It´s about time for some bipartisan...skeet shooting? Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tennessee, joined a chorus of skeptics who questioned President Barack Obama´s recent comments about his hobby of skeet shooting, a sport where participants fire shotguns to break airborne clay disks. "If he is a skeet shooter, why have we not heard of this? Why have we not seen photos? Why hasn´t he referenced this at any point in time?" Blackburn said Monday on CNN´s "Erin Burnett OutFront." "I tell you what I do think," she later added. "I think he should invite me to Camp David,
You knew this was another lie the minute it came out of his mouth. The kick of a twelve gauge would annihilate that skinny shoulder of his. I hope Congresswoman Blackburn continues to press her challenge. Show him up for what he is. Maybe Ed Henry will ask him about it at his next presser.
In 2009, the WH released an official photo of the Mooch and Obama watching a martial arts demo on the WH lawn. Photo captured Obama reacting like a terrified 10 year old girl to the fighter being tossed onto the mat. If the shrieking Clown in Chief couldn´t handle a mat toss, how could he ever hold a shotgun in those delicate hands?
The moron Frum said (paraphraed)if we take a look at how crime has gone down, we would see that we don´t need guns. David, tell that to the people of Chicago who´ve been crime victims every week and the stories don´t make it to the MSM!
VALERIE JARRETT: Geithner’s here to give you a briefing on your blind trust, sir. OBAMA: Great. No blindfold today, Tim. I’ll just close my eyes. GEITHNER: Good news, sir. Your holdings in publicly traded firearms manufacturers have doubled in value. Smith and Wesson and Sturm Ruger have been going, uh, great guns since 2009. OBAMA: Told ya so. Nothing causes revolvers and semi-automatics to fly off the shelves like a Democrat in the White House. GEITHNER: Your investment in ammunition manufacturers was also prescient, sir. They’re running three shifts since you ordered five billion rounds for your new Civilian National Security Force. OBAMA: I’ve always said, you can’t be too thin or too rich or have too many bullets. David, has Feinstein shown any sign of tumbling to my real agenda—repeal of the 22nd Amendment limiting me to two terms, not the 2nd Amendment? PLOUFFE: Negative. The plan is still operative: we blow the Republicans out in 2014 and push through both Houses a motion to repeal, which then goes out to the states. Media Matters tells me they’ve accumulated enough dirt on Republicans in state houses across the country to assure repeal. JARRETT: The repeal is then encapsulated in a formal document published by the Federal Register. It is then the law of the land. OBAMA: Tell me the best part again. PLOUFFE: You know it, sir. OBAMA: Tell me again. PLOUFFE: [sighs] You appointed the Register’s Archivist. He’ll make a slight mistake in composing the proclamation, adding the digit “2” in the right place, thus invalidating the 22nd Amendment, not the 2nd. OBAMA: I love my country. I’ll stop at four terms, when Crazy Joe’s too old to succeed me.
He will weasel out of this with ease. My guess is that he jokes that he "shoots them down with drones". Actually I will pat myself on the back with that.....it would get some laughs and he´d get credit for being very clever. That´s the usual outcome of his getting caught lying.
I was on the golf course the other day. I play maybe 100 times in 4 years. Anyway, today it is very distracting because there were an unusually large number of skeet shooters on the range next door. It really takes away all the thrill of playing another free round of golf.
When is Bammy ever at Camp David? Every week he is either out fund-raising (still) in far away places or he´s on the golf course.
By golly I´ll bet Bam Bam will take the Mooche, Bo and the girls out to Camp David for a nice quiet weekend(like what they all love) real soon. Mooche can finally take off her wig with bangs and just go "Angela Davis" while she´s there, since no one will see her.
I ran into Marsha many years ago at a gun show in Nashville while she was still in the state legislature. Cute, nice, and always on the right side of the issues. She was Tea Party before there was a Tea Party, and was very supportive of the grass roots movement to keep Tennessee from having a state income tax. I made a point of thanking her for her efforts.
She´s kinda small though. I wonder if she can handle a 12 guage. Can you shoot skeet with a 20? Whatever, I´m sure she could handle a bigger boomer than zero ever thought of doing.
