Director of soup kitchen furious after
Paul Ryan 'shows up uninvited,
washes clean pans for a photo
op and then leaves'

Daily Mail [UK], by Staff

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.

What is Vladimir Putin’s game? The recent unrest in eastern Ukraine has been presented by the Kremlin as an autonomous phenomenon, an upsurge of patriotic feeling among embattled ethnic Russians who long for the protection of the Motherland against what they see as a neo-nationalist regime in Kiev. It may be true that the initial impulse came from locals acting without Russia’s direct involvement. But it is becoming clear that, just as in Crimea, many of the “separatists” are not just taking their orders from Moscow, but are very probably Russian troops in paper-thin disguise. The key difference is that,

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving

The last rancher in southern Nevada has won his battle to graze cows on public land after a week-long stand off with federal agents. The Bureau of Land Management today said it would stop trying to seize the cattle of Cliven Bundy after armed militia members today continuing to gather in Nevada in a confrontation with federal agents. BLM Director Neil Kornze said: ´Based on information about conditions on the ground, and in consultation with law enforcement, we have made a decision to conclude the cattle gather because of our serious concern about the safety of employees and members of
