This past Monday I wrote that the White House would find a photo of President Obama shooting skeet within a week, and they came in just under the wire. The picture is said to be from last summer and features the president in traditional “mom jeans camo” skeet shooting garb. Take that, “skeeters”:

So can we put Marsha Blackburn’s challenge back on the table?

From The Hill:

The White House has released a photo of President Obama skeet shooting at Camp David from August, 2012, attempting to quell a controversy that arose when Obama said that he sympathized with hunters because he frequently went shooting himself.

“Attn skeet birthers. Make our day – let the photoshop conspiracies begin!,” former White House advisor David Plouffe tweeted in a message containing a link to a photo of Obama brandishing a shot gun and wearing ear muffs and sun glasses.

Conservative critics questioned the veracity of the Obama’s claims of skeet shooting because he had never been seen publicly shooting a gun.

I was going to have a little fun with the picture, but Pasadena Phil’s warning may have saved me considerable legal hassle (not everybody’s paying attention to that, however). It had something to do with a teleprompter with the word “pull!” on the screen, but never mind now. We’ll have to settle for the version The New Republic briefly pointed out the other day.

National Review’s Jim Geraghty has some presidential skeet shooting trivia:

On the president’s birthday last summer, the skeet shooting is said to have taken place after a round at Andrews, naturally (if Obama would have said he golfs “all the time” nobody would have doubted it for a second).

What this story needs now is a “History of the World” reference:

Update: The White House’s decree that nobody Photoshop the latest picture of Obama firing a gun is being heeded about as well as you’d expect. More flaunting of the White House edict here.
