Barack Obama, in an attempt to appear sympathetic to gun owners´ concerns as he pursues a gun-banning agenda in the wake of the Sandy Hook school shooting, recently bragged that he goes skeet shooting at Camp David “all the time.” Responding to the blowback from skeptics who doubted Obama was telling the unvarnished truth (Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) challenged Obama to a skeet shooting contest), the White House not only released a photo of Obama shooting skeet, but White House press secretary Jay Carney also tried to water down Obama’s statement. Carney claimed Obama had “never pretended to or
I was just reading a story about a high school freshman in Florence Az. who was suspended for having a picture of a gun as his desktop background. Wonder what would happen if the picture was of obama holding a gun ´shooting´ skeet.
"Obama´s comments about shooting had been entirely unplanned"
That´s his biggest problem. If it isn´t preloaded into the teleprompter, president momjeans will accidentally inject his inborn stupidity into every statement he makes. Then he must get Carney to talk his way out of it.
I don´t believe the incompetent sissy ever picks up anything more lethal than a golf club. There is too much chance he will hurt himself with it.
Obama is not going to gain any popularity with gun owners and it doesn´t matter how many silly pictures the WH releases of him in his dork clothes awkwardly holding one. We are already well aware of liberal views on our 2nd Amendment rights. #8 is right - a liberal Supreme Court could very well try to eliminate private gun ownership. That is exactly why the 2nd Amendment exists.
#11 I agree. The democrats want to take everything away from the average American citizen...your money earned from earnings, wages, and investments. Your pensions, 401K, and savings are under siege along with your healthcare. The bad news is they use what they take for pandering, bribes, and political playoffs. Highway Robbery!
Even Joseph Goebbels would be embarrassed by this little twerp, Carney. obama may have gotten away with these rediculous lies when he was a community organizer (whatever in hell that is) lecturing to the dumbest people on planet Earth, but he seems to believe EVERYONE is that stupid.
I guess I shouldn´t question what a community organizer is, the Useless Media thought was a fantastic qualification to be the President of the United States.
OK students, one more time: Preamble to the bill of Rights. "The conventions of a number of the States having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added; And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best insure the beneficient ends of its institution." Read it again, Federal Government has no say so when it comes to the Bill of Rights.

Was there ever a more appropriately named press secretary? Here´s the definition of "carney" from the dictionary: "carny or carney 1 (´k??n?) — vb, -nies , -nying , -nied , -neys , -neying , -neyed. Informal ( Brit ) to coax or cajole or act in a wheedling manner".
I now believe (without a doubt) that Obammy does this stuff deliberately to drive us on the right crazy. It´s his idea of fun. "Hey, Moochell, watch them go nuts when I say I shoot a gun! Ha, Ha. Too funny." Next week he´ll tell us he plays football and was the star quarterback at Hawaii High.
Seriously, if he isn´t doing it with malice a forethought then he is as crazy as Dr. Strangelove and we are in more trouble than we realize.
If Obama was smart he´d stick to bowling and baseball. Give Obama a break. The only things remotely American he has ever done are play golf and shoot hoops. I love that Carney didn´t know the difference between skeet and trap shooting. Neither would Obama.
Obama is a liar. Carney is a liar. Obama is a punk smart-a**. Carney is a punk smart-a**. Obama is a lefty liberal creep. Carney is a lefty liberal creep. Obama reads from a teleprompter. Carney reads from the Lefty talking points. Obama is a foreign exchange student with fake birth certificate, fake transcripts, lost law license, and a fake skeet shooting photo shopped picture. Carney is a lap-dog rump-swab who will say anything and tell lies to protect his messiah.
Well, I for one, know exactly what Obozo is shooting. It´s another word that starts with the letter ´S´ and it isn´t skeet.
And usually skeet enthusiasts speak of ´shooting a round of skeet´. Which is 100 shots. That´s 4 boxes of shotgun shells. I wish someone would ask Carney or even Obozo how many shots make up a round of skeet.
Two things: Why did McAffee say I was going to a prohibited site on Breitbart? Also, when you have to tell people things like, ".. and that´s the truth," you know much of what they´ve said to that point was lies. I love how Dana Perino described Carney, "Looks like his shoes are too tight."
The WH released a picture of Obama improperly holding and firing a shotgun. What he was shooting at is anybody ´s guess. I´d bet the noise scared him. The picture didn´t show him dropping the shotgun and running in terror.
Let´s not kid ourselves. The left´s current attempt to ban the so-called assault rifles and high-capacity magazines has a hidden purpose - start to limit the citizenry´s ability to rise up against its government and military. You think this is a stretch? Guess again.
