• The President's Old Professor Says "Obama Must Be Defeated"

    You can't always count on an old professor of yours to come through with a decent job recommendation. Even so, it's relatively uncommon for one to go on YouTube of his own accord to tell the world how much he thinks you need to be fired

    President Barack Obama's former Harvard professor took to YouTube in late May where he condemned President Obama's actions during his first term in office. "President Obama must be defeated in the coming election," said the President’s former professor and 2008 campaign advisor. "He has failed to advance the progressive cause in the United States."…

    Unger posted a video to YouTube, entitled "Beyond Obama" where he urges people to vote against the President. In that video, Unger attacks the Democratic party, the President, the tax code and the United States economy.

    Wow! It doesn't get any more scathing that that! And he's an esteemed professor from Harvard University, so he must really know what he's talking about. Plus, he's Brazilian, so he has a useful global perspective. We really need to listen to what this guy has to say…

    That is not to say that Unger is supporting Republicans — he says that, If the GOP "had its way, inequality would become even greater than it is now and threaten freedom and prosperity even more than it now does."

    However, he believes that a reorientation of the Democratic party can only be achieved through the defeat of Obama.

    Ugh. Sounds like a typical academic elitist. And, from what I understand, he's not even an American. Why are we listening to what this guy has to say again?
