Obama Skeet Shooting Photo Released

An image of President Barack Obama skeet shooting has been released, to the surprise of the media.

White House Senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer tweeted out the picture after others expressed skepticism about President Obama’s statement that he skeet shoots “all the time.” 

“POTUS shoots clay targets on the range at Camp David on Aug. 4, 2012,” said the tweet. 

The photo was released in response to criticism that came from an interview with The New Republic, where the president admitted that he likes to skeet shoot.

“Have you ever fired a gun?” The president was asked. 

Obama then replied by saying: “Yes, in fact, up at Camp David, we do skeet shooting all the time.”

During an appearance on CNN, Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., said, “If he is a skeet shooter, why have we not heard of this? Why have we not seen photos?”

She also said: “I think he should invite me to Camp David, and I’ll go skeet shooting with him. And I bet I’ll beat him.”
