    In your face Obama–I love it.

    • BS61

      Yeah! It’s been a long 3 1/2 years without anyone challenging him in the media!

  • Sober_Thinking

    He was on Greta last night, which is good. He stated one of the reasons why he didn’t let Biden use his venue/business was due to religious differences. Greta was a little annoying and pressed him hard on that point. That’s bad.

    All he had to say was that Obamacare forces religious institutions to embrace and provide services (company-provided contraception) that are contrary to their beliefs.

    I’m glad Chris is prospering and getting exposure. Good!

      A Joe the Plumber moment.

      A Crumb and Get It moment.

      I saw that last night. It annoyed me, too. She kept pushing the point, when he was trying to be polite and just say he felt there were differences in their religious viewpoints. What really annoyed me was after she finally said she’d stop beating the dead horse, she came right back with the horsewhip for a couple more tries. I think she was trying to stir up some controversy.

      Most of the time when I listen to Greta, she drives me up the wall with all her ‘I means’, run-on sentences, and continual repetition within each sentence.

      • Her voice grates too. I don’t have much time for her at all.

      • Amy

        You guys still watch Fox!?!? ;-D

        Hat’s off to you – I just can’t stand it anymore. I occassionally try to watch Cavuto on Fox Business but more and more I just tune it all out when I get home at night. I don’t know if that’s good or bad… LOL

        • Nukeman60

          I watched Fox, CNN, and MSNBC back in ’08 to get both sides of the argument. Now I just dab at Fox and ignore CNN and MSNBC. Scoop gives us all we need to see from these far left liberal sources with a minimum of pain. Since Beck left Fox, I have been tapering off from them as well.

          TheRightScoop, Breitbart com, American Thinker, PJMedia, among others, gives us the full range of info. Add to that Levin, Limbaugh, and Malkin, and you get the political picture of what both sides have to say.

          Fox is merely background on the TV, which I can mute or not, depending on the shrillness.

          • Amy

            It is almost a full time job to keep up on the shenanigans going on in this world!!

            • keyesforpres

              Heck, it’s a full time job keeping up with how the Bowing Usurper is shredding our Constitution on a dialy basis.

          • Exactly the same here.

      • Boris_Badenoff

        Greta was the last Foxite I would watch. I appreciated that she would at least let the person being interviewed speak for more than 10 seconds without interrupting them . I made it a point if she was having someone interesting on to tune in.

        But that was then and I no longer watch TV News or commentary in any form.. Been off the News tube for over 2 years now.. They are all full of crap..imo

      • Sober_Thinking

        Agreed. That was a low moment for her… wonder if her ratings are suffering?

    • Dukehoopsfan

      Greta is a little annoying and sometimes does not know when to shut up. She is not a bright as she she thinks.

  • Wow. Simply, wow. He gave Obama and Biden an earful. Gives me hope that the tide is turning and that we’re going to win. When you have the people on your side, you have to win. And I think Obama and Biden are about to find out just how angry the people are.

  • las1


    Now that’s America!

  • anneinarkansas

    He was wonderful on Greta last night and she returned the favor by being rude to him!

    • sDee

      The elites are most worried about us, the people, figuring the game out. If they have to don an elephant suit to pacify us, they will, but guys like this are what they fear most.

  • PicklePlants

    I wonder if he ships his product to all 57 states yet.

    • las1

      Heck, I think I’ll order a cyber-muffin. The large ones are a few cents more expensive, but definitely worth it.

      Oh and PicklePlants… a small p.s. that’s 60 states. Count em…

      57 states… one left to go… and Alaska and Hawaii he wasn’t allowed to go to because his staff said so (more like Alaska and Hawaii didn’t want him there).

    • Boris_Badenoff

      You know I saw that vid yesterday and he actually said he had been to he thought 57 states and had one more to go. That makes 58 … just for clarity’s sake..

      Thats the link and I just listened to it again and it’s even worse than I thought.
      He claimed he had been in 57 states with one (1) more to go and that his staff would not even let him go to Hawaii OR Alaska..

      ?? I think we are talkin 60 States here.. listen for yourself and see what you think..

      Smartest guy in the room … NOT..

      • NYGino

        Definitely 60 States. Actually 61. 60 States plus the state of confusion.

        • las1

          Man Gino… that was great! Awesome!

          You da best.

  • Army_Pilot1967

    A pretty good intro for a non-politician and the crowd was fired-up!!!! I hope Ryan fired ’em up even more!!!!

    Go Romney/Ryan.

    • Orangeone

      Scoop, any chance of posting the full rally when it becomes available? We all get fired up watching R Squared around the country!

  • RH

    Awesome !!!

  • Joe

    The “Take Away” is that the “Quiet” Revolution is building up steam

    I think the socialist coffin is closing

    I found this FYI – “RED” books are selling more than “BLUE” books

    It is starting to look similar to election polls – Curious – Isn’t it?

    TIME left >>>>>

    • Hmm… Have to go out and buy some more books… Only 40% of books in MA are red. 🙁 Still, I’ll donate to the RNC/Romney and Scott Brown (to defeat Big Chief Spreading Bull) and my local Republican guy, Marc Lombardo.

    • Patriot077

      Interesting to see how well the movie 2016 is doing too. Even in very liberal cities. It is finally coming to my area on Friday and I can’t wait to see it – even though I don’t expect to learn much I don’t already know, I want to see it before I start talking it up to all the dimocrats I know. Good people that don’t pay any attention to what is really happening.

