The director of an Ohio soup kitchen is furious at vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan for showing up uninvited, donning a crisp white apron and washing CLEAN pans for a photo op.
Normally I would say so what? All politicians are the same: they pander to voters, then after they are elected the voters cease to exist in their eyes.
But this seemingly innocent faux pas comes on the heels of Mr. Ryan’s anemic performance against VP Joe Biden during the vice presidential debate. Not to mention that President Obama is leading Ryan’s running mate Mitt Romney in early voting.
From Daily Mail:
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 some of his private donors will be polarized by the visit and stop donating money.
He claims he would have the same qualms over a visit from the Obama campaign.
‘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,’ he told the newspaper.
