    Default Why no reaction ?

    An Irish speed ramp is all it took to immobilise Obamas car. Why has that incident gone largely unnoticed ?? Even if only to ridicule it ?

    Look up the details of the car if you're so inclined. It fitted with something like 5 inched of military grade armour plating, has its own self contained climate sealed off from the outside, can run on flat tyres, bullit proof glass so thick that very little natural light gets in, has rocket launchers of some sort, plus other toys.

    And yet it's all rendered useless by a ramp that it got beached on. Plus I wasn't impressed by the SS guys who took ages to react in the first place, then kinda stood around looking at the car, scratching their heads for a while. They're the bloody SS for gods sake. Shouldn't they have a well drilled routine for what to do when the car gets wedged on a ramp ??!

    Anyway, scarcely a word about it in the news or the papers. Why ?? Because if I were the guy responsible for presidential transport safety I think I should be fired.

    If the ramp didn't get it a pot hole would have eventually .: lol
    Between two evils, I always pick the one I never tried before.
    People who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do .: doc

    The secret service must have experience with all sorts of terrorist threats and murder plots on the president. But only in Ireland will the presidents special car get stuck on a ramp coming out of their own embassy! As I said - only in Ireland! Bet you the secret service wasn't prepared for that!!

    Good post. I was wondering the same thing. Along with the $60 million helicopter that couldn't take off again because of 12ft high walls in Osama's compound, not a good few weeks for American hi-tech toys.

    To be fair it was only a decoy car,the pres had left in another car prior to this happening.The car had five inch doors and it weighed a ton so it wasn't really that shocking that it failed to get up the ramp.
    I have lived a life of regrets.
