"If he is a skeet shooter, why have we not heard of this? Why have we
not seen photos? Why hasn't he referenced this at any point in time?"
Blackburn said Monday on CNN's "Erin Burnett OutFront." "I tell you what I do think," she later added. "I think he should
invite me to Camp David, and I'll go skeet shooting with him and I bet
I'll beat him."
Because he isn't a skeet shooter, and never has been. That's why it never came up before, and it's why there are no pictures of Obama shooting skeet. Or anything else. Obama's claim to be a regular skeet shooter is nothing more than his version of the classic anti-gun platitude, "I'm a gun owner, but..." or "I'm an NRA member, but..." that you see all the time in articles calling for more gun control. Generally speaking, it's a blatant lie, nothing more than a rhetorical tactic to persuade the reader by asserting similarity.
Kudos to Rep Marsha Blackburn for calling the President's bluff.
