Ever since Barack Obama told the press that he shoots skeet at Camp David – "we do skeet shooting" is the technical term used by the President — there have been questions about Obama's true commitment to recreational shooting. But with the release of an official White House photo, the conversation has rapidly moved from herp to derp:
As a lifelong shotgunner, I immediately smelled a rat. Nothing in the photo looks right and upon closer examination, it is a complete fraud…Without a doubt, this photo has been doctored for whatever nefarious reason. It appears as though the shooter was merely holding a gun with the smoke being added in later.
It doesn't help that Obama appears to be shooting from a grassy knoll.
Yes, we've reached a point where conspiracy theorists are demanding the long-form skeet certificate. It's not like there's anything more substantive to criticize the Obama administration for…
A confidential Justice Department memo concludes that the U.S. government can order the killing of American citizens if they are believed to be "senior operational leaders" of al-Qaida or "an associated force" — even if there is no intelligence indicating they are engaged in an active plot to attack the U.S.
Everything is going to make more sense when "Operation Skeet" is revealed to be the name of our drone program.
