These journalists actually get paid to ask these stupid questions.
No wonder our papers are going in the hopper.

Where does it say, if you are a Democrat, you MUST be anti-gun, anti-rich, anti-hunting, anti-carnivorous, anti-anything-the-righties-mig ht-be-for?

And the reverse is true for the Republicans.

I heard BO say, just last week, he enjoyed skeet shooting at Camp David. It has always been one of the recreational opportunities available for the Prez and his family/friends/guests to enjoy.

And THEN he proceeded to say (I'm paraphrasing now...I wish I could remember EXACTLY what he said) anyone thinking HE wanted to see gun control enacted, and that it could actually be done, was only kidding themselves. Only he made it sound like he was thinking to himself 'that's a pretty f_____g stupid concept.'

I was happy with his response to both shooting and gun control.

Funny, when skeet shooting, I thought the gun was pointing upward to hit the target.

They showed him shooting on a level plane with the smoke coming from the gun. Hmmm...

When I'm quail hunting 'i' can't even get off a 2nd
or third shoot for all the smoke that comes out the barrel. "BIG LIE!"
I realize when skeet shooting you use light loads,
but not light enough to make that much smoke. Those
shells must'a been loaded with "BLACK" 'pun' POWDER

Not if you smoke 'em 20 feet off the ground. Some people like to hold their sights up in the air - others like to "track" the bird before shooting.

Prior to this pic being released each and every
reporter on Fox news harped on and on about if
Obama did shoot a weapon why has the public never
seen a pic.
Each and Every reporter on Each and Every Fox show.
Then as soon as this photo is released they complained
that it had to be photo shopped.
There is no winning with Fox news.
They complain b/c they had never seen a pic now they
are complaining b/c they Have seen a pic.

More evidence that there is No pleasing them.
