The White House has released a photo of President Obama skeet shooting at Camp David from August, 2012, attempting to quell a controversy that arose when Obama said that he sympathized with hunters because he frequently went shooting himself.
Attn skeet birthers. Make our day - let the photoshop conspiracies begin!, former White House advisor David Plouffe tweeted in a message containing a link to a photo of Obama brandishing a shot gun and wearing ear muffs and sun glasses.
Conservative critics questioned the veracity of the Obamas claims of skeet shooting because he had never been seen publicly shooting a gun.

and when was this photo op staged...yesterday?

We have to stop being nice to these people and stop giving them the benefit of the doubt. Shout it from the rooftops and every media outlet. Use their own despicable Alinsky tactics against them, as distasteful as that is.
They probably just propped a clay up on a fence post so he could hit it on the first shot and then get back to destroying the economy.
I wonder how many hours it took to teach him how to hold that rifle.
Obama can make anything look gay, even shooting a shotgun.
This isn’t a picture of Fearless Leader shooting skeet. It is actually a photo of his raid on the Osama Bin Laden compound. NOW IT CAN BE TOLD!
Here they are, the anti-gun people, desperately propping their guy up as a shooter. Just this one time, they love guns. The irony is astonishing.
