We wouldn't begrudge the excitement of anyone who rushes into a bear hug with someone they care about. We're fairly certain even Mitt Romney's grandkids have done that to him.
But having someone NOT related to the recipient of the hug - let alone a Republican - be so happy that he would give President Barack Obama a bear hug?
That's exactly what Scott Van Duzer, registered Republican and small business owner of Big Apple Pizza & Pasta in Ft. Pierce, Florida did over the weekend. Not only is Duzer a registered Republican, who voted for Obama in 2008 - he says he's going to do the same thing this year, in 2012.
