    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama celebrated his 51st birthday on Saturday with a round of golf, then helicoptered to the Camp David presidential retreat for a quiet evening off the campaign trail.

    Obama, an avid golfer, played with colleagues and friends at the Andrews Air Force Base in hot, muggy weather conditions before taking Marine One to Maryland's Catoctin Mountains in the afternoon.

    The White House did not release details of the president's evening plans or share the menu for the birthday meal he was expected to share with wife, Michelle.
    Every article from the day that pic was supposed to have been taken (his birthday) mentions that he played golf and was having a quiet weekend. And that's all.

    I guess it's possible that he went and shot a gun that day, between golf, flying, a quiet evening and time with the kids but it's strange there's no mention of it anywhere.

    If they had said he spent the day with his muzzle loader I would have just assumed he was with Michelle.
    How is obama working out for you?

    At this point I don't expect anyone to challenge a story such as "Bush created cancer and Obama has found a cure for it".

    Fredo, Fredo's press corps, Fredo's entire administration, the DNC and all their supporters are nothing more than a bunch of lying aholes so what's the difference.

    You didn't build that so what difference does it make...is where we are in this country.
    Be Not Afraid.

    Ya know
    There are a number of off things about it. There is absolutely no movement in the photo, I.e., no blur, no motion on the barrel, which is perfectly aligned with the discharge. That tells me that it's a still of Obama holding the gun in front of a backdrop with the smoke added after. Note that the smoke is against the darkest parts of the photo, and the barrel has an odd ring on the end. This indicates that the smoke was added after the fact. Now, I could be wrong about that, but I doubt it.

    The info is as follows:

    Creator: The White House
    Dimensions: 1024 x 683
    Exposer: 1/320 sec at f / 4.0
    Focal Length: 170 mm
    ISO Speed Rating: ISO 400
    Make: Canon
    MOdel: Canon EOS 5D Mark III


    I had my wife, who is a photographer and is fluent in both Lightroom and Photoshop, look at it, and she said this: NOT A FAKE...

    It is a pretty clear pic, so I zoomed it in, and that is him shooting the gun.
    Or at least a photo of him holding the gun.

    No recoil, wrong sighting, wrong gun, wrong posture, wrong smoke pattern. If I shot a shotgun in this posture, I would be on my butt on the ground, not standing there like a statute.
