VA Bakery Owner Won't Host Biden Thanks to 'You Didn't Build That' Remarks: "Vice President Joe Biden’s advance team approached the owner of a local Virginia mom and pop bakery -- “Crumb and Get It” -- and asked him if the bakery could host an event for Biden on Wednesday.
The owner, Chris McMurray, who just opened the store with his wife in May, could have used the business and attention.
But he declined the offer because he was upset over comments President Barack Obama made in which he told small business owners like McMurray, “you didn’t build that.”
"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,” McMurray told reporters. “At that time she said 'Are you sure? There's going to be a lot of press, a lot of activity,’" "
