O-Blam!-a backfire
New York Post, by Carl Campanile

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/3/2013 5:14:36 AM

He’s full of skeet! Gun owners lampooned President Obama as Elmer Fudd yesterday after the White House released a photo — in the middle of a fierce national firearms debate — of the commander-in-chief shooting clay targets at Camp David over the summer. While the president’s shooting skills were being mocked, his own gun-control allies privately fretted that Obama risked being ridiculed as a phony for suddenly trying to portray himself as a friend of sportsmen and hunters. Or, conversely, that he was glorifying the use of guns. The photo was taken last Aug. 4, on Obama’s 51st birthday.

I know pretty much nothing about guns but in the pic they released there doesn´t seem to be any sign of recoil as the shot goes off.Why would somebody be shooting at a skeet at ground level?

It should be noted, once again, that the Second Amendment has nothing to do with skeet shooting or hunting.

Mounted to shoulder as in picture will bruise clavicle terribly. Shot gun is not aimed down barrel as a rifle. That´s why drop (downward slant) of stock differs between rifle and shotgun.

Shoots like he throws. Sorry, I was going to say like a girl but girl shooters do it right. Shoots like a klutz.

The only thing dumber than Obama´s girl-stance with that rifle is the White House´s warning to not photoshop their photoshopped picture. Apparently they never heard of the first amendment to our constitution. Maybe that´s what Obama was aiming at in their picture off-camera.

We don´t know what he was aiming at.

We don´t know when the photo was taken.

We don´t know who is in the photo, really.

We don´t know if the photo was altered.

But whoever it is, if he held the gun like that, it was the FIRST time he ever pulled the trigger. Nobody does that twice. It hurts too much.

Will someone please tell him that proper way to shoot skeet is to place the bootplate loosely on the bridge of his nose? That way-you can aim with both eyes.

Just trying to be helpful.

Who can believe anything this administration releases? Obama is a liar that puts Bill Clinton to shame. Honesty and truth are not in their vocabulary.
When and where was the picture taken, what was he shooting at, did he fire more that one shot, was it choreographed, why was the picture taken???...

Obama is a creation, marketed by the media, a
"brand" sold to the public by people who want to take all the spoils, leaving America in ruin. Nothing about him is as it appears. Everything is done to promote "the agenda" and fits the narrative.

So when the WH releases a photo of Obama skeet shooting, who would believe it (except the 60% American sheeple)?

If he was really shooting at a clay pigeon the gun would be aimed up not straight out. Looks to me like he´s shooting at a target. If it´s really him. My hubby questions the plume of smoke coming out of the side of the barrel. That shouldn´t be there.

#13, that´s what I was thinking. The only reason I can imagine for that side gas vent is to reduce the kick so the first sissy doesn´t break his shoulder.

That side venting would reduce the range of the shot to about 3 1/2 feet or about the distance these commies think past their collective noses.

#4, you do aim down the barrel of a shot gun if you want to hit anything.

Check out the attempt by Obama & Production Co. to paint the 2nd amendment as a sports issue or hunting issue, neither of which it is:

The Second Amendment has nothing to do with skeet shooting.”

The 2nd Amendment is ONLY about protecting the people from exactly the kind of over-reaching power-hungry government Obama´s Administration is making America into.

Let´s not let the Left define what the 2nd amendment is about. The photo would be laughable were it not for the fact that too many Americans will construe it to mean that the amendment is about sports and not government tyranny.

The notices warn against ANYONE ELSE photoshoping the picture, but no codicil as to the WH photoshoping it BEFORE its ´timely´ release.

