The a 15-minute feel-good photo op at an Ohio soup kitchen for Paul Ryan has turned into trouble and ill will, the charity's director claims. Brian J Antal, the president of the Mahoning County St Vincent De Paul Society, says the Republican vice presidential candidate showed up uninvited, scrubbed pots and pans that were already clean and posed for pictures with his family on Saturday. Mr Antal says he was never informed that Ryan was coming --and wouldn't have granted him permission to make a campaign stop there if he had. He told the Washington Post that he's worried that

Oh how horrible! He washed a couple of clean pans for a photo op. Pffft! What damage was done? The director is an Obama supporter, no doubt. Okay, so it wasn't the smartest thing to do, but it was probably one of those last minute decisions. He probably happened to be in the area. At least he didn't exploit dead soldiers for a photo op like Obama does.

Since they refuse to cover legitmate stories such as Benghazi, look for this insignificant story to be a 5-10 part series above the fold in the NYT and Compost bird cage liners.

The thing that makes me furious is that the director of a soup kitchen for the St. Vincent De Paul society (a Catholic organization) doesn't support the team that supports the Catholic position in this election. Shame on him.

Something keeps popping up in what's left of my mind: I've never heard of a Director of a food kitchen before (which doesn't mean nobody else has ever been given that title, just strikes a flat note at my first hearing). Manager, sure, but not Director. Makes me think "liberal elitist." And if he's afraid some of his private donors might quit their generosity, well, I would answer they must not be donating out of concern for the hungry if that's the case. Bet you don't see any of them at the kitchen washing dishes, clean or not.

"Director of Soup Kitchen" is a title reserved for those living in a tax free zone paid for by tax payers. How much is the leech paid to run the kitchen?

#1 says it all. Soup Kitchens require no "invitation", in fact, they're always begging for people to come by and help, even if it's to wash a dish.
This is clearly a numb-skull lefty who thinks that this little patch of poverty is "his turf".

So let me get this straight...the 'director' of this kitchen is fussing about a Ryan photo op that will be in the national media instead of doing the smart thing and taking the unprecedented opportunity to highlight the work the kitchen does and they needs they have that those viewers might be able to meet? Not too bright, imo. That 'director's' not earning his keep.

Dear Mr Antal-
As president of the St Vincent de Paul Society, I strongly suspect that you are a Roman Catholic, even if in name only.
Your wholly unnecessary comments concerning Paul Ryan's visy make it clear that your sympathies lie with his opponent.
As such, let me remind you of the teachings of the Church, as reinforced in Vatican II:
ABORTION IS MURDER
That alone should outweigh any other consideration for you.

They could have the Mooch show up in $300 designer running shoes like she did before.

Like one of the posters above, we brought sandwiches to a shelter one time and got fussed at by a libtard because we didn't serve the baloney on whole wheat bread! I then, very loudly, asked the homeless men "clients" if they wanted white bread or wheat. After the overwhelming response, the libtard mumbled something about "wheat being better for them". I offered my services elsewhere.

So, Congressman Ryan was shown volunteering and scrubbing pans which MIGHT encourage people to volunteer at a soup kitchen. Liberals really are moronic. On the other hand, wonder if there is another reason the director doesn't want attention brought to that soup kitchen?

I'll lay odds that if this guy doesn't like Ryan, he may even have lied that the pots were clean.
Speaking of photo ops, I remember just after HillBilly was sworn in, the Billy half went out to a road construction site for one. With shovel in hand, he was cussing up a storm because someone on his staff had mixed up the location and he was late getting there. He said something along the lines of "What is the point of doing a photo op, if you can't get to it". The comment was laced with profanities. Of course the LSM never played it but Rush did.

According to some of the comments, the local news is saying that the pans WERE dirty. And that a staff person had given permission.

The "Director" needs to get a life. Even if it was only for publicity, drawing attention to the soup kitchen and its needs is a good thing.

Some one has an agenda here. Three days later we get this story? No video when everything is on video today?

The key here is that the Ryan group was there for 15 minutes before the aprons went on and the pans were washed. It is hard to believe someone working at the kitchen didn't say "go ahead".

Was Antal there? Apparently not. I think his ego is bruised.

The story has fallen apart. Antal got in a snit and now claims he was misinformed. He wasn't notified and a worker at the kitchen should not have given Ryan's people permission.

Yes, the pans were dirty and Ryan did wash some. Pictures were taken.

So boys and girls do not cry. The Earth and the cute Polar Bears will survive for many more years.

Ant goes all anal? Bah ha ha ha ha. Who cares on this one. A Catholic charity and why did the presstitutes interview this man?

Comments below story says the Director says the media misquoted him. He was more concerned about donations if perceived as partisan. If so he could approach the press and tell about donations faltering because of Ryan visit and watch the donations rebound as the GOP gets into the furor. Very not so silent majority having been fed up to the gills with socialist and greenie experimenter obama IMO.

What do Soup Kitchen directors and debate moderators have in common? Tonight they have shown a control freak and vanity mentality and make themselves the story to their detriment and to their regret.

How are they different in their desire to undo their quick shots? Ryan might feel like helping the soup kitchen recoup any losses caused by the director.

Ukraine crisis: US runs the show

Mr Lavrov told Russia Today it was "quite telling" that Kiev had re-launched its anti-terror operation against pro-Russian gunmen during a visit by US Vice-President Joe Biden. Kiev and the West say Moscow commands the gunmen - claims denied by Russia. In the past month, pro-Russian militants have overrun several cities in the eastern Donetsk region. They have occupied public buildings and installed their own officials, in similar tactics to those used to take over the Ukrainian region of Crimea earlier in the year. The US had earlier demanded that Moscow must publicly call for pro-Russian gunmen to lay down their weapons and

While America’s wealthiest citizens continue to outpace their global peers, the country’s middle class has lost its long held distinction of being the most affluent in the world according to new research. Although economic growth in the United States continues to be as strong as in many other countries--or stronger--only a small percentage of American households are fully benefiting from it, according to the LIS analysis. Based on surveys conducted over the past 35 years, income across the lower--and middle-income tiers of American society has plateaued over that time, while citizens in other advanced countries have received considerably larger rises.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
