Skip to comments.Is Janet Napolitano Best The UC Regents Can Do?
Posted on 07/13/2013 8:55:27 AM PDT by Zakeet
Cronyism: Homeland Security honcho Janet Napolitano announced she'd quit her cabinet post on Friday to take a $750,000-a-year job as president of the University of California system. Is this the best the regents can do?
Instead of appointing a world class scientist, leading medical expert, respected academic or distinguished public servant such as the truly qualified Condoleezza Rice to lead the great University of California system, the UC regents opted for a political hack of no academic merit whatsoever. Their pick, Janet Napolitano, has presided over one disaster after another at the Department of Homeland Security.
Dubbed Big Sis by Internet impresario Matt Drudge for her tone-deaf intrusions on the citizenry, Napolitano has obediently enforced even the most absurd White House policies.
The real terror threat? Napolitano said it came from "right-wing extremists" and diverted resources in that direction while the real terrorists, such as the Boston bombers, plotted to blow up this past spring's marathon with no interference.
And just to underline what she really stood for Napolitano presided over the Transportation Security Administration, which today is one of the worst faces of Big Government, harassing terrified toddlers on their way to Disneyland and old war heroes in wheelchairs holding colostomy bags. Heckuva job, Janet.
Someone with this record at the University of California can lead that once-great institution only downhill.
Whether it's the regents seeking a friend at the White House to help them shake out more funds from well-heeled leftists or, more darkly, a pawn who will say black is white when bad news comes out it can't be good news to have a political hack like Napolitano at the greatest public university system in the country.
Pity the students. And what a wasted opportunity.

Is this the best the regents can do?
State colleges are retirement homes for old, washed up democrats looking to get rich(er).
Why wouldn’t the Regents want an ignorant, sexist, confrontational lesbian that thrives creating a hostile work environment? Seems like a perfect fit!
Remember - this IS kalifornia
The UC Regents: hacks appointing hacks.
Yes, Janet Reno was busy.
I think the core purpose of this selection is to send a message as to what their priorities are.
Big Bull Dyke Sis is perfect for UC. She’s everything they ever dreamed of.
What is so great about the California University system?
They put out more liberal jerks than any other system in the nation. It is a perfect fit for them.
I say it because we really cannot tell for sure what gender Napolitano is.
Are UC regents and elected position?
Richard C. Blum Appointed March 12, 2002 to a term expiring March 1, 2014 (by Davis); B.A., University of California, Berkeley; M.B.A, University of California, Berkeley; Chairman of Blum Capital Partners, L.P.; Co-Chairman of Newbridge Capital, LLC.
The UC system can brag about having the largest lesbian at the helm of the largest liberal training center in the US!!!!
I think they’re appointed by the Gov and maybe a few seats to the leaders of the assembly and the senate of Cal. Some of the positions may be determined by jobs someone holds like Lt. Gov.
It’s been a while ,so if it’s important I think it’s online.
to lead the formerly great University of California system.
And Big Sis would gladly change the names to the University of Aztlan at Berkley etc
UC is California's premier nest of Nazis and Marxists.
Queer, communist and crazy, a perfect match in California.
Fortunately here in Michigan we get to vote on Regents and trustees at the big schools of UofM and MSU. The problem is getting people to get off their butts and vote in those races.
Janet Reno not only is an obvious blockhead, but she’s a dyed-in-the-wool lesbian complete with a partner.
This is just one more piece of proof that academia, as well as the central socialist government, is stupid.
Alumni should withdraw any financial help to this disgraceful alma mater.
$750 K and worth every penny.
Goodness! UC system is now run by one of their own: a lesbo, fat, incompetent liberal and an asshat moonbat. What could go wrong?
Wow Big Sis is the sister of Buckey Beaver!!!
Condoleeza Rice is also a terrible choice.
We don’t need either globalist running our university system in California.
Please note of the several globalists on the University Board of Regents, Dick Blum, Mr Diane Feinstein, is a standout.
Now do you see how Napalitano got the offer?
This is the way with the underground Marxists. They reward one of their loyal soldiers with a cushy reward at one of their subsidiaries.
Napolitano's only qualification is an iron fist to steer California's university system, educators, and therefore generations of students into a future socialist paradise.
The regents are just preparing for the day when the majority of UC students are illegal aliens. Who has more experience with illegal alien admissions?
To Dems, education is all about ideology, not accomplishments.
She fits their job description to a tee!!!!
Aside from the fact that she’s the perfect candidate for the job, ideologically speaking, they probably also think she will be a great source for federal grants.
Donna Shalala heavy..
I wonder what shoe is about to drop that is making her leave...
It's more than a perfect fit; it's the long-term brainwashing plan. Every student will be indoctrinated with Big Sis at the helm.
If they’re looking for a puppet who would only warm the seat and rubber stamp their agenda then the answer is ‘yes!’
As a UC Berkeley graduate of the WWII generation I believe this appointment is not only appalling but obnoxious. I will no longer be contributing any funds for UofCal and I support all those who will also cut short their funding. Gov. brown and his cohorts/enablers are using one of if not the largest and most prestigious world public university to take it further into a dark world that Napolitano has been living in. She is a politician not an academic enhancer.
What more could they ask for?
Direct pipeline to:
1) Unlimited graft dollars.
2) Endless illegal data mines on students.
3) Massive warehouse of ammunition.
Add to that hundreds of thousands of pre-brainwashed student’s with weak minds and strong backs.
I’d call that a pretty good pacification force.
I can’t think of a more deserving state.
Yes. That’s the UC Regents for you.
It’s called a political pay-off.
Got another one in Florida - Donna “something or other” from
klinton days of woe.
With a California topic it is “right as rain.” I.e. one would not expect a reasoned, thoughtful and upstanding choice for a position such as this. Right out of the demo, Barry Soetoro playbook.
It's what California deserves.
