Top Ten Problems with that
Skeet Shooting Picture

American Thinker, by Marion DS Dreyfus

Original Article

Posted By:DW626, 2/6/2013 5:09:06 AM

It was a picture dredged up to prove the assertion the President had made in January to the breezy effect that the President is indeed acquainted with firearms, since, as he stated (roughly paraphrased), We´ve often shot skeet when we´re at Camp David. It took a few days, where conservative media baited the press secretary Jay Carney, for proof, any proof, and where the Democrats either pooh-poohed the need for proof, since the President rarely turns out to have accuracy as his first arrow out of the quiver

Item #9 suggests that it might not even be obama in the pic, instead it´s possibly a body-double. Really? You mean there could be someone out there who would KNOWINGLY wear momjeans to lay his life on the line for the One?

I don´t know. The picture is probably real. He is probably not shooting skeet but rather shooting clay pigeons from a portable trap. At least he shot the gun at least one time.
Obviously he has no skill at shooting a shotgun. He is holding it like he never had one before.

Many of the many comments made about it just don´t hold water. And yes, I have shot both skeet and trap many times.

Give it a rest. So many of the so-called problems aren´t problems at all. Is it not enough that they´ve only been able to produce ONE photograph after a week of frantic searching?

The guy is not a shooter. He said something dumb. We already know that he is not trustworthy. Let´s move on...

The shotgun in the picture is a Browning Citori, over and under twelve guage. I know because it is the same gun I use at the range for skeet and also in the field for bird hunting. I can tell you that the way he has shouldered the gun in the picture, if he fired it any more than about twenty times with it mounted that way, he would have a sore bruised shoulder, especially since he is not wearing a padded shooting vest and the stock has not been customized to fit him.

Agree with #7. Photog snapped that picture at the millisecond when the smoke appeared as the rifle was fired. Amazing timing or there are many more pictures that were not released because they included Obama being helped off the skeet range holding a painfully bruised shoulder and cheek.
And Obama´s agonizing second act only has 47 more months to go. (groan)

One explanation for the delay between event and picture posting might be revealed in the poor quality audio from the wireless bug in the Valkyrie´s office.

It seems to indicate that they were waiting for a reply, which never came BTW, from Martha Stewart asking for her best recipe on the preparation of skeet. (JIC he actually got lucky and bagged one rather then having to purchase from the exotic game market) /ticsarc

I´ll bet he posed with the shotgun and the smoke was photoshopped later.

Why no video? Why are there not 50-60 different pictures?

SUNGLASSES? Was someone dumb enough to put the targets in the direction of the sun?

Fraud, fakery, just like everything else about this man.

If the picture was snapped at the moment of smoke ejecting from the barrel, his shoulder would already be in recoil from the blast. He is either the strongest man who ever lived, is capable of defying the laws of Physics, or the smoke was Photoshopped in after he was snapped merely holding the shotgun up against his cheek.

Anyone who has shot a 12 gauge knows the kick would push the shoulder back and possibly bruise the shoulder if held wrong. This picture shows he is totally unaware of the pain he is about to endure.

My guess is this was posed and the gun smoke was photoshopped. No way this is an actual shot. He would be on his arse.

The country is going to hell in a hand basket and we´re surmising that the Pretender might have staged this stupid picture.

This, my friends, is another smokescreen for the "low information" people of the correct viewpoint to stagger upon.

Our country is about to become czarist Russia, people! Obamacare is the law of the land! That´s more important than whether this photo was shopped for.

Let´s be more interested in Bengahzi, which is about to be swept; the administration coming after our 401ks; and/or an administration that bypasses congress by executive order and a congress who says, "ok" by way of passivity. Our taxes are about to skyrocket, the military is about to be axed, and the people being appointed to positions of power are anti-american.

This picture is a "red" herring.

To start with I´m not a skeet or trap shooter although I have shot skeet. Why the muzzle brake on only the upper barrel of the shotgun? Does seem like a bit much smoke. As for shooting level, that would indicate, to me, that he was following the bird down to the ground and did not shoot it when most others would already have fired. I don´t know how much recoil would show if he were firing a light target load, even from a 12 ga. Overall, especially knowing the subject, I´d vote for fake. I´d also like to know his score if he ever did shoot skeet - 0 just like his name? Maybe he thinks it´s golf and low score is good.

I downloaded the original picture from the White House Flickr account, and here is selected EXIF information from it:

Image: 4096 pixels wide by 2730 high

Camera: Canon EOS 5D Mark III

Resolution: 240 pixels per inch

File date and time: 2013:2:1 17:11:38

Date and time of original data generation: 2012:8:4 19:19:21 (that is, photo was taken at 7:19 PM on August 4, 2012)

Shutter speed: 1/320 second at F4

Software: Adobe Photoshop CS6 (Macintosh)

In other words, the photo was at least uploaded into Photoshop in preparation for release. Was Photoshop used to alter it, also?

