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.

$10 says he heard the Secret Service detail out there, wandered out, and said, "Hey guys, can I try that?" ... and the response was, well, muted. "Uh... sure, Mr. President... now here´s all you have to do..."

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.

As his wife admitted, he no like shooting so it´s probably staged sometime in the summer unless they are so conceited they did a blue screen shot and photoshopped in the background and the smoke. The shadows seems all wrong...

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.

Sen. John McCain is the least popular senator in the country of those surveyed by Public Policy Polling, with low marks from members of his own party, independents and Democrats. Just 30 percent of Arizona voters approve of the job the Republican senator is doing, while 54 percent disapprove, according to a PPP release Thursday. That is the worst of any senator’s polling in the nation that PPP has found.

He was first elected to the Senate in 1978. Obama’s choice of the 72-year-old Baucus to be ambassador to China must be confirmed by the Senate.

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

Fox News, by Staff    Original Article

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

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'
