And here's the picture the magazine pointed to:

The only problem: the picture is a fake, and not hosted on the White House's website.

Within minutes the magazine had deleted the tweet and admitted its mistake:

Seen the same picture with different background and with a golf club! These people are really lazy...but their idiot voters will believe it.

I don’t think you could get very good at skeet shooting by holding the shotgun sideways i.e. homey style.

Always put your golf glove in your pocket when you fire a shotgun. LOL

'Shotgunner' Obama Hates Camp David (because it has no golf course)

...just posted the exact pic on this thread.

That was too easy. ...and some lib rag was too happy to tweet it only to have to acknowledge their stupidity.

Pretty funny.

The New Republic was previously home to articles by Stephen Glass who basically faked about 40 articles including one where a bunch of young CPAC attendees took over a hotel and acted like drunken sailors with foul language, over drinking, and treating women badly.

A nice movie was made called “Shattered Glass” detailing Stephen Glass’s false articles.

They cropped it to hide the golf shoes, but weren’t smart enough to remove the golf glove hanging out of his pocket.

In the fake picture it looks like he is struggling just to lift the shotgun. It makes him look even wimpier than usual.

LOL! I saw that on a previous thread today and just assumed that one of our FR photo-shop geniuses made it. It’s obviously one of his sissified golfing pics.

from the daily caller:

http://dailycaller.com/2011/07/05/the-continued-relevance-of-stephen-glass/

Stephen Glass was a hot young writer in the early 1990s at the liberal magazine The New Republic. It turned out that in most of his articles he simply made stuff up. He wrote that they had designed a “portable urinal” so that bondsmen wouldn’t have to leave the trading floor. He accused CPAC-goers of drug abuse and rape. He invented false churches, including the Church of George Herbert Walker Christ. He was a novelist posing as a journalist. And the editors ran at least 27 bogus stories he had written.

I guess his “people” in Chicago don’t use the “super modified grip,” because too many of them are dying.

Apparently it is true that there is a skeet shooting range at Camp David and that it has been used by various presidents from Eisenhower at least up to George W. Bush.

NO ONE holds a firearm like that. And, NO ONE cranes their neck like that after taking a shot with a firearm. Whoever decided to try to fake Obozo with a shotgun is stunningly stupid.

Dunlop and Remington are same same, right? And shooting skeet to Zero must be either a super slice or a super hook since he gets more Mulligans than Bill Clinton who was once the presidential golf cheat champ.

At least to the LIVs (Obama's Low Information Voters) at any rate and they will still be stuck on stupid come 2014 if we can find the right 2x4 to smack upside their dumb ass heads!
