Backup presidential limo on its way for Obama in Israel after fuel filling screw up

One of the limousines in Barack Obama's fleet has broken after reports that it was mistakenly filled with diesel

One of the limousines in Barack Obama's fleet has broken after reports that it was mistakenly filled with the wrong fuel at the start of the US president's visit to Israel.

Another limo is on its way from Jordan, according to Ma'an News agency, citing Israel's Channel 10, to replace one that was filled with diesel instead of gasolene.

I really dont know what to say.

Ooops.

...better double-check the fuel in his aircraft before he returns home too.

What better way to mobilize tha AA population

as well as the screaming lib's in this nation than have something happen to their savior that could be blamed upon the Palestinians? Or perhaps the big "O" is going to try to demonstrate his ability to walk on water.

If not us than who?

I could not care less...

about the limo malfunction...

I am just commenting because I have been to the Kingdom of Jordan and I LOVE that land. Reading this reminds me of my time there, taking a taxi from Amman to Beirut, having to travel through Syria.

All I can say is, get a Visa and Government Permission to enter places, first! ;-)

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.

It's called ... forget your citizens and, bombs away!

It's also called screw your people who really love the middle east and do not want war... and please bomb Syria and Iran for us so we do not have to debate this any more in congress... and then we can jump into another money wasting, but job creating war!

I guess they forgot to fill it up with the blood of the innocent, as is proper protocol.

I NEW IT!

When I lived in Cincinnati, in the 80's, they did the same thing to a turbocharged (not diesel turbine)gas, single engine Cessna. It went down on takeoff, killing all inside!

I guess they ought to learn how to say diesel in all languages!

Good

Point since it can obviously make one hell of a difference. I can't believe they didn't have someone smart enough on the team to be watching out for this stuff.

Smart and creepy/sinister/diabolical don't mix.

A Gypsy side show

A Hypnotic evil puppet show, Beware, the cost of admission is low, the puppet show very entertaining, but CAUTION: While you are distracted, entranced; they will rob you and probably worse.

It is best to not attend.

Be aware that the puppet master behind the curtian thinks very low of the audiance and vacillates in a schophrenic spiral between feelings of godliness (ultitimate power), and feelings of fear of being found out and held to account for all the intentional harm caused to the audience.

Plant a seed.

Jordan?

How do we just happen to end up with a spare limo in Jordan? This sounds like part of a plot from a Vince Flynn book.

Wouldn't surprise me if we

Wouldn't surprise me if we have a limo within every 100 mile (or some odd number) radius of area on the globe. I mean, would they really fly a limo with them everywhere they go?

yes they do take them in

yes they do take them in those large tank transporters like 747 tanker

Surprise

Would flying a limo with them everywhere they go really surprise you, given the state of affairs as they are these days?

What the hell is Obama doing in Israel anyway?

He is begging for something to happen, or something has been already staged to happen to later blame on someone else. We are in a sequester. This trip is nothing short of ridiculous.

I don't have a good feeling about this visit.

Nothing good can come of it.

I agree
