(Via Drudge) Executive summary: Obama goes to Iowa State Fair. Obama visits Bud Tent, buys a round for ten people in tent – except 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.
