Small Businesses & The Obama/Biden Campaign

Small businesses across the country are not pleased with the Obama/Biden campaign.  One can hardly blame them. Obama’s “you didn’t build that” statement is not going away.

Also from Iconic Surrealism:

“Crumb and Get It” bakery told Biden to get lost due to Obama’s “you didn’t build that” gaffe. Pay attention to the opinions of the two youths at about the 2:08 mark:

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.”

Ouch. More on this video here.

The grand finale comes from Nice Deb:

Iowa beer tent owner fumes as Obama costs him $25,000 in beer sales

Doh. There’s two sides to every story, and today we get to hear the beer tent owner’s side of Obama’s Iowa beer tent story.

Yesterday, Obama chose to do a photo op in the beer tent at the Iowa State Fair, ( he likes to be seen drinking beer – to appeal to the “Joe Six-pack” crowd.)

He made a point of saying he’d buy everyone a beer, except for the guy holding the Romney sign, (instead of, as Dana Perino suggested on The Five, yesterday, displaying some graciousness by singling him out to buy him a beer.) He eventually bought beers for a lucky ten people in the tent.


Nice Deb has more on the owner’s side of the story, as well as video of Dear Leader doing his best to act like a normal person and failing miserably. Go read the whole thing.
