Posted on 02/02/2013 8:10:33 AM PST by GraceG
The White House has released a picture purporting to show President Obama "skeet shooting" at Camp David. An activity he claims he does "all the time."
The White House also warns all you mischievous internet types to not mess around with the picture:
"This official White House photograph is being made available only for publication by news organizations and/or for personal use printing by the subject(s) of the photograph. The photograph may not be manipulated in any way and may not be used in commercial or political materials, advertisements, emails, products, promotions that in any way suggests approval or endorsement of the President, the First Family, or the White House."

This picture was processed using different layers run through several different computer programs.....much like Obama’s BC
Hadn’t thought of that, but you’re right. Maybe a little target practice to get him used to the concept, feel and action of a gun first?
New king, new rules. Don’t get caught making fun of his huge ears or his preference for same sex
News outlets reported he teed off at 9 am.
Okay...so he’s not afraid of guns when HE’S holding them, just when OTHERS are holding them. Message received and confirmed.
OTOH- is there a division of PETA that will be outraged on behalf of ‘clay pigeons’ because of the symbolism of killing a bird?
I’m with you. Didn’t he just say he’s not a king?
That's what I'm talkin' about!
However, commie socialist _residents don't know how to do anything right...
My authority for my affirmative answer comes from a lifetime of experience being left-handed (excluding a short time in first grade when Miss Newlove forced me to use the wrong hand - until my Mother had a talk with her.. My Mother was also left handed...)
That baseball pitch has to be the worst in history.
One picture? Of the most photographed person on earth doing something "he does all the time"?. I don't think so. A screen capture from video or one still from a movie of the moment after the load leaves the barrel. To prove that he acctually shot the gun. Obviously posed (like most everything Obama does). Probably on a dare or a bet. If he shot all the time there would be more pics than him playing golf. We know this is posed.
Notice venting up. Anti-recoil porting on the top barrel of a small barreled over/under? 20 ga? 28ga.? That's a girl's gun. Obama is skinny, but with a "heavy" gun like an o/u, he ought to be able to shoot a 12ga. with skeet (light) loads. Notice his grip, not relaxed where he could swing on a moving air-borne target, but hanging on like it was .458 Weatherby Magnum. Stance is wrong, too. He either doesn't know what he is doing, not shooting at a target, or scared of the damn thing. Or all 3. Wuss.
He's just shooting down range, barrel is pointed too low, even though it is in full recoil. This is just a propaganda shot. Where are all the pics taken fom behind that show him "dusting" the clay pigeons? Don't exist, that's why we aren't shown them.
It's been years since I shot skeet, so I might be wrong, but the only thing believable about this is it was probably shot during warm weather - see the short sleeve shirt and green, lush woods in the background. Also real expert competators sometimes compete with small gauge shotguns, but that doesn't look like the case here.
Posed by the Poser-in-Chief. Probably will end up on the "Obama is a Big, Fat Liar" thread.
Barack Obama is having national backlash problems over his recent attempt at gun confiscation measures using the Sandy Hook childern as his scapegoat.
In an emergency meeting with Vallerie Jarrett, David Axelrod and Jake Carney, it is decided that the only clear way to attempt to diffuse the uproar over his gun-grabbing stance is for Obama to be seen as a "Pro Second Amendment - man of the people".
The decision is made that Obama will go duck hunting, (like Kerry did in 2004) a sure positive photo-op to prove he's really "pro-gun".
They take Obama to Cabelas, fix him up with a camo-outfit from hat to boots, an 870 12 gauge pump and arrange for a Maryland hunting permit so they can leave and return from Camp David to do the photo-op.
Just outside of Camp David, the Obama entourage comes upon a large field with the perfect setting for the photo-op and the group exits the Presidential motorcade to begin the hunt with the Obama boot-licking MSM following Axelrod, Carney and Obama as they begin their duck hunt.
An hour has almost passed with no sign of anything "duck-like" to attempt to have Obama shoot at, when suddenly a group of about six ducks appear from out of nowhere flying from left to right in front of Obama and the entourage.
With much excitement from Axelrod, Carney and the half dozen press members specially choosen for the photo-op, they start to cheer wildly for Obama to take aim at the ducks. Obama racks a shell into the chamber as he lifts the 870 pump to his shoulder for his first shot which misses. The group cheers louder as the second of three loaded shells also misses it's mark.
With the group in an almost frenzy and the ducks now flying almost out of range, Obama makes his last attempt with his remaining shot.
It's a hit!!
Feathers fly as the shot finds it's mark, but because of the distance, the duck does not immediately fall to earth as hoped, but is wounded and continues a downward flight path towards a farm with a large barn and a fence separating Obama from his prize photo-op duck. The duck hits the barn and drops to the ground not far from what appears to be the main house on the substanially sized farm.
A quick decision is made by Carney and Axelrod that Obama should retrieve the duck and the press should wait at their present position while this happens and do the pics when he returns to avoid the apperance that Obama merely "winged" the bird and had to go and fetch it.
