The Obama Skeet Shooting Scandal and Weekend Links!

by Kate on February 2, 2013

So the White House releases a photograph of the Imperial President wearing mom jeans and skeet shooting at Camp David on August 4th, 2012. This, of course, is to prove to the world that Obama didn’t tell a big fat whopper when he said he “skeet shoots all the time“. Yep. The manufactured “He likes guns!” meme.

But there’s just one problem…

According to every major newspaper in the country – including this one – the Imperial President was actually playing golf at Andrews Air Force Base on August 4th, 2012 which is the day this photo was reportedly taken.

Perhaps the White House could explain how President Obama can be in two places at the same time as this photo below suggests beautifully? I won’t hold my breath. It could be bad for my health. We all know these people are pathological liars.

Because of the dates and Obama’s very public schedule, reaction to the truthfulness of this photo was quick. And as always, the Obama people are thinned skinned. They can’t ever take a punch. They cry. They whine. They make threats. So former Obama hitman shill adviser David Plouffe pops off on Twitter, calling the skeet photo skeptics “skeet birthers.” Which, frankly, is fairly clever but it only served to fuel the Photoshopping fires everywhere. Here’s his tweet:




Yep. David Plouffe is a moron. But we’re not finished yet with this whole skeet shooting scandal… On the White House Flickr stream, folks saw this notice warning off all mischievous people who would play around with this official photo of Teh Won. Check it out:

“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.”

Reportedly, that’s the standard notice the White House uses when releasing photos on Flickr. Whatev. It’s still imperialistic and begs to be challenged by free people. So the mockery that ensued over the questionable White House photo of the Imperial President skeet shooting has been swift and awesome. Here are just a few of my favorite Photoshopped versions I picked up from our Facebook page:

These Obama people think we’re so stupid when actually, some of us are damn brilliant!

Thanks for the link!

You know, I neither know nor care whether the President was shooting skeet on the day in question, but that picture looks to me like he fired at something at ground level. Maybe it’s easier to hit the clay pigeon before it’s been launched?

We elected Barack Hussein Obama, and then we re-elected him; if they think that we are stupid, it’s with good reason.

Obama can’t be in 2 places at once but it is pretty easy for him to go to two places (or more) in one day. Camp David to Andrews is usually done in a short 30 min helicopter ride. And Dana it sounds like you know very little about skeet shooting. There are two clay launch sites on the course , the low one launches from 3 feet and the clays go to about 15 feet high. If you are at the first or eighth firing position (furtherest from the low) then his aim looks about right Back in 2010 he also told the Texas championship rifle team about his shooting with his Secret Service handlers. You can google it if you wish to know.
