Ross Murty, a Davenport Iowa caterer, was hired by the White House Travel Office to feed the press corps (yes, corps…Mr. President. Not ‘corpse’) traveling with the Obama campaign. Murty, a Republican, clearly didn’t appreciate the anti-business comments made by Obama when he stated at a July 13 campaign stop in Virginia, “If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”
As he stood and served food to the press, Murty proudly posed for pictures in a navy blue shirt with bold, white letters displaying the words “Government Didn’t Build My Business, I Did.” The shirt featured a Mitt Romney logo below the phrsase.
Thin-skinned Obama has never been one to take criticism well. If I was Mr. Murty, I’d make sure all of my financial documentation is in order. I’d be surprised if the IRS doesn’t show up soon.
