If he was shooting skeets the gun would be pointing upwards. Why not just say the President was trying target shooting? Why lie about something like this.

When they first made the claim, the idea was that a lot of skeet shooting took place at Camp David. So you're right. Oh well!

why do you think the white house is lying about this, and more to the point, why are you mindlessly helping to spread pointless and petty faux-scandal-mongering about the president that is probably itself a lie? you yourself have written disapprovingly [and rightly so] in the past about the faux-scandal-mongering that was aimed at the clintons, why is it now ok to participate in such witchhunts against obama?