Posters references to obama´s bad golf reminded me of a topic I´ve posted on several times before. Just after the 2008 election there was an article in either Golf or Golf Digest about Presidential golfers. Zip was rated as the 5th or 6th best of them with a reported 16 handicap. Somewhat later it became clear that obama is no 16. Even though his scorecards are guarded and not reported, the word leaked out that his average score is in the 100-105 range. That means his handicap is more like a 28 on his best day. obama lied about his golf like he lies about everything else. BTW I´ve looked for the Golf magazine article and cannot find it. It´s as if the article has been scrubbed from the Web.
#13 yes you can use a 20 gauge, the mental image of obama shooting skeet is both comical and unbelievable to say the least. But will he get away with lying? To quote our Sec of state. What difference does it make

I had to go to the Freepers, but I found the MMA photo (scroll just past half-way down the post): http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2878442/posts
We´ll see photos now.... dated at least months ago, if not longer, to ´´prove´´ that he´s been shootin´ at them skeets for quite some time now. Great sport.
Or maybe he´s not the one shooting at them - maybe he lets his Civilian Military yoots do his shooting for him. Isn´t that what they´re for? (Gotta wonder if each clay has a white/GOP face or name painted on it.....)
This will probably be like oil and water to the libs. Is this politically correct post Sandy Hook, with his moonbat left coast henchwoman NotSoFineStein submitting a bill to ban not only "scary" guns with military characteristics but shotguns and handguns as well? Bamboozler is probably trying to instill a false sense of security in gun-owning Americans. ´ not buying it.
He reads the Constitution and bible every night too! /s off.
Give me a break. He´s at the point now that lies just roll off his tongue as easily as breathing. Compulsive liers lie about everything, even when they don´t have to. Had a friend once who did this. She would even lie about what she had for breakfast because it´s just how she was wired. Show me one picture of our photo-op prez skeet shooting ( btw, who says "we do skeet shooting") and I´ll eat this iPad.
He probably meant "shooting up." I agree with others here who say he wouldn´t like the weight or the kick of the gun. Too much like work! I remember when my ex used to take me out target shooting (& sometimes skeet shooting). He tried to teach me how, but I didn´t like the kick or the noise. I enjoyed just watching the others shoot - which is what I suspect is all he does.
There exist an image of somebody who might be President Obama holding a gun at what appears to be the Camp David skeet range. It´s on sketchy web sites and various forums and has nothing like a provenance. It´s hard to find, considering its newsworthiness. And that there´s only one picture. No professional photographer takes only one picture.
Considering the expanded public interest in a the Presidential Skeet Shoots, now that Øbama has let the "cat out" so-to-speak, you would think the Presidential Press Corps would be excited with questions on the event- and, of course, photos.
Has jay C. been informed as to what to say when those questions come up in the daily briefings? Hmmmm? Or will the press corps, sensing a delicate moment for the liar in Chief, get the message to not ask any questions about this- you know, to help the so-called "President" keep his lie secret, like his university records and his immigration status, and his credibility intact?
She would humiliate and embarass his skinny neapolitan ass!..........................................So many lefty liars....Biden lies, the Hildebeast lies, Susan Rice lies, Holder lies, Hussein lies....this is what the 47% enjoy? Lies? This is what the ass-press rump-swab lap dogs enjoy? Lies? This is what Oprah, Ellen, Leno, Letterman, The View crew, all enjoy? Lies? What an audience of low-information public school morons!
I´ll NEVER understand the fawning and adoration of this foreign exchange student choom-smoking crack-snorting Alinsky Marxist Constitution-despising Liar! Go hang some curtains and shut the hell up, you lifelong liar! And tell Chewbacca the Mooch we all say hey, nice dress....NOT!
Has Obama ever been photographed doing anything remotely manly ? The guy can´t even open an umbrella. On June 8 , 2010 Obama hosted the Congressional picnic at the White House. He tried to walk Bo and photographic hilarity ensued as the puppy dragged him hither and yon. This may have been the first time Obama walked a dog which is a lot harder than eating them. A couple of photos had his loafers airborne-seriously. Michelle , Obama and Bo all walked out of the White House onto the lawn together for the photo op. Bo took off and Barry could not control the puppy. Michelle was photographed suddenly breaking into a run ( in a dress ) after the two of them as it was obvious that Barry was physically unable to control the dog. Obama was just a moment away from falling down and Michelle grabbed the leash in time. One iconic photo ( they may have scrubbed it by now ) had Obama , at the end of the leash , pirouetting up in the air like he was a ballerina .
