One of our FRiends here helped build that thing. He didn't tell us it was a low rider without hydraulic lifts.

The sound that car makes when it wedges against that ramp is worth the price of admission. The first car out barely makes it over and the crowd cheers and when the beast makes that stiff sounding stop and rocks the crowd goes wild with laughter. You can’t make this stuff up. I am certain the Irish pubs were all a buzz after this.

With Moochele out of the car it would probably make it over the bump on it’s own.

Ha! I love it! Would love to have been able to see them bouncing around in the backseat when it hit. They probably both did faceplants against the back of the front seats. HA!

CNN said that the Obamas weren’t in that car, but the security guys became a human wall to block onlookers from seeing who changed cars.

When I read your post, I had to laugh as that reminded me of the scene in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation when they go to get the tree at the beginning and the kids were all over the back seat. LOL!

The more I look at this, the more convinced I am that there was a retractable bollard that came up and stopped the limo. You can see the bollard ring after the BMW passes.

Boy, it sure looks like the two blokes standing on the left side of the gate had some idea that getting the Beast over that hump might prove tricky. The one guy seems to make a comment just after the BMW gets by, and then the two of them seem to stare at the ground at the exact spot where the Beast got stuck. I think somebody screwed up big time.

I think that clunk sound is the suspension failing. Look closely at the position in the wheelwell of the right front tire before and after the incident. If the car was high-centered, the front wheel would be hanging DOWN, not stuffed up into the wheelwell.

fox reported that the vehicle ‘was destroyed’ after it was unstuck

So, I can see it having sensitive electronics etc, but, the Irish aren’t exactly our enemies, so why destroy it instead of bringing the thing back and fixing it?

It's really funny, considering that Obama’s traveling retinue of 500 was clearly meant to invoke an Imperial Roman Triumph. His royal chariot was transformed into a clown car.

they were there for 3 hours according to the local press here..had to get a huge truck tow to move it. i would not imagine the usual tow point would work on the beast. dragging it off would not be the best either. just guessing.. i would imagine some guy in the secret service is due a God awful bollicking this morning.

Certainly parallels his Presidency

2006 - makes the turn
2007 - starts a rise to cheering fans
2008 - running up to the apex of his campaign
2009 - hits the pinnacle of his Presidency
2010 - High Centered by the Tea Party
2011 - Everybody standing around wondering what to do now

Not only did it get stuck, but the liars are insisting that the moochie and madman were not inside. That The Beast was there to carry staff.

Ever the liars they just can’t seem to help themselves. Muslims lie, no other way around that.

Yes if it was a bunch of staff they wouldn’t have moved the bus in front so the onlookers couldn’t see what was going on.

And people are still joking it was because of Michelle’s weight!

A truly patriotic and loyal Secret Service team would have seen this right away, I hate to possibly spill the beans here but I think somebody knew this would happen.

I sure hope they keep on doing it!

I bet Sarah Palin will just use a regular HUMVEE when she travels around. And I doubt she will need the “Cone of Silence or the Teleprompters at all.

The advance team organized a crowd to be waiting at that driveway. Inerestingly enough when The Beast bottomed out they transferred to another car and left from another driveway.

So sad, no adoring fans to see the departure. Boo hoo.

10 years ago I watched one of those little bitty pickup trucks with a cut down cab and about 2 inches of ground clearance get stuck on a speed bump in the mall parking lot. His hydraulics weren’t hydrauling. His passenger and a couple of passersby sat on the tailgate to drop the drive wheels to the pavement which picked up the front wheels. They got it off but the scraping and screeching indicated that there was some repair work to be done.
