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!”

Feinman further skewered Ryan for his controversial budget plan, having “no experience in the private sector,” and for allegedly following the “narrow minded teachings of Ayn Rand.”

The series of blog posts were published on Feinman’s personal blog, “the Progressive Professor,” where he self describes himself as a “liberal and a progressive.”

According to FAU’s website, Feinman teaches courses centered on American politics and history and is the author of a book on the New Deal era entitled, Twilight of Progressivism: The Western Republican Senators and the New Deal.

A number of students have complained about Feinman online, via the popular website RateMyProfessor.com.

One post on the website says he is “very liberal and other views are not well respected in the class.” The student added Feinman “spends a good deal of class time bashing Bush and praising Obama.”

Feinman could not be reached for comment at the time of publication.
