Secret Service Fail of the Day

Secret Service Fail of the Day

President Barack Obama's bus tour through Florida made a pizza stop in Ft. Pierce on Sunday. Upon meeting restaurant owner Scott Van Duzer, Obama exclaimed: "Scott, let me tell you, you are like the biggest pizza shop owner I've ever seen."

What happened next probably isn't on the Secret Service protocol sheet. Duzer wrapped Obama in a bear hug and lifted him into the air, much to the delight of onlookers -- and likely the chagrin of his security detail.

Duzer is a registered Republican who voted for Obama in 2008, and plans to do so again in November.

President Barack Obama visited Gator's Dockside, an Orlando sports bar, Saturday night as part of a bus tour of Florida. One young boy in the crowded restaurant, Andre Wupperman, hails from Hawaii, which led Obama to flash him a shaka hand sign -- the Hawaiian "hello".

Wupperman responded in kind, to which Obama playfully replied: "You were born in Hawaii? You have a birth certificate?"

We'll just assume Obama didn't make young Andre produce documentation.

White House Beer of the Day

The United States' most top secret beer just gained declassified status. The White House has released the recipes for its home-brewed -- and government approved -- Honey Ale and Honey Porter, for those who really want to drink like the president.

While people probably wouldn't mind a few tax dollars being spent on the Commander in Chief's home concoctions, Barack Obama funds this venture out of his own pocket.