#33 I´m 5ft 1 and I shoot trap with a 12 gauge. The gun was shortened to my length and I just use lighter loads. Marsha can do it with no sweat. If the gun is held correctly the kick is hardly noticed.
It is a fake. It is a photo from when Zippy was golfing on the day the SEALS killed bin laden. Super easy to find the real photo, just google obamma golfing photos. It comes up immediately. It is also posted as part of an article at usbacklash.org
Man they really think we are stupid. Can we impeach him for being such a liar?
WASHINGTON- For months, the talk was all about computer code. About response times. About glitches and bugs. People who didn´t know a URL from an http were blithely expounding on software snags and web design, thanks to the clunky launch of healthcare.gov, the insurance marketplace for the government´s big health care overhaul. With the website improving and tech chatter settling down, the conversation about the Affordable Care Act, or "Obamacare," is turning in other directions. (Snip) Or an agenda? The debate over President Barack Obama´s health care law has gradually morphed into a broader discussion about
George Zimmerman´s girlfriend is asking a Seminole County court to lift a no-contact provision against Zimmerman so the couple can "talk and be together," according to a court document obtained by CNN on Monday. Zimmerman was arrested on November 18 at his girlfriend Samantha Scheibe´s Apopka, Florida, home after the two had a heated fight. According to a police report about the incident, Scheibe said that after an argument, Zimmerman broke a table with a shotgun and then pointed it at her "for a minute." Zimmerman is charged with aggravated assault and misdemeanor counts of domestic violence
She wakes to the sound of breathing. The smaller children lie tangled beside her, their chests rising and falling under winter coats and wool blankets. A few feet away, their mother and father sleep near the mop bucket they use as a toilet. Two other children share a mattress by the rotting wall where the mice live, opposite the baby, whose crib is warmed by a hair dryer perched on a milk crate. Slipping out from her covers, the oldest girl sits at the window. On mornings like this, she can see all the way across Brooklyn to the Empire
On Sunday´s NBC Meet the Press, host David Gregory used the death of former South African President Nelson Mandela to lecture American politicians: "Mandela refused to be consumed by hatred and insisted on working toward a common purpose with his political foes. That, seems to me, is what is missing from this era of argument in Washington." [Listen to the audio or watch the video after the jump] However, Gregory portrayed President Obama as the victim of such polarization, rather than one of its instigators: "The election of our 44th president was similarly an example of how countries can overcome
The top 40 percent of households by before-tax income actually paid 106.2 percent of the nation’s net income taxes in 2010, according to a new study by the Congressional Budget Office. At the same time, households in the bottom 40 percent took in an average of $18,950 in what the CBO called “government transfers” in 2010. Taxpayers in the top 40 percent of households were able to pay more than 100 percent of net federal income taxes in 2010 because Americans in the bottom 40 percent actually paid negative income taxes, according to the CBO study entitled, “The Distribution of
All three networks on Monday morning highlighted the appearance of the Obamas at the Kennedy Center Honors, but only ABC fawned over "fashion win" of First Lady. Lara Spencer enthused that " one of the stars of the show was Michelle Obama." An excited Spencer explained that Mrs. Obama looked "absolutely ravishing in a flowing teal gown as she accompanied President Obama." The co-host declared, "Another big fashion win for the First Lady. CBS This Morning offered a full report on the various performers who were honored, but co-anchor Charlie Rose avoided ABC´s superlatives.
BANGUI, Central African Republic — Dozens of young men stood waiting for storm clouds to pass, as wind stirred up swirls of red dust on the largely deserted street in Central African Republic’s capital. Through the drizzle, they spotted a man in a flowing white robe traditionally worn by Muslims, hand-in-hand with his adolescent son. The style of dress was enough to confirm that this was their enemy. Hungry for revenge, the crowd descended upon the pair. The man’s terrified son broke away, and fled on foot, abandoning his father as the knife-wielding mob clutched the middle-aged man. Muslim rebels
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
