Unger strike: Obama’s former professor says he ‘must not’ win in 2012
dailycaller.com ^ | June 17, 2012

Harvard Law School professor Roberto Unger, who taught President Barack Obama classes such as Jurisprudence and Reinventing Democracy, said last month in a little-publicized video that his former student has betrayed liberals and should lose the presidency in November.

“President Obama must be defeated in the coming election,” Unger said in a sit-down video posted to his YouTube account in May, which also attacked the Republican party.

“If [The Republicans] had their way, inequality would be even greater than it is now,” Unger said, before acknowledging that a Romney win would lead to some undesirable “judicial and administrative appointments.”

But those costs, to Unger, pale in comparison to the risks of an Obama second term.

“The Democratic Party has no new direction. … [Obama] has failed to advance the progressive cause,” Unger said. “He has spent trillions of dollars to rescue the moneyed interests and left workers and homeowners to their own devices.”

[Obama] has failed to advance the progressive cause,”

I should have known there would be a catch to this story.

Of course, the prof. just thinks that 0bama hasn't destroyed the country enough!

Whoa.... that’s a major crack in the dike! So far academia has built a solid wall of protection around Obama, his records, his grades, etc. If that crumbles... or even starts leaking a bit...

The key word here is “professor” — most of them are as screwed up politically as Hogan’s Goat.

Take what you can get, FRiend. If this Professor is willing to take potshots at the Bamster’s overexposed nether regions, I am not going to do or say anything to discourage him.

This article goes to show how crazed the liberals are.

We have this POS president who has affirmed same sex marriage, placed two lesbians on the Supreme Court, given them Obama care which will bankrupt us, put queers in the military and still they aren’t happy.

I suppose it doesn’t matter who they elect, they would never be satisfied without total Socialism.

I have to agree. As far as I know this is a first.

As soon as I saw he taught Reinventing Democracy I knew how the story ended.
And they all lived miserably ever after.

The MSM WILL pick this one up. In the run up to an election, the MSM works to make democrats seem conservative and tough. It’s a tactic to hoodwink Independents. Thinks ‘Sister Souljah’...

This crackpot seems to be the extreme left’s mirror image of that tiny band of so-called FReepers who are working so hard to keep Obama in office!

Of course, the prof. just thinks that 0bama hasn't destroyed the country enough!

The sole reason why the left has turned on poor little Barry - he hasn't transformed America ENOUGH for their commie tastes and desire. One can only dream they will stay home on Nov 6 because there is no way they are ever voting for a Republican. As my midwest relatives love to say "I would vote for a monkey before pulling the lever for an 'R'".

Make no mistake about it, this ass doesn't think Obama hasn't screwed this nation over enough.

I'm saying this again right now, if there is no political parity on these university campuses, there should be no federal dollars.  Those tax dollars are not there to instill an anti-American ideology in the young people of our nation.  Those universities ARE NOT to be indoctrination centers.  The are to be centers of learning, and Conservative as well as alternative ideologies.  Kids should understand all of it, but they should not simply understand Conservatism from a hostile vantage point, the one they're getting by about 90/10% today.

Give the schools and universities nine months to get their staff close to a 50/50 political parity, or cut the federal dollars off 100% until they do.

“Unger needs to get the hell out of my country! “

Then by extension, Harvard needs to go too!!! Harvard is a Marxist crap hole, where Unger is the norm. And while we are at it, we should confiscate all of Harvard’s “endowment.”

I noticed that parallel as well. Unger is to Obama what some of our FRiends are to Romney.
