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,

Pointing how many people and what it takes to protect Obama is a losing game, it was tried with Bush and with Clinton. Face it, we have many enemies so the Prez needs to be protected.
The squad of personal chefs is to keep the Wookie happy. I'm sure Obama is just fine on cocaine and cigarettes.
It's good to be king.
That’s of course the car every Israeli will have to have when Barry’s ideas for their country go through.
Seriously I have no problems with the President or in this case pResent being as well protected as humanly possible.
I do question the need for a squad of chefs and 500 staffers though. I know British cooking is not the greatest but... really?
“Dressed in a pirate hat, eyepatch and striped red shirt”
Truth in advertising. If not for George Soros and the media, he’d be boarding boats off the coast of Somalia for a living.
And no virulent enemies against the Queen and the British PM?
Well, American presidents have always had a good deal of security, but Obama appears to have about ten times more than any of his predecessors.
Why is he going to England again? To insult the Queen?
I want our President to be safe. But, this sounds excessive.
I have seen vids of some 50 caliber rounds piercing 8" of mild steel. 8" of armor is not impregnable. And in the case of bombs, the danger escalates. I understand why he is a bit paranoid. The more bad people who hate you the higher the risk. He has made a lot of powerful enemies over the past year. Especially in the Middle East.

wasnt this photo proven to be photoshopped ???
Aren't there any good chefs in the UK?
I didn’t read anything that this trip had been planned for a long time - is this some sort of mea culpa from Prince Charles for not inviting our PINO to Prince Will & Kate’s wedding? How will Barry and Michelle outdo themselves on the thoughtful gifts they brought the last time???? Inquiring minds want to know.
I get really torked when I read how much this baloney costs the American taxpayers - for what earthly purpose other than reminding us that we now have a monarchy here in the USA.
Hah - you made me laugh - thanks!
Six doctors??? BUT Britain has “free” health care for all!!! Sounds like Bambi doesn’t want to chance it with the NHS, doesn’t it? Is he sick or something? SIX DOCTORS???????????
Four miles to a gallon.
We get $4.50 a gallon and World Crap, oops I meant World Class, Volts.
Why don’t they show him in his golfing attire and/or vacation clothes? That’s where he is 99.99% of the time.