  • To all the job creators big and small, and Chris McMurry’s here in America…” A wise and Frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuit of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned – this is the sum of good government.” Thomas Jefferson

    • badbadlibs

      That quote most infuriate the little dictator wannabe and his fellow democrats.
      Thanks for posting those words.
      The left has no idea what principles this country was founded upon.

  • Booyah!!!!!

  • layne22

    Four words….
    Four words got Rush more attention than even thought he would get: “I hope he fails.”

    And now, four words are going to be deemed a great cause of President Obama’s loss (I hope) this election: “You didn’t build that.”

    Four little words sure can rile people up! So glad to see Romney/Ryan taking advantage of the President’s words.

    • NYGino

      Here’s four little words for the impostor….”Go back to Chicago”

      • DebbyX

        Can we just add “quickly” or “soon”? 🙂

  • brendawatkins

    Yes we did!

  • Amy

    I’m eagerly awaiting for Crumb & Get It’s shipping services because I’ve promised them I would buy a bunch of cookies once it’s up and running. The owner has brass ones to put himself out there publicly knowing what our culture is like right now. The least I can do is purchase my sugar fix from them. 🙂

    • StandProudNow

      Can’t wait to order some Freedom Cookies!

    • Orangeone

      Amy, is Crumb and Get It going to start shipping? Oh, I hope so because I’ll be a purchaser.

      • Amy

        It sounds like they will be trying to get something in place for shipping. It’s got to be a little overwhelming from their stand point. One morning you are a local mom & pop bakery with set hours & a facebook page and within days you have requests for goods from people all over the country. LOL Talk about expanding your scope of business!

        • Orangeone

          Excellent!  And they built that to in response to requests from their consumers 🙂  I cannot wait to order some of these yummy cookies.

        • jlbs

          A great example of the free market!

  • Betsey_Ross

    I was so heartened to see Chris McMurray on Greta last night and now introducing Paul Ryan. Our little Chris is moving up in the world because he stood up to the machine and he works hard. This kind of stuff makes me smile.

    I got a post on my facebook the other day that Crumb and Get It is making plans to be able to send out their goodies. Right now they can’t do that. Apparently he was answering all of the people that that “liked” his facebook. So…..I am sure his business plan either changed dramatically last week or he has made a course correction because he is beginning to expand a lot faster than he thought. God works in mysterious ways. Go Chris!

  • poljunkie


    Go get ’em guys.

  • odin147

    Country has to decide once and for all, are we going to defend capitalism or not ? because we cannot have big govt and capitalism at the same time, they cannot coexist because when govt becomes big, capitalism changes to cronyism. We have been living under cronyism for decades now. It is time to reset, and always remember the only good liberal is a defeated one.

    • I can not like you post more then once, so here is 500 more likes!

  • Orangeone

    I’m thinking someone from R Squared either politely reached out to Chris or Chris reached out to them!

  • Very smart of the campaign to get him!!!!!!

  • Oh this is so cool and just well timed!! Great job Paul and Mitt this is just dynamite!! This man deserved to be recognized for telling Joe to GO well you know where!! And to see him acknowledged and the rousing support made me proud!! A great guy and his wife busting their backs to be a success and ridiculed by the Marxist!! When you see Mitt and Paul stand with small business owners with principle that SWAYS people and gives you a reason to want to vote for them!! I love it!! Positive and engaging….Thank you Chris and Thank you Paul for a great event!

    • Totally agree! My husband started his own small business last month, without a bank loan and with out any government help. This month he has tripled what he did last month. He can’t wait to grow more and be able to hire a staff. That’s what helps the economy. And btw, his tax rate is 25%.

  • Rightstuff1

    What a great guy. Wow!! This was from the heart, this was this guy’s truth, this was his pure belief and we all know that when Obama said – “you didn’t build that” he was also speaking from the heart. Obama is the enemy of capitalism and the freedom and prosperity it brings….

  • nibblesyble

    True Patriot!

  • Cue intolerant leftwing libtards and their stalking, death threats and ACORN tactics in 3, 2, ……

    Folks, be prepared to defend and SUPPORT this young business owner and his wife. They are about to get “Joe the Plumberized.”

    I STAND WITH CHRIS MCMURRY and ALL other small business owners EVERYWHERE!

  • LadyPenguin

    This is absolutely delightful!

  • conservativemama

    A great Virginian. A great American.

  • Yazz55

    Thats a hard act to follow

  • p m

    Love it. Just love it!

  • gunsmithkat

    It sure was a WONderful thing that the Won gave us with that speech in Roanoke. We should use it like a club to beat the Democrap party to death. It looks like that is the Romney-Ryan plan.

    • He stole it from Elizabeth Warren. She is another Harvard fraud.

  • This gentlemen needs to run for Congress, what an introduction!

  • DebbyX

    Unlike the Democraptic party, we have unlikely heroes all over this great Country. There’s one right there!

  • tinker_thinker

    Whoa! That was a great introduction! Mr McMurry was excited and happy to be there, a heartfelt speech.

  • They need to do this more!!

  • chatterbox365

    Loved it! What I enjoyed the most about watching this video is to see the excitement in Chris’ speech. You can tell the guy spoke from the heart. I’m so glad the campaign stopped by and made him part of their rally.

    We have Chris McMurry…a hardworking small business owner. And the democrats have Sandra Fluke…a 30 year old activist and still in college to get laid. And she is going to be speaking at the DNC convention. I wonder if she will be hiding in the podium when Bill Clinton is speaking…no contraceptives needed…LOL!

    Obama 57?? The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC; Arabic: منظمة التعاون الاسلامي‎; French: Organisation de la Coopération Islamique (OCI))[a 1] is an international organisation consisting of 57 member states Very Interesting!!
