The first story concerns a Davenport, Iowa businessman named Ross Murty. It seems his business partner was approached by the Obama campaign to cater an event while he was away. Not wanting to turn down the business, Murty (a registered Republican) served up beef brisket and pulled pork while wearing a Romney campaign T-shirt that said "Government didn't build my business, I did."

The second story is about "Crumb and Get It" owner Chris McMurray who, when asked if Vice-President Joe Biden could visit his bakery for a media event, said no. When asked to explain his decision, he said...
“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.”
McMurray said he’s hoping folks will understand he just didn’t want to be part of a photo op for an administration whose policies he doesn’t agree with.
Culinary resistance is the front line of the battle against progressivism. Praise the Lord and pass me one of those cupcakes.
