Seems quite a bit of the public have had enough of Obama’s lies.

Well, he did bear hug a homosexual, illegal alien with a stolen Social Security number and a Selective Service number of a dead man . . . so . . . that should count for something.

Everybody in that area should stop in at this guy’s business and tell them that they are heading over to Chick-fil-a, and just wanted to say hi . . . too bad about his poor business choice.

I think conservatives should put out that the *left* are boycotting his pizza, “because he touched ‘the one’ and made him look foolish!”

As lockstep as the left is, they might stupidly join the boycott just because they think that is what other leftists are doing.

They can be just like chickens, pecking one of their number to death because there is something slightly different about them, or just because.

Yes, because of that and the fact they’ve tracked him to visiting the WH, this thing was staged and the SS probably told to stand aside.

This was, no doubt, to give a “news item” for the lapdog CBS / CNN / ABC / NBC to run for free campaign advertising for ‘Bammy.

All staged. Just like everything about Bammy.

It’s all as real as his fake, hacked-together “birth certificate”. All a show with smoke and mirrors.

Then sit silently and do not complain when liberal businesses give your money to dem/lib campaigns and causes.

Conservatives fund their own demise through hiring/working for and patronizing liberals. Either give money to conservative businesses/products/services or do without.

The black Democrat congressman who INTRODUCED Obama at the 2008 convention jumped ship and the media didn’t even bother to carry it on all of the networks GOP convention coverage.

But this pizza tosser gets a week’s worth of ink.

Boo frickin’ hoo over your man crush boycott.

This "resistered republican" crap is getting OLD. Nobody is falling for the "republicans have moved to the far right" crap anymore. Far right? 20 years ago how many democrats were in favor of gay marriage? How many supported partial birth abortion or the born alive act?

It's the democrats who have moved into off the charts insanity leftism.

My challenge is: name a single issue where the democratic party has moved rightward.

Plenty of leftist moves by republicans. But no "right wing" from the dems.

Off the subject, but picking up the President like that is very disrespectful. I don't care that it's Obama. The pizza shop owner is a major league a$$hole. On every level.

Why would the Secret Service allow someone to get that close the POTUS. Oh, that’s right, he’s a fraud.

You know, and I know, and everybody knows that there's no way in hell that the bodyguards would let anybody grab the "president" (even though Nobama is not our president), so this was a "casual photo op" setup, phony as hell, to show that the idiot living in our White House is just "one of the juys."

Golly . . . don't that just make you feel all warm and fuzzy . . . Pencilneck, sissyboy, is just one a' da' guys! Reminds me of Clintoon's finding stones on Omaha beach in order to make a cross, or finding a flag tipped over in front of a patriot's tombstone, or smile/crying at Ron Brown's funeral.

Smart business people are subtle in their political activities. Even those who are quite active will rarely do something overtly political in their place of business. People are free to trade with whomever. If someone makes me angry I will buy from a business man or woman that has not made me angry.

I could buy a pizza from a Democrat donor as long as I don’t have to swallow his politics.

But to have a “Registered Republican” (what does that mean when you admit to voting for Obama in the general election in 2008 and plan to again in 2012) going nationwide in his bromance with Obama and then whining when some people throw up a little, well, it’s a bit hard to swallow. He’s pushing a talking point I ain’t buying (”card carrying Republican”).

Anyone who votes for Obama is no friend of mine, nor will I ever knowingly support an obama supporter’s business.

Had a facebook acquaintance who posted this encounter as it happened.. she’s good friends with this guy. I defriended this person immediately.

No room in my life for traitors of America and their supporters.

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.”

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.

Should we care what you think??

It seems to be a theme.

Exactly. It is a planned strategy according to one of the press members who attended the Melbourne speech. Of course anyone can register to be a Republican and probably did so to vote for the weakest candidate in this year's primary.

What a joke. This idiot isn't "middle line", he's so left-wing that he flies in circles. Guess he thought, as all idiot leftist do, that EVERYONE worships obama just like him.

No need for him to worry.

He didn't build that pizza shop anyway.

Once he is no longer any use to the democrats I'm sure Obama or Debbie Washerwoman-Shultz can get him on food stamps with no problem.

one of the comments...

No Middle line? Who does this guy think he's fooling? He's not "middle", he visited the WH back in July. He's an Obama hack, lefty plain as day.

This stunt was so obviously staged. Had this been spontaneous, the secret service would have been down on this guy like a lion on zebra.

Remember - every seemingly “candid, random person” met by Obama is staged. Always. In a couple days it’ll come out that not only has he met Obama at the WH, he’s some other kind of dem operative.

Why else would he be allowed to bear hug the President? If it wasn’t staged the Secret Service woulda been all over him!
