There isn't a facepalm that exists to properly convey how utterly stupid this whole thing is.

Especially since he only issued that picture because the derpers insisted he show proof.

... and the GOPthinks this passes for intelligent debate on major policies issues. Meanwhile the NRA and their paid-for legislators continue to oppose actual scientific research on gun violence.

I wonder if this is why the only way the GOP can win elections outside the low-IQ SEC states is by gerrymandering and voter suppression.

Enjoy the dustbin of history, retards.

Well, he did admit to smoking weed back in high school.

For one thing, he said, "When I was a kid, I inhaled."

"That was the point," Obama told an audience of magazine editors.

I foresee this for the GOP in about 30-40 more years.

The funny part is that you take one look at the picture and tell how thoroughly unfamiliar and uncomfortable he is with a gun.  It's a staged photo-op, and he looks like the buffoon that he is.

Yeah, like that wasn't predictable.  These people made up their minds long ago.  No NRA-hugger is going to be convinced in the least that there is anything but some kind of massive conspiracy going on.

There was this one girl on my bus in junior high who just caught immense amounts of shiat all the time. She was super socially awkward and her parents dressed her very old fashioned and frumpy and she was just a total misfit. The "popular" girls on the bus would make fun of her clothes and tease her and tell her things she ought to wear instead. And one day she tried to dress like they told her to. And then they made fun of her even more mercilessly for trying.

The only way to win with bullies is to ignore them.

   there are actually douchebags who think that whether or not Obama skeet shoots or has ever even held a gun before is pertinent.

Wasn't the picture actually taken last August, even before the election or latest mass shootings or new proposals for gun control?

It's almost like he KNEW that there would be a number of high-profile mass shootings in the near future and he wanted to make sure he was pictured holding a gun beforehand.

It's gotta be a calculated troll to make them look like total morans.

Not that doing so is hard but they must have known any comment about the President skeet shooting would send the right into a tizzy and then producing a photo of him actually doing it would drive them even crazier.

Hey Republicans, it's better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool than to open it and leave no doubt.

Or something like that.

why would Obummer pander he already won the 2nd election he's dictator for life now remember? that was the whole doomsday scenario

I thought it was a picture of a random hipster from Brooklyn, or perhaps the greatest teamup up of all time.

Seriously, Fark, eat my balls with those stupid sponsored ads. There's one less reason to waste my time here. Cancel my account, ban me, whatever, but you can ram those ads.

Which is why Obama should have never engaged with them in the first place.  The minute that you stoop to your oponent's neanderthal level of debate. you've already lost.

It's not Skeet-gate, it's Skeet-ghazi.  Any faux scandal should end in ghazi.

Farking stupid.

As one of the many Fark gunnuts, let me say this 'controversy' is farking ridiculous. He looks as awkward and uncomfortable as a noob shooting a firearm can be expected to look. Obama troll? Who cares. Meaningless.

Obama aides even coined a term for the skeptics - calling them "skeeters."

"For all the skeeters, POTUS [president of the United States] shoots clay targets on the range at Camp David on Aug. 4, 2012," White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer said in releasing the photo.


Holy shiat, that is some world-class trolling right there.

"In skeet shooting, you're either shooting high or you're shooting low! This is nothing but pandering to the sportsmen and hunters," Davenport said.

The more I see this idiot the more I'm convinced he is actually a anti-gun plant. This guy is just to stupid to be serious.

He was even handed his ass on fox this morning by the host (forget his name)
 
2013-02-03 01:28:43 PM  
Looks like trap shooting to me. They should call it "trap gate"
They shouldn't  have released that photo I guess, because  it has nothing to do with the debate, but it's not worth talking about for more than 5 seconds anyway.

Wow. you guys are nuts.

That was taken before this whole thing came down? You believe he went back in time and did a photo op in the past because he knew they were going to demand a photo?

WE DEMAND PROOF OBAMA SKEET SHOOTS!!

Obama : ok here is a picture.

OBAMA IS HORRIBLE FOR GIVING WHAT WE DEMANDED FOR HIM TO GIVE US!!!

How so exactly?

So you are saying he staged photos so he could say he skeet shoots and camp david because he knew they would demand proof and he could show these pictures and that would then let Obama take everyones guns?
 
2013-02-03 01:32:05 PM  

dogdaze: Team Obama trolls the wingnuts yet again.


Pretty much. Dude is a master at it now. Say he shoots skeet, critics go "full retard". Release photo showing of him shooting skeet, critics go "uber-retard".

In the end as with the birth certificate, President Obama comes off looking like the adult in the discussion.

The gun nuts were demanding proof. Now that they have what they demanded they are attacking Obama for giving them exactly what they demanded.
