White House pic: Obama goes shooting in his mom jeans ‘all the time’; White House sneers at ‘skeeters’

President Obama totally goes skeet shooting. “All the time!” Of course, White House press secretary Jay Carney couldn’t say how often “all the time” was and had never seen photos of the alleged skeet shooting enthusiast doing his thing.

Until now.

Today he has proof for all you naysayers: a photo of Obama shooting on his last birthday.

Nice mom jeans, by the way.

We can’t wait for The New Republic to breathlessly tweet the evidence.

Update:

Communications director Dan Pfeiffer uses his official White House account to tweet proof “For all the ‘skeeters.'”

Former Obama adviser Plouffe went even further, calling skeptics “skeet birthers.”

Update:

Many are questioning the White House’s insistence that the skeet shooting photo not be tampered with.

The notice that appears below the Flickr photo:

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.

That is the standard notice the White House uses when releasing photos on Flickr.

Heh. Have at it, Photoshoppers!

Update:

  • http://apostrophejones.com/ Gloves Donahue, Jr.

    Now let’s see the video where he yells”EEK!” and throws the gun down.

    Then the Secret Service wrestles the intact skeet to the ground.

    • aPLWBinAK

      He had to be reminded several times to yell “pull!” instead of “Alan’s snackbar!”

      • TocksNedlog

        Some creative type should Photoshop a word balloon of Obama shouting “Allahu Akbar!” onto this pic.

      • prlgrl

        He might just be so bad at it that he didn’t hit it until it was almost on the ground, or he had it set to fly along the ground as a handicap.

        • CatHerder

          Then he’d be a ‘skeeter’ and a ‘snipe-er’ both?

        Also, and maybe it’s been asked before, but surely a shotgun nowadays doesn’t smoke like that?? Unless it’s very old? If not….then.. photo fake!

        • thomaspainelives

          Yep, any gun produces a certain amount of smoke, the smoke you see is about right for a full load shotgun round. Nothing wrong with that. It’s just that the shotgun’s positioned wrong on his shoulder, his left arm is held wrong, he’s not sighting correctly, and, as others have noted, skeet FLY UP!

      Linda you start that way then once released you follow the clay pigeon up then shoot. I havent shot since I was a kid, but one never forgets. You dont aim at the sky and wait.

      • Give me Liberty

        You don’t fire at eye level either…shoot skeet much, Guest? Fail.

      • GaylePutt

        I guess he didn’t wait then because it appears he shot prematurely.

      • It’s just me again

        If they took the photo before he shot, I’d agree, but the problem with your theory, he clearly shot the gun straight ahead. He didn’t track up to shoot. Even if he did shoot skeet that day, they don’t know enough about it to realize this photo doesn’t show him shooting skeet, just firing a shot gun. Why they bother with this in the first place, I’ll never know. I don’t care if he knows how to shoot, he doesn’t know how to run a country and that’s a problem.

      • Linda (Lou) Norris

        Guest, I don’t know much about guns, but I do know that when there’s smoke coming out of the end of it like that, it means a bullet came out in the instant before. He was not aiming in this photo, he had already pulled the trigger.

      Maybe they are shooting clay rabbits. Or he does not know what he is doing. You wanna bet which?

      BTW, is President Obama shooting a semi auto with an extended ammo tube? http://evilbloggerlady.blogspot.com/2013/02/barack-obama-is-shooting-semi-automatic.html

      • Tig

        No Evil B, that’s an O/U 12 ga with a compensated barrel set. Is most likely an expensive shotgun simply because you, I and the rest of the American taxpayer’s purchased it for his royal peckerheadness. He has to shoot a compensated gun because he doesn’t have the cajones to take some real recoil.

    • Vennoye

      Oh what a tangled web we weave, When first we practise to deceive! ~~Sir Walter Scott~~
      Why can’t these people at least, get someone who knows ANYTHING about shooting skeet for their faux photo ops!! LOL!

      • Madmax1450

        You said it right Vennoye what a total fake. And whats with the puffs of smoke going in two separate directions

        • http://www.facebook.com/mike.whitman.52 Mike Whitman

          that is about the only real info in the pic. high end skeet guns have ported barrels to cut down on muzzle rise to allow for a quicker second shot.

          • Madmax1450

            Right i know that but shouldn’t the smoke be coming out sideways as they are ported on the side of barrel

      • creeper

        Are you kidding? They don’t for one second think we’re worth that kind of effort.

        Which explains RadicalRebelWhoMeToo’s link above to the Reuters story of what Barry really did on his birthday. They hold us in utter contempt and are convinced they can lie to us endlessly without consequence…that we believe everything they tell us.

