Obama hoisted off the ground in a big bear hug by a Florida pizza shop owner

Comments are off for this post.

Yesterday, Scott Van Duzer, owner of Big Apple Pizza in Florida, was so excited to meet the president he couldn’t resist giving him a big, old bear hug. For a brief moment, surprised members of Obama’s staff — including, no doubt, some chagrined Secret Service agents — and Obama himself were powerless before a very happy, 6’3″, 260-pound small business owner.

(And if you’re curious about the guy’s sweaty attire, the explanation is that he only received notice that the president was coming to his restaurant 40 minutes before the fact and rushed there straight from the golf course.)

    What the media forgot to mention is that Scott Van Duzer reportedly visited the White House in July. So the visit to Scott’s business was not so random. Reported by the TCPalm

    Wait, I’m confused – who rushed straight from the golf course, the restaurant owner, or Obama?

    I don’t see a single pizza on any of those tables in the pizza restaurant….that’s how bad our economy is.
