The Beast is well-named.... That thing is seriously ugly (and I'm not automatically against big, chunky vehicles, at least not in terms of looks). It looks alright in that picture, but from some forward angles the front is truely hideous. Perhaps Obama should buy a Mini or something....

I've thought for some time that it would absolutely hilarious to see the Prime Minister of Canada buy a VW Beetle (armoured of course), and paint it like the Canadian flag. That makes me laugh just thinking about it. It would be just as funny if the US president did it though;). Gopher65talk 17:54, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

It may be bulletproof, but he has to get out sometime, unfortunatley. Keep your head down Barack, the crazies are after you! —69.70.245.76 00:13, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

"... a sealed interior that's invulnerable to chemical attack" Really? Does it have a pressurized cabin? --77.75.161.35 11:18, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Great VehicleEdit

The vehicle is a tank on wheels. Perfect for Obama's safety.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by TonyO16 (talkcontribs)

Edit

This is one area where Presidents continue to do product endorsement when they have agreed not to do so.

But even if they were allowed to do endorsements, why do Presidents (or the Secret Service) choose Cadillac and Lincoln or some other high-dollar brand? When a Republican rides around in a Cadillac, he just reinforces the stereotype that all Republicans are part of priviledged class who deserve to pay higher taxes because they have so much wealth that they don't need. When Obama rides around in a Cadillac, he inspires other African Americans to waste their money on high-cost brand names (ie Timberland, North Face, Louis Vuitton, etc) and leave themselves up to their neck in debt.

If they need to slap a brand on the Beast, why not set and example just make it a Chevy, Ford, or Dodge? Obama doesn't need an expensive brand to gain the respect of Americans or other world leaders.

Do you honestly think the government got this for free? Give me a break. The car companies are hurting so bad that I doubt, highly, that they would not pay for this car. DragonFire1024 (Talk to the Dragon) 03:44, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

Why is the car nicknamed "BEAST?" —Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.54.21.146 (talk) 10:45, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

Big Expensive Armoured SUV-like Transport. --Brian McNeil / talk 11:37, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

Who The Cap Fit Let Him SeeEdit

     The car actually came with time scales to show that Niccollo . M was rigth when he wrote that 'So as a prince is forced to know how to act like a beast he must learn from the lion and the fox, so one must be a lion to scare of wolfs and a fox to recognise traps;.
      And the beast car shows that this Kenya lion obama didnt recognise the beast trap car that has front designs that codes triple 6 with the front vent specification that must be inspired from the facts that it is 169 days from obama birthday of August fourth to 20th January and that the numerical values of 'One Hundred And Sixty Nine' =266 
      266 hence like 26th 6th month that tally with the numerical values of the word Eben=26 [and] Ada =6  and this two sword like scepter called Eben and Ada is power symbols of the Africa Edo People  that has Oba as number one citizen of the world
    And the first 3 digits in the name obama is Oba remaining Ma and the numerical values of MA = 14 So 2 digits divde 14 =7.7 and numerical values of the word POWER =77 and so obama waited for 77 days from 11th month 4th day to 20th January to collect power and then consequently spiritually fell so his supposedly human being legs upside down looks exactly like 77 with his head down with the beast numbers so what a fitting beast car for this world naked beast  incarnate riding devil-le beast ride 
   The 26th 6 is pronouced as two six and six hence the front design vent of the beast car recounts as six, six and six for the front bumper veils it also as that 
    The C.I.A should know that the Messiah who the greek call Jesus  cvalled Herod The Fox and he was a beast of his own nature and s fox codes as triple six due to the facts that f is 6th alphabets and 'O' is 15th and 'X' is the 24th alphabets and 1 plus 5 =6 and 2 plus 4 =6 and F=6 hence Fox codes 6,6,6, just as the numerical values of the word Oba = 18 and Oba is 3 alphabets so 3 divde 18 =6,6,6
