A former professor for President Barack Obama at Harvard Law School, Roberto Unger, said that the president has to be defeated in the upcoming presidential election. Unger made his comments in a video recently posted on YouTube. The video was posted back on May 22.

“President Obama must be defeated in the coming election,” Unger said. “He has failed to advance the progressive cause in the United States.” Unger went on to say that Obama has to lose the election so “the voice of democratic prophecy to speak once again in American life.”

Unger did say that if a Republican were to win the election for president, “there will be a cost … in judicial and administrative appointments.” He also said that “the risk of military adventurism” would not wind up being any worse with a Republican president than it would with Obama in the White House 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.”

Towards the end of the video, Unger claims that Obama pursued healthcare reform but at the cost of economic recovery for the country. “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 disguised his surrender with an empty appeal to tax justice.”

The rest of Unger’s complaints from the video, which you can see in this post, are as follows:

“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.”
