White House forbids photoshopping of Obama shooting image…we couldn’t help ourselves!


After a week of absurd controversy over the President’s remarks that he goes “skeet shooting all the time,” the White House finally decided to release a photo of Obama firing a shotgun.  Upon releasing the photo, the White House included a warning expressly forbidding people to photoshop the image…

Here’s the original image:


from the official White House Flickr page:

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.

Well, you see, there’s this little thing called the 1st Amendment that allows me to manipulate the photo.  With that in mind, the photo doesn’t allow us to see the President’s target…I just used my imagination. 

Calling all photoshoppers…..this is the day you were born for.
