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

Seriously it took a week to find “proof” @PressSec and Aug 4 is not all the time

I'm glad using a firearm is not an abstract theoretical concept to President Obama. But his proposals are still mostly grandstanding.

We can’t wait for The New Republic to breathlessly tweet the evidence.
Communications director Dan Pfeiffer uses his official White House account to tweet proof “For all the ‘skeeters.'”
For all the "skeeters": POTUS shoots clay targets on the range at Camp David on Aug. 4, 2012. http://t.co/Eq3Z6k9R

Former Obama adviser Plouffe went even further, calling skeptics “skeet birthers.”
Attn skeet birthers. Make our day – let the photoshop conspiracies begin! http://t.co/fBCWx0dW

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.
Wait. We can’t alter or photoshop the Obama, Hunting Hero photo in any way? Or the White House gives us a spanking? What’s the penalty?

Obviously the White House doesn't understand this photo belongs to the taxpayer and can be used however they please http://t.co/fW5zeW7Y
