FORT PIERCE, Florida — President Barack Obama reputedly loves nothing more than a good old campaign trail hug -- but he may have got more than he bargained for Sunday.
Obama was lifted at least a foot in the air in an intense bear hug by hulking pizza shop owner Scott Van Duzer, during a bus tour of Florida.

Gotta hand it to the guy. I’ve heard bags of manure are REALLY heavy.
This guy is a complete idiot
yeh....SURE he’s a Republican. Right! If he voted for Obama in 08 and wants to vote for him in 12...he is NOT a Republican.
He’s a moron.
Supposedly this guy says he’s a pubbie yet voted for Obozo in 08 and will this time...
I think he’s a member of the “Bear Club” (look at Barney Frank’s wife, etc.) and is as Pubbie as my Aunt Fanny....
Don’t have an Aunt Fanny....
More McCain primary voters who didn't want him in the general election. Keep laughling libtards.
I can't think of a single Republican who would cross over to vote for Obama in 2012, even if one MAY have felt "white guilt" in 2008. Ain't buying this BS. In 2000, there was a crossover Democrat who "registered Republican" and voted for Gore and then funded the Gore "recount".
Smells like donkey sh!t to me.
Yes, he is a complete idiot.
For voting for Obama.
“and I do feel extremely comfortable with him,” Van Duzer said
I’ll bet you do.
Where the heck was the SS?
MEANWHILE a bear comes out of the closet for Obama and the press is in full gusher mode.
If Obama had been facing the other way, would that be the Heimlich Maneuver or legitimate rape?
I wonder if his business will actually improve?
Seriously, will his clinatel remain loyal or will he suddenly see a different sort of customer base?
I’m totally grateful to the Lord that he gave me a proper sense of right and wrong, and supporting Obama is wrong, wrong, wrong.
Obama’s new body man.
Was he a loyal backer of Charlie Crist?
Does Obozo have ANY SHREAD OF DIGNITY?
The Pres-dent of the USA, regardless of my personal opinion of him, should never allow this sort of thing to happen...what is wrong with this pizza guy, he’s NOT a Republican in any way??
I guess the 300% increase in energy costs Obama stupid energy policies have created in the last 4 years isn't enough for this moron. Apparently he is hoping for a 3000% increase in the next 4 years.
Only a truly stupid business owner, or one wholly dependent on Government subsidies, thinks Obama's re-election will be good for anyone.
There is NO WAY this guy is a Republican. I cannot think of ONE Republican who would want to vote for Obama, NOT ONE..this guy has to be a registered Dem, and he looks queer.
Why, why couldn’t it be a REAL bear?
This photo, situation, is wrong on so many levels.
100% disrespect to any leader.
obama allowing himself to be picked up.
Scott Van Duzer thinking that it’s fine to pick up any man, let alone the Pres—ent of USA.
No reaction from the little crowd gathered.
obama’s body looks wooden, like a puppet. Any photos of obama’s face during this moment?
For an encore, I’d like to see scott pick up Putin.
Will the IRS be visiting scott any time soon?
obama meets his cellmate.
I would imagine that afterward hussein needed a smoke break and the next time michelle leaves him alone in the White House, this guy gets an invite and more than a hug.
Caption Obama: “Where’s my teleprompter?” “I can’t say nuthin!”
Heh. The pizza guy is soooo sweaty. Wonder how much hand gel Reggie had to squirt on BO to make him feel clean again.
A registered Republican whose supporting Obama’s re-election.-THERE’S THE REAL PROBLEM!
I’m already catching hell....
Wanna play H-O-R-S-E?
Exactly. This was a complete utter setup, for the uh “small” businessman. Reminds me of when billy boy got into discussion with Herman Cain, and said “just raise your prices”, to which Cain said, “and then lose my customers”.
There is a target meme audience for this BS. Also, possible implied “bear man” appeal to the uh, tootie fruties. They are everywhere.
BTW MEN, real ones, do not talk about other men’s Pectorals- generally speaking. So that’s why the thought. Obamao is such a toot.
“Man are you a powerlifter or what?”
“No, you’re just a shriveled-up little weakling!”
Now that’s funny
Bada bing, bada boom. Right on the money. Toot city. Presser gal says obamao like “hugs” really? From men he doesn’t know and who aren’t a friend. SET UP.
No way this is a “surprise”. Good press follow up should include ask about his being contacted in advance and how it happened. For obamao, there cannot be any embarrassing Roanoke,VA situation (happened to Biden) when the owner of a coffeshop said “hell, no” I don’t want to host him, when the Secret Service CAME BY TO ASK. They went around the block. Next day the place that said no was swamped with grateful customers of a like mind.
I really don’t care what happens to Bozo, but a serious question. Where is the Secret Service when this is going on? This has to have been a planned situation, cleared with them first. Why? I don’t get it!
I didn’t see your post before I posted. You are of course correct.
The Secret Service should have been all over this guy.
Unless the Obama campaign set it all up ahead of time.
It’s idiots like Van Duzer that put BO in office. Likes him because he’s nice to him for 5 minutes in front of the cameras so he will vote for him—total idiot.
Maybe this country has to crash for people to get the message, which is what certainly will happen when Obama gets his second term.
As they say, we get the government we deserve.
Wow, those posters over there sure have their heads up their a$$e$. There is nothing in this picture....eh...PHOTO OP...that isn’t political? Really?
NOTHING, and as Joe Biden would say, LITERALLY, NOTHING Obama does is NOT without a political meaning or agenda behind it.
Man, I loathe how stupid people can be.
Hopefully, once people find out he voted for Bambi last time, and plans on voting for him again, his business will take a nose dive.
Hey! How’d you get ahold of their bedroom photo!
Second time in FL obamao is at a place with Gators connection. In this huggy bear photo (the restaurant is part of a chain, not a franchise so this guy is the manager most likely), there is a #15 Gators Tim Tebow jersey on the wall in light box.
This place is right across the street from a 2 year college with open admissions.
In Orlando, obamao goes over the backside of Universal studios to “Gators Dockside” restaurant where he just happens to find a kid born in Hawaii— and the quip he makes there.
Staged!!?? Looking at the bored attitude of the crowd behind them (and safely behind the table), it looks like it took about 3 tries to get the right photo.
Both FL mini media events were in places with Gator connex. This one in Ft. Pierce is part of a chain— unless a franchise the dude doesn’t own it. But in the bigger photo on the wall is a Tim Tebow #15 Jersey in a wall box mount.
Wonder if this clown realizes how far his “love” is from Tebow, now Tebox is with the Big Apple NY Jets, and a devout Christian, whose mother chose NOT to abort him. If he realizes anything about Tebow.
That is why this is staged— bear man boy hugs and drum circles... oh my.
Now that I know where that guys hands have been.....no way I could ever eat there.
A Blood drive can be set up with a phone call to American Red Cross. They drive a medical bus over and park it. Takes nothing at all to set this up— they are desperate for blood. Unless this guy is a 15 gallon club himself— so what?