The wife pointed out his gray hair, back in August of 2012 his hair color was shown much DARKER (Election time ya know!), more recently he has been allowed to ´gray´ (more ´Statesman-like´ ya know!).
As pointed out by other posters: A shotgun held high on the shoulder will leave a hurtful, powerful bruise that will tAKE A LONG TIME TO HEAL. FURTHER, Holding a shotgun next to the cheek to sight down the barrel will possibly cause a ´punch´ to the jaw that could leave a hell of a bruise on one´s face; potentially causing a tooth to be broken. Also holding a shotgun by/or on the barrel, and not on the fore grip, when shooting multiple shots at the clays will create a burn that will hurt for some time.
The picture of Barry was posed, and the discharge was added, IMHO mostly because modern smokeless powders do not leave a plume as shown in the photo, after one shot.
Looks like the WH was being only reactive to public opinion. The people who released it, passed the photo for Lo-Fo public; had no idea as to what an individual would look like while shooting skeet.
Another lame,hurry-up job to cover Barry´s gimlet Arse.

What shows arrogance and dislike for the gun owners is the mocking words that the WH Plume used when he released the photo, calling the "Would be" skeptics... skeeters.

We all know that BO wants to disarm the U.S. citizens and trying to appear to be "just like us" is how he´s going to try to fake-out the gun owners. Problem is, the gun owners know what BO is trying to do, and they don´t trust him. Nor should they.

#25 is correct. Obie is holding a rifle which of course are not used for shooting skeet. Only the imagery and fakeness of Obie himself as shown in the photo would fool the sheep...again as #9 notes very astutely.

Of course no video or score.

Amazing shot. I mean camera shot. Precisely as the shot left the barrel and before the recoil. Amazing, and with only one take. Actually I think he was shooting (if this is even real) at a cardboard cutout of Rush Limbaugh.

I have been laughing, a thing I have not done much of since Nov. 6, 2012. This is so ludicrous. Do they really think we are that stupid, or are they making fun...what is going on they want to hide while we are mocking this photo? And hey, now they think they can ignore the First Amendment, too.

No recoil, wrong sighting, wrong gun, wrong posture, wrong smoke pattern. If I shot a gun in this posture, I would be on my butt on the ground, not standing there like a statute.

But what a HOOT. Thanks, White House for the cometic relief.

The photo is odd. When firing a shotgun, you use what is called a sighting plane (or plain) where you are using the bead sight on the front of the barrel. In the photo, his left thumb is blocking his view, and he is about two inches below the proper position. (depending on the structureof one´s cheeks, it is necessary for some people to pad the stock area to sight properly. In addition, the fingers on his right hand, on the forearm of the gun, are blocking his view.
What the photo represents to me, at minimum, is a shooter who has never fired a shotgun before. A girlie man.

Thanks for that last one, #6. Cracked me up... probably more than today´s comics will.

Something about it looks strange for a shotgun. Could that be an antique rifle instead of a shotgun?

Considering the way the birth-certificate matter was treated (with the press testily defending Obama when the first document he produced wasn´t even the right format!), do you suppose they´ll call the same play this time? I don´t imagine any of the MSM will put any resources to critical analysis of the photo (or even given any time or space to competent -- and independent -- photo analysts).

Just what would they be worried the photo would be photoshopped as, altered to, after the release? It looks just fine the way it is and says so much; wouldn´t change a thing. It´s another feather in the hat of potemkin village.

Why would conservatives make an issue of photoshopping Obama´s head over someone else firing the weapon in this picture? It might hold water if the stance and technique were correct but they are not so what difference does it make?
If the libs were going to paste bamsters picture over someone else firing, the least they could have done was henched it to someone who knew what they were doing.

A friend on FB posted that the AP published that Obama spent Aug 4, 2012 (his birthday) on the golf course before taking a helo to Camp David for a "quiet evening with his family off the campaign trail."

So when did he fit this round of skeet in?
And I never noticed him favoring his arm as he surely would have had he ever really fired a gun as shown in this photo...

He for sure wasn´t shooting skeet, unless they were dangling a motionless one for him to aim at. I think there was a copy of the Constitution in front of him. Would probably give him immense satisfaction.

Even their own commies must now know that they jumped the shark. But his narcissism will not withstand the fun. Should be interesting.

