For all the talk this year about whether or not President Barack Obama supports small business owners, apparently there’s no satisfying those small business owners with actual patronage.
Mike Cunningham II owns one of the oldest beer tents you’ve never heard of at the Iowa State Fair … that is until President Obama stopped by, had a couple of beers, and was criticized for costing what Cunningham estimated as $25,000 in beer sales because his Secret Service detail effectively shut the Bud Tent down during his visit.
Folks, you can’t waste that piss away that kind of publicity. (Unless that publicity is, of course, an ice cold Bud Light.)
But, while the beer may not have been flowing as well as Cunningham would have liked, at least one person managed to get drunk, judging by Sen. Chuck Grassley’s tweeting:
“How does PresO justify havin secret service shut down the bud tent @ the state fair nd the owner told me he loses 50,000 n 1 nite.”