        Sadly, too many of us do.

    • Milton Partain

      He has the clay pigeon in a trap to keep it still or maybe he has Boehner in a trap . The smoke is very strange , coming from the end of the barrel is normal , although that is excessive smoke for modern gunpowder , but smoke exiting several inches before the end unless the barrel has a hole on top is totally wrong . The way he is holding the butt to his shoulder shows inexperience , if there is recoil it will hurt and it would affect accuracy . The whole thing looks phony but what can we expect from the Phony In Chief ,

      • Madmax1450

        I agree that it is a phony photo

      Excellent observation Linda Lou. He also said he “talks with Bebe on the phone all the time” last summer/fall all the while he was blowing him off.. I believe “all the time” loosely translates into – rarely – for this excuse of a leader.

    • It’s just me again

      That’s what I said to my husband. When we shoot skeet, they are flying through the air, not sitting still straight ahead. Looks more like target shooting.

        Takes the recoil out. In other words it doesn’t kick ya as hard.

          And very arguably decreases accuracy.

          • Catchance

            …which makes no difference, as he wasn’t aiming at anything, anyway.

  • Steve_J

    Somehting about Obama and the shotgun looks odd. Not saying it’s a doctored picture at all, it just looks odd.

    • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ Penny Robinson Fan Club

      Well he is shooting left-handed, that might be part of it.

      • prlgrl

        Makes sense though. Obama is left handed – which means he is right brain dominant and highly emotional and illogical – so unless he is bi-chiral (preferring different hands for different tasks) he should be shooting left handed. Its the vented barrel that looks so odd to me.

        • TocksNedlog

          Hey! I’m left-handed, and I’m not “highly emotional and illogical” you . . . you — jerk girl!

          • prlgrl

            Can’t argue with neuro-biology. Right brain dominants are more emotional and illogical than left brain dominants. Interesting side-note, southpaws are more likely to be liberals. I wonder why…

          • TocksNedlog

            We’re also more creative.
            But the Left-Right brain thing is HARDLY settled science. Ford and Bush41 = left-handed; FDR, LBJ, and Carter = right-handed. I’m left-handed and I’m conservative; my mom is right-handed and she’s liberal.
            If you take these things too far, you can wind up in astrological or old wives tales (“I can tell the sex of your baby by how low it sits in your tummy”) territory.

      Don’t be rude about the shotgun.

    • TocksNedlog

      Most left-handers wear a wristwatch on their right wrist, so that it doesn’t get in the way of things they are holding with their left hand — like a shotgun stock, for instance.

      perhaps it’s the contents that look odd…

  • Blake Waymire

    He’s either the slowest shot I’ve ever seen or this one’s staged. Could be both.

  • Jack Deth

    Who Ports the barrel of their shotgun?

    Choke, certainly. But Porting?

    Smooth bores don’t require Porting to vent gasses and reduce climb and recoil.

    While a Choke tightens the shot pattern leaving the barrel.

    Can’t tell if that an Over/Under or Side by Side.

    It’s really sad when the shotgun looks fake, but the Mom Jeans are all too real!

    • mike_in_kosovo

      Ported barrels aren’t all that *un*common on high-end shotguns. Briley and Vang Comp both do porting mods.

    Here’s a comedic skit* I’d love to see: have a Michelle Obama-look-a-like standing outside the Presidential closet, in the Presidential bedroom where her husband sleeps, and she says: “come out, come out, whatever you are.” Out pops you-know-who – wearing his Cheshire Cat grin – dressed in that outfit he wore when he was bike-riding. Is there no one at Fox brave enough to do it?

        Worse than a speck of patina on Dear Leader’s halo is the fact that their beta male on beta male fantasies would be ruined.

  • Karl H

    They say a picture is worth a thousand words and this is certainly the case here. Aside from this being a staged photo, which is obvious, there are so many things this photo tells.

    1) We as a nation required photo evidence of the POTUS actually firing a gun. That speaks volumes of the trust Americans have in the POTUS,

    2) That the POTUS offered up photo evidence of him firing a gun shows that he knows what little confidence we as a nation have in his ability with even the most basic of concepts such as shooting a gun.

    3) It reminds us that even the Press Secretary was incredulous when speaking about the POTUS and his “skeet shooting”

    4) And finally even the most liberal readers on this site immediately started looking at the photo for elements of photoshopping because no one can actually picture Obama holding a gun.

    • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ Penny Robinson Fan Club

      Yeah, even if he has shot skeet in the past, this is SO obviously a contrived photo op it aint funny. Shows how contemptuous they are of the American people, and the confidence they have in the Collaborationist Media not to call them out.

