Seven Reasons Why it´s a Photoshop
American Thinker, by Michael Harlin

I´m sure we´ve all seen by now the "photo op" of President Obama shooting skeet. If he´s shooting skeet then I´m Daffy Duck. Skeet [clay disks of bright colors] are thrown by a machine from two towers erected to the right and left of the shooter. (There are other set ups like ones used for "sporting clays" but that isn´t represented in the White House photo release.) Usually, the skeet is thrown about ten or more feet above the ground. The shooters are arranged in a semi-circle at various stations around the semi-circle. The "group" of shooters lines up

It´s not about whether this picture is fake or not...it´s about the President, and on that count, it´s safe to say that he is a complete fake. His whole presidency has been one big "PhotoShop".

If his white house handlers were willing to release a badly photoshopped birth certificate, why would they worry about accuracy in the photo?
He is immune to charges of fakery.

I never did trap shooting or skeet shooting, but immediately recognized the photo as questionable. He looks like he´s aiming at a target, with the gun level. And his stance says he has never shot a gun before. Every time I´ve seen pictures of someone using a shotgun, they are aiming the gun upward, not level.

After looking at this photo, I certainly give credence to the report that said that after just a very few minutes, he could not get out of there fast enough.

I believe it is an intentionally bad photoshop.
Obama and his posse WANT people challenging the authenticity of this photo.
Not only is it a distraction from Obama´s miserable performance and policies, bit it allows the Left to say "There they go again. Those crazy right wingers just won´t give Obama a break. They have to disagree with the President and challenge him on everything. They´re such racists."

No. Our tactical approach should be;
-Concede the photo is legitimate (even though that is not likely);
-Make fun of Obama´s obvious lack of shooting experience. Laugh at him, just like when he wore mom jeans to throw out a baseball like as girl at a game.
-RIDICULE HIM (per the Saul Alinsky playbook). We know he cannot stand to be ridiculed or criticized.

Aren´t skeet thrown into the air to shoot? He is "shooting" like something is standing in front of him. Possibly moochelle or perhaps a picture of W. He´s a total fake so this story is so perfect for him.

Reason #8: the wadding is beginning to appear from the barrel yet there is no evidence of recoil in the idiot´s body or stance.

Reason #9: His fore hand is way far out on the barrel and will burn the snot out of his fingers after more than 1 shot. Its as if he posed with a longer object or a Marine guards rifle then they cropped in a shotgun.

The smoke you made reference to in the photo comes for gas ports drilled in the barrel on both sides to prevent muzzle jump upward to give a shooter a faster return sight picture for the second shot if needed. Your remarks tell me you haven´t shot very often of any clay bird sports. This is popular now for over 10 years. But, it´s a fake picture. The gas is only ported out one side, not both.

The angle of the barrel is meaningless. He could be shooting trap, which can come out low, or sporting clays, some of which are even rolling on the ground. Even skeet has low crossing birds. None of it matters.

You´d be better off spending your time organizing for an electable senate candidate in the state where you live. Trying to find one who doesn´t say dumb things about rape would be a nice start.

While a posed photo seems like a small matter, I´ve got a very liberal brother who is an avid hunter. If nothing else gets his attention to BO´s fakery, this might. I´ve heard my brother discuss hunting trips & how the other hunters performed. He takes it seriously enough that he won´t drink while hunting or hunt with others who do. He also won´t hunt with people he doesn´t know well or ANYone who has little experience with fire arms - he knows that is dangerous. I also hope that he´s heard about BO´s proposed gun bans - because my lib brother DOES feel strongly about the right to bear arms & I don´t think he would continue to believe in a president who wants to take away gun rights. This might change a few libs minds.

The White House photo is for low info voters. They know that it will not fly for people who know about skeet (or other) shooting. It is simply fodder for an ignorant base.

The gun was not fired. The smoke is obviously added in. They didn´t add it in for the left side ports as it would have clouded the picture.
His hair color and the foliage suggest this was last year.
What´s with the dark glasses? I figure it was just to look badass.
I don´t have many guns for sport or recreation. Most of mine are for defense. Skeet and trap do sound fun. I might have to try it.

Let´s recap. On Aug. 4, obama played golf in afternoon and later he boarded Marine 1 for Camp David-----didn´t he take Reggie (baby) love with him that weekend? If so, it wasn´t skeet he was shooting/snorting or cavorting. The WH photoshopped says 10:19 PM recorded time. Oh well, guess he had huge stadium lights installed for this special occasion just as he had to purchase the two multi-million black buses for his speaking tour.

