great.
RUSH: And I further stated…
RUSH ARCHIVE: We all want them to have the same opportunity we have. We all want them to have the same access to prosperity and whatever it is their ambition will take them to what we had, and I really believe that’s under assault now. And the people involved in instilling those values in the young people of America who it’s been said accurately tonight are ‘the future of the country,’ deserve applause. They deserve recognition, and they deserve to be inspired and motivated. Not only the kids doing it but the adults inspiring them. (audience applause) I am proud of all of you involved in the Scout program, wherever you are, and I am thrilled to be here and to be able to be a part of this.
RUSH: That was last November in Tarrytown, New York, where there’s the Tarrytown mob, a big mob contingent there that throws their olive pits in the river. But regardless, this was a great night. Ailes got the award, the Good Scout Award for 2009 and it was a tremendous night. It was wholesome and decent, and the president of the United States wants no part of it. It is a significant, significant change.
