Pizza and politics may not mix, at least a restaurant owner photographed bear-hugging President Obama.
Scott Van Duzer, the owner of the Florida pizza shop, struck fame for a photograph of him lifting President Barack Obama off the floor with a bear hug at his Big Apple Pizza & Pasta Restaurant in Fort Pierce in Sunday during a last-minute visit from the Commander-in-Chief.
The photograph made the front pages of newspapers around the country and the image was an Internet sensation at warp speed.
The good will was short-lived for Van Duzer though. He told Politico that people are boycotting his business because of the famous presidential hug.
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.

Your Democrat pals started it with Bush, pal.

The idiot is bashing his customers.
You’re the one who met with Obama at the WH before the event. It was obviously a staged event and gave you your 15 minutes of fame. Now you’re seeing exactly what that fame is worth. I hope you understand, you did it to yourself. I don’t give a rat’s a$$ what impact it has on your business.
If you think that Øbama represents the "middle line" you are too stupid to run a pizza parlor.
I guess he knows how the owners of his nearby Chic-Fil-A felt about a month ago.
It's always funny to hear liberals cry when they get boycotted.
Let the willing dupe squirm for being part of the ongoing fraud!
Since Great Leader is so popular and leading in the polling I would imagine the surge in new business will offset any boycott. Unless Great Leader’s supporters are waiting for the government pizza vouchers. Those are slated for the second term so I hope this guy can hold out. Then again, it shouldn’t be a problem since he knows he didn’t build that. The roads and bridges will be along to help him any day now.
That was a creepy man hug.
This guy is too stupid to get too mad at.
There IS no middle line anymore, either you are part of the effort to take down this country or you're against it. There's nothing good about being ambivalent.
You get what you vote for.
Right you are, my FRiend.
So where are all the Obama supporters running in to buy pizza from Mr. middle line pizza man? Hug this.
I don’t think you can buy his pizza with food stamps and welfare checks!
Sorry, but I have to agree with the guy. He hasn’t done anything deserving of a boycott.
I just looked up dipshit and it has a picture of Van Duzer
HA HA HA!
Hey Mr. Duzer, repeat after me: free as-so-see-ay-shun
That, and your pizza probably sucks commie a$$.
