White House releases photo of Obama
shooting at Camp David

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:charliecoconut, 2/2/2013 5:46:12 PM

The White House has released a photograph of President Obama skeet shooting at Camp David -- some proof for critics skeptical about whether Obama, amid efforts to tighten gun control, saying he takes target practice at the presidential retreat and that he has a “profound respect” of the tradition of hunting. The official photo apparently depicts Obama – wearing protective glasses and earmuffs -- firing the shotgun Aug. 4, 2012. It was released Friday on the White House’s Flickr account.

But no pictures of the dead skeet he shot. Maybe those pix will be released next.

Gee...we´re sorry...but was the White House laboring under the delusion that America isn´t fully aware Obama spends most of his waking hours shooting...

What? Guns? Oh...sorry. Thought it was verbal scatology related...

With the way his cheek was sucked down against the stock, he only fired one shot.

Not so fast, boys and girls. August 4th is the president´s birthday and he spent it playing golf. It´s all over FB; someone has proven once again that the skeeter-in-chief is an inveterate liar.

Skeet shooters wear a vest to carry their ammo, their spent shells, and to cushion against the recoil of the shotgun. Skeet shooters typically don´t stand straight up, they lean forward just a little. The President can shoot skeet any way he wants to, as any rich guy with his personal skeet range, but the photo has a staged look. Go to any skeet range and see what I´m talking about.

If I´m not mistaken, skeet shooters also aim their guns at the clays, which are up in the air--not straight downrange at shoulder height. BTW, I didn´t know Obama was left-handed...

Most people don´t shoot skeet or trap with dark sunglasses on.
Yes, he should be leaning forward a bit.
Hopefully only one barrel was loaded, so when he dropped the shotgun, he didn´t Cheney someone.

Yes, the big o is left handed. That was made clear to all us serfs when he signed something really important in front of those moving picture boxes. BTW, in addition to the skeet he shoots, he fires at duck decoys too with seldom missing a one.

Notice his left hand is on the barrel and not fully on the wood stock. Bet he has one heck of a hand burn.

Is that smoke for real or was that photoshopped too?

Just more proof of the low IQ of Democrats and those who are tagged as "Obama Hindlickers" for believing him.

I could care less if he did or didn´t fire a weapon, if he respects hunting, if he shoots skeet. Gun control isn´t about hunting. It´s about deterring my ability to defend the inalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness bestowed upon me by my creator, my god. No man has the right to do that.

The barrels are probably ported; holes drilled to help with recoil and maintaining a sight picture. But can´t help but saying this is poorly staged or photoshopped.

That’s what you get when you have a bunch of photo-shoppers who know nothing about guns!

They never heard of smokeless powder?!

Shotguns don’t emit blue smoke when they are fired.
Any smoke seen would be dark-gray…

If it’s not photo-shopped it’s staged with a phony round set to produce all that smoke. (A movie set scenario, perhaps?)

Very awkward looking photo. Notice how high on his shoulder the butt of the gun sits. This would guarantee you a bruised shoulder.

Something wrong about this. Something staged or not a photo of him shooting skeet.If the WH has faked something here then they are really stupid. Something will come out in spite of the MSM. Ask Dan Rather.

The most interesting part of the photo, for me, is his sighting plane and the location of the butt of the gun.
Those of you who know how to shoot a shotgun know what I mean.
This is the skeet shooting equivalent of the kenyan klown riding his girlie bike with his helmet on.

A cheesy - and clearly staged - stunt intended for the consumption of low information voters, i.e., stupid people.

Many previous posters on this thread got the phoniness of this just right: dark glasses, standing up too straight, firing downrange, no vest. He probably got off one round for the cameras and called it a day. At least he didn´t ask, in a really butch voice, "Where can I get me a huntin´ license?" like John Fraud Kerry.

A couple things:

First, what editor let this article go to ´press´? He´s not wearing ´ear muffs´. That´s hearing protection. ´Ear muffs´ keep your ears warm during winter.

And then this: "The back-and-fourth about whether the ....." ´Fourth´? Are they all using Dragon Dictation software instead of typing these articles?

Lastly, he had to look manly on guns. He couldn´t choose hunting. Nobody would believe it. Skeet and trap shooting is an Olympic sport and, therefore, manly as well as cosmopolitan. He ´satisfies´ both sides by doing this.

And to think we had a Revolution over an increased tax on tea.

It is time we regain our Republic. My sincere hope is that the tree of liberty isn´t thirsty.

This photo is a good example of the generalized Obama failure to surround himself with informed people.

If he was going to get his picture taken shooting skeet, he should have had a real skeet shooter on hand to get him into the right clothing, hold the gun the right way and in the right direction, and have him shoot 8 or 10 rounds before the picture is taken so he relaxes a bit.

If he had done all that, he would have developed a better understanding and respect for target shooters in general AND he might have realized that skeet shooting can be fun.

Having power is not the same thing as being a real man.

Administration close to finalizing rule
to give wind farms a pass on killing eagles

The Obama administration is moving toward finalizing a rule that would give alternative energy farms a pass for killing bald and golden eagles for decades, just weeks after it took legal action for the first time against a company for doing so. The rule by the Interior Department extends the length of the permits that allow farms to unintentionally kill the eagles without penalty from five to 30 years, according to department records. The rule authorizes the “non-purposeful” killing of eagles, but also will require farms to implement certain guidelines to help with eagle conservation.

