Posted on 03/12/2014 9:32:33 AM PDT by nascarnation
The United States Secret Service has started the process to begin to build the next generation presidential limousine with the posting of a contract proposal on the FedBizOpps.gov site for companies seeking to do business with the federal government. The contract will be awarded by the Dept. of Homeland Security by August 29th of this year and the new armored limo, no doubt equipped with the latest and highest tech communications and security gizmos, is planned to go into service in 2017, after Mr. Obamas replacement takes office.

I propose he pay for and drive a Chevy Volt with one DC policeman carrying a five shot revolver.
That should suffice.
Oh yea- convertible if possible.
I think “the Beast” is very appropriate for the president/anti-christ.
Nice..is that McLame driving?
Roosevelt must have gotten it out of storage.
In 1909, US President William Howard Taft ordered two Pierce-Arrows (and two White Model M Tourers) to be used for state occasions, the first official cars of the White House.
LOL, should be, but I think it’s Biteme Biden.
Make that a Chevy Dolt.
If hillary wins, it’ll be a battle tank,,,,, for the battle axe!
Except without the revolver. He wants to ban guns, doesn’t he?
I’d say a ‘horseless carriage’, but for zero, that’d only be half correct.
It will probably be a stretch version of the Prius.
Wasn’t Teddy POTUS before Taft?
Five shot, but only one bullet and that one in his pocket with a biometeric lock on it.
How about a golf cart?
LOL that armor is heavy.
I worked on the powertrain of the current one.
It’s a 26,000 pound rated truck chassis with a simulated Cadillac body.
Hillary doesn’t play golf does she? The timeline for the new one is inauguration 2017.
Rocket powered pushbroom with “comfortvibe” seating.
Nicely done! LMAO
Awe shoot! You’re right. I had them reversed.
It was the first thing that popped to mind.
The should get him one like the Duke of New York in the movie Escape from New York.
They should buy Chevy Volts for Obozo, Moosela, Biden, all of the cabinet members, and the czars.
Give them a free cell phone and a whistle for protection in DC and other liberal cities.
A clown car would be most appropriate........
Since he is El Presidente, I propose at least he be given the Cadillac version of the Volt. Then the entire fleet of Beasts can be sold off to other Banana Republic El Presidentes. Even at fire sale prices, we should recoup enough to get him three or four electric Cadallics.
It will also have extra wide cankles, I mean tires!
So the Beast is scheduled to be dispatched along with Obama. Has a rather apocalyptic ring to it. Simultaneously given over to the burning flame as it were. Pack in Congress and let 'em all ride headlong into the abyss.
On the subject of apocalyptic,
10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.
Man is mooshell that bad?
Actually Hillary was the “design load”.
It was developed in the late 90s.
“I mean tires!”
Extra wide tank treads!
I demand that it be an all electric vehicle!
If Hillary wins, they’ll order a stretch broom for her.
I say NO!!!
this Country is $$$$broke$$$$ enough!
Whoever gets in next can buy what THEY can pay for out of OWN POCKET.
Was not there a picture of the current car on the bed of a wrecker in Israel?
I thought it was an article about Moochelle.
I think so. There is actually a fleet of them, not sure how many exist currently. Initially they built two but I think there are more now.
I stand corrected ,sir!
