I didn't know hugs could be political. "Come here you sexy beast, give me a left winged hug."

I office of President of the United State of America holds great respect for me. I remember when Bill Clinton was president he came through Western NY. A strong Republican, my FIL still came to see him and shook his hand. It was still a very high honour. While I do not agree with President Obama, however, I believe he deserves a certain amount of respect just because he is President. I felt the way people spoke about George Bush was extremely rude and disrespectful. It does not matter if you agree with his politics or not, he was still POTUS.
So if that same business owner gave toward Obama's election (Many business owners do), and you knew about it, would you make the huge fuss that people did over Chick Fil A? In my opinion it is far less serious to give money against gay marriage than it is to give money towards the death of millions of unborn babies.
I would say you have every right to boycott a business if you don't like their business or personal practices. Hugging the POTUS is just not a problem to me. I don't think this man is any less Republican or any more of an Obama supporter because he did this. I think he was just honored and crazy excited to have him there.
Lillie~if they take issue with how Obama spending their tax dollars that's fine. To boycott this man's restaurant because he hugged Obama is stupid. I have a friend who still eats chik fil a. I didn't start hating her because of it. I just won't spend my money there.
