It is now beginning to seem like Paul Ryan is a pathological liar. We've seen his miserable lies about his marathon and mountain climbing "feats." Now, here is something that really shows what a hollow, empty man he is.
Many of you may have seen some of the pictures of Ryan supposedly washing dishes at a soup kitchen in Ohio a few days ago:
now learn, from the Washington Post, that:
"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 nominee 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.
...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
the time he arrived, the food had already been served, the patrons had
left and the hall had been cleaned.
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."
Well, at least Ryan has provided us with a perfect example of the hollowness of his and Romney's claims to give a damn about anyone but the rich. And yet, as has become acceptable "journalism" in American campaigns, the mainstream press utterly avoids examining the unfitness of Republican candidates to lead this country, and the lies and smears that are their perpetual campaign tools. Thus, the press gave us Reagan and Bush, and did its best to help them ruin this country. Remember these two guys before you assume that Romney won't end up levering himself into the White House.
