Adjective, describes admirable behavior. Respectable in the sense of polite, considerate, intelligent, loving, caring. Originates with the Scout Oath (a Scout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent), but being Scoutlike is not limited to Scout events, nor do you have to ever be involved in organized Scouting, to practice Scoutlike conduct.
Why did you show that homeless lady how to fix an auto part?
So she can get a job, her family needs money
Why would you help someone like that?
I'm being Scoutlike
A slogan of liberals, placing the blame for problems with Iran, the environment, education, taxes, the crappy Sox season, Uncle Mike's kidney stones, etc. at the doorstep of our 43rd President. Exclusive to dumb liberals as smart liberals will try to fix problems instead of blaming them on conservatives, though unfortunately the smartest liberals are the least powerful ones. Really applicable to any blaming of any problem on your political rival, including of Obama and Clinton by conservatives and Newt Gingrich and John Boehnor by liberals.
Man, Bruce Springsteen's new album blows. Why can't he make songs as good as Thunder Road anymore?
There are many possible explanations that we could intelligently discuss but it's cheaper to blame Bush.