    As someone who has even less experience using a gun than Obama, I have to ask: Are you supposed to hold the end of the shotgun right up into your face like Obama does? Because once the thing is fired, wouldn’t the kickback potentially cause a lot of injury?

    • http://twitter.com/TheAngieNC2 Angie (D)

  • DjWeideman

    It’s been a while since I fired a shotgun, but in addition to resting his cheek on the stock, which might give him a headache later, he’s also not leaning forward at all, so the recoil is likely to throw him back. The range master didn’t point this out at all?

    His image in this photo is crisp, while the background vegetation appears blurred. He’s also aiming too low to be shooting a clay pigeon. The buttstock is also not properly seated into his shoulder.

  • R0nin

    I’m not at all sure it hasn’t already been photochopped. (Preemptively dissing “photoshop conspiracies” doesn’t mean there was no photoshopping.) He appears to be sighting alongside the barrel, rather than along the top of it.

    Maybe it’s already started kicking upwards, though.

    In any case, “shopped” or not, this photo convinces me of nothing. He’s still a gun-grabbing Leftist.

    Camp David skeet range has wooden fence around it.

  • Steven H

    You know what I find particularly telling about this pic? Anyone who is an experienced skeet shooter will tell you this looks fake . and it’s not for any of the reasons most of you are giving. Let me explain …

    Over/Under shotguns (especially 20 gauges WITH ported barrels like this one) ARE popular among SKILLED skeet shooters. The ported barrel reduces recoil and it’s A GOOD THING because there’s only ONE REASON to use an over/under. So you can go after two skeet in one “pull.” The reduced recoil that the ported vent allows makes it easier to nail both skeet in one round. You get two shots to hit two targets, after all. Gotta make those two count.

    The fact that he is going after a LOW FLYING SKEET isn’t weird. What IS WEIRD is he was shooting at it with the TOP BARREL. Any over/under skeet shooter who isn’t an idiot will tell you this pic is crap because … when the discs fly? He’d try to pick off the first one with the top barrel. Then he’d try to nail the other clay with the lower, second barrel. Sometimes, sure .. you might have to pick it off right above the grass like he’s doing here. HOWEVER … even if he WAS aiming at a clay in this image .. the fact that he’s shooting at a low skeet with the top barrel tells me he just doesn’t know what the hell he’s doing and that this was totally staged.

  • http://twitter.com/isleofyouth PhilipJames

    The weird venting to the top is something I would like explained… are there guns that vent out to the side like that?

    • b_truit

      Yes it reduces recoil.

    • http://www.theconservativevoices.com/ dmacleo

      I know some side vent but have not seen any that vent that far back. but I also have not used anything specifically designed for skeet shooting so…

      • kenai

        The porting on a shotgun must be done behind the choked portion of the barrel. That’s not necessary for a pistol or rifle.

        • http://www.theconservativevoices.com/ dmacleo

          I know that.
          I have never seen one that far back, I have never seen one more than 2″ or so behind the choke.
          this looked to be 6-8″
          which is why I wondered if it was specifically a trap gun.
          however, whens the last time you saw your shells making that mush smoke?

          • kenai

            Do a search on ‘pro port: shotguns’. It’s the shotgun operation for Magna Port. They have some good photos. Agreed, there’s too much smoke. Looks like it was loaded with black powder or Pyrodex.

    • kenai

      It’s called porting and yes, it’s fairly common on trap, skeet and sporting clays shotguns. It’s main purpose is to reduce muzzle flip, the tendency of the barrel to rise from recoil and allow the shooter to more quickly align on a second target. It also reduces somewhat perceived recoil.

      The problem is, the barrel is ported near the top and on both sides. Why is smoke being vented from one side of the barrel but not the other.

    • Michelle

      According to the Chicago Sun Times, he traveled to Camp David on Aug 4, 2012, where he spent the night before returning to the White House the next morning. He had no guests during that overnight stay, but according to Barry, he goes skeet shooting when he has guests. Also, I find it extremely hard to believe that after playing golf for 6 hours that morning (according to many reports), putting him at Camp David in the late afternoon of his birthday and he said, “Wait, while I’m here for the afternoon, let me get in some skeet shooting!” It never happened.

  • Michelle

    I do not for one minute believe this picture. A satellite photo of the Camp David skeet range is available on Google maps. In the photo there is clearly a fence, that runs in the shape of an arc, between the high house and the low house (from where the clays are launched). There are five shooter positions along the arc and it’s impossible to get a photo with a shooter in any of those positions without seeing the fence along the back.

