…but White House Press Secretary Jay Carney doesn’t know how often he does so, nor whether photographic evidence exists. I wonder why that would be.

…yeah…right…and I’m a sex object!

KOOLAID2 on January 28, 2013 at 2:29 PM

Yeah scooter I’m sure he does so why didn’t giggles bring up his love for the hobby in 2008-2012?

Because we are such a gun hating nation it would bear cost right?

harlekwin15 on January 28, 2013 at 2:33 PM

He has a photographer with him all the time.

Cindy Munford on January 28, 2013 at 2:34 PM

Somebody should ask Carney if Obama knows what a skeet is.

Bitter Clinger on January 28, 2013 at 2:35 PM

You reichwingers need to relax. Obama obviously knows his way around guns – otherwise there’s no way he could have shot Osama.

gwelf on January 28, 2013 at 2:37 PM

Well… “Skeet” is street slang for “ejaculate”.

MechanicalBill on January 28, 2013 at 2:40 PM

I doubt Barry does skeet shooting or Duck Hunting, but I expect his dog does laugh at him…

Gingotts on January 28, 2013 at 2:42 PM

I would like to know if Obama knows the difference between Skeet, Trap, and Sporting Clays. But ya know, I think Obama may have misspoke. I’m sure he meant to say that he “goes Snipe hunting all the time”.

SpiderMike on January 28, 2013 at 2:42 PM

I’ll bet he would be a great one to take snipe hunting. What do you think? Get Spin and Marty to take him, in his mom jeans.

I get the reference, but I doubt Barry’s dog laughs at him. He doesn’t want to end up next to the mashed potatoes and arugula at dinner.

Obama goes on Snipe hunts all the time too.

MechanicalBill on January 28, 2013 at 2:40 PM

“Skeet” is actually a form of birth control practiced by the African-American tribes of North America near the beginning of the 21st Centruy. Visionaries of the time (such as Lil Jon and Nelly) recognized the inevitable and everpresent danger of overpopulation in their land and decided to take action. They discovered an ancient form of birth control used by their ancestors that involved “pulling out and shooting” (much like skeet shooting) during sexual intercourse, as to not impregnate the female, or “biatch”.

Sorry I want video evidence – you can’t fake competency, mental involvement or body language. Newbs stick out like mad. I would actually agree to meet his Highness at any US military base with my kids and he can pick who he’d like to shoot against.

2nd Ammendment Mother on January 28, 2013 at 2:54 PM

He shot a guy named Skeet back in ChiTown for trying to grab a doobie away from him. He’s having flashbacks.

IndieDogg on January 28, 2013 at 2:55 PM

I would love to see one of the reporters ask the president what gage of shotgun he uses, then ask him about the type of action.

tommer74 on January 28, 2013 at 2:55 PM

Always bring a left handed smoke shifter when going snipe hunting eh barry? Gotta eat those things without getting the smoke in yer eyes, hmmm hmm, good.

Oooh, and I bet Obama shot Osama with one of those scaaarrrryyyy AR-15s on full auto.

Nutstuyu on January 28, 2013 at 3:00 PM

Well I don’t doubt he does. But maybe he’s not too good at it.

verbaluce on January 28, 2013 at 1:50 PM

So? We have pictures of him throwing a baseball and bowling. He sucks at both of those.

Resist We Much on January 28, 2013 at 3:01 PM

The President released this video showing that he does, in fact, go shooting: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x-daxzVxrQI

Meric1837 on January 28, 2013 at 3:02 PM

Biden said the other day that shotguns are deadlier than “assault weapons”. It’s time to ban shotguns.

juliesa on January 28, 2013 at 3:08 PM

Fantasy news conference questions and answers:

“Mr. Pesident, which house do you find the easiest.”

“Oh, the House of Representatives, now that Boehner is in charge!”

“No, sir, I mean which house in Skeet shooting.”

“Hey, I only play outdoor Skeet – indoor is too dangerous.”

drunyan8315 on January 28, 2013 at 3:11 PM

It must be hard to hit a target when you hold your shotgun sideways. I’d really like to see photos.

Ronnie on January 28, 2013 at 3:12 PM

I think I’m learning how to speak Obamian. He said three things:

1. He has in fact fired a gun at some point in his life.

2. His guests at Camp David go “up there” to shoot skeet all the time. “We” may mean members of the his entourage, but not necessarily Obama himself.

