White House says “Don’t photoshop this image!”

Larry O’Connor reports for Breitbart.com, Feb. 2, 2013, that the White House has released a picture purporting to show the POS “skeet shooting” at Camp David.  An activity he claims he does “all the time.”

Skeet shooting is a recreational and competitive activity where participants, using shotguns, attempt to break clay disks automatically flung into the air from two fixed stations at high speed from a variety of angles.

Skeet shooting

WH releasing this photo, of course, is a propaganda ploy to show that, while he’s hell bent on gun control, the POS really is a gun sportsman at heart who has nothing against using guns for recreational sports and hunting. Just don’t you ever use guns to — GASP! — defend yourself from punks, criminals, and a tyrannical government.

This is the WH’s caption for the picture above: “President Barack Obama shoots clay targets on the range at Camp David, Md., Saturday, Aug. 4, 2012. (Official White House Photo by Pete Souza)”

Underneath the caption, the White House sternly warns:

“This official White House photograph is being made available only for publication by news organizations and/or for personal use printing by the subject(s) of the photograph. The photograph may not be manipulated in any way and may not be used in commercial or political materials, advertisements, emails, products, promotions that in any way suggests approval or endorsement of the President, the First Family, or the White House.”

The command “The photograph may not be manipulated in any way” is, of course, equivalent to waving a red flag in front of a charging bull.

You’re forbidding the American people from photoshopping that pic? — the same American people who make fun of every President in late night talk shows, newspaper political cartoons, YouTube videos, blogs (like FOTM), and over the office water cooler?

Ha!

FOTM now invites our readers to send us EVERY photoshop image you can find of the photo of the POS skeet-shooting, by giving us the photoshop’s URL via:

  • Putting it in a comment on this thread; or
  • Emailing the URL to us: fellowshipminds@gmail.com

I’ll add photoshopped pix to this post as I receive them.

Eventually, we’ll have a Best Photoshop-of-the-Shooting-POS Contest! The winning photoshopped image will be the pic for FOTM’s next (40th) Caption Contest! :D

Here’s one photoshopped image our DCG found:

  1. LOL You’re right! Go check out IOwnTheWorld.com — There’s even a contest with it! ;-)

  2. I wont comment cause the liberals that read these just beat up anybody that they dont like, but.. answer these questions..
    1- Skeet ranges have houses ahead and to the side of the shooting posts, what are the trees doing where the houses should be?
    2- What is with the smoke going 90* of the muzzle, smoke should follow the load.
    3- What is the brass colored gizmo on the end of the muzzle, I never saw a add on thingy on a $2000 shotgun like this one.
    4- He has a photograper that follows him like a puppy dog, where are the rest of the day pictures, Only one picture was taken that day, Ya right.
    Now lets see how many call me racist for these observations and questions.

  3. @d…H.., the photo was “supposedly” taken at camp David,and more than likely a portable trap machine was used.Dont know where you get that there are supposed to be houses to each side,Camp David is a retreat,its NOT in the middle of a central Maryland development.I wont call you a racist.I dont like either half of him,and of course it depends on what hes trying to support or bs us with that determines what color he is that day.

  4. The 90 degree smoke column on top of the barrel most likely is the result of “porting” .Part of the exhaust gas is directed upwards to lessen the barrel climb.There are also after market muzzle brakes that attach to the end of the barrel.Red Jacket firearms makes an excellent one that has internal threading that mates up to the external barrel threading on shotguns like my Saiga 12.These types also redirect a portion of the exhaust gas rearward to lessen recoil.

    • Um, notice no gas is being reversed at the muzzle brake,,,,,,

      • I am assuming that the shotgun that the steaming pile of S**t is firing has had its barrel ported ( drilled/machined ) at the factory and is not fitted with an after market muzzle brake to vector the gas rearward as well as upwards.

  5. Ummm….correct me if I am wrong please….but…if one is skeet shooting…is not the angle of the gun pointed UP and not straight ahead? Just an observation!

    • Um, very observant! I guess they thought the general public would not know any better,,, and if, “if” in fact he was actually doing so, it would only prove he was a pi$$ poor shot, thank god he doesnt have to aim his nukes,,,

  6. Gaylord Obama of the guns!

  7. Too late. :)

  8. ROFL!

  9. Several things wrong with this picture:
    He’s not in a proper stance, leaning forward to absorb the recoil.
    The butt is not tight up against his shoulder in a proper position.
    It doesn’t look like his sighting down the barrel is correct.
    If he’s firing multiple rounds as in skeet shooting, he will burn his fingers if he leaves them on the barrel as they are.
    Mainly, he looks like a sissy that has never really held a gun.

    I think the reason the WH is saying don’t manipulate it is because it is already a manipulated photo.

  10. ROFL! Sent this to everyone on my list!

  11. You said it Mark! I howled when I saw the “stance.” Please note the direction his hips are facing vs. his aim.

  12. That gun looks like it’s taped together with duck tape! :) He’s such a sissy!!!

  13. I was thinking the same thing about the recoil…especially novice shooter. There is so much wrong with that photograph…and such rich fodder for comment. How is it that among all his “handlers” not one person realized how this would look and had him coached properly…wait a minute. The libs don’t shoot and the shooters were snickering like the centurians in Life of Brian. I can see that gun at auction: “Only fired once!” But we DO have to give him credit for courage in picking it up at all, considering everything he does backfires.

  14. @patriot Angel, in the land of make believe,it can be what ever he wants it to be,up,down forwards,backwards…………

  15. Such a photoshop op: that photo, the centurians, him with a death grip on the trigger, his whole face mashed against the stock, and the thought bubble “What? Oh yeah…wewease the twiggah.” Which conjures up yet another caption: “Be vewy quiet. Weah hunting wepublicans!’

  16. Good way to loosen up a few teeth. Should go well with the bruised shoulder from placing the weapon too high up his armpit

  17. There’s now a facebook page with oh so funny photoshopped pics!!

    http://www.facebook.com/ObamaKeepsAmericaLaughing

  18. It has been reported that a certain depiction of the POTUS (President of the United States) at dinner with his family, was originally sent by mail but was picked up by the internet, and has therefore has been described as going postal.

    The depiction shows a family member at the dinner table saying, “Gee Ma, do we have to eat pigeon again, we never ever had it before last week, but now it’s every day?”. And the FLOTUS (First Lady of the United States) replying, “Eat your pigeon honey, clay is good for you and it has been decided it will make Daddy healthier”.

    At the bottom of the depiction is a sworn statement, probably dealing with why this depiction was not photo-shopped, but the statement can not be repeated in this family publication.

    Here’s one I found from the (fictitious) Save the Skeet Foundation.

  20. Very enjoyable post!

  21. Gosh you guys are sure hard on the POS. Being from Chicago by way of Kenya, he’s probably not use to shooting a long gun. All he knows about is using a ‘9 to bust a cap in sombody’s head’. Oh that’s right, up until recently you couldn’t have a handgun in Chicago – unless you were a cop or criminal. Which one was the POS?

  22. Photo Caption:

    Q. What’s more dangerous than a person with a gun that knows how to use it?
    A. A POS that does….and dosen’t.
