Bear Hug Boycott

I don’t watch TV, so I didn’t know about this, but apparently there’s some pizza shop owner who bear hugged the President. Why it’s important, I have no idea, but apparently, people are boycotting his shop.

Why, I don’t know. Is it because he’s an Obama supporter? Is it because he enveloped the President in a bear hug?

“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.”

Judging by the comments after the Politico story, people are appalled that Republicans would boycott a business supportive of Obama and his policies. Here’s a sampling:

This is exactly what Clinton spoke about. The Tea Party ‘hates Obama’, they are obsessed. People are beginning to see the GOP for what it really is, a party with confusing to no plans (now Romney wants to replace Obamacare with Obamacare) but full with irrational hate. Clinton’s devastating logic was this ‘America was losing 750,000 jobs a month, are we better off today?’. Really liked that line and it is beginning to resonate.

This is what republicans have done for the last four years…they have physically kicked out any republican who hugged, shook hands with and spoke nicely of the President. Regardless of your politics, he is a small business owner, the ones “they” say they want to help.

Wow, people are boycotting this guy because he hugged President Obama? That is a pretty sad reflection of the right-wing in this country today.

I could see why Republicans would be boycotting his pizza shop, because they are idiots and somebody told them to do it. I think that if you are a Democrat in Florida, you should pay a visit there, so that Bain Capital doesn’t get anywhere close to that Business.

Wow. How stupid. People boycotting this guy’s pizza joint because of his political views. Terrible.

I wonder how many of the more than 1000 supporters of this pizza shop spoke up about the mass boycotts of Chick-Fil-A based on nothing more than the views of the CEO…
