The Truth About Cars ^ | 4/12/14 | Ronnie Schreiber

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. Obama’s 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.

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 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.

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.

re: I propose he pay for and drive a Chevy Volt

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.

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. Obama’s replacement takes office.

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,

Obama: 'I Don't Have Time to Waste. The Clock Is Ticking.'

Revelation 12:10-13

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.

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.
