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.
