    What a perfect metaphor / symbol for Obamanomics! Obama's unwieldy Limo "Beast" was stuck trying to exit the U.S. Embassy in Dublin.

    Less ostentatious vehicles are able to traverse through the exit with ease. But just like his economy cratering Big Government agenda, the Beast Limo is too large to maneuver.

    And now he has found the technology to make his limo bow to foreign nationals? It was only a matter of time.

    I wonder how many MPG The Beast Limo gets?

    I'm guessing not more than 8.

    Yep. If it had been Bush no doubt she'd be calling for the US to invade Ireland for having a badly placed speed bump.

    Well, since Kennedy's time they have been more and more armor plated. The thing flies with him wherever he goes.

    Back before Lee Harvey Oswald, presidents rode convertibles

    It is 5" thick armor and glass that can handle a RPG round. So it weighs a bunch.

    I remember Jimmy Carter hiking the whole way from the Capital to the white house.

    People thought that was goofy too. There just is no pleasing folks, so why try?
