Store owner turns away Biden over Obama’s ‘you didn’t build that’ comments?

~ The Rebel ~ 2012/08/16 17:55:05

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.

“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 told the local station.

According to McMurray, his decision stemmed from the president’s Roanoke, Va. speech in which Obama stressed that entrepreneurs owed others for their successes.

    good for him for not selling out....maybe, at some point, this administration will get the right idea?
    but let's not hold our breath on that one.

    The fallout from Obama's socialist diatribe "YOU DIDN'T BUILD THAT" has only begun to take shape and multiply. It may well be remembered as the statement that ended his presidency, just as "hope & change" catapulted him to victory. I applaud the courage of the store owner!
