Oh, come on! What could be more awkward looking than Obama pitching a baseball.… or bowling?

Fox News reports that while Obama may have exaggerated a teensy little bit when he said that he goes skeet shooting all the time, he has gone at least once. Maybe twice. And even though he has “profound respect” for the traditions of hunting in this country, and “has a strong record of support for our 2nd Amendment rights” *cough* … he couldn’t get out of there fast enough.

Via Weasel Zippers:

News of President Obama’s apparently long-secret fondness for skeet shooting came as a surprise to those who say they have witnessed the president’s “awkward” attempts at pinging the (clay) pigeons.

This has only happened with the president at Camp David, at most, a couple of times, according to a source who says he has been to the retreat on a half-dozen visits with Obama.

“The only time he shot skeet was for President’s Cup,” said the source, referring to a shooting competition tradition involving the presidential Marine guards. “I was there. He stayed for about five minutes, and couldn’t leave fast enough.”

Skeet shooting “is very hard,” said the source. “Especially for someone not used to guns … He couldn’t have been more uncomfortable.”

Don’t hold your breath waiting to see if he accepts Rep. Marsha Blackburn’s (R-Tenn.) offer of a skeet shooting contest.

UPDATE:

Can I do skeet shooting with this?

    REPLY–Comment: You do good work “Nice Deb.” Note: Some months after the beginning of B.O.’s first term in office, he had to go to Andrew’s Air Force Base(?), which receives America’s ” fallen warriors (in this case a K.I.A. navy seal. He didn’t even know how to salute the closed casket out of respect, and had to be trained. Many officers and enlisted from the famous J.M.C.– Joint Military Command were completed disguisted that they had to train him on the spot. Pitiful and disgraceful.
