Scott Van Duzer is a great guy. He runs the Van Duzer Foundation and spends time and money helping people in his community.

What the media forgot to mention is that Scott Van Duzer reportedly visited the White House in June.
So the visit today to Scott’s business was not so random.
The TCPalm reported:

Local philanthropist Scott Van Duzer and his team of St. Lucie County Boys and Girls Club members braved temperatures in the upper 80s Tuesday, pedaling through Port St. Lucie and Fort Pierce during the second day of their monthlong, 1,000-mile Washington D.C. bicycle trip to raise blood donation awareness.

The team launched its Be a Hero Bicycle Tour on Monday from Florida’s Blood Centers’ Lake Park office in Palm Beach. The caravan, which includes several adult riders, four youth club members and a 38-foot camper, made a stop at a Martin County Boys and Girls Club before holding two blood drives at the Port St. Lucie Civic Center and Big Apple Pizza in Fort Pierce. The four youth riders informed more than 100 fellow club members of the importance of becoming lifelong donors once they are eligible.

“They were excited to see us and had a lot of questions for us,”said Fort Pierce Infinity Teen Center member Joseph Noble, 17. Noble said his mother needed a blood transfusion after the traumatic delivery of his older sister, three years before his birth. The teen plans to share his story with other children during scheduled stops along the way.

Van Duzer said his team is confirmed to meet with the U.S. Surgeon General on July 11 in Washington D.C. He added the deputy surgeon general will ride the last 50 miles with the team.

“Someone needs blood every two seconds. Forty-four thousand people have to donate every day to meet the need,” Van Duzer said.

The four youth riders hope word of the trip spreads to the White House.

“President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, we’re coming to see you,” said Ken Pruitt Unit member Cody Hatt, 14. “First Lady Michelle is big on health and if she sees we’re trying to promote awareness in our generation, she might get involved.”

Team members have more than 30 scheduled stops at Boys and Girls Clubs and blood banks. A blood drive will be held at each venue. Van Duzer said members will stay overnight at several club locations. During the next ten days the caravan is scheduled to make appearances in Brevard, Orange, Volusia, Flagler, St. Johns and Duval Counties.

Yup. Either the Secret Service guys were sound asleep on this or it was carefully planned and scheduled in advance.

    Be afraid! Everytime Obama features a business, they end up going under.

  • Gloria

    Everything about Democrats is so phony.

    Though the lying does come from the heart. Lying is a part of who they are.

    body guards, ya know what i mean, what a farce of a
    farce.. how dumbedd down are we.. *sigh*

    Had to have been staged. If anybody not preauthorized tried to do that, the Secret Service would have them in handcuffs so fast it would make your head spin.

  • Patty

    He looks like a wittle kid. (obambi)

    Oh wow. What “a man of the people” and all. I’m SO amazed. Not.


    Right on the Secret Service detail. This was totally staged. Blech.

    Hope the riders get a lot of support though. It’s a good cause. Of course….more people might give blood or money if the economy was doing better. If Obamascare gets started, there probably won’t be enough blood, so hope they’re able to get the stores up while it’s still possible.

    As I remarked on another thread, this made me feel sick to my stomach. Comrade Barry’s undignified, outlandish and childish behavior is unbecoming of a POTUS. It’s like the shoes on the Oval Office furniture and the sneaky flipping of the bird. It diminishes the office. We can’t fire him fast enough. As for his myriad high crimes and misdemeanors and acts of treason, he deserves a fate of life in prison.

    In the video at the pizza place Obama tries to be so cool but watch his gestures closely. Obama’s very happy….of course, nothing wrong with that.

  • donh

    #12…There is a clear ” I LOVE OBAMA ” community organized message now being put forth in the media . Images of hugs, adoring fans , testimonials…and because people LOVE Obama personally …we are supposed pass on the verdict his record is due ….and forgive it all …

    SICKENING…. yes that the American people can be so played by the D team of hollywood set directors who stage craft these fake images. If only the same amount of attention were paid to running the country. ….and just where is Romney ? where are HIS staged public relation photo images licking ice cream cones, hugging an old lady, and kissing babies ?

    How many times do you think they practiced that “candid” shot?

  • Granny Jan and Jihad Kitty

    @ # 14 Exactly!
    The weird thing is that they think all these odd photos resonate with the public.
    Apparently, they resonate with a certain cohort of women. They have to be a real turn off to most men.

    I really think the Republicans not attempting to take down his likabilty ratings a notch is a big mistake. They could have used the White House photos of him putting his feet on the Oval Office desk and furniture 15 times. I’ve been doing this for three years but they have been awol.

  • bigkahuna

    Thats pizza shop is going to see a drop in business.

    A registered republican voting for Obama ??????? Yeah right.

    Good luck as people start voting with their dollars / feet
