Skip to comments.Is Janet Napolitano Best The UC Regents Can Do?

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.
