Roberto Unger, Barack Obama’s Former Harvard Law School Professor Says: “President Obama Must Be Defeated” (Video)
Finally Conservatives and Progressives can agree on something … Obama must be defeated in 2012!!!
WOW, even one of President Barack Obama’s former Harvard Law School professors has turned on the Obamamessiah. Progressive Roberto Unger says, “President Obama must be defeated in the coming election,” and that he has failed to advance the “progressive” cause. Ya think? Obama has been an unmitigated disaster for true progressives/liberals, yet they have followed him in lockstep, making excuses for him and defending Obama at every turn.
One of President Barack Obama’s former professors appears to have turned against him, according to a recent YouTube video.
“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 May 22. “He has failed to advance the progressive cause in the United States.”
Unger said that Obama must lose the election in order for “the voice of democratic prophecy to speak once again in American life.”
As stated at Legal Insurrection, check out the 6:00 minute mark for some doozies.It really is interesting to finally hear a true liberal blast Obama. Unger’s comments are what many liberals have angst over the past 3+ years. I would not be surprised if the Left stays home in 2012 much like the Right did in 2008.
•“His policy is financial confidence and food stamps.”
•“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 disguised his surrender with an empty appeal to tax justice.”
•“He has reduced justice to charity.”
•“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.”

Another blowhard that likes to hear himself talk. So glad that our tax dollars helped fund Harvard as well as subsidize student loans so that our kids can get educated by guys like this.
SM: The same blow hard who taught Barack Obama.
GIMME A BREAK.
There’s more to the Roberto Unger story. This is also the principled guy who in 2005 called the government of Brazil’s ex-President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva the “most corrupt in Brazil’s history” and then did an about face and accepted Lula’s appointment Brazil’s Minister for Strategic Affairs where he developed the plan that included the Belo Monte monster dam (and many more) and so much infrastructure development in Amazonia that it was the “last straw” causing Marina Silva to opt for resignation. http://lougold.blogspot.com.br/2012/06/defeat-obama-is-latest-pronouncement.html
