Barack Obama, in an attempt to appear sympathetic to gun owners´ concerns as he pursues a gun-banning agenda in the wake of the Sandy Hook school shooting, recently bragged that he goes skeet shooting at Camp David “all the time.” Responding to the blowback from skeptics who doubted Obama was telling the unvarnished truth (Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) challenged Obama to a skeet shooting contest), the White House not only released a photo of Obama shooting skeet, but White House press secretary Jay Carney also tried to water down Obama’s statement. Carney claimed Obama had “never pretended to or
I was just reading a story about a high school freshman in Florence Az. who was suspended for having a picture of a gun as his desktop background. Wonder what would happen if the picture was of obama holding a gun ´shooting´ skeet.
"Obama´s comments about shooting had been entirely unplanned"
That´s his biggest problem. If it isn´t preloaded into the teleprompter, president momjeans will accidentally inject his inborn stupidity into every statement he makes. Then he must get Carney to talk his way out of it.
I don´t believe the incompetent sissy ever picks up anything more lethal than a golf club. There is too much chance he will hurt himself with it.
Obama is not going to gain any popularity with gun owners and it doesn´t matter how many silly pictures the WH releases of him in his dork clothes awkwardly holding one. We are already well aware of liberal views on our 2nd Amendment rights. #8 is right - a liberal Supreme Court could very well try to eliminate private gun ownership. That is exactly why the 2nd Amendment exists.
#11 I agree. The democrats want to take everything away from the average American citizen...your money earned from earnings, wages, and investments. Your pensions, 401K, and savings are under siege along with your healthcare. The bad news is they use what they take for pandering, bribes, and political playoffs. Highway Robbery!
Even Joseph Goebbels would be embarrassed by this little twerp, Carney. obama may have gotten away with these rediculous lies when he was a community organizer (whatever in hell that is) lecturing to the dumbest people on planet Earth, but he seems to believe EVERYONE is that stupid.
I guess I shouldn´t question what a community organizer is, the Useless Media thought was a fantastic qualification to be the President of the United States.
OK students, one more time: Preamble to the bill of Rights. "The conventions of a number of the States having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added; And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best insure the beneficient ends of its institution." Read it again, Federal Government has no say so when it comes to the Bill of Rights.

Was there ever a more appropriately named press secretary? Here´s the definition of "carney" from the dictionary: "carny or carney 1 (´k??n?) — vb, -nies , -nying , -nied , -neys , -neying , -neyed. Informal ( Brit ) to coax or cajole or act in a wheedling manner".
I now believe (without a doubt) that Obammy does this stuff deliberately to drive us on the right crazy. It´s his idea of fun. "Hey, Moochell, watch them go nuts when I say I shoot a gun! Ha, Ha. Too funny." Next week he´ll tell us he plays football and was the star quarterback at Hawaii High.
Seriously, if he isn´t doing it with malice a forethought then he is as crazy as Dr. Strangelove and we are in more trouble than we realize.
If Obama was smart he´d stick to bowling and baseball. Give Obama a break. The only things remotely American he has ever done are play golf and shoot hoops. I love that Carney didn´t know the difference between skeet and trap shooting. Neither would Obama.
Obama is a liar. Carney is a liar. Obama is a punk smart-a**. Carney is a punk smart-a**. Obama is a lefty liberal creep. Carney is a lefty liberal creep. Obama reads from a teleprompter. Carney reads from the Lefty talking points. Obama is a foreign exchange student with fake birth certificate, fake transcripts, lost law license, and a fake skeet shooting photo shopped picture. Carney is a lap-dog rump-swab who will say anything and tell lies to protect his messiah.
Well, I for one, know exactly what Obozo is shooting. It´s another word that starts with the letter ´S´ and it isn´t skeet.
And usually skeet enthusiasts speak of ´shooting a round of skeet´. Which is 100 shots. That´s 4 boxes of shotgun shells. I wish someone would ask Carney or even Obozo how many shots make up a round of skeet.
