Intellectual giant Robert Reich: Paul Ryan was no match for me!

Clinton Labor Secretary and UC Berkeley egghead Robert Reich took to Twitter to buck up fellow liberals facing the prospect of a Paul Ryan vice presidential pick.

Have no fear, Robert Reich is here! Looks like he’s angling to be Joe Biden’s VP debate prep coach. Conservatives say: Yes, please!


    Robert B. Reichchchchchchchchchchchchchchchchuh weighs in?
    1) That’s featherweight RBR v. Super Heavy Weight Paul Ryan: No brainer there.
    2) Someone who “helped” The-Idiot-Clintoon as much as did RBR has the gall to even show the tip of his nose with that statement?
    3) How does RBR spell “EGO”?
    4) If it was SO easy for RBR over Ryan, why doesn’t he ask for a rematch?
    5) Watch the longer debate (there was a dual8 min. appearance with Ryan/Reich) here:
    You decide.

    We will soon find out who loves America because if the American people believe the libs lies and they vote obama back in then we are for sure in trouble.

  • Walter Rampton

    Liberals are just plain afraid of the up and coming debates so they will try to do whatever means they can to de-rail the eventual republican win. At least Romney has a plan to get the country back on track. Did Obama’s 5 trillion in added deficit spending and failed stimulus plans work for America? The one thing I find funny about Obama’s campaign appearances now is they now remind me of a pep rally for your local high schools football team. He can’t run on his record so he has to make it interesting somehow.

    You Liberal malcontents sure could use a dose or two of modesty. How do you get thru doorways with a head that big?

    • Rob Stevely

      How does Reich get thru when he cant even reach the door knob to open it.

    Wow the loony lefties are drinking the kool aid even faster now that Romney may have picked Ryan. Dentists are already cheering the choice. The lefties are totally afraid of Ryan because of his popularity.

    Ryan is young (42), serious, dynamic, and a wizard on the economy. He already has a large target on his back but he has the brain power to handle himself in any situation.

    Whatever doubts some folks may have will be gone by the time he destroys Joe Biden on National TV. We won’t be treated to Gingrich destroying Owebamao during the debates but we will be treated to Ryan destroying Biden. I mean Mitt will clearly beat Dinglebarry ….. but Newt would have destroyed him, lol.

    Romney/Ryan/2012 …. Let’s Get It On!!!!

      I watched that debate. Barney’s confusion between what is a federal tax responsibility and a state tax was embarrassing. He and Reich have no concept of the layer upon layer of exiting OSHA, EEOC, EPA, HHS, ADA, IRS and other federal regulations already exist to stifle business start ups and expansion.

      There are as many as 16 different welfare programs for a single mother in some states. Let’s say she gets $200 from each one, but probably more on others. That’s an annual “salary” of $38,400. Not bad for doing nothing but having a baby and expecting someone else to provide for it. And you know she can make more than that by “losing” and “selling” her EBT card each month.

    Just imagine, if Obama and his thugs can actually lie enough to whip their sub-100-IQ base into a frenzy and make them actually believe that a morally-upright, job-creating, but moderate, milk-toast, wishy-washy, Govt.-mandated-healthcare-loving candidate like Romney is actually an evil, corrupt, job killing, wife-murderer and South American Death Squad leader (the only thing they have left is child sacrificing Satan worshiper and necrophiliac… Can’t wait for that!)… Anyway, if the despicable liars can do this (look at the latest polls if you doubt their success) can you imagine what they will do to a true conservative??? This is going to be astonishingly sick and sad… Why do I hear Taps playing in my head?

    • Epilef2000

      ..tap..tap..its Central American death squads

  • Iman Alterego

    He’s no Jack Kennedy, right, Reich?

  • LJ Bury

    I am now a proud American. Love the new Dynamic Duo Mitt and Ryan. Obama will have to oust Biden and perhaps draft Hillary. I laugh at a Biden/Ryan debate tee hee hee

  • Robert

    @RBReich, I’m sure that everything Paul Ryan said went over your head.

    There’s a lot of irony in Robert Reich talking about giants. And by the way, let’s not forget that Krugman was a “giant” once. Then reality struck, and every economist with a brain came after the guy.

    “The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America ‘s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, “the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”
    ~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006

    Actual transcript of a Ryan/Reich debate:

    RYAN: Now stand aside, worthy adversary.

    REICH: ‘Tis but a scratch.

    RYAN: A scratch?
    Your arm’s off!

    REICH: No, it isn’t.

    RYAN: Well, what’s that then?

    REICH: I’ve had worse.

    RYAN: You liar!

    REICH: Come on you pansy!

    RYAN: Victory is mine! We thank thee Lord, that in
    thy mercy-

    REICH: HAH!! Come on then.

    RYAN: What?

    REICH: Have at you!

    RYAN: You are indeed brave, Mr. Reich, but the
    fight is mine.

    REICH: Oh, had enough, eh?

    RYAN: Look, you stupid bastard, you’ve got no arms

    REICH: Yes I have.

    RYAN: Look!

    REICH: Just a flesh wound.

    RYAN: Look, stop that.

    REICH: Chicken! Chicken!

    RYAN: Look, I’ll have your leg. Right!

    REICH: Right, I’ll do you for that!

    RYAN: You’ll what?

    REICH: Come ‘ere!

    RYAN: What are you going to do, bleed on me?

    REICH: I’m invincible!

    RYAN: You’re a loony.

    REICH: Robert Reich always
    triumphs! Have at you! Come on then…

    [RYAN chops REICH’s other
    leg off]

    REICH: All right. We’ll
    call it a draw.

  • Rick Nelson

    He will make short work of Reich and Barney Fwank will be slobbering all over himself.

  • Joe Eschman

    I bet they had to find TWO milk crates AND a phone book for him to stand on to debate Ryan…

  • lainer51

    not only does he need a teleprompter, but he needs a stool to see the teleprompter!
