What a funny photo. Somebody REALLY likes President Barack Obama…and he’s a Republican too.
Man’s name is Scott Van Duzer, a 46-year-old, six-foot-three Republican, and he’s seen giving Obama a gigantic bear hug, even raising the prez off the ground. According to sources, Obama marveled at the man’s strength and enthusiasm.
Van Duzer owns the Big Apple Pizza and Pasta Italian Restaurant where Obama stopped on Sunday (Sept 9) during a Florida bus swing. Duzer also runs a foundation that helps collect blood for the ill; he has received White House commendations for his work.
As he entered, Obama admired Van Duzer’s biceps, saying “Look at these guns!”
Said Obama: “The guy’s just got a big heart, along with big pecs.”
Of his embrace, Van Duzer said: “I was overwhelmed when I saw him.”
Ah, I not sure I like seeing our president in this position, though…you can put him down now Mr. Duzer.
But hey, who says Democrats and Republicans can’t get along? Proof’s in this bear hugging photo, lol.
Duzer voted for Obama in the last presidential election and plans to do so again in November as well.
