Obama’s Limo stalled, Secret Service says they don’t know the cause! Some say it was filled with Diesel Fuel. I know, It is the SEQUESTER! Those damned Republicans!
The limo failed to start, and required towing in Jerusalem at 10 a.m. local time. Obama, who landed in Tel Aviv around noon, was not in the country at the time the limo was towed. A second presidential limo was brought to transport Obama.
“We experienced mechanical trouble with one of the cars,” Edwin Donovan, a spokesman for the Secret Service, told a pool reporter traveling with Obama. “We don’t know the cause.”

Twitter Responds about Obama’s Limo Break Down
Regarding towing of Presidential limo, US officials doubt diesel fuel caused breakdown. It’s mechanical. And still being investigated.

The sequester caused Israel to stop selling diesel fuel. (New White House job posting: Limousine driver / $175K per year) #ObamaInIsrael
