I struggle to see why anyone thinks it’s such a huge stretch to think that President Obama has gone skeet shooting, it’s the type of thing you do at places like Camp David. I bet he’s even ridden a horse once or twice! When we lived on the grounds of a resort in the Dominican Republic even I shot skeet (really badly) a couple times.
But not the Gun Truthers. I’m not going to link, but it’s from a site called “Weasel Zippers”-
I bet the photo was taken after his announcement that he has shot a gun or they would have released it sooner.
We are supposed to look at this image of him with a gun and. . . . .
This is a pr stunt to make us think he is qualified to take our guns away from us because. . . . . . he didn’t hold the gun stock and shoot himself in the face? ? ? ? ?
This is so insulting. This shows what he thinks of us. We are already sheep in the pen to him. He is just pushing us around in the enclosure for fun.
Once again, we are being scammed.
Where’s the recoil on his shoulder if this picture was caught the exact moment of discharge, as you would think by the muzzle smoke?
Even if this is a photo of the pResident firing a shotgun, it’s pretty clear that he does NOT do this “all of the time”. Anybody who actually does shoot on a regular basis can recognize his stance and grip as that of a rank beginner. The butt is too high and he isn’t leaning into the shot. I suspect that if the photo hasn’t already been through PhotoShop, he is firing rounds that are powder-only, no shot, and a light load at that. Typical of Barry – all smoke. As in every photo or video of Obama attempting to engage in ANY sporting activity, his lack of masculine qualities is evident. He’s a fraud, a poseur and a fag.
Let’s see some video of this event. Surely there is some, right? No… no there is not. If there were, it would betray this as simply another staged and posed-for shot of Obama pretending to be a man. Sickening.
I do believe the internet term for this is “kerning” in reference to the keyboard kommandos that took apart the CBS Bush document. Why even try, it just feeds their fertile (poop filled) brains.
In this photo released by the White House, President Barack Obama shoots clay targets on the range at Camp David, Md., Saturday, Aug. 4, 2012. The White House released a photo of Obama firing a gun, two days before he heads to Minnesota to discuss gun control. In a recent interview with The New Republic magazine, Obama said yes when asked if he has ever fired a gun. He said “we do skeet shooting all the time,” except for his daughters, at Camp David.

ADDED- OHMG, holy brisket in a tea kettle, the Washington Post Fact Checker actually wasted huge amounts of pixels on this bull hockey.
Pretty soon they’ll have the NYT doing a tick tock of his bowel movements.
I’ve been adamant about the bust still being in the White House since the meme started, so much so that I got huffy with Emily Friedman (@EmilyABC) and Chuck Todd (@ChuckTodd) earlier today about both of them repeating the “It was sent back to the U.K.” meme. Ms Friedman promptly put me in my place, sending me a link to this-
Diplomats were at first reluctant to discuss the whereabouts of the Churchill bronze, after its ejection from the seat of American power. But the British Embassy in Washington has now confirmed that it sits in the palatial residence of ambassador Sir Nigel Sheinwald, just down the road from Vice President Joe Biden’s official residence. It is not clear whether the ambassador plans to keep it in Washington or send it back to London.
I ate my words and gave her the win and moved on. Then I see this-
White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer blasted back Friday, saying the statue remains in the White House, but has moved positions to a hallway outside the Treaty Room, in the president’s residence.
In a blog post on the White House’s website, Pfeiffer included an official White House photo of Obama viewing the bust with British Prime Minister David Cameron during a visit in 2010.
“Hopefully this clears things up a bit and prevents folks from making this ridiculous claim again,” Pfeiffer wrote.
But late Friday, British Embassy Spokesman James Barbour said there were actually two busts of Churchill, both by artist Sir Jacob Epstein.
The one that was loaned to the George W. Bush administration in 2001 was returned after Bush left office and now resides at the British ambassador’s residence in Washington.
A second bust, which is part of the White House’s own art collection, is displayed in the White House. It is that bust which Obama is pictured looking at with Cameron in 2010.
So Mittens doesn’t have to import the ugly thing back to the U.S. if he wins (shudder), just walk down the hall and move it himself.
