In what could be one of the most embarrassing bloopers of Barack Obama's tenure as President of the United States so far could be the pictures you see right here of the Presidential limo known as "The Beast" breaking down and being towed in Israel. The 8 ton monster getting only 8 miles to the gallon, reinforced with armor plating, ballistic glass and Kevlar apparently was filled with gasoline instead of its standard diesel fuel and that lead to the embarrassing breakdown.

When the White House limo driver, who is paid a handsome $175,000 a year, went to start the limousine this morning it wouldn't turn over and then it was discovered there was gas in the tank and fuel lines instead of diesel fuel. At the present time no one is saying who actually made the mistake of filling the limo with the wrong fuel, but it will most certainly be a very costly mistake as all the fuels lines will have to be replaced along with the fuel injection system and a through cleaning of the engine which will probably require it being rebuilt.

With all the high tech gadgetry that supposedly protects the President in his $1.4 million limo, it was taken out of service by simply putting the wrong kind of fuel in it. We have limits to our technological wizardry, don't we.
