Skeet Birthers Freak Out Over President Obama Shooting Picture



By: Sarah JonesFeb. 2nd, 2013more from Sarah Jones

That didn’t take long. Skeet birthers are now a real thing. David Plouffe thought he was making a funny, but no.

This morning the White House released a photo of President Obama skeet shooting to prove his claim that yes, he does skeet shoot. That picture prompted David Plouffe to tweet with glee, “Attn skeet birthers. Make our day – let the photoshop conspiracies begin!”

The very, very scared boys over at Breitbart are complying, leading with headlines like, “Media Follows Obama’s Orders to Mock Skeet-Gate Skeptics.” Remember when the press used to question power? The Breitbart writer asks sadly.

According to Breitbart, on the way to steal all of your guns, Obama is trying to fool the public into thinking he’s moderate on gun safety so he put out a picture of him skeet shooting…

Only, there’s something funny about the angle of that gun. Do read on:

2. Plouffe completely baited them...and they took the bait

It's no wonder the Obama team schooled their asses in two elections. They're predictable fools.

3. Obama could show up

at their houses and offer a competition (if the damn idiots don't shoot him first, I'd imagine that there would be at least one of them that would think it) and they'd still think that it's a fake or something like that.

4. We Still Have Thousands of Troops in Afghanistan, Unemployment is Stalled at 7.9%...

more people in the US are being killed each year through gun violence than in any other developed nation.

But what's on the top of these people's list? Whether or not the President actually skeet shoots. As if it's really an issue the Obama hate sites like Brietbart can gin up into something the majority of US Citizens really care about? Sure, the red-meat, knuckle-draggers harping about taking their country back and stopping Obama from taking their guns by overthrowing the government will eat it up. But they didn't need a PR picture of Obama shooting skeet - they were already delusional.

6. oh, puleeze. Anybody who can forge birth certificates and 50 year old newspaper

birth announcements certainly can fake a photo. Face it, it's not like the gummint didn't fake a landing on the moon or anything...

7. I thought surely somebody would mention his cheekbone resting on the stock.

If you are shooting anything with a kick, that's a great way to crack your face.

16. Looks like a ported 20 gauge. Not a whole lot of kick there.

Anyway looks as if it is more on the side of his cheekbone. If anything, seems like he might get a little skin burn from the stock movement

8. Here's a couple of reality based Tweets for the sad breitbarter..

Tweet from.. Eric Boehlert @EricBoehlert

context: The WP that demanded photos of Obama's skeet shooting was the same WP that ran endless front-page WH warnings about WMD's


M$M..

Keith Boykin @keithboykin

They can take George Bush's words on weapons of mass destruction but they can't take President Obama's word on his own weapon?


Thanks for the link, DV

13. Where is Trump, indeed!?!

And Orly. Has she filed a suit about this yet? Paging Sheriff Joe! You need to send out a posse on this! God, it's fun to play with them. In a troubled world, we need to be grateful that these people are here to brighten our day. And make Jon Stewart's job ridulously easy.

15. "maybe we need more secret service around him to protect others when he is at Camp David,"

I assume this statement was made with no intent of irony.......

Got two words for that teabagger......Dick Cheney