That 2nd puff of smoke going in the other direction is from the cigarette he tossed off just before taking the shot he never took.

I am not concerned in the least about this "photo-shoot" of the pResident. Nothing he says or does makes any sense, so nothing
his White House handlers pass out to the citizens has any meaning. As the disgraced Hillary Klintoon would say, "What difference does it make?" A waste of time. Anything to distract the citizens from the damage he is doing.

Yes, we know that obama isn´t going to take Joe Biden´s guns, Joe Biden is taking obama´s skeet guns or just a fall to test the public reaction.

IOW poltical game to fool the sheeple. I would be so ashamed if I had voted for the corrupt devilish-duo.

Is the "smoke" supposed to be shot spray or a faancy spraywater gun?.

Al Gore´s youngest daughter has gotten remarried under a historic tree in Santa Monica. Sarah Gore has a very casual outdoor service on Sunday morning outside a coffee shop with her famous father walking across a patch of grass that served as the makeshift aisle. Wearing a loose, off-white lace dress with bell sleeves, Sarah made her way towards her groom, realtor Patrick Maiani, who was waiting for her beside the outline of a heart in the shape of rose petals.The brief service was officiated by a female religious leader and attended by about a dozen invited guests.

As a young reporter, I once expressed shock at how routinely and reflexively government officials lied to the press. A savvy newspaper vet who overheard me just smiled and told me not to take it personally. “Why shouldn’t they lie to you?” the late, great Murray Kempton asked. “They lie to themselves all the time.” His observation came back to me as I read about President Obama’s trip to Asia. He’s going, the White House says, to tell our allies face to face that America is committed more than ever to their security and prosperity. In ordinary times, the trip and

WASHINGTON — Curt Clawson, a businessman who was little known months ago in Southwest Florida, won a contentious GOP primary Tuesday to fill the U.S. House seat left open by the scandalous downfall of Trey Radel.Clawson, 54, pitched himself as an outsider against more established candidates and was embraced by the tea party. He poured more than $2 million into television ads. In one, the former Purdue basketball player challenged President Barack Obama to a three-point contest. The Bonita Springs resident took about 38 percent of the vote in the Congressional District 19 race, besting several rivals, including state Sen.

IRS employees who had been disciplined for tax and conduct issues were nonetheless rewarded with monetary awards or time off, according to a watchdog report released Tuesday. The report by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration found that while for the most part the reward program for IRS workers complied with federal regulations, employees who had themselves failed to pay their federal taxes and had discipline problems were also rewarded. "While not prohibited, providing awards to employees who have been disciplined for failing to pay federal taxes appears to create a conflict with the IRS’s charge of ensuring the

It seems only yesterday, before the soothing elixir of “hope and change” was spoonfed to us by present-President Barack Obama, that Republicans could disagree with Democrats without being branded “teabaggers,” KKK-members, anarchists, Nazis, bomb throwers, arsonists, political terrorists or extremists. The unspeakable crime of conservatives? Their heartless desire to live their own lives and to be left alone by the bullying U.S. government. What has been the conservative outcry since disco was still a thing? Follow the Constitution, be fiscally responsible, and restore limited government.

SPRINGFIELD — As the General Assembly heads into its final month of session, House Speaker Michael Madigan said Tuesday that he doesn’t have enough votes lined up yet to extend the state’s income tax increase or raise the minimum wage. The speaker, talking to reporters the day he was easily elected to a fifth term as Illinois Democratic Party chairman, said voting to keep the personal income tax rate at 5 percent instead of letting it fall to 3.75 percent on Jan. 1 will be a “difficult roll call.” “Every person in the legislature is going to be called upon

How often have you heard a Democrat prattle on and on about how well Barack Obama has done with the economy, given the mess he inherited? Usually, it’s some version of, “Things are getting better, but the economy the President started with was so awful, so he’s done as well as anyone could expect.”When Ronald Reagan took over from Jimmy Carter in ’81, things were actually worse economically compared to when Obama took over from George W. Bush in ’08. Consider these three important comparisons of economic indicators, then and now: - Unemployment was at 10.8% versus 7.7% - Inflation (Consumer

Obama to free hundreds of drug

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama.
