“There’s no middle line anymore, and that’s exactly what’s wrong with our country right now.”

He's dead-on right about that.

I'm grateful to Rush since he's the one to really get the ball rolling much faster on this 'no middle ground'.

His show has forced the Left to show their hand, and gave the Right the courage to stand up for theirs.

THANKS RUSH!

Dude, you take a political stand in public and the public will decide.

He politicized himself and his business now he is surprised that some people have strong feelings about his choice.

He is now an Honorary Dixie Chick.

You don't. An any real Conservative thinks the same way.

We also think we personally will not support those who actively work with the enemy. We believe in Freedom for the individual.

So if you want the freedom to be a moron who does business with people who turn around and actively work to destroy political agenda, go right ahead. Just don't expect us to do anything but mock you for your stupidity

I smell a ‘Rat. It was highly suspect that the Secret Service would allow this nut to swing our skinny pres around like that unless this was planned. We never saw pictures like this in any other presidency.

Now the publicity hound owner wants to claim a conservative boycott...one day after his stunt was publicized. He’s barking up the wrong tree if he thinks Libs will stream into his shop. They only come for free stuff.

I lived a block from Modern in New Haven while my wife was in grad school... gained 15 pounds pretty quick. Of course we’d hit Wooster Street when the mood struck.

Pepe’s now has four or five other locations here in CT, so getting a good pie is pretty easy.

“There’s no middle line anymore, and that’s exactly what’s wrong with our country right now.”

I agree wholeheartedly, boycotts suck no matter which side is doing it.

This guy did nothing wrong other than allowing the president into his store and who wouldn't? So he's an Obama supporter, BFD, it means nothing in the grand scheme of things........

There probably wasn’t a boycott, it only happened 2 days ago. It feels like this was planned in advance.

There will definitely be a boycott now.

There is a middle line a**wipe, but your side is so far from it that you couldn’t see it with the Hubble. Meanwhile, you call everyone who disagrees with you a Nazi or a right wing extremist. Your complaints seem a bit disingenuous.

Most people who boycott this or that are hypocrites at best. There are numerous boycotts of Chick-fil-A by morons on the left. It is too bad that the idea of boycotting a store because of politics of its owner seems to have equal hold on many that have posted here. Small business people it seems have no free speech. Does it really matter how much wrong this Pizza shops’ politics are? What should matter is the quality of the food and service.

What I found hilarious was the whole thing about his minions insisting "His pitch didn't bounce in front of the plate!"

Which it didn't, but only because the guy catching it had to really move to make sure...:)

It is the whole thing about being unable to accept criticism, he has to be perfect. Sheesh, what is wrong with saying, "Yeah, the throw was short, so what?"

But he can't do that. Reminds me of Captain Queeg...

Oh, there's a middle line. It's just that all the 'rats and half the Repubs are to the left of it. The line never moved, the government just veered leftward.

Any business that supports Obama, supports Communism and gets what they deserve, IMO. That said, it is a bit early to start griping about being boycotted when there isn’t any real “proof”....so this being a Dem set up, is probably more accurate.

“jeez he helped stage a bamer photo opp”

No kidding!

Anyone who believes the lying media that Obama just happened to drop by is a fool. That guy was checked out by the Secret Service six ways to Sunday including those patrons who were there. The President stops NO WHERE that hasn't been checked out days before. The pizza place also probably had a couple of snipers on top of the building as well as more srrounding the place.

We have had President Bush & Clinton in town a few times during their time in office and after. Secret Service was here two weeks before either of them ever showed up. We knew exactly what route they would take because there were snipers surrounding businesses along the route that was set up days before. The airport had SS in the woods around it. You couldn't get within a hundred yards of either of them unless you had been cleared.

The press and Obama, et al think we are all fools!

The dude deserves to be boycotted for lying about it too! He is no Republican either or he would be ashamed to associate with the idiot Obama.

I agree completely. I have been saying this for years: I don’t WANT to vote for a candidate who is going to “compromise”.

As far as I am concerned, compromise is a one way ratchet for destructive liberalism.

Every single tooth on the cog that we allow to pass under the liberal ratchet is never reciprocated, and is rarely, if ever, gotten back.

Compromising with something bad just means something perhaps a little less bad, but only if you are lucky.
