“You didn’t build that” continues to generate business owner backlash against the administration. In Virginia yesterday, during Joe Biden’s dramatic attempt to return to the 21st century from interstellar gaffe travel, he got burned during re-entry:
Chris McMurray’s bakery has been open only since May, barely three months.
Wednesday morning, advance teams for Vice President Joe Biden walked in.
“I approached her she said Joe Biden is coming to town today,” McMurray said.
“Crumb and Get It” is a mom and pop store. Literally. Chris and his wife Kelly run the place and need all the business they can get.
McMurray said the Vice President’s entourage got to the point and made its pitch.
“She said they have selected ‘Crumb and Get It” to be his stop on his way to Blacksburg and was wondering if that was ok.”
Here’s the part that might make other business owners crazy.
“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.
“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.”
What’s Biden going to say when he shows up to today’s meeting with Barack and Hillary with no cookies and donuts? It won’t bode well for his chance of remaining on the ticket (Biden’s meeting expected to go something like this).
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.
