Shockingly, No Evidence That Obama Has Ever Shot Skeet

 The evidence suggests that until Obama had access to a shooting range as president, he never went skeet shooting. He certainly did not speak like a politician who had once used a firearm.

But it is also curious that the White House refuses to provide any documentary evidence that he actually used the shooting range at Camp David, since he claims he uses it “all the time,” or that a presidential friend has not come forward to confirm the president’s comments.

 We live in suspicious times and the president lives in a media fishbowl. That’s the way it is. In the meantime, we do not have enough information to make a ruling one way or the other. We are eager to see a photograph, or hear from someone who saw him at the skeet range, to put this matter to rest.

    In his defense, Barry thinks that "shooting skeet" refers to something quite distinct from blasting clay pigeons with a shotgun.

    The prez is more than a skeet hunter uaing a simple shotgun, big O is an experienced hunter of terrorists. He can dispatch a drone thousands of miles away to make top enemies of the US look they have been barbecued.

    Ah, that explains everything. He was actually sending drones after the clay pigeons. Do you think he made a list?