It's about a walk of one hundred yards before Carney, Axelrod and Obama reach the property fence and after climbing over it is about another one hundred yards to arrive at the barn where they see the duck lying on the ground.
As the three of them start to retrieve the duck, a booming voice, along with the sound of a shotgun chambering a shell, hollers: "What do you three gentlemen think you're doing tresspassing on my property??"
Axelrod answers first: "We're terribly sorry sir. President Obama was duck hunting and he wounded a duck which flew to this spot beside your barn. We were just retrieving the duck".
Obama replies next: "Hi! I'm President Obama and I want to apologize for us tresspassing on your property to get the duck. We will just take the duck and be on our way."
The farmer replies: "I can tell you three have never been duck hunting in Maryland before because you don't know the rules about the "Maryland Duck Hunting Challenge".
Carney, Axelrod and Obama look at each other in confused total bewilderment as Obama asks:
"What is the 'Maryland Duck Hunting Challenge'???"
The farmer replies: "Here in Maryland, if you wound a duck that lands on someone's property, you can't simply go and take the duck without completing a challenge from the property owner of his choosing."
Obama replies: "Well we had no advanced idea about the rules here in Maryland. What would be your choice of a challenge so that I can take my duck?"
The farmer replies: "One of the most common challenges is the "Groin Kicking Contest".
Obama asks:" Groin Kicking Contest??"
The farmer answers: "The Groin Kicking Contest consists of the two of us trading kicks to the groin with the last one standing becoming the owner of the duck".
Axelrod and Carney quickly look back two hundred yards away at the press reporters awaiting the President's return. Along with Obama the three huddle and discuss the situation.
Axelrod, with Carney in complete agreement, tells Obama: "If you walk back to that group of press people without that duck, your can kiss your second term "Good-BYE". You'll be nothing but a laughing stock for ANY agenda you had hoped to accomplish until you leave office in 2016. Everyone from Leno, Letterman, Stewart, Rush, Hannity, O Reilly and Beck will have a field day with it if you don't!! You HAVE to do the challenge!!"
Obama looks back at the press waiting for him, looks at Axelrod and Carney who are giving him the "WELL..what's it gonna be??" look as he slowly turns to the farmer and reluctantly nods in the affirmative as he says to him:
"OK. I accept your challenge."
The farmer says: "Fine. "The Maryland Duck Hunting Challenge" rules state that the property owner is the one who always starts the challenge, so I will get to kick you first."
Obama looks down at the heavy looking steel-toed workboots of the farmer as he reluctantly replies:"Well OK".
Obama hands his shotgun to Axelrod as Carney starts to cheer Obama to victory."You can do this!!" Carney tells Obama. "Yes we can!!" hollers Axelrod.
Obama and the farmer walk towards each other until they are close enough to begin the contest. Both men are seriously sizing up the situation as Obama opens his stance to receive the first attempt fom the farmer.
"Are you ready to begin??" ask the farmer.
Obama takes one more glance at the waiting press, a last wary glance at a confident Axelrod and Carney and replies:
"OK. I'm ready!!"
Obama then closes his eyes and awaits the farmer's first kick.
The farmer's tremendous kick lifts Obama at least a foot off of the ground as Obama returns to earth landing in a fetal position heap of extreme groaning and almost unbearable pain.
Axelrod and Carney are in complete disbelief with the power of the kick just administered to the President. They both scream at Obama who is rolling on the ground "Are you OK????"
Obama is unable to respond due to the severity of the kick he has just received and continues to try to get to his feet after what has seemed like an unrecoverable first kick from the farmer. It has been about five minutes since the kick and now Obama is starting to recover.
"You have GOT to get up!!" screams Axelrod. "Your whole legacy and progressive agenda depend on it!!!"
Obama finally makes eye contact wth Axelrod and Carney.
Carney pleads to Obama: "Man you have to get up NOW!! The press is back there trying to see why you aren't returning with your duck. You CAN'T come back empty-handed!!"
Obama is finally able to attempt to stand up. Axelrod and Carney help him to his feet as Obama unsteadily stands looking at the farmer and says:
"OK....that was a pretty substantial first kick from you in our challenge" (as Axelrod and Carney back away to let Obama stand on his own).
"You see that group of press people over there??" Obama yells the farmer."They are expecting me to come back over there with that duck. People have counted me out before but I have always surprised them with a victory be it Obamacare, destroying the coal and oil industry, both of my elections and now my plan to finally disarm the American people."
"I WILL win this contest!!" Obama promises as his energy starts to return."According to the rules of The Maryland Duck Hunting Challenge", it is now MY turn to kick you in the groin!! Spread your legs and get ready because I'm going to give you at least as good as you gave me and see if YOU survive it!!!"
The farmer replies:"Aw, you can keep the duck".
LOL, bet many would like that opportunity!!
At the moment gases are coming out he should be getting pushed back by the recoil. He doesn’t look like there is any recoil pressure on his shoulder. My gut feeling is that they shot him standing there (pun intended) and photoshopped the exiting gases.
Besides, knowing these phonies, they would prefer manufacturing a fake picture over taking a real one, just because that’s the way they are.
