Posted on 02/02/2013 8:10:33 AM PST by GraceG
The White House has released a picture purporting to show President Obama "skeet shooting" at Camp David. An activity he claims he does "all the time."
The White House also warns all you mischievous internet types to not mess around with the picture:
"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."

Al least they did not photoshop him with a Right Handed grip!! He’s Left Handed.
I’m surprised Barry didn’t try to hold it gangsta style.
If it was shot by a government photographer you can ‘shop it all you want.*

Don’t lefties wear their watches on their right arm? Just sayin’.
What’s the purpose of a ported barrel? Wouldn’t that reduce velocity?
Well from the position of the recoil pad on his shoulder I suspect that was the first and last time he ever shot a shotgun. I suspect this was in retaliation to comments being made. I also notice no station or house plus he’s not even looking down the rib. I shoot skeet, trap and clays and have never seen that much smoke come out unless you were to pull the shot and shoot with the wadding only, then you have a bunch of unburt powder going down the barrel, another staged photo shot.
So what? So somehow in the demented scheming minds of FUBO’s handlers a posed photo holding/firing a shotgun makes him NOT a gun grabbing Marxist, but just a good ol’ boy, and “one of us”?
“See?...See...? I shoot skeet! (Therefore) I love the 2nd Amendment!” The only relationship shooting skeet has to the 2nd Amendment is there are guns...
Calling or portraying a thing as something else does not change it’s nature...For example, I could call a Commie douchebag a Wingmaster, but “the thing” would still be a Commie douchebag...
Not even a “nice try”, Numbnuts!
I’ve already grabbed the full sized photo and I’m deciding how to fix it.
Lol...I knew he was left-handed. He’s a radical leftist in many ways.
(PS Nothing against south paws in general...)
It reduces muzzle climb at the expense of reduced velocity. Neither effect is particularly significant in a shotgun.
What I would really like to know is why the shotgun has a visible choke only in the top barrel. That makes no sense for skeet. Neither does the fact that he’s got no vest and no extra ammunition.
This is (was) a staged photo op, no question in my mind.

I wonder if they shopped the smoke in to add more to the picture? I’m sure some of our expert FReepers could analyze and tell.
Makes me wanna go out and invest in photoshoppe!
Someone needs to add another puff of smoke coming our of his a$$.
Lol! Hubby and I agree that, based on this photo, it is CLEAR that Obama does not know how to hold a gun and that this was indeed staged.
