Barack Obama's old car fails to sell
Chicago Tribune ^ | February 2, 2012 | Rob Manker

Posted on 02/02/2012 7:48:04 AM PST by ConservativeStatement

What's the value of a car used by Barack Obama? Apparently not $1 million.

An eBay auction for a gray 2005 Chrysler 300C leased by Obama before he became president closed late Wednesday with no bids meeting that minimum asking price, after which the listing agent hinted that $1 million might have been too much to expect.

With "the economy improving" after "taking over from eight years of George Bush's failed policies," one would think this would be a top seller. /sarc.

Too many male DNA stains in the backseat, if you catch my drift.

In another news development, these aren't selling so well anymore either.

Is it racist to notice that the 300C seems to be especially popular with Obama’s peeps? (That is, his black half).

I'd buy it for a ten-spot.
Take it out to the country and fill it full of holes.

What was that movie? Sharps fifty and a stolen Cadillac?

Rancho Deluxe.

There's an opportunity to make a few bucks here! Buy Obama's vehicle and auction off chances to participate in a target shoot. Gun clubs would be falling all over eachother to participate.

He can take a million dollar deduction when he donates it to Goodwill - like Clinton’s used underwear.

Thank goodness he’s not greedy - like those Wall Street fat cats, and corporations, and oil companies, and insurance companies, and Doctors, and Republicans, and white people, and the Cambridge police, and George W Bush, and tea-baggers, and GM managers, and GM equity holders, and climate change deniers, and Fox News, and white people - did I say white people?...

Cut off the minimum bid and see what happens. I wouldn't give 2 cents for it, but maybe one of 0's people would charge it on their EBT card.

It didn’t sell because the shocks and springs in the right front are shot from all the weight in the front passenger seat.

“5.7-liter Hemi V-8 engine and automatic transmission, such as the one listed for auction, gets a combined 18 mpg (15 in the city, 22 on the highway)”

Doesn’t sound very green—hey look, a squirrel!

I’d love to buy it and donate it to the “Mythbusters” so they could do something, well creative; in the name of science education of course.

Give it away for free or tear it down and redistribute the parts amongst the peeps. LOL

No, just further proof that FUBO isn’t really Black; it isn’t a Cadillac.

1. One it is a Chrysler, for God’s sake.

2. Two, it’s a 2005 Chrysler.

3. Three, not everyone wants to drive a car with Obama DNA squirted all over the rear seats.

4. Again its a stinking Chrysler.

None of their stuff has impressed me since they decided to ghettoize and/or make their vehicles look like cheap, ugly clown cars.

That fake bill says “one million” yet the dollar number amounts are for one billion.

This may be Obama’s plan to get US creditors off our backs. “No, see the bill says one million, but on our books we said we gave you a billion...”