3. The “girls” do not participate. It’s unclear if Michelle is included in this group called “girls”, but I’m guessing she is, sweetie.

What Obama said may be technically true, but it could lead people to make broader conclusions. Think Politifact will fact check this one? That type of thing was a really big deal to them in 2012.

forest on January 28, 2013 at 3:16 PM

I know a guy in Hawaii who is *outstanding* with PhotoShop.

He can do anything you like.

Pictures of:

You meeting Churchill
You having tea with Ghandi
You holding up your missing Hawaiian Birth Certificate.

Surely he can produce a photo of Barky hunting wild skeet.

CorporatePiggy on January 28, 2013 at 3:18 PM

Well now. Obama apparently shoots skeet and the lapdog media loves it and eats it all up. Ew. Who am I to judge? Whatever floats your boat, I guess.

pt on January 28, 2013 at 3:22 PM

And I’m Little Bo Peep.

The Rogue Tomato on January 28, 2013 at 3:32 PM

but White House Press Secretary Jay Carney doesn’t know how often he does so

Why doesn’t he know? Obama said it, himself. All the time.

The Rogue Tomato on January 28, 2013 at 3:34 PM

One of the urban slang definitions of skeet shooting is jacking someone off. I have no trouble believing Obama does that all the time with his entourage, especially the older men. I heard he has a hankerin’ for older men.

The Rogue Tomato on January 28, 2013 at 3:37 PM

Alrighty then, how about a shoot-off between the Bamster and Dick Cheney then. Just to test his firearms knowledge, safety, and accuracy of course.

antipc on January 28, 2013 at 3:38 PM

They should have asked, “Does the President have a good reason for why the public should believe it?”

Dusty on January 28, 2013 at 3:48 PM

Re urban definitions of skeet: “Barack Onanba”

apostic on January 28, 2013 at 3:52 PM

And later we’ll hear the Pres say his abilities are, like his bowling, at a “Special Olympics” level. (So wrong for multiple reasons….)

apostic on January 28, 2013 at 3:54 PM

Nutstuyu on January 28, 2013 at 2:53 PM

lol. I knew HA was a place of higher education.

arnold ziffel on January 28, 2013 at 4:11 PM

I do not believe that the Secret Service would allow the President to shoot skeet because it would interfere with their sensors that pick up explosions and gunshots.

When PBHO visited the Phoenix area after the Giffords shooting, a local space industry company had to delay its ordnance testing by two days because it was being picked up on the sensors. The testing was going on inside a large building a few miles from where he would appear.

Somehow I don’t think a Video game in the White House Arcade
room counts…

ToddPA on January 28, 2013 at 4:48 PM

Some interesting videos of Presidents shooting skeet at Camp David…funny thing there’s none of Obama though. There is one of Jackie Keenedy trying it.

Deanna on January 28, 2013 at 5:01 PM

There’s no warmer feeling than to know you have a freezer full of clay pigeons you’ve shot yourself.

He must golf by day and shoot skeet by night.

Some reporter should ask him if a golfer yells, “fore,” when he’s sent a golf ball down range, then what should a shooter yell when he wants a clay pigeon to be launched into range.

Bet he can’t answer.

“Mr. President, which of these four doesn’t fit: Orvis, Purdey, Beretta, Browning, Uzi.”

Limpet6 on January 28, 2013 at 5:27 PM

Obama and the truth are never present simultaneously.

tom daschle concerned on January 28, 2013 at 6:00 PM

Then he is violating his own principles.

Everyone knows you don’t need a GUN to kill skeet.

StubbleSpark on January 28, 2013 at 6:38 PM

“Mr. President, which of these four doesn’t fit: Orvis, Purdey, Beretta, Browning, Uzi.”

Limpet6 on January 28, 2013 at 5:27 PM

Well, I have to admit you got me on that one.
I’ve never heard of Orvis or Purdey.

I have direct current relationships with the names Marlin, Mossberg, Windham, Smith & Wesson, and Kalashnikov.

Especially since you said “these four” and there are 5 names.

dentarthurdent on January 28, 2013 at 6:44 PM

Orvis, Purdey

If you have to ask you can’t afford one. I don’t ask either.

I thought he didn’t like Camp David. Hard to shoot skeet if you are never there.

I don’t think the shooter in this video is President Obama. The mole is on the right side of his face.

Well, at least this lie probably isn’t the biggest one told by this administration.
