I Call BullSkeet...



First there was this:

"President Obama tells the New Republic in an exclusive interview that he goes shooting during retreats. "Yes, in fact, up at Camp David, we do skeet shooting all the time,” Obama said when he was asked whether he had ever fired a gun. The revelation seems to have caught the interviewer off guard: “The whole family?” he asked. “Not the girls,” Obama answered, “but oftentimes guests of mine go up there.” The president then went on to explain the “profound respect” he has for the “traditions of hunting that trace back in this country for generations,” saying that “those who dismiss that out of hand make a big mistake.” Obama went on to say he understands there’s a big difference between guns in urban areas and rural areas." (source

Then this (even Obama's devoted press core has doubts?!):

"If there's a photo of President Obama shooting skeet, White House spokesman Jay Carney isn't aware of it.

"There may be, but I haven't seen it," Carney told reporters Monday.Questioned about a possible photo, Carney said: "When he goes to Camp David he goes to spend time with family and friends, not to produce photographs." (source)

But, as Michael Savage reminded listeners last night, we have pics of Obama walking the dog...eating ice cream...eating wings, hot dogs, pizza...in a bathing suit (ewww)... So, only skeet shooting was sans camera?

He also reminded listeners of this revelation:

"New York Times White House Correspondent Helene Cooper shared a scoop on "The Chris Matthews Show" over the weekend - she knows why President Barack Obama isn't eager to spend time at Camp David, the plush presidential retreat.

“I have figured out why President Obama does not like Camp David," Cooper said. "No golf."

Cooper said Obama “hates” going to Camp David, and she had never been able to understand why President Obama doesn't like going there until her most recent trip there with the Commander in Chief.

Said Cooper: “Everybody's going, ‘why doesn't he spend more time up there?’ ... No golf ... It’s all about the golf.” (source)

Did Obama's pandering finally catch up with him...or will his obedient gaggle of 'reports' cover for him again...?


Do you believe Obama goes skeet shooting?

Sure he does. He's joining the Special Olympics skeet shooting team as soon as he retires.

The phrase I have always heard by those who indulge in the sport is that they "shoot skeet" not that they engage in "skeet shooting".
It sounds to me like something cooked up by some staffer to try and make the Messiah’s gun-ignorant Disciples look less like ignoramuses.

Its a fucking damn lie. The only shooting he does is on the golf course.

Roboto said...

The only thing that he shoots off is his mouth.

The New Republic and the White House Press have completely sold out.

The obvious follow-up questions (what kind of shotgun? what gauge? what's your best score?) just aren't asked.

Sir, skeet or trap? What load do you prefer? I like number 12 in .412 guage, myself! With double naught spy buck shot.

I would be surprised if the Liar in Chief has even shot a BB gun.

Somehow, I think if anyone does any skeet shooting, it's his security team, and he just watches.

As George Costanza says... It's not a lie if you believe it.

Meanwhile, I love congresswoman Marsha Blackburn...Game on Barrack. http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2013/01/28/dubious-congresswoman-challenges-obama-to-skeet-shooting-match/

I seriously doubt he knows which end of the tube the round comes out of

Oh I don't know. I'm pretty sure if there is one thing that doesn't confuse Obama, it's a tube.
