Source: Obama ‘Couldn’t Have Been More Uncomfortable’ at Skeet Shooting Event

Photo Credit: jurvetsonIn a recent interview with The New Republic, President Obama claimed that he goes skeet shooting “all the time” while at Camp David. But a source who said he has been to the retreat on a half-dozen visits with the president said that’s not the case, Fox News reported Wednesday.

“The only time he shot skeet was for President’s Cup,” the unnamed source told Fox News, referring to a shooting competition tradition involving the president’s Marine guards. “I was there. He stayed for about five minutes, and couldn’t leave fast enough.”

The source told Fox that shooting skeet “is very hard.”


“Especially for someone not used to guns … He couldn’t have been more uncomfortable,” the source said.

Complicating matters is a report at the Washington Post fact-checker that noted Obama’s silence on his alleged fondness for the sport.

    “…couldn’t have been more uncomfortable”? No surprise there. He throws like a wussy too.

    A picture is worth a thousand words! He’s holding the gun LEVEL and looks like he’s SO UNCOMFORTABLE.

    For a guy who {shoots Skeet all the time} someone should show him how to hold the shotgun against his shoulder !

    The photo of Obama shooting skeet is as fake as Obama, his handlers, the henchmen and women in his regime. They have committed another fraud.
    It is such a fake and so obviously so. Skeet are launched and shot up in the air above the shooter’s head for safety reasons. Smoke doesn’t come out of the front and one side of the barrel at the same time.
    A real photo of a real skeet shooter by a photographer worth his pay would be done from an angle off to the side and in front of the shooter, or from behind to show the shooter and the skeet in flight or being shattered in the air. A video would be even better.
    Obama, his handlers, the henchmen and women in his regime believe everyone else is stupid. Those who voted for Obama and still support him are stupid including his handlers and henchmen and women.
    Obama must be stupid for allowing this to have been done along with all the other stupid things done since he first appeared on the national scene at the DNC in 2004.

      If skeet are sent out from a tower, they won’t necessarily be thrown so high. Trap shooting will throw clays higher. The shotgun smoke bothered me as well. Although it would seem strange, the barrel could have been ported to reduce recoil. I am not familiar with any models that have such, but it could have been sent to a company that does that type modification. I think he would have needed all the reduction he could get with the way he held the shotgun. You don’t hold the recoil pad above your shoulder. That just makes what recoil you get that much worse. Standing so straight up may not have helped either. I always lean into the shot slightly to move my whole body. If there wasn’t a ported barrel on that shotgun, I’d say he took a jolt from that shot. It probably hurt him and he didn’t even get close to hitting the intended target. That’s probably why he was in a hurry to get out of there. He needed to have a good cry and have Chris Matthews hold him and caress him.

    photo-op,photo-shop, when was the last time you saw anyone shoot a 12ga. that remained at a perfect 90 degree angle, considering that skeet fly, who knows ? maybe he shoots skeet downhill, to match the way he runs this country.
