Radford, Virginia "Crumb and Get it" Business Owner Chris McMurray Turns Down Joe Biden

By the Left Coast Rebel  

I had to chuckle just a bit when I saw this news story this evening. Apparently Gaffe-tastic Joe Biden's taxpayer-funded entourage popped into a little mom-and-pop bakery shop on a campaign stop in Radford, Virginia and asked the owner of the place if they could host Biden.

Business owner Chris McMurray said 'no' to Joe...

"Crumb and Get It" is a mom and pop store. Literally. Chris and his wife Kelly run the place and need all the business they can get.

McMurray said the Vice President's entourage got to the point and made its pitch.

"She said they have selected 'Crumb and Get It" to be his stop on his way to Blacksburg and was wondering if that was ok."

Here's the part that might make other business owners crazy.

"This is an opportunity of a lifetime but essentially I said 'No offense to you or the campaign but I just decline you guys coming in here. At that time she said 'Are you sure? There's going to be a lot of press, a lot of activity,’" McMurray said.

Why in the world would a new business owner say "no" to a photo op with the Vice President of the United States?

McMurray said it was President Obama's recent remarks about small business and who built what.

"Very simply, ‘you didn't build that’” McMurray said. “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."

If I owned "Crumb and Get it" or an establishment that either the You-Didn't-Build-That! President or his gaffe- and plug-tastic sidekick wanted to "grace" their presence with, I'd be right behind Mr. McMurray's polite yet resolute 'no' reply. It's a free country and we still have the right to do this.

Hat tip: Proof Positive

This administration is the most bigoted, openly hostile and dangerous administration entrepreneurs across America have ever had to face.

  1. I hope the man now gets as much business as he can possibly handle!

  2. Serving up pulled pork, beans and cheesy potatoes for the press at the president’s campaign event this evening, Murty wore a T-shirt that said, “Government Didn’t Build my Business, I Did.”


  3. This man had principles. Unlike Washington and Chicago Boys