August 4 is Obama´s birthday. He spent his birthday playing golf and shooting skeet? Where were Michelle and the kids?

More info about this photo: If you view the original on your computer, where it can be enlarged to full size, you will see that the picture was snapped just at the moment of discharge, and the shotgun is blurred, meaning it is recoiling, but the recoil has not yet been transmitted to 0´s body (except for the right forearm). I am suspicious of that smoke, though.

Modern professional SLR´s can be set to shoot multiple frames/sec. And then it´s a matter of choice which frame is published.

The EXIF data published above does not show the camera set for high-speed shooting.

Looks like the photog was very lucky or Photoshop wins again.

#24: Jackpot! Besides the poor shooting position and a bruise on the shoulder, the thing that annoys me the most is the smoke.

I am a paper puncher not a skeet shooter so I can not say for sure on shotgun shells. However, nothing I shoot makes smoke.

I believe he posed for the picture and never fired the shotgun. Smoke was added so most would think he actually fired.

Perhaps the White House looked up the date when Obama was at Camp David, then photoshopped the photo and dated it for that date. They have been known to fake stuff (the birth certificate).

Hard to believe he spent his birthday shooting skeet.

I don´t care if it is real or fake, but take a look at that shotgun...is the government providing these for the play time shooting? If so, I would guess this to be about a $4-5000.00 piece of hardware. Looks like the real spendy stuff the real rich guys I see at the range using. Who says we don´t have any money. Ha.

Why the two trails of smoke going in different directions starting from different points? I´m a but new to the shooting sports only about 48 years. In the spirit of full disclosure darned little of my experience has been shotgun shooting, mostly rifle and pistol. I´d have that barrel checked for a leak about 4in shy of the business end. He posed with a shotgun, may have shot it, may have shot it well, but this wasn´t a photo of that happening.

He appears to be aiming with one eye. That is not the way you hold on a target with a shotgun. Both eyes remain open and focused on the target.

Calling a Spade a ´Garden Implement´

Early on in the Genesis chapter of the Bible much is made of Adam giving names to all living creatures. Like everything about the Bible, the meaning of this event is subject to many interpretations, the most often given is that it signals man’s dominion over the other creatures of the earth. I don’t dispute that reading, but to me, the naming description signifies that there can be no real communication among people unless the names we use mean the same thing to all of us. A spade certainly is a garden implement, but if you are in the gardening

The “I’m shocked, shocked” line from Casablanca is too much a cliché to carry any -- umm -- shock value, but surely it fits Putin’s actions against Ukraine. But the civilized world, mainly the Anglosphere, has long shown its utter indifference to human life by ignoring mass killings on a scale surpassed only by the Nazis and the Communists in the last century. More than a hundred thousand in Syria and still going on; perhaps a million or more in North Korea; millions in Africa, uncounted tens of thousands or more in Iran.

This week President Obama, following a long string of bloopers that the media underplays or ignores, spelled respect "R-S-P-E-C-T´". It was a fitting blunder in a week in which he and America´s left wing took a series of pratfalls.To start off, Medea Benjamin, master media manipulator and water carrier for countless leftist tyrants, winged into Cairo apparently to lend her inestimable support to the Moslem Brotherhood.

In the subsequent five years, the situation has only worsened, despite the film production incentive program California enacted in 2009, which provides for $100 million a year in tax credits for what’s usually 20% of production costs. That’s significantly smaller than programs offered by other

Kudos to Don Lemon, the CNN journalist, for admitting what conservatives have maintained ever since Barack Obama became president with unquestioning media support and suppression of any conservatism as racist: (This is the totality of the text, video is enclosed.)

Nothing better depicted Obama´s illegal tampering with the clear words of ObamaCare -- his announcement this week that he was delaying the employer mandate for medium-sized companies -- than Michael Ramirez´ brilliant cartoon showing the law as a blank page in which Obama had continually changed its words and meaning. Along similar lines, Charles Krauthammer observes: But generally speaking you get past the next election by changing your policies, by announcing new initiatives, but not by wantonly changing the law lawlessly. This is stuff you do in a banana republic. It´s as if the law is simply a blackboard on which Obama

In the business world, a diligent board of directors would have long ago fired CEO Obama. Sometimes it takes only a year of less than expected earnings to result in the termination of a corporate CEO. A couple of underperforming years and a few reasons more, and a CEO would have his bags packed and stowed underneath his buck-stopping desk. A long list of problems -- especially one suggesting even a hint of fraud -- that fails to generate a satisfactory board response would stir shareholders and lenders to demand the resignation of not only the CEO and other key employees,

This week the big story was the tag end of the old JournoList gang trying to spin gold out of the dross of the Congressional Budget Report. The CBO report projected that by 2021 under ObamaCare more than 2 million full-time workers will find it financially advisable to quit work entirely or switch to part-time jobs in order to get more subsidies for healthcare insurance. To most of us who studied real economics or just paid attention to human nature, subsidizing indolence means you´ll get more of it.

