#rsrh QotD, He’s Got His Public Response RIGHT HERE edition.

(Via Drudge) Executive summary: Obama goes to Iowa State Fair.  Obama visits Bud Tent, buys a round for ten people in tentexcept for the guy holding an Romney sign (because… well, I should be classy and not say ‘because the President’s a dick that way’) – and then the President goes off.  Total cost to owner of the Bud Tent? 25 grand [from lost business: the Secret Service had the tent secured for two hours]. Senator Grassley happened to hear about this while at the ISF himself, and put together a few rather pointed Tweets on the topic; said topic is apparently now making the rounds in Iowa.

And this is the part that made me laugh:

 The Bud Tent owner added that he hasn’t yet replied to a phone message from Obama’s staff asking him to respond publicly to Grassley’s tweet.

I suspect that they’ve figured out the owner’s response by now anyway.

PS: Moral of the story? If you’re going to suck up 25 grand’s worth of somebody else’s business*, make sure that the guy isn’t from the other party.  If you do it anyway, don’t ask him to push back on your behalf later. It’s that last bit that demonstrates the clown school mentality so prevalent in Obama for America these days…

*And remember, Barry: you didn’t build that.

    I can’t view twitter from work, but I really wish I could get this. Why do 10 beers cost $25 grand.

    Please tell me why Obama wouldn’t buy that guy from the romney campaign a drink. That is so petty. Of all the things he has done that are so morally wrong, this stands out because it is so petty.

    I can’t believe this guy is so unbelievably petty. The incredible shrinking President.

  • Skip says:

    @Earlgrey, obama wouldn’t buy the Romney guy a beer because he is that petty… The article says that he did pay for the 10 beers, but they shut the tent down during primetime for two hours in order to arrange the photo op.

    Yeah…that’s our “The private sector is doing fine” President!

    Keep an eye on Charlotte, Moe. Same type of thing is planned there during the convention…much larger scale.

    Should work wonders for the Dems in a RTW state!

  • Earlgrey says:

    Oh thanks Moe. Most people do get Twitter so I can see why you would have left that out.

  • OU812 says:

    Holy smoke – have anyone ever seen a member of the Federal govt behave as unclassy as this bunch? Anyone? Going once, twice…

  • Lourae says:

    Heh. Keep it up, President Jackass. Keep showing who you really are.

  • Finrod says:

    I always enjoy it when Obama goes to one of these events, trying to pretend to be an average Joe. He inevitably flubs it to the extent that it reveals more about him than he’d prefer to reveal.

  • […] well, I should be classy and not say ‘because the President’s a dick that way’)” Moe Lane quips. Too bad — the fiercely oikophobic president missed a golden opportunity to try and score […]
