Skeptical congresswoman challenges Obama to skeet shooting match
CNN ^ | Jan 28, 2013 | Ashley Killough

Posted on 01/29/2013 6:43:49 AM PST by libstripper

It's about time for some bipartisan...skeet shooting?

Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tennessee, joined a chorus of skeptics who questioned President Barack Obama's recent comments about his hobby of skeet shooting, a sport where participants fire shotguns to break airborne clay disks.

"If he is a skeet shooter, why have we not heard of this? Why have we not seen photos? Why hasn't he referenced this at any point in time?" Blackburn said Monday on CNN's "Erin Burnett OutFront."

"I tell you what I do think," she later added. "I think he should invite me to Camp David, and I'll go skeet shooting with him and I bet I'll beat him."

You go girl! Marsha's one of our TN representatives, and one of the best. The Illegal will have a very hard time besting her at either trap or skeet. Even instruction from one of his Chicago South Side Banger buddies on the proper horizontal Banger stance for a Glock won't work.

I’d like to see the scrawney little twerp shoot a 12 gauge, it would probably knock him on his ass.

I love it. Obama will be taking off to learn and practice for the big event leaving us with a vacation from his highness and his decrees for a time.

i do not think this congresswoman knows about the perverted inference of skeet shooting in the urban vernacular...

obama’s immature nature will have him double entendre her into an embarrassing position... like teabagging... skeet shooting will be the next bastardization from the adolescent in chief.

Of all the lies Barry has passed off, the skeet shooting story takes the cake.

You know it is a bald faced lie.

Otherwise we would have been told that Obama was a sharpshooter and many photos would be thrown at us.

I think it's a very good bet that this lady knows what she's doing at the skeet field, and that she shoots either a 20 gauge or a 28 gauge. (Maybe a .410 if she's REALLY good at it.)

I hope she offered to even let 0 use a 12 gauge - under the close supervision of her and/or her security dudes, of course...

Then again you just know he's the kind of arrogant d!ck who's not gonna have any muzzle discipline at all.

What the hell kinda posing is that he's doing in that picture anyway, and not even with any eye or ear protection?

Point goes to the lady.

I think he’s lying, but I think the challenge is a mistake.

We don’t have an unalienable right to shoot skeet. We have an unalienable right to be armed with weaponry capable of fighting a tyranical overlord.

If he ignores this challenge, its a non-story. If he accepts, it means that he’s been practicing and it will get major coverage.

The correct response to the Demolsheviks is, “Stop trivializing the Constitution, by claiming it gives us the right to play games, but not be adults.”

I suck with a shotgun, went skeet shooting once, never hit a damn thing. Went duck hunting once managed to wing a duck after many tries then it took me another six rounds to kill the poor duck. I gave up duck hunting after that.

NO!!! I was peanut hunting down in Georgia and a pack of giant rabbits attacked me. They came from nowhere and went back to nowhere, but they took my weapons and I never saw them OR the rabbits again.
I still have nightmares about it.

Good for her, but more to the point why is no one pointing out the fact that the 2nd Amendment has nothing what so ever to do with skeet shooting, or that the President's ability to shoot skeet(non existent)has absolutely nothing to do with gun control legislation aimed at circumventing a constitutional amendment illegally.

Even if he can shoot skeet, or has participated in shooting skeet what has that to do with his gun grabbing BS?
