Gotta love a person that stands on principles against a 'president' that disparages hard work, favors criminal illegal aliens, and panders to the lowest common demominator by promising them other peoples money. (Of course the bedwetting libs will accuse the guy of being a racist) It's time that we vote the inept, corrupt clown Obama and his idiot sidekick out of office in November.

On July 13, 2012, President Barack Obama told an audience in Roanoke, Virginia that “If you’ve got a business – you didn’t build that.” Many business owners, especially small business owners who work 70-80 a week and more to build and maintain their business, took offense the president’s statement, and rightly so.

A month later, Vice President Joe Biden was campaigning in Virginia when his advance team entered a small bakery in Radford, about an hour’s drive southwest of Roanoke. They approached Chris McMurray, the owner of Crumb and Get It, and told him that the vice president was coming through town and they had selected his bakery as a stop for Biden. They explained that it would be a great opportunity for his business with free advertising and photos of him and the VP.

Without any hesitation, McMurray politely informed Biden’s advance team that he was opting to refuse the business and publicity because he felt strongly about Obama’s statement that he didn’t build his business. Both he and his wife work almost nonstop in the small bakery that only opened in May and while the publicity would have helped his business, he felt his principles were more important.
