Obama's Harvard law professor says 'President MUST be defeated in 2012'

Roberto Unger is a Brazilian politician and former advisor to Obama in 2008, and also taught Obama about 'reinventing democracy' at Harvard.

He now says Obama does not deserve a 2nd term as POTUS !!

He says Obama has not advanced the progressive cause in the United States !!

Is this another example of "defection" ?

I would wonder just What more could be done ?

Obama & Co. has piled up massive debts and created a standstill economy as well as taken 10's of millions of economic prisoners. All while continuing the policies that seem to cater to everybody except the recent victims.

What else do they want ?

See the video and read the article.

Some of the "Professor's" comments don't quite seem so progressive however.

Many people view Unger as an "Alternative Marxist" with a revised plank system.

A former professor of Barack Obama has turned against his one-time student and publicly urged voters not to re-elect him.

Roberto Unger posted a video on YouTube detailing the reasons why he believes the President does not deserve a second term in the White House.

Mr Unger, a prominent Brazilian politician and an adviser to Obama in 2008, said: 'President Obama must be defeated in the coming election. He has failed to advance the progressive cause in the United States.'

The 65-year-old academic was in frequent contact with Mr Obama on his Blackberry throughout the last election campaign but has since decided that he no longer agreed with the President's decisions.

His list of complaints against the President is a long one in the video entitled 'Beyond Obama'.

The esteemed philosopher is scathing of Mr Obama's plans to salvage America's ailing economy, saying that his policy solely consists of 'financial confidence and food stamps'.

He continues

He adds: 'He has spent trillions of dollars to rescue the moneyed interests and left workers and homeowners to their own devices.'

The politician admits that if Republican candidate Mitt Romney wins the election 'there will be a cost... in judicial and administrative appointments'.

However his most barbed remarks he reserves for the Democrat leader saying that Mr Obama has 'evoked a politics of handholding, but no one changes the world without a struggle'.

More lost votes ?

10000, 20000 ?

In the Beyond series, thinker and politician Roberto Mangabeira Unger imagines beyond the current paradigms. Find out more about Unger at his Harvard Law School faculty page ( and at his Wikipedia page (
