The Ticket - Tue, Oct 16, 2012 Ryan at a soup kitchen in Youngstown, Ohio, on Oct. Paul Ryan stopped by a soup kitchen in Youngstown, Ohio, over the weekend for what seemed to be your typical campaign photo opportunity. "We just wanted to come by and say thanks for doing what you do," Ryan said. Vincent De Paul Society, the faith-based charity that runs the soup kitchen, the campaign did not have permission and "ramrodded their way" into the facility. Romney treating Ohio as a must-win state "The photo op they did wasn't even accurate," Antal continued. He just came in here to get his picture taken at the dining hall." An aide for Mitt Romney's campaign told the paper that the campaign sent a staffer to the soup kitchen ahead of Ryan's visit and "spoke with a woman in charge on-site, who said that it would be fine for the congressman to stop by." told ABC News, "It was a great opportunity to highlight the importance of volunteerism and local charities." Antal, though, said it was just too risky for the charity to appear to be favoring one party over the other. "I can't afford to lose funding from these private individuals," he told the Post. "If this was the Democrats, I'd have the same exact problem." It may sound silly, but there's a reason even a soup kitchen controversy could impact the presidential race. "You can probably win the presidency without Ohio, but I wouldn't want to take the risk," Ohio Sen. GideonL 8 mins ago True, but Ryan's point is to show off himself, rather than the charity. You can tell because the soup kitchen president says that he came in to take a picture. Brian o 1 day 2 hrs ago I read something in the Bible where Jesus said (paraphrased) don't seek glory in your charity, do it quietly without fanfare or self promotion. KED 24 mins ago Right wingers will do anything to buy or get a vote. Paul ryan knows he has no interest in looking out for the homeless. If it was up to him, they would be sleeping in the street. lance 2 mins 33 secs ago After the 1936 Berlin Olympics, the white American athletes were invited to meet Roosevelt. No such invitation was made to the black athletes including even Jesse Owens, who had won four gold medals. A widely believed myth about the 1936 games was that Hitler had snubbed Owens, something that never happened. KarenS o 1 day 3 hrs ago Princess Anne who does a great deal of charity work once refused to pose for a picture holding a starving child. I hate these phony baloney photo ops when they are done by either side. matthew o 1 day 3 hrs ago Our constitution should require all government officials to live off of the exact average of every living American for that matter. Average living wage, average health care, average work week and average vacation. How can we ever expect to be represented properly through people who have no idea how the average american lives? paulc o 17 hrs ago As someone who works for a nonprofit, I see volunteers as a huge asset and am always thankful for them. Faking volunteer work is an insult to those who take the time to make a difference, often at their own expense, because they value the nature of the work they do. foo o 1 day 4 hrs ago My family has worked a local soup kitchen a few times. But it's a very small thing compared to what the patrons are going through every day. Noel S o 1 day 2 hrs ago Wouldn't it be nice if they volunteered for more than 15 minutes? Eight hours would convince me that they were doing it for the charity instead of a photo op. image guy o 1 day 2 hrs ago Most charitable organizations do not want to be associated with just 1 side of the political spectrum, so it makes sense they would be upset at this. Thompson says son feels terrible for Obama remark Republican Senate candidate Tommy Thompson said Tuesday that his son feels terrible for suggesting that voters should send President Barack Obama back to Kenya. Egyptian father: Daughter punished for not veiling A teacher in southern Egypt punished two 12-year-old schoolgirls for not wearing the Muslim headscarf by cutting their hair, the father of one girl said Wednesday, in an incident that stokes concerns over personal rights following the rise of Islamist political movements. Candy Crowley Attempts to Clear Up Debate's Rose Garden Moment CNN's Candy Crowley, the moderator in Tuesday's presidential debate, attempted on Wednesday to clarify a testy exchange over remarks President Obama made in the Rose Garden the day after the terrorist attack in Libya. Baggage handler at NYC airport gets life in prison The testimony at a federal drug trafficking trial was chilling: Jurors heard how bribed baggage handlers at John F Kennedy International Airport concealed cocaine on commercial jets inside sensitive wing assembly compartments. Pakistanis divided on army offensive after attack Despite widespread outrage over the Taliban shooting of a female teenage activist, Pakistani leaders and opinion makers are divided over whether the government should respond by targeting the militants' last major sanctuary along the Afghan border. d_/Y=YAHOO/R S=lmsid:a077000000CFoGyAAL/EXP=1350508506/L=crxH_kPDlDnKtHbgD35howBERTf ow1B_A7oABS1Q/B=Zm_wV9BDRvI-/J=1350501306517214/K=e7ZqEElv3MHAdLQX0R9dv A/A=6707699/R=0/* Yahoo!

tried to destroy a pizza joint where President Obama got a bear hug from its GOP owner, Republicans have spent the last week harassing, and trying to destroy, a soup kitchen where Paul Ryan held a now-infamous photo opp. Shutterstock Brian J Antal, president of the Mahoning County St. Vincent De Paul Society, confirmed that donors have begun an exodus in protest over Ryan's embarrassment. "You can rest assured there has been a substantial backlash." Ryan supporters have now targeted Antal and his soup kitchen, Antal said, including making hundreds of angry phone calls. Some members of Antal's volunteer staff have had to endure the barrage as well, he said. per Huff Post Hill, Democrats have risen to the challenge and saved the soup kitchen that Romney/Ryan supporters tried to put out of business. "The soup kitchen facing a donor backlash in the wake of Paul Ryan's embarrassing photo op has been rescued by the internet. The day after HuffPost broke the kitchen's sad news, Corey Snow of Olympia Washington, organized an online fundraising drive on the charity's behalf. By Monday morning, donations had reached more than $12,600. People are hungry regardless of whether you vote Democrat or Republican,' he said. He plans on turning in his donations to the soup kitchen by mid December. The election will still be over but people will still be hungry,' he said. It's really kind of astounding, and speaks volumes to what the Republican party has become, that Romney/Ryan supporters would try to destroy a soup kitchen that feeds the poor and the homeless. com with your pet's photo, name and breed, your name and where you live (if you don't mind them being published), and tell us something about your pet (goofy, touching, whatever you like), and we'll include it in our Readers' Pets archive and we might just write a post about it too!

Vincent De Paul Society is losing donors as a result of the photo. "It appears to be a substantial amount," charity president Brian Antal told the Post. "You can rest assured there has been a substantial backlash." Antal declined to mention specific numbers, citing privacy concerns. For those who haven't been following, er, soup kitchen-gate, here's what happened. Ryan stopped by on Saturday morning and offered to wash a few dishes. However, according to Antal, the Ryan camp wasn't exactly invited. Antal also said that "If this was the Democrats, I'd have the same exact problem." A spokesperson for Ryan told the Washington Post that a staff member reached out to the charity before stopping by and was told that "it would be fine for the congressman to stop by." Mitt Romney takes lead in projected electoral vote count Real Clear Politics now projects that Mitt Romney has more likely electoral votes than President Barack Obama, although Romney is well short of the 270 votes needed to win the election. Candy Crowley Self-Destructs Just how badly did CNN's Candy Crowley destroy her first (and hopefully last) attempt as a presidential debate moderator? More than 65 million people saw that she is to debate moderation as CNN is to "news." NY woman, 86, falls off cliff while raking leaves Authorities say an 86-year-old western New York woman tumbled off a cliff while doing yard work and clung to a tree for an hour before being rescued.