He, one man child, may be laughing at us, but there are millions upon millions laughing at him in the US alone. Add in the rest of the world and there are billions laughing at him. Just imagine how that gets under his thin skin. Alinsky was right - ridicule is the best weapon. I hope that zippy reads this thread.

Obama and the Ploofter are using this to belittle and mock Americans.

Prior to Obama, I have never seen the President of the United States stoop to derisive name-calling toward any segment of the population. Conflating the terms ´skeeters´ with ´birthers´ is derisive and mocking - and quite intentional (Aliksky tactic).

With the coronation of Obama, civility´s slide has accelerated dramatically. whereas Bush followed in the mold of Washington, who proclaimed with his entire life story that the most important part of leadership is setting an example, Obama is following in the mold of the kings and emperors of old, as well as Stalin and Chavez and Kim Jung Il.

Well, if Americans respond to mocking, then lets give the skinny, poofter with a shotgun a good dose!

Magna porting a shotgun provides approximately the same action/benefit as the "Outlawed/Deadly" flash suppressors do on an "assault weapon"...in fact their presence is what MAKES them an "assault weapon" as opposed to just another "sporting" rifle.

We read every day that some child is expelled for
bringing a photo or drawing of a gun to school.
Will they now be expelled If they bring a photo
of Barry and his blazing Blunderbuss ??
# 60 It´s reported that Barry usually spends between
five and six hours on the golf course.
Reuters reported that on August 4 ,
he played in " hot , muggy weather conditions ".
They also reported that he planned
to spend a quiet evening at Camp David.
It seems illogical, knowing Barry´s level of physical stamina and self indulgence , that after spending 6 hours
on a hot and muggy golf course,
he´s going to race back to Camp David
and suddenly engage in an activity he despises.
More likely he got a massage and then relaxed in the hot tub with Reggie Love and judging from his stomach pooch ,
they also drank a lot of beer.

Modern shells use smokeless powder. Judging from the heavy smoke, the ammo evidently was pretty old or more likely simply blanks.

The most compelling argument for the pic being a phony or fraud, is what has been pointed out already about the precise timing of the photo capture of the smoke exit, before the slightest reaction to a non-existent recoil. Which in itself eliminates the pic as possibly originating from a video.

Shotguns haven´t emitted smoke like that since the invention of smokeless powder.

Also, the porting is done in a V shape and there should be smoke on the left side of the barrel as well, which we do not see. The lower barrel is ported the same as the top and should exhibit a V pattern, IF YOU COULD SEE IT. Not like this stupid smoke in the picture.

THE most important point is that the 2nd Amendment is in NO WAY related to hunting or sport shooting.

The smoke coming from the side of the barrel indicates a ported barrel, used to reduce recoil. The stance and head and shoulder positions are fair/poor, clearly someone that has never done this much or maybe ever before.

I, too, question the smoke quantity, suspect a blank round. No recoil evident and it should have quite a bit by the time the gases are exiting the muzzle.

It IS a shotgun,not a rifle, an over-under double barrel, of the type commonly used for this sport. I´ll bet $100 he could not hit even 8 of the shots on a 25 "bird" round of skeet.

i believe the porting on this gun is a row of ports several inches long. being so, any smoke should be a wide band not what appears to be a single point source and not so wispy. If someone can identify the model shotgun i would think SOMEONE would be able to reproduce this picture and compare the flash signature. I agree, that is quite a bit of smoke...

My first thought when I saw this picture was this. If he held the gun the way he is in the picture, and actually pulled the trigger (and the gun was actually loaded with blanks or with bullets), he would have a mouth full of broken teeth. Notice how his cheek is pushed up against the gun, and actually bulging over the gun. Between that and a broken, or terribly bruised collar bone from firing a gun pressed against his collar bone, he would have been a mess. Staged, recently and obviously photoshopped by the faker in chief, and his not so very talented staff!

