Default Paul Ryan at work

Finally learning a trade and practicing what he's preaching. Like not living off the taxpayers like he's done all his life. Papa Mitt will be proud and take you off his 47% list pretty soon.
He's staying pretty clean, course the dishes were already clean.


Did Paul Ryan pretend to wash dishes for fake photo op at soup kitchen? | al.com

Conviently ignored in your sarcasm is the soup kitchen director's statement that if the campaign had asked for permission to use the facility in advance he would have agreed to let them use it. Would the people being served appreciate the delay in service caused by a campaign visit? Probably not. In the charity dining room where I volunteer serving times are pretty well fixed. Complaining the dishes were already clean is like complaining that groundbreaking and ribbon cutting ceremonies don't contribute to the project's completion. It is a public show of support for the work.

Did you actually read anything about this issue?

He explicitly said he would NOT have given them permission.
from the article: "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.

The ironic thing is that the Paul Ryan crew showed up AFTER everything had actually been done.
They timed it so they would NOT have any actual work to do...
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.”
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.
.... Photographers snapped photos and TV cameras shot footage of Ryan and his family washing pots and pans that did not appear to be dirty.

In fact, while some of the staff had already left, others remained behind to wait on Ryan's photo op.
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.

If somebody is showing up to help or to show support, they don't roll in with cameras AFTER all the work is done.

You can see how ridiculously staged it was here.
Picking up a pot that was already cleaned.

Post Re: Paul Ryan at work

Watching the video again, he refers to "watering" the dish => it's clear he didn't clean anything.

Also, I think there was a "Ryan-ism" in there.
He talks about spending a summer washing dishes, and he claims you get callouses on your fingers cause it's so hot.
Well Mr. Ryan, I have washed dishes for more than just one summer, and I have NEVER got "callouses" because the water was too hot.
