The owner of a Virginia mom-and-pop bakery refused to host an event for Democratic VP nominee Joe Biden, because he disagrees with the administration's "you didn't build that" policy.
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,’"
McMurray said "very simply, ‘you didn’t build that’” was the reason why he declined the invitation, noting that, "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."

Doesn't Biden remind everyone of Captain Peachfuzz from the old Rocky and Bullwinkle show? Except Peachfuzz was more congenial...
