CuriousJockAZ saidHA! Yet another thing blamed on BUSH LOL! Can't we just blame the Irish?
Webster666 saidActually, if you run aground, almost always, everybody survives.
Where, if you drive the economy off a cliff, as the Republicans did, well, you see where we still are, today.
Art_Deco saidI haven't found anything about this in the news. Please post links if they exist. An amateur YouTube that may have been mislabeled is hardly evidence. I suspect what was mistakenly identified was another car in the Presidential motorcade bottoming out over the exit ramp.
Art_Deco saidCORRECTION, CORRECTION CORRECTION! Trust your Art and his photo analysis skills!
(Corrects to remove reference to the president and his wife abandoning the vehicle after it became wedged. The White House later said they were not in the car at the time.)
May 23 (Reuters) - The U.S. Presidential Cadillac, nicknamed "The Beast" for its bomb-proof features, failed to make it out of the U.S. Embassy in Dublin on Monday when it became stuck on a ramp.
The incident occurred in front of waving crowds as Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, were leaving the embassy en route to his ancestral home in County Offaly.
The White House later said the couple were not in the vehicle at the time it became wedged.
Specially built for Obama, the General Motors (GM.N) vehicle boasts its own oxygen supply in case of chemical attack and armour-plated doors
I guess I'm not so old after all, huh? And I don't "suspect" something unless I've given it some thought, but have insufficient evidence to draw a conclusion. Unlike some people I know.

Indeed it is, since that particular car is a holdover from the previous Bush Administration, like most of Obama's problems, and is often used for international visits. Here's a pic of the present Obamamobile, a 2009 model that debuted in the inauguration, but was also built during the Bush Admin. Note the different grill from the one in Ireland.
And BTW, I'm not even sure Obama was inside, since the wrong flags are flying from it, I believe one the Irish, instead of the US & Presidential. I believe Obama was the second limo back. Whose grill looks more like the current official limousine in this pic.
