Obama's Armored Limo BOTTOMS OUT in Ireland

5/23/2011 10:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

President Obama's Secret Service probably needs a whole new set of underwear -- after the Prez's armored limo CRASHED into a nasty speed bump in Dublin today ... and was instantly immobilized.

Talk about luck of the Irish.

UPDATE: A rep for the Secret Service claims Obama was NOT in the vehicle that bottomed out due to a "slight miscalculation" -- telling us, it was a spare limousine carrying staff and support personnel only. There were no injuries.

First the woman's helicopter nearly crashes, now this guy's car dead-stops. Tense moments in the lives of...strange people.

This is the absurdity of the security run amok. Our Embassies look like freakin nuclear bunkers and this tank high-centers and becomes a security risk.

This was the last administrations over-the-top madness and panic driven counter-measures...Makes us look like friady-cats ferfook sake.

Why did the American taxpayers waste money flying the Beast over there if the president was NOT going to use it????

It seems to me that they should have put hydraulic shocks on it like some of the air shocks on some of the low riders, to raise it up a bit more for such things, then this would have been a piece of cake. Even if it happened, it would be nothing to get out of that with the right hydraulic shocks to raise you up off of it, and this over it, or make the car with the suspension of a humvee.

Put Obama under the back tires, that will give it traction.

A BUMP stopped the shamefully designed FIRST CAR,
but our city's BIG POTHOLES will destroy IT.

TIME TO GET A "TOWING TRUCK" AS PART OF THEIR CONVOY.

Police are indeed genius when it comes to escaping from their enemies.
