Barack Obama Likes Duck Hunt

Barack Obama believes people hunt ducks with pistols.

While speaking to union workers at labor gathering here, Obama mocked Clinton, calling her Annie Oakley.

“She’s running around talking about how this is an insult to sportsmen, how she values the Second Amendment, she's talking like she’s Annie Oakley!,” Obama said.

“Hillary Clinton’s out there like she's on the duck blind every Sunday. She’s packin’ a six shooter! Come on! She knows better. That’s some politics being played by Hillary Clinton. I want to see that picture of her out there in the duck blinds.”

To be honest, I don't hunt. I don't know much about hunting. But, from what I do recall, the last time somebody used a pistol to hunt ducks was in 1984 when Nintendo released Duck Hunt where folks would put their Nintendo Zapper Light Gun up to the screen to cheat their way to victory. Now, like I said, I don't hunt, hunters use shotguns. Now, I could be wrong, and out of touch with the hunting world... but then again, I don't go around and insult people for their use of guns. If Obama is going to criticize for someone because he believes they are false in their belief in guns, maybe his assertion might be more credible if he were able to come off as someone who knows a little something about guns and gun use.

Maybe Obama really is out of touch with those small town Pennsylvanians who"have rifles because their fathers taught them to hunt at an early age." Or maybe he should stick to bowling with a tie on. It'll be an opportunity to let Pennsylvanians know he's really not pretentious.
