Florida pizza shop owner Scott Van Duzer lifts Obama off the ground
10 September 2012 The owner of a pizza shop in Florida surprised president Obama when he lifted him off the ground after giving him a huge hug. Mr Obama told Scott Van Duzer, a tall muscular man, that he was the biggest pizza shop owner he had ever seen. The president said he visited Mr Duzer during his campaign tour to the region because he had been encouraging blood donors in his community. The pizza shop owner voted for Mr Obama four years ago and said he intended to do the same this year, despite being a registered Republican.