This week to an ever-diminishing audience President Obama outlined a pedestrian plan for the remainder of this year, amidst the usual hornswoggle of invited guests in the gallery and dubious daytime TV style anecdotal stories of their lives. More popular than ever is the wish that we could return to State of the Union messages being delivered on paper to Congress. In the meantime my friend Ignatz, the genius Sultan Knish (Daniel Greenfield) and even Vladimir Putin offered up some sage observations which underscore the rot at the heart of the administration and his party and the likely consequences of their

Apart from me, there is only one other non-Democrat I know of in my immediate D.C. neighborhood. Let´s call him John Doe, because he´s petrified that he´ll be the next target of this extra-constitutional gang from Chicago and wouldn´t want to see his name made public. I hadn´t seen him around for a while, but yesterday afternoon there was a knock on the back door. No one ever uses it so I figured it was the gas meter reader, but no, it was John who scurried in, using the cover of the large fig tree branches out of fear he might

Barack Obama´s Constant State
of Cognitive Dissonance

Contradicting the faultless, albeit far-fetched image he has of himself, Barack Obama is a man harassed by truth. That´s why, judging from his inability to accept personal responsibility, Barack Obama must be living in a constant state of agitated cognitive dissonance. The late Leon Festinger is the social psychologist who proposed the theory of cognitive dissonance. According to Festinger, until the person suffering with perceptual disharmony can find a way to justify wrong actions and decisions, it´s impossible to achieve a calm mental state, especially when those wrong actions and decisions challenge the way the cognitively dissonant individual sees himself.

My relationship with Joe evokes the Jane Austen line, "For what do we live, but to make sport for our neighbours, and laugh at them in our turn?" Joe is an 82-year-old black man, a very successful retired computer engineer. He owns homes in the most affluent areas of this city, and until recently he tooled around the southeastern U.S. in his Cessna. Joe is a forceful man who has assumed the role of a leader among our common acquaintance. Joe is obsessed with white racism, and because he is black, people acquiesce to him in ways they would not for

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare. That 7 million figure looked totally unreachable. So Sebelius does what every other member of the Obama administration does when confronted with inconvenient facts. She lied. In a Tuesday appearance on HuffPost Live to discuss outreach to African American communities,

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

The North Carolina State Board of Elections has found thousands of instances of voter fraud in the state, thanks to a 28-state crosscheck of voter rolls. Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud. 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election. 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election. 155,692 voters

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, criticized last year by a Vatican official for her support of abortion, received a rosary Tuesday from President Obama that was blessed by Pope Francis. Mrs. Pelosi told reporters of the president’s gift after having lunch with Mr. Obama at the White House. The president met with the pope last week at the Vatican. “I was happy to receive a rosary blessed by Pope Francis,” she said. “It means a great deal to me.” Last year, a Vatican official in Rome said that Mrs. Pelosi should be denied communion. “This is a person who obstinately,

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is "looking" at banning the sale of tobacco at military installations. According to one military publication, Hagel appears to support it. "As the Navy considers banning tobacco sales on all bases and ships, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel gave a strong endorsement of the review Monday, and suggested that he would be in favor of a ban," reports Stars and Stripes. “I don’t know if there’s anybody in America who still thinks that tobacco is good for you,” Stars and Stripes quotes Hagel as saying. “We don’t allow smoking in any of our government buildings.

Atlanta – Vegetarians may have a lower BMI and drink alcohol sparingly, but vegetarian diets are tied to generally poorer health, poorer quality of life and a higher need for health care than their meat-eating counterparts. A new study from the Medical University of Graz in Austria finds that vegetarians are more physically active, drink less alcohol and smoke less tobacco than those who consume meat in their diets. Vegetarians also have a higher socioeconomic status and a lower body mass index. But the vegetarian diet — characterized by a low consumption of saturated fats and cholesterol that includes increased intake

Senate majority leader Harry Reid has a whole page on his official Senate.gov website devoted to revealing "THE FACTS ABOUT THE KOCH BROTHERS." One of the alleged facts promoted on Reid´s website is that the Kochs do not pay any corporate taxes: “They are known for bankrolling conservative, Libertarian and Tea Party causes and became poster boys for corporate tax reform last year when an Obama Administration official suggested Koch is organized as an S Corp. and so pays no corporate level taxes.” The claim that the Koch brothers don´t pay corporate income taxes was first made by former White House official

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and
