      All this article does is prove what we already know, the left makes up stories then try to back track it like saying i was taken put of context or some other lame excuse. Bottom line is you said it.

      And is the best the left can do, worry about Ryan washing pots? If so, Romney's got this in the bag

        Yes, AV, but both sides do it.

      It's still a photo op.

      If they were really interested in helping, like the president of the charity said in that article, they would've shown up when the soup kitchen was full.

        You mean like how Obama shows up without cameras or when places are empty?

        Get over it people, Presidents have been mingling with us commoners every election going way back. Kissing Babies, the old time train tours and the like. Personally, I would rather see a candidate do something charitable like what Ryan  did.

        I bet if there was a store next to the soup kitchen and Ryan went in there instead, we would be reading the headlines "Ryan ignores soup kitchen"

          Obama is irrelevant to whether Ryan's stunt was infantile or not.  However, if Obama has done the same thing, he is just as guilty.  Can't escape by saying, "YOU DO IT TOO!."

        Absolutely.  Send the secret service in an hour before to clear the place of hungry people before he shows up.  They could surely skip another meal for such a great photo op.  Plus, it would give Ryan an excuse to leave the public even he was at before it was actually over.

        Makes perfect sense to me!

          Don't speak common sense, wilderness.  This is a political thread after all. wink

          I'm speaking, of course, in regard to the majority of the responses, not habee's OP.

          This is incoherent.  You need to do some clarifying.

    That this is even an issue is really ridiculous.  We all know to what degree politicians will stoop before a major election. Ryan was most likely doing what he was advised to do by a frantic campaign advisor.
    I'm tired of all of the insignificant issues the media makes into huge issues.  Politicians always take opportunities to use photo ops.  I feel very sorry for our young children having to endure the immature antics of what's taking place in this election campaign.
