Watch: Obama’s Former Law School Professor Says “The President Must be Defeated”
According to Unger, President Obama must be defeated because he has “failed to advance the progressive cause in the United States.” Unger went on to say that Obama must lose for the ”the voice of democratic prophecy to speak once again in American life.”
But Unger is no idealist in that he acknowledges that “there will be a cost … in judicial and administrative appointments” if Obama is defeated. But Unger believes that ”military adventurism” would be the same under a Republican president as it is under Obama.
In short, Unger believes 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.”
