    Personally, I think Obama may have tried once and didn't think shooting was for him. Otherwise, we would see pics from the White House promoting his expertise.

    President Obama recently told the New Republic magazine, "Up at Camp David, we do skeet shooting all the time." Today, after some suggested the president's claim might not be true, the New Republic tweeted a picture supposedly proving that Obama has gone skeet shooting:

    The only problem: the picture is a fake, and not hosted on the White House's website.

    Within minutes the magazine had deleted the tweet and admitted its mistake.

  2. A scene you might see on the Southside of Chicago on any given day.

    He throws a baseball like a girl I doubt he could handle a gun.

    Even if that were real, it is an embarrassing pic anyway.

    Erin Burnett at CNN wasn't too sure about Obama's skeet shooting claims either.

    So, if there are "Truthers" and there are "Birthers" are those who question Obama's claim that he shoots skeet all the time called "Skeeters?"

    “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.
