Radford VA Small Business Owner Chris McMurray Declines Biden Entourage Visit Over Obama “You Didn’t Build That” Comment
Radford VA resident Chris McMurray, who owns “Crumb and Get It,” is allowing Mitt Romney’s false campaign ad to be his voice of reason. He turned down a request from Joe Biden’s entourage to stop at his business, which has only been open for nearly three months. He declined the request because he doesn’t agree with the Obama administration’s policies. Okay, that’s fair game, but he used the “didn’t build that” lie being perpetuated by the Romney campaign to reach that conclusion. Come on man, use your head. What’s next?
“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.” Source
The Secret Service took the high road. They still purchased cookies and cupcakes from him. Well, what say you about Chris McMurray’s actions?
