In case you weren’t aware, President Obama will be getting a limited security team after his presidency ends in 2016 (wink wink). A little FYI, the presidents used to get a lifetime security team from us, but since 1997, congressional legislation limited the secret service to 10 years and their children until 16. But it seems that since the President has been on tour, they’ve already gotten a little lax.
The president hit the campaign trail Sunday and made an impromptu stop at Big Apple Pizza and Pasta in Ft. Pierce. The owner, Scott Van Duzer, is a Republican and he admittedly voted for Obama in 2008, and planned to do it again in November, according to Huffington Post. He was so excited to be in the presence of the president that he couldn’t help but lift the president off the ground.
When you see the bear hug the president receives from Van Duzer, you’ll see why I wonder what’s going on with the Secret Service. Check it out!
