Obama’s New Limo is an Armored “Cocoon”

Made by Cadillac.

“One news agency, noting its 8-inch-thick doors, says the limo can withstand a ‘direct hit from an asteroid.’ But GM spokeswoman Joanne K. Krell laughed off the comments. ‘And it will fix you a latte if you ask,’ she jokes.”

A $25 billion latte, if you include the cost of the GM buyout.

Meanwhile, a historical side note:

“In 1965, Lyndon Johnson was the first president to ride in a bulletproof limo in an inaugural parade, less than two years after his predecessor, John F. Kennedy, was shot and killed while riding in an open car.”