Advice to Democrats: Don´t say ´recovery´
Associated Press, by David Espo    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/18/2014 10:15:20 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON - Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion that the Obama administration has had six years to get the economy moving and its policies haven´t worked. Coincidentally or not,

Iran Gets an Unlikely Visitor, an American

President Obama has warned that Iran is not open for business, even as the United States has loosened some of its punishing economic sanctions as part of an interim nuclear pact. Yet, on Tuesday morning, Iran had an unlikely visitor: a plane, owned by the Bank of Utah, a community bank in Ogden that has 13 branches throughout the state. Bearing a small American flag on its tail, the aircraft was parked in a highly visible section of Mehrabad Airport in Tehran. But from there, the story surrounding the plane, and why it was in Iran — where all but a few

Saying they can no longer ignore the rising prices of health care, some of the most influential medical groups in the nation are recommending that doctors weigh the costs, not just the effectiveness of treatments, as they make decisions about patient care. The shift, little noticed outside the medical establishment but already controversial inside it, suggests that doctors are starting to redefine their roles, from being concerned exclusively about individual patients to exerting influence on how health care dollars are spent. “We understand that we doctors should be and are stewards of the larger society as well as of the patient in

Hillary Clinton may end up deciding she wants to spend the 935 days until election 2016 making corporate speeches and spoiling her grandchild. Recent events have exposed weaknesses in Clinton’s supposedly impregnable armor, gaps through which a Democratic or Republican challenger could damage, perhaps even defeat her. The bad headlines to which she has been subjected are enough to make anyone—anyone who isn’t a Clinton—think twice about running for president. Look at the polls. This week’s Fox News poll has Clinton’s favorable rating at its lowest point in six years. She is at 49 percent favorable, 45 percent unfavorable—similar to her

President Barack Obama used his Thursday press conference to diagnose Republicans as fear-mongering, spiteful, obstinate, petulant and obstructive, as he again declared mission-accomplished in his effort to put the nation’s health-care under government control. “I recognize that their party is going through the stages of grief — anger and denial and all that stuff — and we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama told reporters, where he announced that his Obamacare network had claimed 8 million subscribers. Obama coupled his passive-voice diatribe with his more-in-sorrow-than-anger promise that he “would much prefer a constructive conversation with the Republicans about how do we get some

The captain of a ferry that sank off the coast of South Korea Wednesday, leaving nearly 300 people missing, is under investigation as a possible criminal and was one of the first people to escape the doomed vessel, Coast Guard officials said. Lee Joon-seok, 69, left the ferry on a lifeboat 32 minutes after reporting an accident, officials said. The captain appeared on Korean television today, his face covered by a gray hoodie. “I am really sorry and deeply ashamed,” he said, as he was being questioned at the Mokpo Coast Guard Office.

Soon after the tea party era began in Congress in 2011, President Obama and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan each released their budgets, proposing how much the government should tax and spend over the rest of the decade. Three years into that budget showdown, Mr. Ryan and his Republican colleagues are winning. Government spending has slowed, and Mr. Obama’s plans for higher taxes and higher spending have fallen by the wayside. “The discretionary spending has in fact been driven by Republicans post-2010 clamping down,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office who is now president of the

Ezra Klein, in his new capacity as one of the impresarios behind Vox, has written a pair of attention-grabbing posts — here, and then here — defending the proposition that Obamacare has, in some sense, “won,” and that conservatives who can’t come to terms with that victory can’t come to terms with reality itself. Reading them, it struck me that this argument would benefit from laying down some specific markers for the near future, because Klein seems to move back and forth between two definitions of success. At times, as when he writes that Obamacare “has won its survival” and

It’s no secret that Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) don’t like one another. They battle regularly over legislation and their Senate floor fights over arcane-but-important rules have become must-see entertainment for senatorial insiders. According to aides in both parties, the two leaders have not had a one-on-one sitdown to discuss legislation (or anything else) since late last year. Nowadays, all business is conducted on the phone or in brief discussions on the Senate floor. Part of that feud is political – Democrats targeted McConnell in 2008, Republicans targeted Reid in 2010, Democrats

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'

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career.