Two things: Why did McAffee say I was going to a prohibited site on Breitbart? Also, when you have to tell people things like, ".. and that´s the truth," you know much of what they´ve said to that point was lies. I love how Dana Perino described Carney, "Looks like his shoes are too tight."
The WH released a picture of Obama improperly holding and firing a shotgun. What he was shooting at is anybody ´s guess. I´d bet the noise scared him. The picture didn´t show him dropping the shotgun and running in terror.
Let´s not kid ourselves. The left´s current attempt to ban the so-called assault rifles and high-capacity magazines has a hidden purpose - start to limit the citizenry´s ability to rise up against its government and military. You think this is a stretch? Guess again.
MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry evidently exists to say ridiculous things. The same radical who declared that all children belong to the state said Sunday that “Obamacare” is the new “n-word.” (Video) “Good morning, I’m Melissa Harris-Perry. I want to talk today about a controversial word,” the Tulane professor began Sunday’s show. “It’s a word that has been with us for years. And like it or not, it’s indelibly printed in the pages of American history. A word that was originally intended as a derogatory term, meant to shame, and divide, and demean. The word was conceived of by a group of
The world´s leading technology companies have united to demand sweeping changes to US surveillance laws, urging an international ban on bulk collection of data to help preserve the public´s “trust in the internet”. In their most concerted response yet to disclosures by the National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden, Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Yahoo, LinkedIn, Twitter and AOL have published an open letter to Barack Obama and Congress on Monday, throwing their weight behind radical reforms already proposed by Washington politicians. “The balance in many countries has tipped too far in favour of the state and away from the rights of
Rep. Steve Stockman, a conservative firebrand who has been dogged by ethical questions and campaign debt, withdrew as a candidate for re-election Monday and instead filed as a Republican challenger to U.S. Sen. John Cornyn. The filing gives Cornyn the Tea Party challenge in the Texas Republican primary that he long sought to avoid in a state where the GOP electorate has moved increasingly to the right. Stockman has prided himself on being one of the most conservative members of Congress. Soon after arriving, he refused to suport Rep. John Boehner for Speaker of the House, voting only “present.” He
Power Abuse: Emboldened by its shakedown of mortgage lenders, the administration is now accusing car lenders of racism. On what grounds? It refuses to say, raising suspicion of another witch hunt. Some of the nation´s largest auto lenders, including Ally Bank, are now under federal investigation for allegedly discriminating against black and Latino borrowers — a deplorable crime, if true. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is heading the new crusade with help from the Justice Department. It claims it has "statistical evidence" showing car lenders and dealers marking up loan prices for minorities vs. whites.
DETROIT- The U.S. government ended up losing $10.5 billion on the General Motors bailout, but it says the alternative would have been far worse. The Treasury Department sold its final shares of the Detroit auto giant on Monday, recovering $39 billion of the $49.5 billion it spent to save the dying automaker at the height of the financial crisis five years ago. Without the bailout, the country would have lost more than a million jobs, and the economy could have slipped from recession into a depression, Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew said on a conference call with reporters. Now, the American
LOS ANGELES— Eleanor Parker, who was nominated for Academy Awards three times for her portrayals of strong-willed women and played a scheming baroness in "The Sound of Music," has died at 91. Family friend Richard Gale said Parker died Monday morning due to complications from pneumonia. "She passed away peacefully, surrounded by her children at a medical facility near her home in Palm Springs," Gale added. Parker was nominated for Oscars in 1950, 1951 and 1955, but then saw her career begin to wane in the early 1960s. Her last memorable role came in 1965´s "The Sound of Music," in which
“I think I just became the first president to ever publicly mention Area 51,” President Barack Obama joked at Sunday night’s Kennedy Center Honors event at The White House. The line got a big laugh from the audience in attendance, but he may have been telling the truth. This year’s honorees included Carlos Santana, Herbie Hancock, and Billy Joel. But it was during his remarks about actress Shirley MacLaine, who wrote about her own UFO sightings in her memoir Sage-ing While Age-ing that the president brought up the top secret military base in southern Nevada. “Now, when you first become
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
