    “The photograph may not be manipulated in any way and may not be used in commercial or political materials, advertisements, emails, products, promotions that in any way suggests approval or endorsement of the President, the First Family, or the White House.”

    Sounds like a Double-Dog Dare to me.

    Notice the picture is taken as the wad is just leaving the barrel. They used this frame from the video because the next frame shows him knocked to the ground and wimpering from the kick…

    August 4th? He was “skeet shooting” on his birfday?

    Honestly, this guy is so incredibly thin skinned. He has to release of photo of himself PROVING he shot a gun once.

    So, apparently, because Obama shot a gun (once) he therefore has the right to infringe on the 2nd Amendment. Am I getting this right?

    Let’s see if we can get him to release his college records by laughing and making fun of his claim that he went to Harvard.

    From Gateway Pundit:

    “An anonymous gun expert, who did not wish to be identified, had this to say about Obama’s shooting style:

    “Either the recoil kicked his ass or he doesn’t know to lean into the shot when shooting. He shoots a gun like he throws a baseball. That’s a ported shot gun. (holes – venting – at the end of the barrel. Less recoil.) You port really high power firearms to reduce the kick when fired. It helps with control and is less punishing. The smoke coming out of the top of the barrel lessens the muzzle jump and recoil. It means he’s a panzy. And it still threw him back. It also means he never shoots a gun.”

    What’s to stop us from surrounding this photo with others that make him look like the panzy that he is?
    Or ignore this photo and make up our own that make fun of his “skeet shooting” experience?

    Did they hire somebody with high frame rate gear to capture this? It looks like a nerf round being shot!

    One of my guesses after this enlargement tells me that the rounded light-toned material at the muzzle could be the granular plastic to keep the shot round:

    -But the velocity of the port venting looks way too low, and the gas is usually still behind the cup under the plastic wad as the petals holding the plastic/shot mix just begin to emerge.

    Here it looks like the gas, which has no reason to be ahead of the payload, is only coming around the far side and bottom, as if the pressure was so low the cup was not even expanding and sealing the bore.

    This is too weird, can anybody locate some good hi-res high speed photography of such a moment in the life of a shotshell?

    The photo of Dear Leader Obaloney shooting is way too perfect. Photoshopped to the max. Shouldn’t that gun be pointed up?
    Reminds me of a staged Putin photo op.

    Diann, apparently shooting a gun also gives him the right to violate the First Amendment.

    He’s probably shooting Trap not Skeet. Skeet’s a lot tuffer for an in experienced shooter. If it were Trap he is probably lined up for one of those straight going away shots.
    How can they prove this is Obama. I just see a left handed light skinned black guy shooting a shot gun. Not a lot of distinguishing facial features available.

    What’s wrong with the picture is that it has rewritten the Second Amendment to say:

    A well regulated militia being necessary for the promotion of the sport of skeet shooting, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
