Director of soup kitchen furious after

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.

The price of chocolate could soar over the next few years as surging demand puts further pressure on the global cocoa crisis--and experts predict the demand could become unsustainable by 2020. Experts are warning that a growing taste for chocolate in Asia--particularly in China--means cocoa farmers will need more help to provide a greater amount to export or manufacturers will be forced to use less cocoa in their products. It is predicted chocolate prices will soar to keep up with the rising demand--otherwise consumers will increasingly be offered products filled with substitutes, such as nuts and fruits, to ‘pack out’ chocolate bars.

In 1925, Rudyard Kipling wrote an uncharacteristically restrained and sombre short story called The Gardener. It tells of a woman’s search for her illegitimate son, who goes missing in action on the Western Front. After the Armistice, she learns that he has been killed, and is buried in a military cemetery. Arriving there, she finds a man planting flowers in the earth and asks him where she might find her “nephew”.

Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
