    Here's the bottom line. You can't make people look like fools who don't offer the opportunity. The right wing went after Obama for saying he skeet shoots. Should have left it alone. People who live glass houses and all that stuff ya know?

    @jessejaymes Ever gone skeet shooting? Gun is pointed UP at the clay disk that was shot UP into the air, sort of similar to shooting at ducks flying, Obama was aimed at what? A tree stump? They should have left well enough alone, the picture of Obama and a gun was definitely not a picture of a man skeet shooting.

    @Tralee Ever stood on a rise when the target release is at the foot of that rise? It's something done for poor tracking shooters. I know of a place in Los Angeles that has that exact set up. But even if it were an outright lie it's still something that is none of your business.

    @Tralee Ever missed the clay on the first shot, then nailed it right before it hit the ground? I have plenty of times, and also have plenty of pics that show me shooting level to nail that clay before it hit the ground.

    @Tralee funny that keeps being said over and over by photo experts who fail to realize the gun is actually pointed up. look at the photo, get a protractor if you're blind, it's not a huge angle but the barrel is clearly going up not down. You have no idea where the target is in it's path when he fires and nobody ever said he was any good at it. but then again, this goes to prove to the point i suppose. you're making a controversy out of something that isn't a controversy and trying to invent evidence of a conspiracy where there is no conspiracy. unless you count the people who keep trying to say he's pointing at the ground over and over a conspiracy.

    If the GOP is embarrassed by birthers and other right-wing extremists, perhaps they should stop giving them such a huge platform in which to express themselves... just sayin'...

    The State Hospital for the criminally insane is just down the street.
    You can drive by it when the patients are out getting exercise, no mistaking what it is, no need for a sign out front.
    People fondly nick named it, " Republican Headquarters!"

    HAHAHAHAHA. Very appropriate. During the Larry Craig scandal a few years back I remember seeing "GOP Caucus Room" written on the stall door in an airport men's room.

    Bsking, this problem has been around for years as the old story line of dog bites man is not news ... man bites dog is news! So it really doesn't matter if this is pointed out or not, the Trumps of this world will continue making stupid tweets and there will be plenty of people ready to repost it for all the world to see!

    Yes it does, but it doesn't matter atleast as far as I'm concerned! My social views may all be liberal but I will never side with them because their tactics make me sick, and their fiscal and constitutional views suck!

    You remember when you first knew that the GOP had gone over the edge? When Sarah Palin walked out on that stage at the GOP national convention and started talking all I could hear was Minnie Pearl HOOOOOWWWWWDDDY!! All that was missing was the hat with the price tag still on it.

    The current GOP does not hold the ideals of the true conservative citizen...I think Boehner is a putz...same with Cantor...until these guys get back to real conservative values...balancing the budget...defending Constitutional rights...limiting government meddling...they will always look like a bunch of idiots...

    As long as the GOP lets party representatives like Marsha Blackburn, Michelle Bachmann, Rick Santorum, Allen West, Richard Mourdock, Todd Akin, Sarah Palin and the like anywhere near a live microphone the GOP is going to look like a bunch of nuts. What does it say about the party when Ron Paul is the sanest of the bunch?

    I like Dave Weigel a lot but he's learning to see conspiracies in coincidence - much like the conservatives he covers. Take the #skeeters - if Republican Rep Marsha Blackburn had kept her mouth shut, that photo of the President with shotgun would not have seen the light of day.

    Seriously, there is no need for Democrats to plot to embarrass the GOP. It is possibly the one thing left Republicans are good at.

    Good point about Weigel's over-interpretation. It's also peculiar that Weigel has come up with a conspiracy theory to explain how Team Obama are responding to conspiracy theories.

    But alas for Republicans, the media isn't playing ball. of course they are,just that their ideology is socialist in nature,not that the Republican isn,t starting to slide into it with both feet

    Just looking at the photo of him holding the gun shows he is not comfortable at all and hasn't fired it many times if at all. Look at where the butt stock is located way to high. His eyes are no where near the level to sight in his target his eyes should be where his forehead is. If he is shooting skeet he should have the barrel elevated to hit the target. The funny thing is with all of his secret service members surrounding him you think they'd give him a couple pointers so he didn't look like a complete fool. Just face it libbies he got caught up in a lie and produced this photo for proof when any shooter beginner or expert could look at it and say he's probably never shot the thing and is completely uncomfortable and is gonna be sore if he did pull the trigger.

    President Obama doesn't have to work to make republicans "look" weird. They are a party of psychotics witness Insanetorium and any number of their other "leaders". Most couldn't get themselves elected in any other country. Romney walking a blind person into a door as a "prank" is a prime example.

    Good example of a corrupt government and where it is heading. All about misdirection from what is really happening. Study how Hitler took over Germany. Obama sure is doing a good job as Hitler

    Well, there are too many nuts on both sides of the aisle and not enough choices on this Politix "poll" as is often the case. I say Obama looks a little weird himself firing at clay disks at almost eye level. You'd think the shotgun would be elevated at a correct angle (skyward) for skeet shooting. But, maybe he was just shooting a friend's shotgun at some cans or bottles or maybe he had some help from Steven Spielberg and his fantasy fashioners (FX folks). Who knows. Who cares.

    Ooops! Forgot to mention the photo of President Obama allegedly shooting the shotgun is as ridiculous as that photo of former MA Governor Mike Dukakis riding on an Abrams M1 tank in the T.C.'s spot with a CVC helmet to boot.

    Oh check out the new bill being brought up. It will require any and every gun owner, any type firearm, to have a $ 250,000 "violence liability ins policy". Or your guns are taken away.
    They are talking about it right now on talk radio.

    We have hyper-ideologues in government because we don't pay enough attention to the primary races. Because of gerrymandering, districts are reliably red or blue. That means that the races are effectively settled in the primaries.

    Get out and vote in the primaries, and send pragmatic people to govern..
