As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Does Anyone Believe Obama Skeet Shoots “All the Time”?

That’s what he said during his interview with the New Republic.

The Washington Post finds no evidence that Obama has ever shot skeet, or anything else.

A source tells Fox News he did it like once and hated it.

Oh, well, wait, there is in existence at least one photo of Obama exercising his Second Amendment rights.

I thought you might want to see this video of a president with a military background firing at skeet at Camp David. And his wife too.

Haunting, isn’t it? And by the way he handles the shotgun, it’s clear he shoots “all the time.”

  1. The shock and dismay that rippled across our country on 9/11 was nothing compared to the days after JFK was killed. Watching the video of him and hisyoung son, of his late wife only reminded me of the terrible time Americans had coming to grips with what happened that day.

    Skeet shooting? He lied.

    • You raise a great point, srdem. JFK’s murder was our collective loss of naive thinking. No one asked if you were a Democrat or Republican, people were hugging/crying in the streets. 9/11 was horrific but, to a degree, I think we expected something like it would happen. The death of Camelot was a total shock.

      If I could soundtrack the clip Keith used, I’d vote for Babs’ “The Way We Were”

  2. No. He wouldn’t know the difference between SXS and O/U or different chokes. If he’d like, I can explain to him why I think 20-gauge O/U with light modified choke is the best for all clay shooting.

  3. Not everyone is cut out to be a skeet shooter. Although my dad was a champion at skeet shooting (winner of many competitions in Europe in the 60s), I sucked at it. I don’t blame the Jug Eared Wonder for not being any good at skeet shooting, or not enjoying it, but I do blame him for LYING about it.

    BTW, I’m still lousy on the skeet range, but am damn good with a handgun. You just gotta choose the right weapon and know your limitations. I have none (no limitations) when it comes to self defense.

  4. Well, if you use the last definition, to defraud, swindle; “short change”, then Obama is being accurate. I doubt he has ever held a shotgun in his life, let alone fired one. The recoil would have knocked him on his skinny butt.

  5. When he said “we do skeet shooting all the time” he must have meant the royal we. Anytime he says we do something or we must do something, he isn’t talking about himself, he’s talking about everybody else. Examples of the royal we in the vernacular of Preezy Revenge (emphasis added):

    “So we might as well do it now – pull off the Band-Aid; eat our peas.” (2011 debt ceiling debacle)

    We have been through this too many times.” (phony tears after Newtown tragedy)

    We’re not going to use signing statements as a way of doing an end run around Congress.” (2008 pre-election interview)

    Preezy Revenge told a cheering Las Vegas campaign audience about “the tough day we had today”. The date was September 12th, 2012 – a few hours after Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, and Tyrone Woods had been murdered in an Islamic terrorist attack on the US embassy in Benghazi and the subsequent firefight.

    We look out for one another and we don’t leave anybody behind.” (Remarks in New Jersey after Sandy – not Benghazi)

    • Maybe he’s using “we” because he catches so much flack for the overuse of “I” and “me” in his speeches ? But “we” sure does include “I” and “me” doesn’t it ? :D

      For being such a great speechifyer, he sure is a poor communicater.

    • Statement by President George W. Bush on the passing of Barney Bush:

      Laura and I are sad to announce that our Scottish Terrier, Barney, has passed away. The little fellow had been suffering from lymphoma and after twelve and a half years of life, his body could not fight off the illness.

      Barney and I enjoyed the out…doors. He loved to accompany me when I fished for bass at the ranch. He was a fierce armadillo hunter. At Camp David, his favorite activity was chasing golf balls on the chipping green.

      Barney guarded the South Lawn entrance of the White House as if he were a Secret Service agent. He wandered the halls of the West Wing looking for treats from his many friends. He starred in Barney Cam and gave the American people Christmas tours of the White House. Barney greeted Queens, Heads of State, and Prime Ministers. He was always polite and never jumped in their laps.
      Barney was by my side during our eight years in the White House. He never discussed politics and was always a faithful friend. Laura and I will miss our pal.

    • Barney was a REAL member of the Bush family, not a photo op prop like poor BO.

      You can tell a real animal lover vs. one that uses animals as a prop by the way the person and animal interact. Barney seemed to always be by W’s side when W was not doing official things. BO on the other hand seems to be trotted out when it is convenient.

      • It’s rare I get chance to correct you, Shofar, you normally have ironclad posts, but THIS time, you’re wrong. Obama, does, in fact, LOVE dogs.

        With the right sauces…

  6. Wow. That old video was heart-wrenching. I was just nine years old when JFK was assassinated, yet that day and the days following are etched upon my memory. Seeing old clips of the funeral procession, with the dirge, the riderless horse, and John-John’s salute to his fallen father, still makes me weepy.

  7. The WH released this morning a photo of Obama shooting a shotgun. Quoting from the Weekly Standard:

    The Blog
    W.H. Releases Photo of Obama Shooting a Gun
    10:17 AM, Feb 2, 2013 • By DANIEL HALPER

    This morning, the White House released a photo of President Obama shooting a gun[.]
    “President Barack Obama shoots clay targets on the range at Camp David, Md., Saturday, Aug. 4, 2012. (Official White House Photo by Pete Souza),” the caption reads.
    ‘This official White House photograph is being made available only for publication by news organizations and/or for personal use printing by the subject(s) of the photograph. The photograph may not be manipulated in any way and may not be used in commercial or political materials, advertisements, emails, products, promotions that in any way suggests approval or endorsement of the President, the First Family, or the White House.'”

    Interesting how the WH caption with the photo pretty much disavows Obama’s firing of a shotgun.

    • The only things Barry does all the time: lie and spend other people’s money. – MichelleIndependent

      Not true! Those aren’t the ONLY things he does!

      He ALSO divides America, ends Constitutional rule of law, destablizes the world, murders children in his whimsical drone strikes, takes credit for things he doesn’t do, shifts blame for things he DOES do, and generally causes so much damage to this Country it will takes DECADES to fix – it it can be fixed at all!

      AND, he does indeed “lie and spend other people’s money”. Between parties and vacations, that is.

      Actually, he’s a pretty busy guy. It’s just not to our benefit…
