ANDRE BAUER: These young people get to see that you don't have to be a career politician to be president of the United States. You don't have to be the most polished person he talked about loyalty and trustworthiness. He talked about do what you love, work hard, never give up. He gave an inspirational speech. Look, the left has been trying to destroy the boy scouts for years. I can't believe they're concerned about them now. They want to bring girls into Boy Scouts, I mean it's the craziest thing I've ever heard. Look this guy is the commander in chief, the last president didn't come once in eight years. And so now we're condemning this guy because he said something that doesn't fit with the political mold that we've put up with for so long? It was probably refreshing to these guys.
