VIDEO: CNN'S Erin Burnett Calls Obama A Liar, Saying PROVE You're A Skeet Shooter

VIDEO: CNN'S Erin Burnett Calls Obama A Liar, Saying PROVE You're A Skeet Shooter

If there are truthers and birthers, should there now be a new term for those who are doubting President Obama’s claim that he goes skeet shooting “all the time”? And should that term be “skeeters”? If so, count CNN’s rising young star Erin Burnett among the gadflies.

During a segment on Monday night, Burnett took over two minutes to dissect the president’s shooting claim — and she found it wanting.

“Obama the skeet shooter,” she began. “Yeah, I’m not making this up. I mean, if someone is, it isn’t me.”

She then played the clip of CNN’s Jessica Yellin confronting Press Secretary Jay Carney on the comments, repeatedly asking if a picture of the activity existed and why no one had ever heard of him doing it before.

By facts & figures somebody stole the whole damn economy, 2008.

By facts & figures it can be shown that the whole damn economy was disappeared in 2008.

I do not know:

  • Who did it?
  • Why they did it?
  • How they did it?
  • Nor how anyone can hide the whole damn economy?!
  • Nor, where they hid it?!

It is not a stretch to say, statistically speaking, it was certainly not anyone involved with financial chicanery:

  • $1 billion bailouts
  • $5 trillion tax increases
  • $23 trillion dollar secret loans from the Fed Reserve....

With little due respect, we are statistically, living in the "Land of the Fiscal Cliff Innocents!"

So they need to take guns to save people from themselves?..

From accidents and suicides? Unbelievable what that guy said in the video...

The fact that crime has dropped so much indicates that the public as a whole are more trust worthy than ever to own them.

Thanks for the post.

But I can't, in good faith, click on any link that might benefit GB.

No photos or video of him 'sporting' because.....

someone said he is beyond lousy at it. He's probably only done it once and didn't try again because he sucked so bad.

Ralphy, Can You Imagine "Dick" Cheney and Barack Obama

out hunting... They might shoot themselves in their respective kiesters..

lol..

Lol!

I could see Jon Stewart doing a whole Daily Show dedicated to it!

Erin Burnett is a douche bag, White House shill.

Sorry for the strong language but she really get's under my skin.

Thanx,

MSM Bulldog!

Whoa! Erin. You're really breaking out! That's right - it is the press's job to challenge official statements by the President. Especially something as important as this - skeet shooting.

/ end sarcasm.

Maybe next time take a look at the drone policy?

Mich~ael, you are on a roll ....Keep it up!

lol..

Thanks for posting..

Big E, you are too

Keep it up too!

Thanks for the info. You have such a wide variety of sources.

My Pleasure Mich~ael!

Have good day and remmeber we are the resistance buddie!

Even If...

...the truth comes from someone detestable, it remains the truth.

The fact that only now are people pointing to this particular lie from the routinely lying-lips of Dear Leader, is what I find detestable.

OMG, LOL

Thats too funny, "I hate violence, fell like a stone" Skeet shooting the peasants, LOL

Erin Burnett is an asshole

She came from MSNBC and was full in with the crowd about the bailouts and as long as corporations and banks are doing good with their profits then we are all fine.
She is shill and a liar herself.

Correction

She was on CNBC. Back when I used to have a TV. I liked her on CNBC. She's pretty. Its nice to have a pretty face report on the stock market.

As for reporting on the news, I don't see that she has the chops for it.

Speaking of that crowd - the former CNBC anchors - someone else I liked at CNBC was Dylan Ratigan. Then he moved onto MSNBC and did good work as well. He's someone who definitely had the chops.

But what happened to him? Does he still have his show? I don't have cable so the only exposure I get is from YouTube, but I haven't seen anything from him recently. Did he get silenced?

Dylan Ratigan Blog:

I left a 15 year career in financial journalism amid the crisis of 2008. I did this to join the traditional cable news ranks with a clear goal of revealing the ruthless truth about our biggest problems and telling the inspiring stories of those who are resolving them despite all odds.

After three years at MSNBC, two national roadshows and one book, (and a couple of rants) my objections to our current political process and our dominance-at-all-costs culture that gives us all less, while we pay more is well documented.

Fortunately, I have been inspired by meeting countless "doers" like Bea Cohen, 102 years old and one of the original "Rosie the Riveters" to contemporaries like Marine Veteran Colin Archipley who, after serving three tours in Iraq, started "Archi's Acres" with his wife in San Diego to teach returning veterans how to use low-cost, hydroponic, organic farming techniques to create good jobs that produce twice as much food, at a higher quality, using 90 percent less soil and water.

They are pointing us -- through their actions in history and today -- on a clear mission to seize new tools and take cultural risks to resolve our challenges. Bea Cohen and millions of other women did this in the past. Millions of men and women are doing this now -- simply by daring to create new, sustainable, tolerant, problem-solving cultures in almost every social, personal and financial system.

It is in this context that I have decided to leave cable news to collaborate and join with some of these leaders to experiment and explore new ways to tell their stories.

While it may seem unconventional to leave a rapidly growing political cable show on the eve of a presidential election, to me, the timing couldn't be better.

In fact, the thrill of an opportunity to expand new systems that cost less and give us more in every part of life is impossible to pass up. I believe if we are honest about where we are now, honest about where we want to go and honest about how we are going to get there, we may well end up as the hero of our own stories. While I don't know exactly how my own story will develop, I hope to share some initial details with you soon. In the meantime, keep in touch at:

My mama taught me If you can't say something nice about someone

wait for someone else to say it and agree with them. I agree with your assessment and for the same reasons.

But I am forced to grudgingly agree with Erin on this point. I did a google search for images of Obama playing basketball and there are hundreds of them. Then I searched for Obama shooting skeets and haven't found one yet.

Isn't it strange that all these white house photographers take these hundreds of candid photos of him playing b-ball but put their cameras down when he's at the range?

Maybe they're all racist.

9-11 was a panda job.

good point, true

agreed