President Barack Obama, already embroiled in a battle over a government shutdown, jumped into another dispute on Saturday - a long-running fight over the name of the Washington Redskins NFL team. Obama said that if he owned the team, he would consider changing the name, which American Indians and others have long pilloried as racist. "I´ve got to say if I were the owner of the team and I knew that the name of my team, even if they´ve had a storied history, that was offending a sizeable group of people, I´d think about changing it," Obama said

A Democratic campaign office here usually would be quiet this time of year, a few weeks after the state´s legislature wrapped up work and lawmakers headed off to summer vacations. But even though it´s not an election year, the office is in full campaign mode, with volunteers working the phones and reviewing maps in anticipation of a new front of modern campaigning -- the recall phase.

In the midst of questions about the Justice Department’s failure to divulge documents about the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trial, Gohmert made a side comment about how the House of Representatives found Holder in contempt in 2012 for refusing to turn over documents related to the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal. “I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight,” Gohmert said. “You don’t want to go there, buddy!

Baseball Hall of Famer Hank Aaron compared Republicans that oppose President Barack Obama to the Ku Klux Klan. Speaking to USA Today Tuesday on the 40th anniversary of his then record-breaking 715th home run, the 80-year-old Aaron said that Republicans are hindering Obama’s job performance. “Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated,” Aaron told USA Today Sports.

Rev. Al Shaprton, the controversial civil rights leader-turned-broadcaster, was a confidential FBi informant for years and helped the feds put members of the Genovese and Gambino organized crime families behind bars, it was revealed Monday in a sensational exposé. President Barack Obama will speak this week for the second time at the annual meeting of Sharpton´s National Action Network, raising questions about the group´s special treatment. Sharpton´s special relationship with the Justice Department may also explain why his NAN has been allowed to skirt responsibility for $1.9 million in back taxes and penalties it has owed the IRS since 2006

A few weeks ago, the liberal comedian Bill Maher and conservative strategist and pundit Bill Kristol had a brief spat on Maher’s HBO show, putatively over what instigated the tea party but ultimately over the psychic wound that has divided red America and blue America in the Obama years. The rise of the tea party, explained Maher in a let’s-get-real moment, closing his eyes for a second the way one does when saying something everybody knows but nobody wants to say, “was about a black president.” Both Maher and Kristol carry themselves with a weary cynicism that allows them to

A married freshman Republican congressman who campaigned on his Christian, conservative values apologized Monday after surveillance video surfaced purportedly showing him in a lengthy liplock with a staffer. In the Dec. 23 footage, obtained by a local newspaper, Rep. Vance McAllister, R-La. - who ahead of his election last fall ran multiple campaign ads trumpeting his faith and family - is seen kissing and embracing a woman for about 20 seconds at his Monroe, La., district office. The Ouachita Citizen reports the woman is the congressman´s 33-year-old part-time scheduler, who is also married.

The chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee says investigators have uncovered evidence that a former Internal Revenue Service official may have committed crimes as part of the agency´s tea party controversy. Rep. Dave Camp set a committee vote for Wednesday on whether to refer Lois Lerner, who used to head the agency´s tax-exempt division, to the Justice Department "for possible criminal prosecution." Camp, R-Mich., did not specify which laws Lerner may have broken. Lerner´s lawyer, William W. Taylor III, has said she broke no laws. On Monday, Taylor emailed this response to Camp´s announcement: "One word: Ridiculous." Camp´s committee has been investigating

RAND study: By our estimate, 3.9 million

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

As the House prepares for several key votes on former Internal Revenue Service employee Lois G. Lerner and potential legal action, analysts say she and her attorney have mishandled their case by picking and choosing when they want to talk, and to whom they are willing to talk. Ms. Lerner faces a vote in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday that could begin the process of accusing her of contempt of Congress. The Ways and Means Committee announced that it will hold a vote Wednesday on whether to officially accuse Ms. Lerner of breaking the law by

A founding father of the conservative movement who is now a star among Tea Party activists is urging the GOP to choose a governor to duel Washington “insider” Hillary Clinton for the White House, saying that 2016 isn´t the best time for Sen. Ted Cruz to run. Often called the “funding father” of conservatism for pioneering direct mail fundraising, Richard A. Viguerie believes that the Texas senator is a “game changer” for the movement but that the best way to beat Clinton is with a candidate from outside the beltway. “I don´t think it would be best for the conservative movement for

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

My first published column was in a local paper opposing the Equal Rights Amendment for the same reasons that Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative lawyer, campaigned on. As ambiguously written, the ERA, would eliminate the men-only draft requirement, repeal protective laws like sexual assault and eliminate the tendency for mothers to obtain custody over their children in divorce cases. Ironically, one of the arguments that helped sink the amendment from ratification was the fear that single-sex bathrooms would no longer be permitted. In addition, opponents of the amendment also warned that it would lead to abortion on demand and same-sex marriages.

This morning I clicked on a link to a Red State website article concerning “The War on Women” and “Paycheck Equality” and got quite a surprise (the same thing happens when a Firefox user goes directly to the article). Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now! (shouldn’t they have said “Achtung! or “Verboten!” or something similar?). This website could not be displayed by Firefox because it is not
