I read a story earlier about Obama's limo breaking down in Israel due to the wrong fuel. The Article said the limo was brought From Washington?? WTH??? Whether or not this is long standing practice, I do not know. But it is ridiculous!!!

I do not need to "take it up" with anyone, hon, I am sharing an opinion on a message board.


Quoting Citygirlk:

To protect the president? Well then maybe you need to take that up with the head of the secret service. 

Quoting LoveMyBoyK:

Yes, i know, and I think it is massively excessive and unnecessary.





Quoting Citygirlk:

They do that whenever he leaves to another country because the "beast" is one of a kind from what I heard that car is nearly indestructible.

Don't hon me. 

From reading your responses I can tell you have a issue with it so why not do something about it.

Like it or not the only way to truly maintain the President's safety is to maintain complete control over his motorcade and transportation.  "Renting" a limo would pose way too many unknown risks as the secret service would not have complete control over the vehicle at all times.  

Think how easy it would be for a terrorist group to get access to the vehicles prior to his arrival and plant a variety of items on the vehicle.   

While these may be risks you are willing to take with the President and his family, I personally think it's a risk not worth taking regardless of who may be the President at the time.
