Talking about higher education - Janet Napolitano

| No Comments
Janet Napolitano is a politically connected moron ideologue (but I repeat myself) who could not find her own ass if it was handed to her. She was incompetent as Governor of Arizona, incompetent as Director of Homeland Security and now she is shuffling off to head the University of California system. Not. So. Fast. From The Washington Times:
Berkeley student government considers �no confidence� vote on Janet Napolitano
The student government of the University of California at Berkeley is kicking off the academic year by considering a �no confidence� vote for Janet Napolitano as the incoming president of the UC system.

The ASUC Senate will debate SB 2, titled Bill in Support of Undocumented Students and Immigrant Communities, on Monday, The Daily Californian reported.

�The �no confidence� comes from a lot of history � [Ms. Napolitano] has deported over 2 million undocumented immigrants,� said ASUC Sen. Sean Tan, who authored the bill, the report said.

�There�s a lot of fear in terms of what is her main priority as UC president, because she comes from a background of surveillance and apprehension and security,� he added.

The UAW Local 2865, a UC student workers union, has called for a retraction of Ms. Napolitano�s appointment.

�We call for a president devoted to rebuilding our capacity for teaching, research, and learning � not a specialist in cyber surveillance, law enforcement, and border security,� the union�s press release states.
Only from Bezerkeley -- talk about being hoist with one's petard. Napolitano is so far to the progressive statist left that she makes these students look downright Bush-ian. Napolitano dragged her feet on illegal immigrants, on law enforcement and don't get me started on her supposed enforcement of border security. For the student body to rise up and complain about her record makes me wonder what is in the water system of that campus. Napolitano is their ally, their ace in the hole. Who are they holding out for? Some incarnation of Mao or Pol Pot?
