PRUDEN: Obama: Shooting blanks at the pigeons
Washingtontimes.com ^ | 2-5-13 | Wesley Pruden

Posted on 02/05/2013 10:09:36 PM PST by 444Flyer

President Obama has probably put the Secret Service on this one, and the FBI, the CIA and the D.C. cops, too. Who came up with that really dumb idea of putting out an official White House photograph of the president stalking clay pigeons with his shotgun?

Maybe it was the campaign consultant who gave Michael Dukakis a ride in an Abrams tank. (Maggie Thatcher had taken a similar ride two years earlier and looked like George S. Patton.) Or the wizard who decked out John Kerry in a lab suit that gave him the appearance of a giant sperm. The dodo who did that could have been the campaign consultant who advised Jimmy Carter to tell the famous story of how he was attacked by a killer rabbit.

Whoever it was, he or she made it worse by accompanying the photograph with the stern warning that “this [photograph] may not be manipulated in any way.” This was similar to telling a 4-year-old that he should “never try to put a pea up your nose.”

That’s the only logical explanation of the predominance of smoke output.

LOL!

This is the first comment on Pruden’s article:

“No shotgun has produced that much smoke since about 1880.

It is not possible to get smoke of any kind out of only the right side compensator ports.
Obama isn't shooting skeet, now I don't know what he was shooting at, but then neither does he...”

Right click on the photo, then click “Save image as” and print it out or, perhaps upload it into photobucket and print it from there. There may be other ways, but I’m not very computer savvy.

Here is the link to the actual graphic if this will help:

“John Kerry in a lab suit that gave him the appearance of a giant sperm.”

He looked so much more natural then...

Nixon won a ton of money playing poker returning from “in theater” at the end of WWII, IIRC.

Elmer Fudd. That’s the new term for him. Mocking him will bring him down a peg or two.

Somebody tell Glenn Beck he can save himself a lot of money if he he starts refering to him as Elmer Fudd.

It is possible , but rare. A friend of mine had a shotgun that was ported only on the right side.

He was right handed and had a muscle problem. This allowed him to get back on target faster.

That being said His shot gun never generated that much smoke.

no doubt if I could get a quality copy of that I’d frame it and hang it in the man cave.

The biggest clue that it is staged/faked is that they said it was taken last summer at Camp David. Everyone knows he doesn’t like and in fact despises Camp David so there are two lies here; one that he supports the 2nd amendment and the second that he goes to Camp David.

FUBO & FAD

Lay a ruler along the top of the shotgun barrel and see where it intersects his glasses. It looks like he can’t even see the front sight.

OK, OK, The Mombasa MF was out for a photo op. BFD.

After all, "Shooting Blanks at Clay Pigeons" is an apt metaphor for this administration. However, let's all look at the brighter side, shall we? Instead of spending day after day (and evening) in the playroom with Reggie Love and the multiple ESPN Monitors, while Valerie ran back and forth with towels, snacks, and teleprompter scripts, Barry is finally getting out in the fresh air once in a while. His color has improved. He may have even put on a pound or two. Best news of all? It appears that he has finally lost the "Mom Jeans." (probably Michelle's, since the seat was big enough to work as a spinnaker on a Flying Scot.)

In fact, were I on WH PR, I would seriously start thinking about re-running the "Michelle Furious About Barry Contact with Old Girlfriend" stories in the Globe and Enquirer. You know, to offset the Reggie Love thing, and now the Queer Boy Scout thing? Speaking of Michelle, it is probably now time to scotch the vicious rumour that she is the missing Williams Sister.

Anything, anything at all, to take the "mind" of the LIVs off the sinking economy, disastrous foreign policies, and $4 gas. Hey, don't look over there. Look over here!
