Scott Van Duzer, the Obama hugger: Shop facing boycott
Politico ^ | 9/10/2012 | By KEVIN CIRILLI | 9/10/12 3:36 PM EDT Read more: http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0912/80998.h

The owner of a Florida pizza shop says people are boycotting his business because he bear-hugged President Barack Obama on Sunday.

“People are saying a lot of bad things and boycotting my restaurant,” Scott Van Duzer, 46, told POLITICO. “There’s no middle line anymore, and that’s exactly what’s wrong with our country right now.”

The owner of Big Apple Pizza & Pasta Restaurant in Fort Pierce, Fla., said that both Democrats and Republicans are welcome in his store. But he also said he thinks Mitt Romney’s running mate Rep. Paul Ryan — whose sculpted abs are thanks to intense P90X training sessions — would lose to the president in a workout battle.

Too late, clown. You made your choice by bear-hugging your best buddy.

Enjoy the Obama economy, DUde.

Polute-ico must be very sad to hear this.

This guy is a Dem hack. He visited the White House in July so everything with Obama and his goons are pre planned in advance

A workout battle between a smoker and a nonsmoker?

Maybe he’s talking about MO battling Ryan.

Your business deserves to crash and burn, Scott. Don’t worry you’ll have company. Plenty who don’t deserve it will follow and plenty are already toast.

would lose to the President, er the jug ears is a fairy, puny , scrawny boy.

As for a boycott, well how about all the boycotts the homostapo does, how about all what the left does, they even went and tried to boycott FOX and their sponsors and still do.

You know what the guy wanted to make a big deal out of the visit and he got what he wanted, except it is negative attention

I sure don’t want to eat in any shop run by a stupid, ignorant, imbecilic obama lover.

I hope he loses his business and ends up in pizza delivery.

I'm sure you were equally upset when the queers launched their boycott of that bakery out in Colorado...right, Scotty?

Chick Fil A involved elected officials threatening to close down a business through government means.

This guy is crying about an imaginary boycott, of which there is no proof and is probably being manufactured by the Dems to make people forget the mayoral blackmailing of Chick Fil A.

I wouldnt’ go either.
I’m guessing he is a transpalnt to here and he brought his ignorant views with him and now he cries about the boycott.
The man is a Dem hack, been to the white house and and was used for a photo ip and now bozo has gone he;s left to face the music and the music is not pennies for sure.

GOd I would not go either to his pizza place, let him go back to where he came from and get out of our state

He won’t lose his food stamp business. He could always put a solar panel on the roof of his business and ask obama for a 500 million dollar loan.

Uh....what would possess someone to bearhug a president like that? Seems a bit.....gay....to me.

If he has a loyal group of patrons, he should be fine. But in this economy, I’d be careful about alienating anyone. It’s not like there aren’t a bunch of other pizza places from which to choose.

Is there really an orchestrated boycott happening or is it that several people have just made the decision to not patronize his pizza shop?

IMHO people have just made that decision on their own without an organized campaign of vitriol. The left love boycotts so he sees it as an organized attempt to put him out of business. All the folks on the right see is an idiot who they would rather not do business with.

LOL Yea I saw him throw that baseball, along wiht him trying to hide behind his misses, which I might add there is a lot to hide behind there.
He did that when watching Judo.

Then him on his bicycle with his helmet looking all girlie.

The man is such a pansy which is typical of most lefty men today

If he's being boycotted, he deserves it. Almost every business I patronize is run by a conservative, or it's corporate and does not take sides. There is no middle line between good and evil. What Obama, Pelosi, and Reid want to do to our country is evil, and I have no interest in compromise. The ObamaCare mandate for birth control and abortion is not merely bad economics and bad public policy like so much of ObamaCare, it is a fundamental violate of basic human rights. Where would the "middle line" be? Let's only violate the rights of certain Americans who object to being forced to pay for murdering innocent unborn children?

The stories yesterday said that the guy is a Republican. And some lady who introduced him in Melbourne, FL, yesterday “is a registered Republican.” It seems to be a theme.

Sooo, no chance it is just a bad economy and folks cannot afford to go out and eat, or that his food is really sub par for the area, could be a bad virus going around etc. I’d say he’s lucky to be in business, small as it is, given these hard times. We all know that this was pre-arranged, practiced and staged as there is not one SS guy anywhere in the picture.
Go ahead make my day, I’d rather eat at Chick Fil A.
