VA Bakery Owner Says "No" to Biden Photo Op Because of President Obama's Small Business Remarks
A Virginia bakery owner is making national headlines for saying that he would prefer that Vice President Joe Biden not stop by his shop during a campaign trip. It seems that the VP and his staff wanted to do a photo op at the cupcake shop called, ‘Crumb and Get It.’
The owner acknowledges that it’s a new store and that he could really use the business, but said that he could just not say “yes” because he disagrees with Obama’s recent remarks on small businesses. "Very simply, ‘you didn't build that’,” Chris 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."
Wall Street Journal’s Stephen Moore weighed in on this issue during today’s America’s Newsroom. He said he agrees with this businessman, saying, “I don’t think that the White House completely gets it.
How insulted entrepreneurs and small business owners feel towards that statement that President Obama said … bottomline here, I think the president has a small business problem.”
Moore believes this bakery owner has become the "Joe the Plumber" of this election.
