Call me a “Skeeter”; that’s the new White House term to denigrate anyone who does not believe that Obama shoots Skeet. Unlike Arugula, Obama has never eaten Skeet, does not know what the “Bag limit” is, or like his birth certificate and school records, he has not released his Score.
While it “maybe” a valid picture of Obama with a shot gun, it is a Black man that shoots left handed, who does not know what he is doing. Safety glasses and ear muffs cover his identity; although how did they ever find ear muffs for those Dumbo ears I do not know.
It is also definite that it did not take place on his “51st Birthday. How do I know? According to AP and the original White house press releases:
Obama Birthday Weekend: President Celebrates 51st With Golf Game, Break From 2012 Campaign
By KEN THOMAS 08/04/12 06:11 PM ET
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama celebrated his 51st birthday Saturday with a round of golf and a quiet weekend at Camp David, taking a break from campaigning three months before Election Day.
Obama, wearing a white golf shirt, khaki pants and sunglasses, boarded Marine One at Andrews Air Force Base after about six hours on the golf course before heading to Camp David. He was joined by a small group of friends and aides that included White House chef Sam Kass, a frequent golf partner.
Note the time and date Only AP can write time in that format and have no one question it; as he left the White house for Camp David at 6:11 PM ET. Camp David is 62 miles from the White house with Approximately 1 hour travel time; arrival at 7:11 PM ET ( earliest time possible) Sun set at 8:15 PM ET just 1 hour and 4 minutes to get to the Skeet range and shoot a round. The most ardent Skeet shooter quits at dark. While Obama may try to shoot one for a photo op, he does not care about it enough to rush to shoot a round.
Also a quick review of the Photo shows the Gun too high on the shoulder, aimed straight ahead, too low for Skeet and too high for Trap. It looks like he is aiming for a 6 foot rabbit named Harvey. It may be Obama, they only showed him from the waist up so you could not see him wet his pants when the shotgun went off.
I am not an expert Skeet shooter myself, my score runs around 18 with 12 Gauge, I do have a friend who shoots a 25 about once a month and I have shot with some of the top women dove shooters in the state, yes I got beat silly.
But then the 2nd is not about Skeet shooting, is it?
Just my thoughts for today.
