Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn: I Can Beat Obama in Skeet Shooting [Video]

Marsha Blackburn, the Republican congresswoman from Tennessee, is skeptical about President Barack Obama’s claim that he regularly goes skeet shooting at Camp David.

In the context of the ongoing gun control debate, Obama asserted in an interview in The New Republic that he goes skeet shooting all the time and thus could appreciate the concerns of hunters and sportsmen/women about new firearms regulations.

On Erin Burnett‘s prime time show on CNN, Marsha Blackburn, who is a strong supporter of Second Amendment rights, had this to say about Obama’s sport-shooting anecdote:

“I think this is a relevant point of conversation. If he is a skeet shooter, why have we not heard of this? Why have we not seen photos? Why hasn’t he referenced this at any point in time? As we have had this gun debate that is ongoing, you would have thought it would have a point of reference.

“I tell you what I do think — I think he should invite me to Camp David, and I’ll go skeet shooting with him. I bet I’ll beat him.”

… I’ll challenge him to skeet shooting. It’s a great hobby, and I would hope that the president does enjoy it.”

CNN followed up with the White House about Obama’s skeet shooting:

“When asked by Jessica Yellin, CNN’s chief White House correspondent, how often the president goes skeet shooting, White House press secretary Jay Carney said earlier Monday that he doesn’t know.

” ‘He does go to Camp David with some regularity, but I’m not sure how often he’s done that,’ Carney said during the daily press briefing.”

    Given the Congresswoman's dumb remarks on the teevee for the last several years I wonder if she is competent to hold a shotgun. Maybe Dick Chenny should check her out.
