Virginia Baker Swamped With Business Since Telling Biden “No!” (Video)

Earlier this week Radford, Virginia business owner Chris McMurray refused to host Joe Biden at his bakery Crumb and Get it. McMurray said he didn’t agree with the Obama administration’s policies.

Today “Crumb and Get It” in Radford had to shut down at 1:15 p.m.
They ran out of food.
Chris McMurray said his business has been overwhelmed since he told Joe Biden “No!”
WDBJ7 reported:

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.”

When “Crumb and Get It” said ‘no’, “River City Grill,” just around the corner, said ‘yes’ and has the pictures to prove it, and didn’t care about the politics.

“If you want to throw in some libertarians as well that’s fine too. Stop in as well,” Chris Bell said. “Just bring your money. Sure, right!

Back at the bakery, a couple of guys said they’d hoped to see Biden and didn’t care that the VP had been turned away.

“I mean it really doesn’t matter to me. Everyone has their own views so I love the food here anyway. I agree. Everybody’s different so I could care less,” said Spenser Critterton of Radford.

Here’s the back story, we’re told that shortly after Crumb and Get It told Biden’s advance people ‘no’ — the secret service walked in and told Chris McMurray ”Thanks for standing up and saying ‘no’ — then they bought a whole bunch of cookies and cupcakes.

McMurray said he’s hoping folks will understand he just didn’t want to be part of a photo op for an administration whose policies he doesn’t agree with.

Even the secret service backed him.

    There must be a class they send all these lefties to. They’re all using the same tactics, and they just happen to be the exact same tactics the Obama campaign is using … they can’t discuss the issues, so they just smear and discredit their opponents.

    The people who frequent this blog know who’s who though, and they know most of us would never say any of these vile things, so Mr. Moby really isn’t fooling anyone. What a sad, pathetic existence it must be, spending evenings trolling blogs and impersonating people. I wonder if it pays well?

    mean, GP’s filter cuts off url’s with a s s no spaces for heavens sake..


  • SturJen

    Dear Troll trying to pretend to be a real human posting on GP:
    what is and why do you want us to go there? Is it because your mommy won’t cook your hotpockets the way you like it, or that you dropped hotpocket juice on your wang while jerking off to Nancy Pelosi?

    Oh I know, that’s pretty low even for me. Sometimes even I get snarky.

    Go to the Crumb and Get it FB site and like them. They do like the support they are receiving. It’s good to see Small Business Owners standing up for what is right and telling Obama to F off.

    AND, he did this without GOVERNMENT HELP – AID or ASSISTANCE! Obama did not send regulators to his business, Obama did not give him loans but he did not give Obama campaign contributions either.

    All I have to say is the loons (left) are so stressed out that they are totally losing it; ergo the nutcase statements that they make. I say, let them keep it up because the more they continue their tirads, the more it makes the conservatives, that even accoring to dem pollster Gallup admit are DOUBLE the loons on the left, adamant about voting in November. (By the way, if you live in the upper midwest, you know that loons are what the locals call the “ducks” (according to the enviros) are birds that can never fly but just flap their wings wildly attempting to fly.

    I see November “from my porch”!!! Keep it up, lefty loons!!!

    Let me be clear, you did not built it! Little business needs 0bamaCare!

    Little business needs more taxes and red tape. Little business needs end of life counseling.

    I have slapped them in the face and spit in their eye. I still don’t get any respect!

    I don’t understand why my campaign is swirling around the bowl of the flusher! Why shouldn’t I just quit; take my campaign funds and move to the Isle of Man!

    If you don’t send me $30,000.00 before midnight I will declare my campaign a failure and I take your money and scat. My donors stink like a sewer hole and I stink worse. Good day.

    Thank you my good man for standing behind your principles, it would have been very easy to stay quiet and host “Joe the country idiot.” There is nothing wrong with having beliefs and standing behind them, unfortunately evil doesn’t want people to stand up to it and will kick and scream all the way down the drain. I’ll take 600 cupcakes to go!!

    Beer tent guy making a “forced contribution” to the Obama campaign by losing $25K in business due to a campaign stop, other business being boycotted because their business is in a picture used by the Obama campaign, yes, small business will be a hotbed of Dem support this November.

    Now we should start posting lists of all business who will refuse to participate in any Dem campaign event (not just Obama; ANY Democrat candidate) to give them the praise and rewards they deserve for standing up for all Americans.

  • thomass

    It sucks for those secret service guys that bit about them keeps being reported…. Obama had some fantasies about being Lincoln when he cashiered his General in Afghanistan for saying something he didn’t like (vs. actual insubordination… which is refusing to follow orders or policies)… Lincoln had to deal with real actual insubordination btw… Obama just has a glass jaw, a distorted sense of self esteem, and doesn’t know jack about history…

    Anyway; if it is true about the secret service people I wish we killed that part of the story to keep them out of trouble. No one can afford to loose a job in our third recovery summer….

    I wonder how long it will take Biden or Obama to run this guy out of business?
    They don’t take these type of actions anyway but personnel. Remember Joe the plumber? Palin.
    I see him invaded by Lawyers with a bevy of tax-men. Every thing he has done in his life opened up like a three bypass patient. It will be interesting to see if this persons livelihood still remains in a year. I give him big points for withstanding the Obama political machine.
