10/16 Paul Ryan’s Pathetic Soup Kitchen Photo Op & More!

October 16, 2012

On today’s show Sam epically tears apart Paul Ryan for his epically cynical visit to a soup kitchen. Sam also broke down Wall Street’s latest theatrics, Andrew Ross Sorkin wants us to know that if Wall Street needs to be bailed out again it might not be so generous  as to save itself without as many pre conditions. And in other Wall Street news Sam is puzzled by the former Morgan Stanley executive who stabbed a cab driver and won’t be charged.

On the Better Half: Ezra Klein argues that it actually isn’t brave for affluent, air conditioned room dwelling policy wonks to advocate raising the retirement age, Sam concurs and elaborates, Sam explains what Obama needs to do in tonight’s debate and connects that to why he thinks that someone from the Romney campaign leaked the debate agreement between the two campaigns and much more.
