The Car That Thinks It's A Tank: Inside Obama's 'Beast' Cadillac that is being flown from the U.S. to drive down the Mall By CHRIS GREENWOOD and REBECCA ENGLISH 23rd May 2011
An extraordinary entourage will accompany President Obama and his wife Michelle when they sweep into London tomorrow. The team of at least 500 will include White House aides, a six-doctor medical team and a squad of personal chefs. There will be more than 200 secret service agents, many of them armed. The President will travel in The Beast, his gigantic bomb-proof General Motors Cadillac with eight-inch thick armour-plating on its doors. The limousine will be accompanied by a motorcade of at least 20 vehicles plus a dozen police motorcycle outriders.
He will land in Britain on Air Force One. But if this picture is anything to go by, Barack Obama might prefer journeying by sea rather than plane. Dressed in a pirate hat, eyepatch and striped red shirt, the ten-year-old Obama was posing before a Halloween party. He is also decked out with a homemade sword, earrings and a drawn-on moustache and beard. The photo is part of an exhibition by residents of flats in Honolulu,

He brings blood. His blood. To a basement. Surrounded by SS agents.
Tingle Barry's greatest enemy (and nothing else is even a close second) is his own mouth. Any time he is not reading from a teleprompter under close supervision it damned near destroys his presidency.
And if he climbs into this lumbering roadblock he is locked in with it.
Is Al Gore supplying the carbon offsets for this fiasco?

I hope we never get a claustrophobic president.
Well, Barry & his minions are doing their best to bring that to pass by the way they are provoking everyone everywhere.
Did not find the video I saw but here is one of a 50bmg penetrating 2” steel plate.
The other vid I saw was thicker, will look further for it. It has been a while.
Another issue is of course the bullet itself. That is where the magic is on penetrating armor.
And the purpose for this trip is............?
He doesn’t have to mess with ethanol.
I remember reading a story told by a WWII aircraft gunner on a B-24 stationed in North Africa. He said some officer told them their flak jackets would stop a .50 caliber bullet.
Being the doubting type, he and a friend took some of the inserts from the jackets, drove out to the desert on a jeep with a .50 caliber. They put the inserts up against some concrete blocks, got back and fired a single round.
He said they only found small pieces of the flak jacket inserts and the concrete blocks. They also said they could see the bullet bouncing across the desert for over a mile.
Bwahahaha! New monitor, covered in sprayed beer, you know the drill. :-)
You can only eat fish and chips (limp, greasy, fries) for so many meals. Can't blame him for that - or bringing armed security.
He’s going to give the UK back all the pre revolutionary US land.
Do you have one?
I guess I should have used Battle Wagon.
Does anyone know the purpose of this visit? Is there any official business or is this just more vacay on our dime :(
The purpose is probably to visit the British Royal Museum, where Karl Marx concieved an idea that later became The Communist Manifesto.
This is Barry’s Hadj...
