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.
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?
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
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! 😀
Here’s one photoshopped image our DCG found:
