Professor: Paul Ryan is ‘arrogant, reckless, cocky, overly ideological...'
Campus Reform ^

Posted on 08/13/2012 10:13:02 AM PDT by oliverdarcy

A college professor authored a series of blog posts over the weekend in which he denounced Republican Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan as “arrogant, reckless, cocky, overly ideological, uncompromising, and inflexible.”

“It is the promotion of arrogance, selfishness, greed, a mean spirited nature, and false claims of promoting the so called message of Jesus Christ as not caring about the sick, the poor, the disadvantaged,” wrote Florida Atlantic University (FAU) Professor Ronald Feinman.

A professor recently criticized Paul Ryan’s nomination, writing in his blog that “it is the promotion of arrogance, selfishness, [and] greed,” among other things.

The professor of history also critiqued Ryan for having “no foreign policy experience,” concluding that he “can be seen as not qualified to be Commander in Chief on Day One!”

As opposed to Sergeant Obama's storied military career.

As opposed to the current occupant of the White House, who apparently was qualified to be The Messiah (tm) from Day One.

Hey “Professor” do you actually teach your own classes? Or do have your “TA” show up

Does your “TA” speak English? Or is he speaking some broken version of Chinese that none of the tuition paying students can comprehend?

Hey “Professor”, how is life soaking up all that sweet tuition money form those indentured servant students?

Do you realize “Professor” you really should be pulling in about 45K plus benefits? That the salaries of all “university” employees are skewed because y’all are pigs at the trough?

“....arrogant, reckless, cocky, overly ideological, uncompromising, and inflexible.”

All very good adjectives, but probably, they apply to the “kindly” professor far more than they do to Paul Ryan.

Of course, some people DESPISE choir boys with a sharp intellect. At some level, they are aware of their own shortcomings, and are compelled to project them all on “people they don’t like”.

Indeed. He is correct! Ryan is a counterrevolutionary running dog of the Wall Street capitalists and an enemy of the people! Workers of all types should denounce this throwback to the feudal system of economic relations! The working class should not allow their fervor for the cause of socialism to fade in the least. Their loyalty to the party and their class must cause them to reject this plutocrat and his capitalist crony Romney!!

A progressive history professor at Florida Atlantic University (FAU) compared Alabama’s anti-illegal immigration law to “the anti-Jewish actions taken by Adolph Hitler and Nazi Germany

I'm sure that he forgot to mention something in there....outside of Ryan being a racist. /s

If I'm not mistaken, this same professor was totally freaking out about Obama's utter lack of foreign policy experience in 2008 also. /s

I’m getting a bit tired of clown academics with clown degrees from clown universities being termed “professors”.

If this professorial dork think that Ryan is less qualified than the Obamaloon, he really should get back to what he does best...serving hamburgers.

Leave the thinking to the big boys and girls.

I agree. There are so many second- and third-rate schools in the country. They are full of so-called “professors” who in a more reasonable world would be an under-the-car lube guy. Mainly, this pin-headed “professor” sounds like a progressive ass-clown who is a parasite on society. He knows he is worthless to society and so strikes out at those who are truly contributing.

I stopped reading right there. I couldn’t give two sh*ts what a predictably leftist schlub from academia “thinks” about politics. Of COURSE he’s going to lambaste someone the likes of Ryan. We’d expect nothing else.

re: “As opposed to Sergeant Obama’s storied military career.”

Wait a minute!! Isn’t Obama the one who personally led the those hesitant and pansy Navy Seals on a daring raid to kill Osama bin Laden?? Didn’t he jump from the helicopter, shoot his way into the compond and personally put the bullet in bin Laden’s head?

At least that’s what I thought I heard in media.

So Ronald Feinman, what do you think of the anti-Jewish, anti-Israeli actions taken by Barack Hussain Obama? You’re ok with those actions right? I thought so. Now, STFU and go back into your progressive hole!
