Obama: Beer for thee, but not for GOP http://news.yahoo.com/obama-buys-be...-165012958.html President Barack Obama is beating Gov. Mitt Romney on the so-called âbeer testâ of likeability, but the president doesnât want to have beer with Republicans. A revealing moment came Monday, when Obama told a tent of drinkers at the Iowa State Fair that heâd buy a round of beers for 10 people, but not for one person carrying a sign of support for Gov. Mitt Romney. At the beer tent, the drinkers âstarted chanting, âfour more beers!ââ according to the pool report. âPotus said, âIâll tell you what, except for Romney sign, Iâll buy beers for ten people,ââ the report added. Obama also refused to eat pork cops until he asked for a knife and fork. The vignettes are minor, but the 2012 race is so close that every angle counts. Obamaâs epicurean tastes have caused problems for him on the campaign trail. In 2008, during a similar tour of Iowa, he complained about rising prices sought to prove his point by asking âAnybody gone into Whole Foods lately and see what they charge for arugula?â That year, he also declined to eat a Philly cheese steak while stumping for votes in Philadelphia, but instead snacked on gourmet ham that sold for $99.99 a pound. After much local jeering, he told supporters that âIâm going to get a cheesesteak the next time I come.â http://news.yahoo.com/obama-buys-be...-165012958.html Such expensive tastes but so petty.
