First Jackson Browne, now his former professor: President Barack Obama’s shrinking list of supporters just got even shorter.

Former Harvard professor and one-time adviser Roberto Unger has turned against him by making a video in which he argues that Obama “must be defeated” in November, and outlines how Obama has “failed to advance the progressive cause in the United States,” The London Daily Mail reported.

Unger, is a prominent Brazilian politician — he ran run for president of Brazil twice and served as minister of strategic affairs — advised Obama in 2008, according to the Daily Mail. He also was one of the founding members of the Brazilian Democratic Movement Party and drafted its founding manifesto.

Unger, 65, said of his former student in a YouTube video posting: “He has subordinated the broadening of economic and educational opportunity to the important but secondary issue of access to healthcare in the mistaken belief that he would be spared a fight.”

He added, “He has spent trillions of dollars to rescue the monied interests and left workers and homeowners to their own devices,” according to the paper.

Unger concluded by what amounts to an endorsement of his former student’s opponent, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney: “Only a political reversal can allow the voice of democratic prophecy to speak once again in American life.”
