    This is pretty funny if it weren't so pathetic. I suppose all politicians do that. icon_lol.gif

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/election-2012/wp/2012/10/15/charity-president-unhappy-about-paul-ryan-soup-kitchen-photo-op/?print=1
    The head of a northeast Ohio charity says that the Romney campaign last week “ramrodded their way” into the group’s Youngstown soup kitchen so that GOP vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan could get his picture taken washing dishes in the dining hall.

    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.”
    ...
    Ryan had stopped by the soup kitchen for about 15 minutes on his way to the airport after his Saturday morning town hall in Youngstown. By the time he arrived, the food had already been served, the patrons had left, and the hall had been cleaned.

    Upon entering the soup kitchen, Ryan, his wife and three young children greeted and thanked several volunteers, then donned white aprons and offered to clean some dishes. Photographers snapped photos and TV cameras shot footage of Ryan and his family washing pots and pans that did not appear to be dirty.

    Heheh-- busted! I'd read about this over on Joe.My.God - but the soup kitchen's statements had not been made public yet at that point....All the comments were of course noting the already-clean pan Ryan was squirting water into (and wearing a cloth apron, too....hope he didn't get too wet....:lolicon_smile.gif

    What a transparent douche (pun intended)

    TheGuyNextDoor saidWhat a faker! Pretty obvious he's never really done that before. If you wash any more that a few dishes at home you'd wear long work gloves to keep from burning your hands from the chemicals and extra hot water. Plus that cotton apron would just keep you wet!...
    Silly goose. He needs to learn about PPE before washing in an industrial kitchen. I should know, I work in one 5 days a week and married to a chef.


    sounds like you are saying he was borne with a silver spoon in his mouth.

    His dad died at a early age. And his family struggled.

    The facts so fit with the statement "Pretty obvious he's never really done that before"

    Its a photo op plain an simple. Like the thousands of other photo op's done before.

    You think Joe Biden has washed dishes lately? The guy who has become independently wealthy by being a professional politician?


    Paul Ryan at 16 was caring for his Grandmother who had Alzheimer's after his father died. And yes at 16 he had to go to work at Mcdonalds, flipping burgers and washing dishes.

    Outside of the liberal echochamber you all sound very foolish in how you are giving captions to that picture. Seemingly without any knowledge of Ryans life.

    Well, who washes clean dishes?

    But the real point about this is not the photo op itself. It's that Paul Ryan barged in on this private location WITHOUT prior approval and coordination by the person responsible for that location. That is what makes the photo op disingenuous.

    what is sounds like is someone did not like the scenario after the fact. If we believe "the blog" the regional director had a problem with what the local manager did.


    Again the guy worked in Mcdonalds after his father died at 16.


    The director was quoted as saying

    “I can’t afford to lose funding from these private individuals,” he said. “If this was the Democrats, I’d have exactly the same problem.”

    The director got heat for Ryans photo op. That's fine, I can tell what is a photo op. But to suggest that Ryan is some blueblood that never worked for a living is fantasy-land.

    How many shameless photo op has Obama done?

    How about the Op when Obama showed up against a Iowa fair beer-garden. Shutting the beer garden for 2 hours because Obama decided he wanted to have a photo op where he bought supporters he trucked in beer.
    So, certainly its not the first time a photo op victim has cried fowl.

    And it couldn't get even more nauseating. Obama was in accordance with the Bush adminstrations media blackout on Dover base photo's of fallen soldiers. All except 1 picture and he made it all about a Obama photo op with this photo.

    The only photo of the event was taken by the White house photographer.

    See, both Romney and Ryan are totally insincere. They both have the personality and warmth of a tree stump.

    And, of course, Obama would never do such a thing icon_rolleyes.gif Photo-ops, by their very nature, are generally disingenuous. Politicians do photo-ops pretty much on a daily basis.


    NEXT!

    It's really disgusting, the dishonest lengths that Romney and Ryan will go to to try to get elected.
    But, images like the ones above, are what really stick with the voters.

    It comes down to just 2 things:
    Who do you like ?
    Who do you trust ?

    So, it's easy to see why President Obama will be reelected.

    Joe Biden gave the greatest debate performance of all time and in doing so ended Paul Ryan's national political career.

    Nobody cares about Paul Ryan.

    I just want to hear the perspective of Ryan's kids (now and after they're all grown up) when they look at the pics and the circumstances in which they were taken.

    You will never see Obama's darling little angel girls washing a dish. I want to hear the perspective of Obama's kids on the job thier dad did to ruin the country.

    They are called phot ops for a reason. Just like the ones Obama takes visiting injured soldiers or laying a wreath down on a grave. Really? Is this really what you have to complain and try to show up a VP candidate. I am sure you can come up with better ways to hate

    Hahahahahahahaha, what do you know about politics? You, who swore all last year Jon Huntsman would probably win a primary? Bahahahaha. Biden's performance was a masterpiece, and yes, the greatest ever. William Rivers Pitt gets it, you don't:

    http://truth-out.org/opinion/item/12075-big-joe-and-the-joyful-noiseThe ultimate impact and import of what went down during Thursday's debate won't be immediately known, but the simple fact is beyond dispute: Joe Biden owned the night, and owned his opponent, in a way rarely seen in modern debate history...

    Joe Biden came to play Thursday night, and the public works employees of Danville, KY, will be spending the next couple of days sweeping up little pieces of Paul Ryan because of it.

    Biden...gave a clinic on debate management over the course of 90 minutes... a rousing defense of both the Obama administration and Democratic Party principles that was deeply reminiscent of Bill Clinton's speech at the Democratic National Convention. Mr. Biden's presentation was, like Clinton's, both folksy and factual, and - most important of all - he did not allow Mr. Ryan to slip even one lie into the conversation without covering it with bite-marks, bruises and blood...

    This much is certain: what took place on Thursday night in Kentucky was a clinic, a deconstruction, a masterpiece, a thunderclap. The sun came up on Friday morning to shine upon a world that will never, ever underestimate Joe Biden again.


    Pretty much.

    What a great example for his childen.
    Show up at a soup kitchen after the meal has been served, the people have
    left and the dishes cleaned.
    Re-wash a clean pot for the camera while your adoring wife and kids look on.
    Way to teach your kids to be total phonies, just like daddy.

    While wearing aprons put on by him. One of the younger kids was smiling as if this was fun. (I'm sure it was, having people looking at you and taking photos/video of you doing something completely stupid) The daughter had a blank look on her face mostly...hopefully she's at the age when she can see through the charade.

    I don't mind the photo op. Just don't involve the kids.
