Obama gets a bear hug from Fla. pizza shop owner

President Obama gets his share of effusive supporters. But in what is likely a first for the 44th president, he got a bear hug," according to USA Today.

"En route to a rally in West Palm Beach on Sunday, Obama stopped by the Big Apple Pizza & Pasta Restaurant in Fort Pierce and met with the owner Scott Van Duzer.

"Scott, what's going on, man?" Obama shouted to Van Duzer as he came through the door, according to pool reporter Reid Epstein. "Scott, let me tell you, you are like the biggest pizza shop owner I've ever seen."

The president then approached Van Duzer, 46, of Port St. Lucie, who stands 6-foot-3 and weighs 260 pounds."
