Jensen: Obama Skeets the Truth

By Rick Jensen

"I do skeet shooting."

Of course you do, Mr. President.

"I do skeet shooting all the time."

Which is why skeet shooters (not "doers" of skeet or "skeeters" as you call them) took a quick look at your photo and noted your aim is straight ahead, not upward where the clay target would be. They also noticed you're pictured using a gun designed for trap shooting, wearing dark sunglasses on a cloudy day, holding the gun incorrectly, your shoulder shows no reaction to what should be the gun's recoil, and a few other oddities.

There's also the White House press corps reports stating you played golf all day before flying to Camp David to "relax" after an exhausting birthday on the links. No mention of skeet. It was predictable.

It also doesn't really matter. What does matter is Americans on Facebook, Twitter, radio and at the office coffee dispenser laughingly knew a photo, real or otherwise, would pop up as soon as you decided it was so important during your gun control campaign to defend a comment you made to a little-known political outlet.

They parody your duplicity, beginning with your proselytized bipartisanship. While Republicans presented you with solutions for the rising costs of health care, you went to the press to say Republicans brought no ideas. The truth would have been to say they brought no ideas you liked or wanted to incorporate, until it was election time. Then you shouted to the world that your plan was based on conservative ideas. Your left-of-center supporters said, "Yeah. So there," smiling because they enjoyed playing along with what they saw as a big joke on the right.

The problem, Mr. Obama, is that you do this so often that one may reasonably presume you don't get the joke because, to you, it's serious. You must really think you're fooling people simply because your friendly press doesn't call you on it and defends you with so-called "fact checkers."

Why else would you ruin the career of Susan Rice if you didn't think you could get away with fooling the American people with a fictitious story about a video being responsible for a carefully planned attack on our Benghazi mission?

Why else would you reward Goldman Sachs executives with cushy government jobs instead of prosecuting them for violating investment laws and wreaking havoc on our economy?

Why else would you give billions of tax dollars to companies bundling campaign contributions for you and your party when your own financial analysts predicted they were facing bankruptcy?

Why else would you secure profitable deals for your friends at pharmaceutical companies while pushing an "affordable' health care plan that now puts in peril 500,000 children whose families would otherwise have been able to afford major medical health insurance through their employers?

Why else?

Because you really are getting away with it.

Take, for example, the federal appellate court that found you guilty of betraying your oath to the Constitution. It's not like you're going to jail or going to be impeached. There is no tangible price to pay for your duplicity.

On the lighter side, please reconsider the phrase, "I do skeet shooting." Skeet shooters don't "do" shooting. They "shoot," as in, "let's go shoot skeet."

In an effort to be helpful, Mr. President, here are some other phrases that would indicate the speaker doesn't really participate in said activities:

"I do bowling"

"I do archery. Yes, I really do bows and arrows."

"I do philately'

"I do bipartisan."

      and if there is no lie to fit whatever situation comes along, he makes up a situation for which a good lie will fit!

    He can’t even tell the truth about this which is no big deal. If you skeet shoot fine and if you don’t that is also fine but you don’t have to lie about something this insignificant. You apparently have done any shooting over the past four years because you can be sure that you would have had a photo op. Now if we were talking about golfing ALL the time that is believable, what was it over 100 times in the past 4 years? Why does he have to lie over such unimportant things or is he such a compulsive liar he doesn’t know the difference between the truth and a lie?

      Absolutely right. My feeling is that he does not have any kind of life (other than maybe some golf) to draw upon and he has to make stuff up as he goes in order to have some semblance of being seen as a ‘regular guy’. He is the furthest thing from anything ‘regular’ that we have ever seen in this country as a leader? of the country. May God help us when we finally find out all the answers!

      I have never been skeet shooting. I have been hunting SEVERAL times and really enjoy it. And I am also a woman. But as someone who goes hunting, I know you don’t point a gun straight to “DO’ skeet shooting unless you are waiting for the clay target to hit the ground before you fire the gun.
      I can’t understand why obama wants to lie so much. Again, I would like to know the true facts about Benghazi and Fast and Furious. I know the families of the victims would like to know also.

      Lying about something insignificant is a trait of a pathological liar. They lie about the smallest inconsequential things, when the truth would do just as well. It’s as though they cannot help themselves. This is Obama.

    If the media do not call him out for every lie he utters, why don’t the Republicans call him out? Why do Republicans let him get away with it? If John McCain who always seem to be on talk shows on Sunday TV do not call him out, why not the Tea Party? Until Obama is called out every time he lies to the public, he will continue to do so and the gullible public will just believe him. If Romney called him out every time Obama lied, he would be our President now.

      I totally agree. In fact, during the campaign, I thought either Romney or some other Republican should have bird-dogged Obama after every one of his campaign speeches. They should have set up an identical speaking schedule, to be presented right after Obama got off the stage. Some articulate Republican (if one could’ve been found!) should have scheduled a rebuttal speech right after Obama’s, on the same platform stage, to address every one of his lies one by one and present the truth. After doing that a few times with Obama knowing it was going to happen, he might have been intimidated into speaking the truth.

    They say he had a great life back in Chicago. He is known as “Bath House Barry” by all the local homosexual’s. Now Moochie don’t care, as long as she can take multi million dollar vacation. The MSM know this, but heck most of them are Gay also, so the cover up continues.

      Yep, you’re right about his Chicago life! There are a lot of things that could be added to his “do” list but most of them are immoral or illegal. We do know that he liked to have old white men “do” him at Man’s Country.

    That picture was so squirrely-looking it was funny. I also noticed in the picture that he doesn’t appear to be following Michelle’s eating and exercise advice. His shirt displayed the beginnings of a paunch belly. Perhaps Moochelle should start at home before she goes around preaching to the rest of us.

    At least Obama doesn’t drink or do drugs to excess any more (and I know he did both as Michelle and marriage cannot be explained any other way).

    Come to think of it that (Michelle) might explain how he manages to absorb the recoil of a shotgun so well that it can’t be observed.

    Why has the Republican Party not sued him and the DNC for deceptive marketing and false advertising?

    Additionally, since his Executive Orders included using the Centers for Disease Control and medical personnel it is probable that he should be forced to adhere to FDA labeling rules:

    “The U.S. Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) defines ‘labeling’ as all labels and other written, printed, or graphic matter upon any article or any of its containers or wrappers, or accompanying such article. The term ‘accompanying’ is interpreted liberally to mean more than physical association with the food product. It extends to posters, tags, pamphlets, circulars, booklets, brochures, instructions, websites, etc. “

    Silence is GOLDEN when you are lying! What a silly thing to lie about and then, of course, get caught in the lie. I’m by no means a “skeeter” and knew that the gun was aimed the wrong way unless “skeets” jump out of rabbit holes….or mole holes. Ya gotta wonder…..did he feel embarrassment or…knew, of course, the liberal press would blow it off…you know, kinda like they blew off Rubio for taking a drink of water. Silly little teenagers, those liberals…so simple minded.
