Obama - The Skeet Shooter

President Obama recently told the New Republic
magazine, "Up at Camp David, we do skeet shooting
all the time."
Today, after some suggested the
president's claim might not be true, the New Republic
tweeted a picture supposedly proving that Obama has
gone skeet shooting:



Ooooops!
I guess useing a 9 iron doesn't count.
The New Republic tweet has since been removed.
Dan Rather could have done a better job
with photoshop.

Thats great and all...too bad the White House never hosted that "photo" or released it...

Obama probably bangs Michelle a lot at Camp David...but we're not asking for photographic proof of that either.

Stop looking at the shiny coins at the bottom of the fountain and try worrying about a real problem.

Obama is far from being that shiney coin in the fountain and he is the real problem. If bullshit could walk this white house would be an Olympic runner

Exactly...and thats why its so retarded for people to go to such lengths to MAKE UP a story (in this case, a photo).

The great thing about the interwebs is that you toss out something, it goes viral is 5 seconds and the "oops" retraction that happens 3 hours later never sees the light of day.

That's because he has never done any skeet shooting.

Why would he ruin a chance for a nice getaway weekend

The photo and posting at New Republic is immaterial.
Obama should not have made up a story about
skeet shooting. When I read that he said that
the other day, I about split a gut laughing.
Most people expect fabrications like that from
Biden but now that Obama is doing to, it just
proves these clowns are morons.

I find the assertion questionable as well. But unless you follow the dude everywhere, do you really know? Maybe he does. Maybe he doesn't. I'd hate to see everyone latch onto this like a pitbull and then a real photo surfaces of him doing it. Maybe Donald Trump can help out?

It's more likely Obama could turn over a REAL birth certificate than a REAL picture of him skeet shooting.

These bastards know no end to the lies they spew.

You missed the point. The picture was meant to be a comical jab at the lie. The story was meant to be truthful rhetoric.

But of course, you knew that.

White House fails again.

But this "lie" is LAME! Why do it? If it's a lie at all. It just stinks of desperate straw grabbing: "Let's get all tied up on whether or not the President skeet shoots at Camp David..." "Ooo oooo...and let's make it even funnier by making...or asking to have made...or finding...a "picture" of the President holding a gun."

No no...if it was meant to be comical, then they would have kept it up. They pulled it because they know they got duped....

Who created the story that the POTUS Skeet shoots? The White House or the media?

The OP states...President Obama recently told the New Republic magazine, "Up at Camp David, we do skeet shooting
all the time."

If this is true, then no one is duped. The two pictures are meant to be comical. If you don't see the humor, you need to relax. If the POTUS never said this, and the entire thing was made up by the media, it's still funny as hell. You really take things way to seriously.

The "story" is what it is. The photo moves it to a different level. Yea. I see the "humor" in it. It's still lame. I spotted it a chop right away....especially if the President shoots with this right hand on the trigger. I'm left handed and thats how I shoot.

At any rate, this is gonna go one of two ways, either he does or he doesn't. And either way, someone is gonna look like a fool for somehow getting this to page 1 without all the info.
