    Charity president unhappy about Paul Ryan soup kitchen photo op

    Charity president unhappy about Paul Ryan soup kitchen 'photo op'

    Brian J. Antal, president of the Mahoning County St. Vincent De Paul Society, said that he was not contacted by the Romney campaign ahead of the Saturday morning visit by Ryan, who stopped by the soup kitchen after a town hall at Youngstown State University.

    “We’re a faith-based organization; we are apolitical because the majority of our funding is from private donations,” Antal said in a phone interview Monday afternoon. “It’s strictly in our bylaws not to do it. They showed up there, and they did not have permission. They got one of the volunteers to open up the doors.”

    He added: “The photo-op they did wasn’t even accurate. He did nothing. He just came in here to get his picture taken at the dining hall.”
    Scientific fact: If you took all of the veins from your body and laid them end to end, you would die.

    How friggin hilarious. They say in the report that he stopped by for 15 minutes and had time to put an apron on so that he could get a picture of him cleaning a pan. Cleaning that one pan is going to make such a difference for so many people. Ryan is such a fake.

    Doesn't matter. Ryan had his one and only debate and is a footnote between now and the election, as is Biden. It is the Main Event time now.

    This event is fodder for the Democrats! They should have a field day with this one. This Ryan fellow is so...fakey and dishonest. Let the real Americans put him and the other R person to the trash heap of history.

    While giving time or money to charity should be admirable, it shouldn't be done for show.

    Matthew 6:3-4 3 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:4 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Precisely - nobody should read more into them than that.

    And those who want to use this to slam Ryan should think about the photos of Obama with a shovel or pick-ax in his hand. (Each of those have too many moving parts for Obama to know how to operate them safely.)

    It's not like this photo op is going to sway a single voter's decision

    Pointless is all this was.

    This was a bad move, Ryan shouldn't have done it. Probably his handlers thought it would be good publicity.
