One of President Barack Obama’s former college professors took to YouTube recently to rip his former student.
“President Obama must be defeated in the coming election,” said Roberto Unger, a longtime professor at Harvard Law School.
“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.”
He says that if a Republican wins the presidency, “there will be a cost … in judicial and administrative appointments.” But that “the risk of military adventurism” would be no worse 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.”
