President Obama’s armored Cadillac limo, which was supposed to schlep him around the Holy Land, broke down.

According to Israeli’s Channel 2, the cause of the mishap was a simple error all motorists try to avoid.

“The Americans filled it up with diesel, rather than [gasoline],” the channe quoted a source, which recently scored an interview with Obama, reported – in case there was any doubt that the host government wasn’t to blame.

“The Secret Service scrambled today to fly in a backup vehicle.”

And how much is this going to cost?

Why doesn’t he do like the new Pope and take the bus?

Was Moochelle in the vehicle apparently named for her? That might explain the problem!

This is at least the 4th time for this on FR today.
The story is flawed.
The POTUS limo is a diesel.
I worked on the program for one of the powertrain component suppliers.

God is giving us signs that Obama is literally “out of gas”. This mistake is symbolic of the bonehead errors the Obama Team make and continue to make. A Confederacy of Dunces.

Probably put some of that litre gasoline instead of gallons gasoline. The car just didn't understand a foreign language.

It might be out of oil. The problem with The Beast is that the dipstick is in the back.

That Obama is such a genius it makes you wonder what he is up to.

“Secret Service will acknowledge that a vehicle broke down. That’s why we bring extra vehicles, mechanics etc.,” agency spokesman Brian Leary told the Post.

If they brought extra vehicles, why are they flying another one in?

My take on what actually happened:

[Beast pulls up to gas station. Secret Service agent gets out to pump diesel. "The Won" spies some Palestinians lingering nearby, gets out of the limo to show off.]
The Won: "Here, here! Step aside. I'll pump the gas."
[reaches for wrong pump]
SS Agent #1: "But sir..."
The Won: "I said, step aside!" [waves and smiles at Palis. Puts wrong fuel in limo]
[SS Agent #1 gives helpless look to SS Agent #2]
SS Agent #2: [Smiles, whispers to SS Agent #1] "Let him do it. This'll be priceless."
The Won: [finishes up, flashes thumbs up to Palis, gets back in limo] "Alright! Let's go!"

An old WWII tank guy told me that standardizing on gasoline is one of the many things that “won the war”. He said they came across a lot of German hardware with the wrong fuel in it. When it is very cold, diesel and gas are hard to tell apart.

But holy cow, the president’s limo? Someone will never live that down.

Interesting. Maybe they got the diesel/gas thing switched around incorrectly. Gas in a diesel won’t run at all.

With this occupier in the WH, I believe something this dumb could happen.

Maybe they left it to Biden to fill the damn thing up. Diesel, gas, what the hell’s the difference? Hillary in the background, “What does it matter?!?”

You know if we had Bush and Cheney in the WH SNL would be doing a skit about this. And it would probably be humorous.

If they had balls they could do a really good skit on this. Back seat full of lobster and golf clubs...

A car of that weight would go two blocks before needing to charge again. Of course they’d never drive in the stuff they’d mandate the little people must drive around in.

I mean, couldn’t you just see it?

Obama, Hillary and Biden, in the limo, Barry gets out and puts the wrong stuff in, Biden’s trying to put wiper fluid in, says “pop the trunk, i want to look at the engine”, and Hillary’s just mantra-ing “What’s the difference” and stumbling around wearing coke-bottle glasses with a drink in her hand, later referencing she has a personal lady tool she calls “Huma” in her purse....