    YOU GUYS don’t get it. He doesn’t worry about what he does or what the government does, how many weapons his side has. HE wants our Guns so when his Coup is ready to finalize we have no means of defending ourselves. Hitler did it, Stalin did it. Chavez and Castro did it. Disarm the citizens and the country is yours! Obama is establishing his new Socialist Republic of the former United States of America. This has nothing to do with stopping mass shootings. They know full well the key to stopping or controlling that would be to start committing mentally ill people who show violent actions. Every incident we have seen has been carried out by a mentally defective person, their actions were well documented but, nothing was done to contain them. They would have carried out their rampage guns or not. Obama wants an unarmed citizenry to make his take over easy!

    A few observations from someone who has actually shot skeet. The Gun is pointed in an almost horizontally parallel position with the ground, Skeet is UP in the air, the weapons is not shouldered correctly, it would hurt badly, you cannot see his face at all, so it could be anyone shooting. The gun shows exhaust but the chamber is open…..Hmmm.

    Some of you younger folks might not remember this, but there was a time when the media questioned Power. No, really, once upon a time, the media saw it as its duty to be forever questioning and skeptical of Power, especially when Power was in pursuit of more power.

    Because the photo is odd, some are asking perfectly legitimate questions.
    But not the media.
    What did the media do?

    Because the media no longer questions or is skeptical of Power, and instead sees its role as protector of The State, the media mocked those who were skeptical.

    Technically speaking, the White House can take their “no photoshopping” restriction and pound sand. The photo is in the public domain. Flickr even has a special, “United States Government Work” license for such works, that links here:

    Sarah had better give him some lessons. She kills things bigger than michelle obama and without the bangs. Well maybe not THAT big.

    Has anyone told the White House that SKEET is urban slang 4 male ejaculation? I thought the press said he was a hip President!

  • Stephen M Gray

    Well the WH also put out a statement in August that he spent his birthday on the 4th playing a round of golf, and then spent a quiet time at Camp David. So which is it?

    So it’s appropriate to release a photo 6 months AFTER it happened to what? help promote his gun restrictions? Irony at it’s best!

    Skeet straight out infront of him? Low flying skeet I suppose. And how the hell can he see down the sights with the gun so high, not to mention his cheek smashed on the butt of the rifle, that’ll give yah a black eye quick. Looks way to fake, doctored at the very least.

    Is he shooting or smoking that thing?

    • BeeKaaay

      Yes.

  • Sandra123456

    What is the smoke coming out of the top of the barrel? Something’s odd.

    What’s he shooting at? It certainly wouldn’t be a clay pidgeon. And what’s with the gigantic head gear? Ever heard of ear plugs? Point of fact…. the plume of smoke coming of the tip of the barrel is photoshopped, guaranteed. Here’s why I say so. Notice that this picture was taken at the exact moment of discharge after pulling the trigger….there is no sign or effect of recoil from firing the shotgun…..his position is stationary like a statue. In other words, it’s a staged photo. To capture this “photo” as shown, the camera would have had a shutter speed of .5 seconds per frame and what would be the purpose behind that? It’s staged.

    • BeeKaaay

      The news pic did not show what he was shooting at. I bet the target was a conservative.

    We already KNOW the WH Photoshopped it — it’s in the Exif meta data at http://www.flickr.com/photos/whitehouse/8436110735/meta/in/photostream :
    Software Adobe Photoshop CS6 (Macintosh)
    Date and Time (Modified) 2013:02:01 17:11:38
    Artist Pete Souza

    The only question is HOW it was Photoshopped. (Personally, I agree that it’s more staged than edited. If they were going to modify it in any major way, they wouldn’t have left him looking so lame.)

    is it me, or is there only one choke tube in that shotgun? the lower barrel looks empty.

    Camp David Skeet Range. Take note of the 8′ fence on the range.

    Figures, he would shoot a shotgun LEFT HANDED. Maybe he’s LEFT EYE DOMINANT. Think that might explain a few things? He’s just LEFT EVERTYTHING…. Most people that are left handed wear their watches on their right arm. Is anyone else noticing these things? Didn’t know there were compensated double barrel shotguns, wouldn’t that have an effect on the choke? That is assuming the upwards jet of smoke is from the gun he’s shooting.

    I would really love to see the time stamp on that pic….

  • wjf3

    Brass tip on the shotgun doesn’t that signify a non operational weapon? I know it does in many states. And since when does a shotgun have muzzle break? Only a wuss would need a muzzle break,but I guess if you are wearing your Moms jeans, just the thought of wearing his dead Moms jeans is creepy to the utmost.
