The Iowa State Fair became ground zero for Beergate 2012 yesterday after Obama bought a round of beers for supporters yet refused to buy one for a guy holding a Romney sign.
According to the Washington Examiner:
“Hey everyone who’s over 21, you gotta buy a beer!” Obama said, according to the pool report, as he stopped by the party tent where one person was holding a Romney sign
When asked if he was buying, Obama said, “Let me see what’s in my wallet.”
As the crowd cheered “Four more beers!” the president relented.
“I’ll tell you what, except for Romney sign, I’ll buy beers for ten people,” he said.
The Republican talking point here is surely that Obama doesn’t have enough money to provide beer TO ALL – but hey, if you’re showing up at an Obama event with a Romney sign: fuck you, buddy.
Speaking of which, what is a Romney supporter doing at a state fair? Surely, everyone who votes for Romney must be a millionaire, anyway. Why would anyone in the middle class vote for him? Take a look at the graph of the Ryan plan:
