Virginia bakery owner to Biden: “Oh, I didn’t build this? Is that what you’re telling me?”

This is my feel-good story of the day. Caroline May reports:

A Virginia business owner refused a Vice President Joe Biden campaign visit at his three month old bakery on Wednesday because of President Barack Obama’s recent “you didn’t build that” comments.

Chris McMurray, the founder and owner of “Crumb and Get it” in Radford, turned away the vice president’s advance team when they approached him about using his establishment as a stop on the way to a campaign rally in Blacksburg, Va., WDBJ7 reports…

“Very simply, ‘you didn’t build that’” McMurray said, explaining his reasoning. “Speaking of small businesses and entrepreneurs all across this country, and actually last night my wife was up all night. No sleep, she’s worked a full 24 hours.”

This guy isn’t an abstraction. He’s not a theory. Neither are all the other small-business owners who exist outside the confines of Obama’s bubble.

And they’re paying attention to what he says about them.

Okay, libs, you know what to do now.



Dig up Chris McMurray’s tax records!

BTW, I’m not surprised that the Secret Service went back and gave McMurray some business. They’re sworn to protect these guys. Not necessarily to like them.

P.S. And how do you like that: Today business is booming at Crumb and Get It.
