Whoops! The jokes write themselves after this snafu in Israel this morning. Obama’s limo, known as “The Beast,” failed to start after the driver filled up with the wrong type of fuel.

The limo had to be towed.

Hardest hit? CNN reporter Sara Sidner. “Not sure what’s more embarrassing,” she tweeted. “#Obama’s #limo driver put petrol instead of diesel and it wouldn’t start or having to #report it.”

Really, Sara? And was having to report on the limo situation more embarrassing than your dubious claim that a four-year-old Palestinian boy was killed by an Israeli airstrike? More embarrassing than repeatedly being called out for bad journalism?

Gosh, she really won’t like this mockery then.

    I guess they shouldn’t have stopped at a self service station and let Obama fill it up himself.

        He might have originally been posted to the White House Tour Brigade but got pulled because of, you know, the sequester. I think this might be an automotive Freudian slip!

      So is it the bike part because that involves exercise that the conservatives hate? Or the helmet part because that protects the brain which conservatives don’t use anyways? Or a little bit of both? Or is it just that anything involving Obama sends you into a sputtering incoherent rage because of your Obama derangement syndrome? Or all of the above?

      • https://twitter.com/tweetyuo Tangchung

        It’s Obama’s limo broke down and he needs a ride. Some times a cigar is a cigar.

        Lighten up, Luke, we’re just having some fun here. Just today, I read a vile, obscenity-laced “open letter” to Bush/Cheney. The stuff you’re objecting to just goes with the job…

        • June Clinkenbeard

          Oh, so you read the Tomas Young letter too? I have been wondering what others thought of it as it’s from a disabled vet, people want to be respectful. I understand that but thought the letter was flawed. I support his right to air his grievances but struggle with the inaccuracies in the letter.

      • Catchance

        Ummm… let me think. No.
        There’s a big difference between sputtering incoherent rage (see liberal tweets) and making fun of someone because he’s such a dork.

      • phxtiger2

        Observation leads me to believe that it’s liberals who don’t use their brain. They simply do what the “talking point of the day” from their leaders instructs. As far as incoherent rage, that seems to be more of a liberal trait, too.

        Nope. It needs to be a Chevy Volt. They can customize a limo by stringing as many as they want, but definitely a Chevy Volt. It’s the karma car for Obama.

    wait a minute…. the fuel for the presidential limo is a “private stock” and shipped in guarded barrels with the limo itself. They do not go to a normal gas station to fill up and certainly not in a foreign country. Something doesn’t sound right with this “story” IMHO

      I DEMAND to know the recipe for the fuel brewed in the White House! Let’s start a petition!

      Never! She has to tow a banner for the administration by spouting favorable reports. That’s why the media outlets, TV, newspapers are going down the tubes, they rarely give viewers any news that would harm the administration. They may as well run a canned admiration report, because the real news is a thing of the past. Fox News and the internet are the only place to find truth in reporting.

    How many times in the past four years have we heard from the “comedian” class that this guy just wasn’t funny, so they couldn’t possibly tell any jokes about him? Personally, if he weren’t so dangerous, I’d say he’s the funniest joke we’ve ever had as President.

    was globull warming. You see, globull warming caused the climate to
    shift, which in turn caused the sequester, therefore causing the driver
    to put gas in the tank, instead of diesel.
