Obama Goes Skeet Shooting "All the Time"? Not Really!


As Katie Pavlich reminds us this morning, in a ploy to get more people on his anti-gun bandwagon, Obama claimed to the New Republic last weekend that he "goes skeet shooting all the time" at Camp David. Immediately everyone was skeptical of the claim and even White House Press Secretary Jay Carney couldn't give reporters a solid number of times Obama has gone skeet shooting, nor could he produce a single photo of Obama doing it.

It turns out, surely to no one's surprise, Obama's "all the time" means ... just "once" - and it was for about 5 minutes:

"The only time he shot skeet was for President's Cup," said the source, referring to a shooting competition tradition involving the presidential Marine guards. "I was there. He stayed for about five minutes, and couldn't leave fast enough."

Skeet shooting "is very hard," said the source. "Especially for someone not used to guns ... He couldn't have been more uncomfortable."
