Why do some Americans do the hello/goodbye kiss thing?

I understand that Europeans do it because that's how it's done in Europe. But why do some Americans do it?
It makes me feel uncomfortable. I never know when to expect it. And I generally don't want to kiss most people.
If someone goes for the hello/goodbye kiss, is the only proper response a kiss back? Or can you just hug them and pretend they didn't go for the kiss?
