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.

    I don’t know nuthin’ ’bout this sort of geologic thing but,

    aren’t there usual signs of an impending landslide or avalanche,
    y’know, like loose rock falling, snow slipping away, or something
    that precedes the main event- y’know whut I mean?

    #2 – That was uncalled for….

    Meanwhile, I’ll bet those Secret Service guys’ names don’t go public …. and if they do, I see a reassignment in their future.

    Jim I was hoping you’d cover this.

    Even Obama’s S.S. wants him gone and replaced with an honorable man.

    Jim, please do something about your site’s moby problem.
