Does he have to prove everything he says, frets Lauer? I guess he sure does since these pictures make up some great propaganda.

Notice the word one of Lauer's guests uses in place of shot gun. I wonder how many of THEM really know the difference.

IMHO, the entire story surrounding the photo is a fairly large joke. I'm not sure exactly why Obama's PR team thought that they should put a photo out 'proving' that Obama "goes shooting all the time." Taking into consideration the amount of distrust that half of this country has toward the current president, a fairly dim-witted eight grader could have told them there would be a lot of flak over this.

Quite frankly, I don't believe that Obama is a regular firearms user. However, that's beside the point. Whether he uses a firearm once a week, once a year, or once a decade doesn't actually have any affect on me. What matters are his policies, and when it comes to gun control, especially the whole "assault rifles" and high capacity magazine portion of gun control, his policies are based on inaccuracies and lies.

Matt Lauer is a weenie. The only reason to watch that show was Katie Couric's high hem lines.

"Does he have to prove everything he says?" -Yes, just like a child caught lying too many times, he does.

During the Tuesday panel discussion, advertising executive Donny Deutsch admitted that the image of a gun-toting Obama was a "contrived photo," but defended it for its propaganda value

Kinda like his contrived birth certificate.

Once a liar, always a liar.

From what I've read, it's the Obamaphobic lunatic fringe that's hatching multiple conspiracy theories over that photo.

I don't understand what the big deal is with skeet shooting and hunting with a shot gun. I know folks in New York may not have ever held a gun, but where I come from, we start teaching gun use and safety from an early age. I'm not opposed to back ground checks, reducing magazine sizes, or things of that nature. I think the assault weapons ban is just silly, doesn't do anything.

It also doesn't mean a damned thing to me, good or bad, that the President skeet shoots.

Obama took it upon himself to "prove" that he has shot a gun before. Obama set the new standard for himself by releasing the picture.

Wouldn't you want someone you know who claims they drive race cars all the time to show you a picture of them driving a race car?

Of course you would, or else you'd go around thinking the person was a liar.

Because they are trying to do damage control. obama has made no apologies for being anti gun unless it is black gang members in the chicago area then he does not thingk they should be punished more severly for gun crimes He would rather take away guns from law abiding citizens and let the gang members run wild with their illegally gotten guns...

He is hoping that by showing him with a gun the sheeple will push that see he is not anti gun like the right is trying to say that he is.

Very well said, Frank. I think you just pointed out the reason that the fools let that picture get out.
