But short of asking his attorney general to sue the Scouts over the group’s exclusion of openly gay men from becoming scoutmasters, there’s not much Obama can do except try to lead public opinion against the organization as currently constituted.

So what’s the point of sharpening and politicizing the debate over gay scoutmasters?

Well, we know that Obama is prone to sharing his opinions on everything from the conduct of the Cambridge, Mass. Police to the rules of professional football, so perhaps this is just the return of Professor Obama, commentator.

Whatever his reason, though, gnawing on the subject of gay scoutmasters as fathers and sons across the land sat down for the big game on Super Bowl Sunday will certainly not do anything to diminish the Republican attack that the president is a hard-left ideologue.
