Skip to comments.Scott Van Duzer, the Obama hugger: Shop facing boycott
Posted on 09/10/2012 3:19:58 PM PDT by F15Eagle
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. Theres no middle line anymore, and thats exactly whats 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 Romneys running mate Rep. Paul Ryan whose sculpted abs are thanks to intense P90X training sessions would lose to the president in a workout battle.

Enjoy the Obama economy, DUde.
Polute-ico must be very sad to hear this.
Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
“Republicans buy shoes, too.”
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.
Hry Scott, remember Chick Fil A?
jeez he helped stage a bamer photo opp..
“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”
Always good to hear the “rest of the story”.
Boo hoo. Will someone please show him the tiny violin?
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.
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.
So what Scott, it’s not as if you built it anyway.
I'm sure you were equally upset when the queers launched their boycott of that bakery out in Colorado...right, Scotty?
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.
Scott - The story broke yesterday, and you’re drawing great big conclusions about your business today? Dude, your regression analysis kung fu is weak. In fact, it smells like a set up.
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.
I would suggest that Scott eat his losses but Michelle 0bama doesn’t approve of the “junk food” he serves.
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.
The metrosexual beat the P90x’er in a workout? Have you seen him throw a baseball? He’s the biggest fem walking.
in less than a couple of days he knows there is a boycott , HUH
I would not go and give him my money but he knows there is a boycott, yet again he craved for attention, and now he craves for more
Good info guys.
Let him count the CHANGE he’ll have after Obama’s HOPE.
No, commenters there just say it proves what knuckle draggers we are.
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.
Maybe hes talking about MO battling Ryan.
He said Barry could whoop Ryans butt
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?
“So what Scott?, its not as if you built it anyway”
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.
“I’m shocked!! Shocked!!” It’s the standard M.O.; hope he has a lot of friends who like pizza.
LOL and he’s crying about a supposed boycott less than two days later ARF.
Attention seeker he is but it makes me laugh at what you said and then he cries about what is wrong with the country and yet he supports the turd poking party who put people into groups\\\Karma, aint it a bitch
“I’m a life-long Republican, but.....”
Exact opposite of what happened to the bakery in Roanoke, VA when the owner said “no” to Biden using the bakery for a photo op.
Hope your business DIES like all the others Obummer visited.
Tough titties. This guy decided to bring in hussein into his business affairs. We don’t have to like it and we are given free speech too. Until obama mandates that we must buy pizza from this guy anyway.
It's probably crappy pizza anyway. Cry me a river...
Obviously he didn’t build that business himself. He had Democrat help.
Who’s he kidding? It was a DADDY BEAR hug and 0bama LOVED it.
LOL - like we would expect any different from “non-partisan Politico” types?
He’s reported to have said he’s a Pubbie...
I still think he’s a member of the “Bears” club...
that is what I was on about in another post.
How embarrassing that we have a girlie boy in charge of this country but even worse now is that my sons have ran a lemonade stand and my youngest is 9, this clown has never even ran that or a hot dog stand.
I’ll say what I said with Chic-Fil-A — I don’t want to have to choose my restaurants based on politics.
Yeah if he’s a Republican than Casey Anthony is a good mother. Oh and he looks like he’s a member of the butt fudge club
He was probably all in favor of that boycott, just not this one.
