Yesterday, President Obama received an awesome bear hug from a Republican pizza shop owner during a stop on a bus tour in Florida — the guy lifted Obama at least a foot off the ground, but didn’t shake him all around.
The president’s spokes-lady remarked: â€œThe only thing the president likes more than a bus tour is a hug,â€ she said.

Obama likes what came with the hug: â€œI donâ€™t vote party line, I vote who I feel comfortable with, and I do feel extremely comfortable with him,â€ Van Duzer said, adding he had been â€œjust overcome with excitement,â€ and hoisted the president aloft.
The incident does reveal that not all GOPers are bat-shit crazy — reportedly the pizza guy voted for Obama in 2008 and will again in a few weeks.
Meanwhile, Mitt Romney on his own debris-littered campaign trail opened his yap and blubbered such nonsense one has to wonder where his brain is connected — maybe directly to the Cayman Islands.
In Virginia, Mitt spewed forth such a nefarious pile of religious bullshit beyond the wake: â€œThe pledge says ‘under God,'” Romney told onlookers. “I will not take God out of the name of our platform. I will not take God off our coins and I will not take God out of my heart. Weâ€™re a nation thatâ€™s bestowed by God.â€
And he will not take any advice and just go home (or homes).
Obama press secretary Jay Carney responded: “The president believes as much that god should be taken off a coin as he does that aliens will attack Florida,” Carney said. “Itâ€™s an absurd question to be raised.â€
As this whacked presidential race moved on to the short hairs, all kinds of weird and crazed shit will slobber forth from Mitt’s frothy lips, along side his twisted sister, Paul Ryan.
If events keep pushing in the general direction its going, Republicans will not only get slaughtered in November, but will end up as they are — crazed liars.
From Media Matters and the state of delusional incoherence of the GOP:
Packed with strange public pronouncements about “slave blood,” imprisoning the president, vaginas, aborting people, as well as rancid race-baiting, the right-wing Week in Review captured the unhinged element that powers the conservative movement on the eve of the final election push.
And oh yeah, Fox’s Dick Morris said Bill Clinton actually wants Obama defeated but won’t say so because his “wife is a hostage” and “they’ll kill her” if Obama loses.
The reason the meltdown matters is because of the conservative media’s outsized influence within the GOP.
Since Obama’s inauguration, the conservative movement has become, first and foremost, a media-based one.
The Republican Party and its presidential campaign now take commands from the far-right press.
And don’t forget, in May, Romney met for two hours with conspiracy-minded GOP bloggers to map out how the group could help his campaign.
All one has to do is watch those f*cking TV talk shows on Sunday morning — what a waste of useless talent, what a shame mainstream journalism has become nothing more than a GOP fog horn.
And, of course, Obama wasn’t the only one on the Democratic front-line ticket to get warm and fuzzy with folks.

Jolting Joe Biden had some up close and personal with some bikers in Ohio yesterday — Joe just can’t let it be.
Those two guys on either side, however, don’t look all that democratic.
Another, so it goes.
