How big of an Obama lapdog is Andrea Mitchell? Even bigger than ardent Obama fan Chris Hughes. The Facebook co-founder, who bought the New Republic last year, recently scored an interview with President Obama that has been criticized for its generally soft questioning. But during an appearance on Mitchell's MSNBC show today, even Hughes was more candid about the prez than Mitchell.
When it came to the President's statement during the interview that at Camp David "we do skeet shooting all the time," Mitchell claimed "he didn't say that he was skeet shooting, but he does say that it's one of the practices at Camp David by his guests." Responding, Hughes effectively contradicted her: "Frank Foer, the editor of New Republic, actually asked him point blank 'have you ever fired a gun?' And in response he said "yeah, we go skeet shooting all the time up at Camp David. He and his guests. Which is news to us and news to a lot of people." The transcript of the interview makes clear that, contrary to Mitchell's claim, Obama answered in the personal and affirmative.

Golly Mr. Wizard—I didn’t know The One was such an outdoorsman!
Me: So, Mr. President you shoot skeet. Do you eat them afterwards?
BO: Why yes. There is nothing more satisfying than killing and dressing an inanimate object for dinner. My favorite recipe for clay pigeons is Braised Pigeons in Chocolate Sauce .
Me: Is there a secret to preparation?
BO: I like to soak them overnight in salt water and boil them for a long time to make them tender.
Me: Does the rest of the family eat them?
BO: Michelle loves them. She says they are good for her hips.
Me: What about the girls?
BO: Well. they are picky eaters and I usually fly in a pizza from Chicago when we have clay pigeon.
Me: Isn’t that extravagant?
BO: No this is Washington DC. We deserve it.
Me: Don’t you think that could cause some resentment in fly-over country?
BO: Those bitter clingers in fly-over country need to get with the plan. They should get fired from their jobs, sign up for 99 weeks of unemployment, food stamps, Medicaid, and a free Obamaphone. They would have plenty of money then.
Me: Thank you Mr. President.
Me: ....In other news CNN’s Piers Morgan suffered grievous knee injuries in an exclusive gun control interview with President Obama.
I have this image in my mind of Obama firing the shotgun and then dancing around screaming.
Skeet shooting is something totally different to closeted homosexuals. It’s slang for something nasty that gay guys do to each other.
Damn, how long do these old farts stay in public eye. Don’t they ever retire to their rocking and wheel chairs? She looks like death walking.
I haven't shot skeet in awhile, tend to do more sporting clays now. A lot tougher but more variation.
I hear you, shot skeet for years, but it was a drive to the range. Then a sporting course opened 6 miles from my house. Haven’t been back to the skeet field since, sold my tubed K80, and been loving it. Sporting is so much more interesting.
We’ve got some friends with a wonderful toy - a portable sporting clays tower. Just tow it out to the middle of somebody’s back pasture and let the fun begin!
