Obama on Pete's Apizza: "I recommend it, everybody go out there."

Pretty funny -- in the President's speech, he said this about Pete's Apizza:
These steps will make a difference for more small businesses like Pete’s APizza in Washington, DC -- I recommend it, everybody go out there. When the three owners had little more than a dream of opening up a casual pizza restaurant, they found it challenging to get financing. But ultimately they got a loan through City First Bank, a community development bank right in Washington. Today, business is booming. And the initiative we’re announcing today will help more banks provide more loans to businesses like Pete’s.
