Bud tent owner says Obama visit cost him $25,000

The Des Moines Register follows up on consternation at the beer tent at the Iowa State Fair when President Obama stopped by, forcing the tent to shut down for security reasons.
Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) tweeted on Monday, "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," and "Who does PresO think he is. He comes to StateFair the SecretService shut down all small business vendors depriving them of income wo compsat"
From the Register:

It’s incidents like this that resonate amongst the local populace. Small businessmen by the very nature of being who they are, are out there talking and dealing with the people on a regular basis.
This stuff does come out in conversation and gets passed along from one person to another like gossip. This was a stupid move by the President and his security detail. It shows that they are afraid of the citizens.
Politically it was even worse: “Let’s go out and rally the people with our rhetoric and piss on their economy at the same time!”
He didn’t build that business anyway - someone else did.
Believe king hussein yet?
The ultimate inconvenience to Liberty and Prosperity.
He does this every time he comes here to New york city where I unfortunately live. Because of his extreme arrogance, I assume because he gets off causing havoc for millions of people,he ALWAYS comes during rush hour..If it’s the morning he will come at 8am - 9am making people hours late for work, which I don’t have to guess have caused some people to lose their jobs, which obviously he has no problem with. Or if it’s the afternoon he will come exactly at 5pm, usually on a Friday when people are trying to get away for the weekend. And this is not to mention the 1000s of cars that are towed to make room for the Marxist Gods entry which is never announced ahead of time. For the past year this has gone on almost every two weeks so some liberal a-hole can buy a $40,000 dinner.
This has been the hallmark of zero's presence ...
From the very beginning he surrounded himself with muscle .. the more intimidating the better.
Holder's refusal to prosecute the new black panthers should have been the clarion call to all non-blacks ... the racist regime was in power and they were going to do whatever they damn well pleased.
By contrast, John Kennedy was assasinated because he truly believed he was loved and he trusted the people.
If I extrapolate correctly, that November day in '63 was the start of America's plunge into being terrorized.
We now can't do much of anything without being surveiled, searched or intimidated by something that was developed or instituted for our "safety"
Reason #4 why I left NYC-NJ 23yrs ago.
If he had shut down the Bud Light tent where I live there would have been a riot.
..because he believes you didn’t put up that tent...and it’s his, all his...
Reminds me of Napoleon the Pig.
If he’s not happy he was able to bask in the nearness of the Won, he’s obviously racist. /s
It seems as though there could only be one of two things going on here.
1: Obama does not want to win the election so he's purposely sabotaging his chances.
2: Obama and his ilk are nothing but arrogant pompous idiots!
“You may have built this business, but I shut it down in no time! Ha, ha! Die greedy capitalist!”
Reminds me of my old job. The day before, there will be announcement of an executive visit scheduled at 3:30pm on a Friday afternoon and the meeting is mandatory. Additionally causal Friday is canceled. One time, one executive visit was a retired Navy Admiral and who was full of himself. It was a 4pm meeting on Friday and he was 45 minutes late. People were pretty livid.
> Or if its the afternoon he will come exactly at 5pm, usually on a Friday when people are trying to get away for the weekend.
Want to remark also, people like Dear Leader would prefer that we all work for a large corporation where we could be more easily controlled versus be independent with a small business.
When he heard Obama was going to be in proximity - put up Romney signs
