The GOP has ventured down yet another back alley in Crazytown, and they've dragged the "Liberal" media along with them. This recent scandal stems from comments Obama made after being asked if he has ever fired a gun.
The New Republic: “Have you ever fired a gun?”
President Obama: “Yes, in fact, up at Camp David, we do skeet shooting all the time.”
New Republic: ”The whole family?”
Obama: “Not the girls, but oftentimes guests of mine go up there. And I have a profound respect for the traditions of hunting that trace back in this country for generations. And I think those who dismiss that out of hand make a big mistake.”
Of course the gun-crazy right didn't believe the black President, and of course, the White House bent to their pressure and released a photo of the President firing a gun at Camp David.
Now in a normal world, inhabited by normal, logical humans that possess the ability to reason, this would have ended this non-issue and laid this made-up non-controversy controversy to rest. But this isn't a normal world. This is a world infested by teabagging racist cretins who shriek louder and louder until whatever nonsensical bullshit they are spewing is picked up by the brainless media. Even when faced with photographic evidence, the racist right still refuses to believe.
They claim the photo was made with a green screen in photoshop, or he's not really shooting skeet in the photo, or Obama had his family witchdoctor conjure up an image. They refuse to accept reality.
What ever happened to "jobs, jobs, jobs?"
