Fake Picture of Obama Skeet Shooting: Do You Want to See Real Pictures of Obama Shooting Guns?

Franklin Foer reports for the New Republic. During a recent interview, Foer asked President Obama about guns and gun control. Foer asked, "Have you ever fired a gun?" to which President Obama said, "Yes, in fact, up at Camp David, we do skeet shooting all the time." Critics of the president doubted the sincerity of Obama's claim. They say that Obama did that to earn points with gun owners in his pursuit to confiscate their guns. They ask why we've seen pictures of Obama doing everything else "including clipping his toenails," so why not pictures of him shooting guns at Camp David?

The New Republic tweeted a link to a picture they mistakenly believed that the White House published. TNR quickly realized its folly and deleted the tweet and apologized for its rush to publicize Obama shooting a shotgun. TNR tweeted, "OK, everyone. Apologies. Twitter sometimes leads to quick accidents"

    That doesn't change the fact that Obama is a lying POS. Who shoots skeet at eye level? They're not targets that sit on the ground. They're launched well above the horizon.

    Skeet is thrown at eye level from two towers (high and low) and 8 different shooting positions. Thanks for proving you have no clue what you're talking about.

    The mechanical launchers may be located at or near eye level but they launch the clay pigeons well above eye level as even your diagram shows. The starting position is usually pointing the barrel at eye level then raising up to track the trajectory of the skeet as Kennedy is in the starting (versus firing) position. Obie was firing at eye level which shows either the photo is bogus or he is a lousy shot and didn't fire until the pigeon had already dropped. Either way, he's a lying POS.

    You have never shot skeet in your life.

    I blow 500-1000 rounds of 28 gauge at it every week.

    The President's stance is 100% correct.

    I think that I know why Obummer hid his collage records and that is because he didn't pass his bar exam!
    I don't believe he has ever fired a bb gun let alone a shotgun!

    I'm a trap shooter but have shot skeet and have seen others shoot including tournaments with some of the finest in the world. The position shown in the picture is not a position that a shooter would ever be in.

    No but this one is. And as you can see he has the correct barrel length for skeet.

    correct barrel length skeet

    I saw this picture this morning 2/4 and he is left handed. Good he's shooting! I wish I could use rabbit muffs especially in the cold. Every pair that I've tried bangs off of my stock. He has a good cheek weld while firing and that's real good because it means that he will have a good follow through and he doesn't flinch which means he's shot some. But he's leaning back a bit too much for a skeet shooter; even for a trap shooter but he can get away with this in trap. Skeet targets come out pretty hot and you have to be aggressive and get on them and that leaning back style will slow him down. Everyone has their own style. I can't see his feet but it looks like either his legs are spread too far apart especially with how upright he's standing and he's leaning slightly backwards and needs to bend a bit more at the waist at least enough to get his nose out over his belt line or he's using the bent knee leading leg style. His balance might be off. Either way he's leaning back too much. In this picture it looks more like he's shooting trap than skeet. You know what's funny, most people don't know the difference and when I tell them I shoot trap and although I've shot skeet some I'm not a skeet shooter, they've heard of skeet and seem to not be able to say trap. Are you going to shoot skeet NO I shoot trap,

    Maybe, he should try on of those "assault rifles" and see if 10 rounds is enough for him. I hope knows which end is the safe end.

    I am tempted to send an email to the white house, inviting the President to go trap shooting with me, if he ever gets out my way ! Just to see if I would get a response . I would take him to my rod and gun club and have some fun shooting targets and clay pigeons .

    Given that he doesn't have any "pursuit to confiscate our guns", that's a ridiculous statement.

    He needs time to pose for the pictures and for the team that fabricated his birth certificate to help him out.