WASHINGTON — President Obama and congressional Democrats, seizing on the good news of an improving health care website and rising enrollments, on Wednesday highlighted parts of the law that are popular with the public and reminded Americans, and the law’s opponents, of what would be lost if the Affordable Care Act were repealed. As part of that political counteroffensive, which began this week, Democratic congresswomen challenged Republicans to present an alternative that would provide free preventive health services for the 105 million Americans who have already received them under the law. At the same time, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee
Fox & Friends host Elisabeth Hasselbeck criticized President Barack Obama’s recent speech about income inequality, arguing that Obama was unwisely attempting to change the subject from the Affordable Care Act in a way that highlighted the growing inequality under his own presidency. “Obamacare isn’t working, so the president goes to his old faithful ‘class warfare argument,’” Hasselbeck said. “He’s saying he wants to take out inequality and his policies from the beginning have been to equalize.” But, she continued, “the top 1%—their income rose by 31.4% between 2009 and 2012. Income for everyone else, you know how much that grew?
WASHINGTON – The U.S. economy grew at a 3.6 percent annual rate from July through September, the fastest since early 2012. But nearly half the growth came from a buildup in business stockpiles, a trend that could reverse in the current quarter and hold back growth. The Commerce Department´s second estimate of third-quarter growth was much higher than the initial 2.8 percent rate reported last month. And it was well above the 2.5 percent growth rate for the April-June quarter. But almost the entire third-quarter revision came from a big jump in stockpiles. Consumer spending, the lifeblood of the economy,
[Video] REP. BOB GOODLATTE (R-VA): Professor Turley, the constitution, the system of separated powers is not simply about stopping one branch of government from usurping another. It´s about protecting the liberty of Americans from the dangers of concentrated government power. How does the president´s unilateral modification of act of Congress affect both the balance of power between the political branches and the liberty interests of the American people? JONATHAN TURLEY: Thank you, Mr. Chairman. The danger is quite severe. The problem with what the president is doing is that he´s not simply posing a danger to the constitutional system. He´s
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell pushed back against President Barack Obama’s claim that Republicans have no alternative to his failing healthcare law, telling Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren “this is a president that has a difficult time telling the truth.” The Republican leader sat down with Van Susteren to dispute Obama’s accusation that Republicans were merely obstructionists with no plan of their own: VAN SUSTEREN: The president spoke yesterday and he had a lot of harsh words, but one of the thing he said is that the GOP has no plans in reference to healthcare. He also said that you
VIENNA/MEXICO CITY- Mexican police have found dangerous radioactive medical material stolen by thieves that the United Nations said could provide an ingredient for a "dirty bomb," the country´s national nuclear safety commission CNSNS said on Wednesday. The truck was found on Wednesday close to where it was stolen outside Mexico City. The thieves removed the radioactive material from a protective case, exposing them to dangerous levels of radiation then dumped it less than a mile away. The truck was stolen on Monday while it was taking cobalt-60 from a hospital in the northern city of Tijuana to a radioactive waste-storage
After a near week-and-a-half “vacation” from being on-air, MSNBC’s Martin Bashir resigned Wednesday afternoon in light of comments he made about someone defecating in Sarah Palin‘s mouth. As Mediaite readers are likely well aware, I’ve gone after Bashir’s show multiple times, not for partisan reasons (I occasionally agree with the host) but because I believe his show represented the very worst aspects of cable news today. There are plenty of nasty, counterproductive hosts and pundit on Fox and CNN as well, but Bashir’s show somehow managed to combine all those negatives into one giant mess. And so, with that, I
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
President Obama will cast growing income inequality and a decline in economic mobility as a “fundamental threat to the American dream” during a speech Wednesday in Washington. The speech will serve as an early preview for next year’s State of the Union address, according to a White House official, who said Obama would focus much of his energy over the next three years on the issue. “The decisions we make over the next few years will determine whether or not our children will grow up in an America where, if you work hard, you can get ahead,” the official said.
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
Good stuff from Jonathan Turley at today’s House hearing on executive power, although I regret that I couldn’t find a more user-friendly format for you to watch. There’s no compilation clip; you’ll have to make do with the C-SPAN embed by fast-forwarding to the time cues I give you and being patient while the vid buffers (and buffers, and buffers).(Snip)That brings us to point two: Even if Congress can’t stop Obama, the courts can. The problem there, though, says Turley, is that O and the DOJ have argued successfully in many cases that no one has standing to sue him
During a presentation at the White House in which President Barack Obama touted the benefits of the Affordable Care Act, the president declared that his signature health care reform law was not going to be repealed. This assertion led his administration members, his staff, and audience members to rise from their seats and give the president a standing ovation. Obama said that ACA opponents’ alternative to the health care reform law is to champion repeal and going back to the health care delivery system status quo ante. He specifically cited Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who he said was asked directly for
A woman has revealed how difficult it is to eat healthily and stay full when living off an average food stamp budget. Melinda Moulton, from Huntington, Vermont, was one of 200 people to take part in the 3Squares Challenge, which saw her living for a week on just $36 worth of food, or around $1.71 a meal. Opting to try and eat as healthily as possible, Ms Moulton resorted to cheap foods like yogurt for breakfast, two handfuls of peanuts for lunch and lentil stew for dinner, all of which left her unsatisfied.´I don´t know how people do it,´ said
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
