Obama’s Former Law School Professor: The President ‘Must Be Defeated’ [Video]

According to a recent YouTube Video of President Obama’s former law school professor, Roberto Unger, has called for the country to not return the President to the White House.

“President Obama must be defeated in the coming election,” Roberto Unger, a longtime professor at Harvard Law School who taught Obama, said in a video posted on YouTube on May 22.

“He has failed to advance the progressive cause in the United States,” Unger said.

Unger added that Obama must lose the election in order for “the voice of democratic prophecy to speak once again in American life,” according to The Huff Post.

Roberto Unger says that if the Republicans are given the White House, there would be a price to be paid with judicial and administrative appointments but in the end of the day he said it would be more than worth it to avoid the military adventurism of the Democrats.

Inquisitr reports that in comparing President Obama with the Republican party Unger said that the Republicans are offering a program that is guaranteed to advance income inequality and hurt the poor at the expense of the mega rich and that President Obama and the Democratic party are offering the exact same program only with a “Human Face.”

But he also said that “the risk of military adventurism” would be no worse under a Republican than under Obama, and that “the Democratic Party proposes no new direction.”

“Give the bond markets what they want, bail out the reckless so long as they are also rich, use fiscal and monetary stimulus to make up for the absence of any consequential broadening of economic and educational opportunity, sweeten the pill of disempowerment with a touch of tax fairness, even though the effect of any such tax reform is sure to be modest,” he said.

“This is less a project than it is an abdication.”

The Huff Post shows a list of the other complaints of the Unger video which include:

  • “His policy is financial confidence and food stamps.”
  • “He has disguised his surrender with an empty appeal to tax justice.”
  • “He has reduced justice to charity.”
  • “He has spent trillions of dollars to rescue the moneyed interests and left workers and homeowners to their own devices.”
  • “He has delivered the politics of democracy to the rule of money.”
  • “He has subordinated the broadening of economic and educational opportunity to the important but secondary issue of access to health care in the mistaken belief that he would be spared a fight.”
  • “He has evoked a politics of handholding, but no one changes the world without a struggle.”
