Our skeet-shootin' President

Major liberal on-line publication caught up in a photo-shop lie

by Clifford F. Thies

What was the guy thinking? That he could just b.s. his way through anything?

First, here is what he said, "Up at Camp David, we do skeet shooting all the time." Notice he did not say he personally skeet-shoots. His posse skeet-shoots. E.g., his secret service detail.

Then, the New Republic got faked into publishing a photo-shopped image of Obama skeet-shooing, an image that clearly was adapted from an image of him golfing. Now, somebody in the liberal media is investigating if Obama ever did any skeet-shooting at Camp David, and there's talk of investigating some of the other hocum he has engaged in over the years.

The liberal media is circling the wagons, accusing anyone of questioning Obama's Camp David skeet shooting as "skeeters." Mediaite's Tommy Christopher even criticized a conservative on CNN who questioned the veracity of the photo as a "deranged partisan." (See CNN segment at TheBlaze.)

Anyone know where we can get us a hun'in' license around here?
If anybody from the White House is looking for a few pointers on, quick, familiarizing the President with shooting, here's an instructional video. Notice that the shooter is using an assault weapon (not a rifle). Rifles, such as the M1 Garand or its successor the M14, give a considerable kick. In the hands of a trained sniper or marksman, the increased effective range, the stopping power of the bullet, and greater accuracy make it preferable. But, an assault weapon can be deadly enough for most purposes.

Always assume a correct stance to decrease kick-back
Even with a decreased kick, notice that the shooter leans into the weapon. Those who are afraid of the weapon tend to hold themselves back, which can actually risk injury even with a light caliber weapon. They also flinch, jerk the trigger, and look away, which means they miss. Also notice that the shooter uses a hand grip to control the weapon. I know, it looks scary. But, it's there for a reason. Gun control. The right kind of gun control.

Also notice in the top video, that the shooter, has a large capacity magazine. This allows her to continue firing which she might have to if she doesn't hit the target with the first round, if there are multiple targets, or if she is trying to suppress the target so as not to get shot back at.

I don't think Obama has ever touched a gun in his life. Except for photo-op, of course.

He doesn't need to touch a gun - he has all his crooked assed Muslim and Union friends to do it for him.
