Manipulate This (Obama Skeet Shooting)

The Obama administration released a photo of President Obama shooting skeet, although you can't actually see what he's shooting at.

They added a rather amusing warning to the photo release:

This official White House photograph is being made available only for publication by news organizations and/or for personal use printing by the subject(s) of the photograph. The photograph may not be manipulated in any way and may not be used in commercial or political materials, advertisements, emails, products, promotions that in any way suggests approval or endorsement of the President, the First Family, or the White House.

So in the spirit of civil disobedience, here are four pictures of Obama shooting his shotgun, the first being the official one released by the White House, the second (I am told) comes from a contest at Michelle Malkin's web site, and the last two done by a friend of mine.

    Funny how you see video of the basketball and golf but here we only have a still photo out of context. There is no copywrite protection of the president in a photo so noone can claim ownership of it. You could sit in a race car at Indy but that doesn't make you a driver in the race. You also have to be able to speak, in depth, about the hobby or profession you claim to know. I don't believe he can do that.
