President Obama stopped by the Iowa State Fair yesterday and bought voters beer at the Bud Tent.

“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 president is visiting Iowa as part his “Ground Force One” bus tour of the state.
