Why not just stop at White House mocks? That´s all they do when anyone at anytime questions them. And heavens knows they need to be questions. How many photoshopped pictures have they blessed us with?

I thought when you were shooting skeet, you were following the clay up into the air, not shooting straight. Looks more like target practice.

What the photo doesn´t show is Boehner is on the other end, running away!

This is so laughable. #1--Who in his right mind is going to believe that this photo was taken BEFORE the poseur-in-chief opened his yap about skeet shooting? #2--Someone correct me if I´m wrong, but don´t you shoot skeet in the air? What´s 0 doing pointing straight downrange? Idon´t know what they are trying to do here--this trumped-up job won´t convice any Obama doubters, and his brain-dead supporters don´t need convincing anyway.

The only possible time a gun might be held that low would be when shooting from stations 1,2,6 or 7 if the target had flown way past the center stake. A rookie might do this but either the high or low house would be in any photo of this. This is 100% staged or photoshopped. Mock that, you morons.

1. Can´t see his face
2. No mom jeans
3. Big time bad hold. If this is real, he only fired once because he dislocated his shoulder.
4. Where is the recoil (from the gun, not from his image)?
5. Shouldn´t he be leaning INTO the shot?
6. How come Secret Service didn´t show him correct way to hold and fire a shotgun?
7. I agree with shooting at skeet on a skeet nest protecting skeet eggs.

I agree with #5, 7, & 8. We have no idea what 0bama is shooting at in that photo (op), or whether he is only pulling the trigger and aiming at nothing. I´ll believe it when I see a video of him loading the gun, aiming at something we can actually see, and firing.

"3. Big time bad hold. If this is real, he only fired once because he dislocated his shoulder." I´m guessing he only fired once and the huge purple bruise just looked normal.

"4. Where is the recoil (from the gun, not from his image)?" Highly secret, super effective Gov´t compensating ports."
"5. Shouldn´t he be leaning INTO the shot?" Why? Like all of his sporting endeavors, Zip is an epic poser and really gets nothing right.

Posed.

He may have even pulled the trigger but his stance, hold and shouldering are all those of someone whose entire experience with firearms is from saturday matinees.

What I find interesting is the incredible highspeed film used to capture the exact moment of firing. You see the smoke as it erupts, fraction of a second later it is all gone. You even see the smoke coming through the barrel porting. But what is really astonishing is the wad.

Look closely at the end of the barrel, see the yellowish extension of the top barrel? Blow up the photo 1000% on your viewr and look at it. It is the plastic shotwad about a half inch from the gun barrel. You can even see the slight deflection as the gun barrel is rising after the wad left the barrel.

How di the photographer get such an exquisite shot in such high resolution and detail using a hand held camera shooting at normal outdoor photography speeds.

He didn´t, he was using high speeed equipment on a tripod and all set up to capture the image.

100% thought out and posed. The photo is shot at an angle that could only be achieved by being in front of the firing line. Anybody know any skket club that woud allow that?

#41, and others, Shotgun porting is gettin ubiquitous on the clays range. It is pretty dubious if it does anything. It is supposed to reduce recoil and barrel jump but I dount it does much for either.

On an over/under it doesn´t even accomplish that since to reduce jump it needs to port to the top. Blow up the picture and you will see the extensive porting on both barrels. Especially the lower one, ther must be 20 holes, maybe more.

Does make the whole thing look funny though.

He could be shooting at clay pigeons. That would explain the angle. Skeet is a particular type of shooting and the angle would be upward more than the pic shows but I think the claim is that Obama is shooting at clay pigeons.

Having shot a few thousand rounds, I don´t see anything to complain about.

One day after making an audio appearance on RT to ask Vladimir Putin about Russian surveillance operations, National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden authored a Guardian column to clarify his intentions behind the question and push back on critics who suggest he was attempting to help whitewash the Russian president’s abuses. “Does Russia intercept, analyse or store millions of individuals’ communications?” Snowden asked Putin on Thursday, garnering a denial from Putin that included the statement: “We don’t have mass system of such interception. And according to our law it cannot exist.” Critics alleged that Snowden appeared in a scripted manner,

BISMARCK, N.D. — A federal judge on Wednesday overturned a North Dakota law that bans abortions when a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which can be as early as six weeks into pregnancy and before many women know they’re pregnant. U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland said the law is “invalid and unconstitutional” and that it “cannot withstand a constitutional challenge.” The state attorney general said he was looking at whether to appeal the decision by the Bismarck-based judge. North Dakota is among several conservative states that have passed new abortion restrictions in recent years, but abortion rights supporters called

After devoting 15 minutes to a Barack Obama interview in the last 24 hours, CBS piled on with another seven minutes devoted to a "scary powerful" top aide. Charlie Rose offered a puff piece on Alyssa Mastromonaco, Obama´s deputy chief of staff. The CBS This Morning co-anchor on Thursday offered no tough questions and instead repeatedly underlined just how important she is. Rose marveled, "You know what somebody called you? Scary powerful." The co-host narrated, "We recently spoke to her about her low profile, high power role. Every time I read a piece about you, it talks about power."

At the same Clinton Foundation-sponsored event Thursday where Chelsea Clinton announced her first pregnancy to the world, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took a question from a young, 19-year-old woman who chose to publicly reveal her status as an undocumented immigrant. “That was incredibly brave,” Clinton told the woman after she shared her story. The woman, who introduced herself as Nova, got emotional as she told Clinton and the other people in attendance that she was an undocumented immigrant. Struggling through tears, she continued, “I want to say that it’s been extremely difficult for me

President Obama mocked Republican opponents of his health care law on Thursday, saying that they were going through the “stages of grief” and that critics should accept that the law is here to stay. “I recognize that their party is going through, you know, the stages of grief, right?,” said Obama during a press briefing at the White House. “Anger and denial and all that stuff and it -- we´re not at acceptance yet -- but at some point, my assumption is, is that there will be an interest to figure out how do we make this work in the

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

FORT WORTH — Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis will undergo neck surgery today, her campaign said Tuesday. “After experiencing shoulder and right arm pain in recent weeks, Sen.

Davis, of Fort Worth, will undergo the outpatient surgery at the Fort Worth Brain and Spine Institute. Dr. Thomas Ellis will perform the

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already
