Barack Hussein Obama is one of us. I mean, he must be. For he himself has this day declared that it to be so.
Notice the high capacity magazine
The Messiah has said it. Thus let it be: He goes skeet shooting all the time.
So, all you guys who are worried about Old Skeeter trampling on the Second Amendment and grabbing all your guns . . . relax. He’s one of us. He’s actually fired something more than a Nerf gun.
There are truthers and birthers. Should there now be a new term for those who are doubting President Obama’s claim that he goes skeet shooting “all the time”? And should that term be skeeter-haters?
CNN’s rising young star Erin Burnett is among those that think so. During a segment on Monday night, Burnett took over two minutes to dissect the president’s shooting claim — and she found it wanting:
“Obama the skeet shooter,” she began. “Yeah, I’m not making this up. I mean, if someone is, it isn’t me.”
She then played the clip of CNN’s Jessica Yellin confronting Press Secretary Jay Carney on the comments, repeatedly asking if a picture of the activity existed and why no one had ever heard of him doing it before. Burnett then turned to a panel where she said there’s “skepticism” among conservatives and non-conservatives about the president’s claim.
“So, now you’re going to say you do it all the time, don’t you have to kind of prove it?” she asked.
On the heels of President O’s assertion that we shoots skeet at Camp David “all the time” (and, perhaps coincidentally after CNN’s Burnett said prove it), the New Republic tweeted a photo of the shotgunner-in-chief actually doing so. One small problem: the picture turned out to be a fake.
There are still some Neanderthals who think the U.S. Constitution is a good thing; who think that the Second Amendment has nothing to do with hunting or (frequent/infrequent) skeet shooting; and to whom liberty is dear and realize that the “Tree of Liberty must be watered from time to time . . . ” well, you know. Skeeter’s no ordinary clay pigeon.
If the President wants to show them that he’s serious, he should just go skeet shooting.
With Dick Cheney.
