Isn’t this delicious. Murty catered for Obama’s Wednesday visit to Iowa and wore the T-shirt you see in the photo below. Now I hope he gets paid, cause you know…the word is out – sometimes the Obama’s walk out on the bill.
DAVENPORT, Iowa — Ross Murty likes business, but he doesn’t like President Obama.
And so the co-owner of the Village Corner Deli here agreed to cater Obama’s visit Wednesday — but not before donning a T-shirt blaring the message: “Government didn’t build my business. I did.”
“No one from the government was there when we were sweating it, when we were building this business,” Murty said. Before him was a bank of chafing dishes filled with smoked beef brisket, pulled pork, vegetable parmesan bake and cheesy hash brown casserole provided to the White House press corps covering the president’s three-day swing across Iowa this week.
But here’s the rest of the story:
Murty, 45, a registered Republican, didn’t really have a choice with the catering job. His partner, Bret Dalton (a registered Democrat), accepted the work on Saturday while Murty was away in Chicago watching a Cubs game.
Read the rest of the story about this partnership, Murty and Dalton. After all, “business is business.” In a related story, Chris McMurray at Virginia’s Crumb and Get It Cookie Shop refused a Biden visit, cuz “You Didn’t Build That.”
