#Photogate - Obama Goes Target Shooting

There is no doubt this is not the last we've seen or heard about this photo and it will be critiqued down to the last megapixel. Even if none of the conspiracy theory attacks hold up, it will be fun to watch it all unfold. Going to start tracking it here.

Here is the official description from White House flickr account:

First things first. Was Obama at Camp David on August 4th, 2012?  Yes, according to multiple media reports on his schedule, even though there is nothing on the  But according to the Office of the Press Secretary, he was to "travel to Camp David" on Saturday the 4th.

Interestingly, the President's birthday is August 4th.  And what a better way to celebrate your birthday than your 104th round of Gold!  This also confirms his plays to head to Camp David.  According to The New York Daily News, Obama..
marked his 51st birthday Saturday with a quiet round of golf...playing golf for the 104th time since taking office, hit the links at Andrews Air Force base before departing for a night away at Camp David.
 Now, this is where it get's a little interesting.  According to the Boston Globe, Obama's round of golf lasted about 6 hours.  The photo shown below is one taken as he boards Marine One after playing golf and heading to Camp David.  He is wearing khaki pants and a white shirt.

Andrews Air Force base is only about 80 miles from Camp David, so I assume he was there in less than an hour.  So, with a morning tee time, Obama could have easily made it to Camp David with plenty of day light to go "target shooting".

I have to assume that after golfing, the President showered and changed clothes.  Anyone who plays a full round of 18 knows how stinky and smelly you are after golfing outdoors.  Additionally, it can be physically draining.  So, we are left to conclude that Obama played golf and then on his birthday wanted to go target shooting at Camp David.  Believable?  Sure, but why the change of clothes?
