Another take on the skeet shooting picture

    The Obama White House is yet again attempting to foist a fraud upon the American people
in the form of the picture purported to show Mr. Obama skeet shooting. It became necessary to produce a picture after Mr. Obama claimed in an interview in the New Republic that "we do skeet shooting all the time,".

    There are enough anomalies in the picture that one could conclude that Mr. Obama is unlikely to be skeet shooting. However there is definitive proof that the entire picture is phony. The “smoking gun” that disproves the picture is ironically the smoking gun.

    The gun in the picture is a Browning Citori 575 that comes with barrel lengths of 30”, 28” and 26”. I’m assuming that they are 30” barrels which would give the gun an overall length of 47” (http://www.academy.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Product_10151_10051_473651_-1 ).

    The image of the gun and the image of Mr. Obama are in different scales. To prove this yourself, print the picture and measure the distance from the smoking end along the top of the barrel to where the color changes from blue to silver this is equal to 30”. Next measure from the top of his head down an equal distance which comes a few inches below his crotch. I am at least 5 inches shorter than Mr. Obama and from the top of my head to my belt is 30” Next take your measurement of the barrel and multiply by 2.5 and measure from the top of his down and put a mark on the picture. This distance on the picture is (30” times 2.5 equals 75”) 6’ 3”. Now draw in a set of legs from the bottom of the picture to your mark. Unless Mr. Obama has a set of legs like a circus clown on stilts this should convince anyone that the picture is bogus.
