Obama goes skeet shooting 'all the time'
politico ^ | 1/27/13 | DONOVAN SLACK

Posted on 01/27/2013 9:49:09 AM PST by ColdOne

President Barack Obama says he has not only fired a gun, but has done it regularly.

"In fact, up at Camp David, we do skeet shooting all the time," the president told The New Republic. "Not the girls, but oftentimes guests of mine go up there.

"And I have a profound respect for the traditions of hunting that trace back in this country for generations.. And I think those who dismiss that out of hand make a big mistake."

Even if true (and I doubt it) the 2nd Amendment isn't about skeet shooting.

Yep, he sure does. There are a plethora of photographs with him shooting skeet. If he does, he does it in secret.

This is not only a lie by Obama, but a condescending lie. The 2nd Amendment is not a right to hunt. (...and lets see those picks “skeet shooting”)

I’ll bet you good money that when he was in high school in Hawaii, Obama was The Bagman on a Snipe Hunt.

How would you cook a skeet? And does skeet go with rice or mashed potatoes?

Surely there must be pictures of this. No politician left or right would miss the opportunity to have photos taken of this mythical event just in case they’re needed in the future.

notice, he didn’t say HE went shooting.

Just that others that go there can do it.

We have the Second Amendment so the skeet can shoot back.

Exactly. There's not a politician in this country who would miss a shot of a pro gun photo op. If there are no pictures, its just Lyin Joe again.

“All the time” between golf, watching basketball, being with his extra special SS dude, ice cream and hot dogs, posing for the cameras, sleeping, tokin’ on a few and entertaining his muzzy bros.

Liar, liar, pants on fire.

This is simply a call for citizens to demand that politicians and federal workers be banned from owning guns. Cite democide to support your case.

President Barack Obama says he has not only fired a gun, but has done it regularly. "In fact, up at Camp David, we do skeet shooting all the time,"

"I know some black people", "I like going to NASCAR races!",

Plenty of patronizing phrases politicians use.

None of them hold any water. IF you have to say it, then why is there doubt?

Maybe he should do a photo op at church again so he can continue to pretend to be a practicing Christian.

Camp David? I don’t think he’s been there more than twice. It’s not luxurious enough for him and his homegirl.

How about the traditions of individual rights and opposition to tyranny?

Interesting that when one goes to Google Images and searches "Obama skeet", there are no photos of our President skeet shooting. However, search "Obama golf" and there are thousands. Search "Obama hotdog" and there are hundreds of photos of the president eating hot dogs. Search "Obama dance" and there are thousands of photos of him dancing.

Since there are no photos of 0bama skeet shooting, I believe he is a liar.

Too bad hunting and skeet shooting (or even protection from criminals) aren’t the reason for the Second Amendment. Besides, he’s lying like a rug again. That scrawny POS wouldn’t know which end to point downrange.

American history according to Obama:

General Thomas Gage sent his British regulars into Lexington and Concord to confiscate Colonial skeet shooting equipment... sparking the American Revolution.

American Colonist Richard Cheney accidentally shot a British regular while skeet shooting at a Whale Oilman's club in Lexington or Concord... sparking the American Revolution.

Amendment 2: The Right of the People to shoot skeet shall not be infringed.

"Give me skeet shooting, or give me death!"

"Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in skeet shooting..."

read his comment again.

he just says that “others” go skee shooting at Camp David.

He just threw in the “we” at the beginning because everything always has to be about him.

Note the wording. “We” do skeet shooting. “Guests of mine often go up there”. Not him.

Also, they are guests of the USA not his, he is just a freeloader like those he represents.

The headline does not match the article. Barry implies that other people shoot skeet, while he’s at Camp David...but makes no claim that he has done it.

A clever way for him to lie...IF the media goes along.

“Skeet shooting all the time”, record golf rounds, endless vacations, and the same 7.8% unemployment he started with. What an arrogant, tone-deaf loser.

While they take your guns, Biden tells you to shoot people after a natural disaster, Obama claims to love hunters.

Pure agenda driven bullcrap liars.

This from a person often described in the media as a former professor of Constitutional Law. . . he should be mocked as a minimum . . . he knows better . . .he is trying to deceive the people of this great country. . .and that is dangerous to our freedoms.
