If you can´t see the "bumps" hit "Google image" using the two words 'bump road' , I found plenty of them.
Bump road - lombada.
In fact, the item referred to the "headache" the President would have after the recent events in Egypt with a new challenge, poised by the attack on the Libya embassy.

So, it´s a figure of speech, it can bring to us the imagery of a car going smoothly in a road, you are talking leisurely when...you see a speed bump right away! you need to
pass over it at 2 mi./h (3 km/h) but you were at 62 mi./h (100 km/h).
Talk about a headache!
