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." rofl.gif

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. rofl.gifrofl.gif

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. rofl.gifrofl.gifrofl.gif

According to a Romney aide not authorized to speak publicly about the event, the campaign followed its usual protocol for impromptu, on-the-road stops by candidates: A staffer was dispatched to the St. Vincent De Paul Society ahead of Ryan's visit Saturday morning and spoke with a woman in charge on site, who said that it would be fine for the congressman to stop by. The campaign did not contact Antal ahead of the visit.

The woman on site told the Romney staffer that some of the volunteers had already left, but that most were happy to remain until Ryan arrived, according to the aide. After Ryan left the soup kitchen, the woman approached a campaign staffer and expressed gratitude for Ryan's visit, the aide said.

Chris Maloney, Ohio communications director for the Romney campaign, said that the visit by Ryan had been intended to highlight the work of the soup kitchen volunteers.

"Our campaign and Congressman Ryan were pleased to bring attention to the meaningful charitable contributions the St. Vincent De Paul Society makes to people in need," Maloney said.

Antal, a self-described independent voter, said that he "can't fault my volunteers" for letting the campaign in but said that the campaign "didn't go through the proper channels."

He noted that the soup kitchen relies on funding from private individuals who might reconsider their support if it appears that the charity is favoring one political candidate over another.

"I can't afford to lose funding from these private individuals," he said. "If this was the Democrats, I'd have the same exact problem."

He added that the incident had caused him "all kinds of grief" and that regardless of whether Ryan had intended to serve food to patrons or wash dishes, he would not have allowed the visit to take place.

"Had they asked for permission, it wouldn't have been granted. … But I certainly wouldn't have let him wash clean pans, and then take a picture," Antal said.

Crickets coming from the outrage brigade. Ryan caught being phoney and not a peep from the Fox lovin sheep. Baaaa!

Be a little more clear in your naming of threads, when you wrote "Charity president unhappy" it is too easily confused with Obama, since he is commonly known at the welfare-President.

:P

clear up some confusion..

charity:

The voluntary giving of help, typically money, to those in need.

Help or money given in this way.

welfare:

The health, happiness, and fortunes of a person or group.

Statutory procedure or social effort designed to promote the basic physical and material well-being of people in need

Ryan's not only a bullsh¡tter, but a phoney. America has a real choice this election.

Have you been keeping up with 538? Nate Silver's simulations are showing a "scary" (his word, not mine) increase in the probability of a split between popular vote and electoral vote outcomes with the former going to Rmoney and the latter to Obama. That would be so sweet, especially since 2000 is still a relatively fresh memory for most of us.

And the use if the term "contribution" or "contribute" ...by the Left when speaking of paying more in taxes does not help in the distinction between the two.

Obama would agree "the home" is a good starting place for charity..... and from there, he steps in.

Then again, is Obamas brother still living in squalor (SP) ?

This thread isn't about Obama, it's about Paul Ryan being a phony.

I understand wanting to ignore that and focus on Obama, but try to stick to the topic. ;)
