Virginia Baker With Poor Reading Comprehension Skills Refuses Biden Visit


Chris McMurray
Chris McMurray and his wife own a bakery in Radford, VA.  He was approached to have his bakery host  Vice President Joe Biden for a press visit.  
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.
Why in the world would a new business owner say "no" to a photo op with the Vice President of the United States?
McMurray said it was President Obama's recent remarks about small business and who built what.
"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."
Now, to be fair to Mr. McMurray, I don't know if anyone pointed out the fact that he didn't fully understand the President's quote.  President Obama was referencing the "roads and bridges" when he said "you didn't build that".  The news report doesn't say one way or another.  
Once again, here is Obama's full quote in context:
"There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me, because they want to give something back. They know they didn't — look, if  you've been successful, you didn't get there on your own. You didn't get there on your own. I'm always struck by people who think, 'Well, it must be because I was just so smart.' There are a lot of smart people out there. 'It must be because I worked harder than everybody else.' Let me tell you something — there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there.
"If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you've got a business, you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn't get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet."
Why did I post this on the blog when there seems to be no "gay" angle to this story?  Because when I watched the video below, my gaydar went through the roof.  Seriously! Who is she trying to POTRAY?!!
