Janet Na­politano still coarse, boorish as UC Prez

CBS San Francisco does a hot open mic reveal of the woman Arizonans got to know all too well as loutish and arrogant. Never accused of exercising decorum or restraint as governor, Janet Na­politano brazenly puts her classlessness on display as University of California President.

Smacking gum like a long-hauler and clearly irritated as students protested the fifth 5% annual tuition increase —- during a Board of Regents meeting in San Francisco —- Napolitano turned to a fellow regent and said, “Let’s just break. Let’s go, let’s go. We don’t have to listen to this crap.” Her open mic caught the comment. After that, the regents and Napolitano filed out.

Her attitude was markedly different from her earlier, conciliatory tone at the very same meeting where she said of the students, “They want to be sure that their voices are being heard and I want to commit to them that their voices are being heard.”

To make their point loud and clear, a frustrated group of the tuition-hike weary student protesters pulled off their outer clothing down to their underwear or exercise clothes revealing the words “Student Debt,” to symbolize what they likened to having to give the shirt off their backs for continually escalating tuition rates.

Protesters said they suspected the regent’s meetings were scheduled during a busy week of midterms, but they say they vowed not to stop protesting until their message is heard.

    It looks like Napolitano, the worst AZ governor in memory, has gone full blown dyke since moving back to California.

  2. Conservative Since Birth says:

    Thankfully, Obama yanked her out of AZ for that pathetic stint at Homeland “Security” where she blamed domestic terrorism on veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan, Tea Partiers and Conservatives.

    Now she’s where she should be – in the insane Bay Area of California where she must feel comfortable with her surroundings and a big fat salary, kept from the outside world – in academia. I can just imagine the ‘hate America/white privilege’ classes these students are taking. With her at the helm, it’s frightening.

    She’s so crude – she never did learn how to act like a lady.

    • MacBeth says:

      “She never did learn how to act like a lady,” because she was too busy perfecting her mannishness.

      When she was governator, her advisors had her wear a string of pearls to soften her image. The ploy didn’t work.

        I still chuckle at J.D. Hayworth’s classic on-air KFYI quip after Napolitano left Arizona to head DHS…’the scent of Aqua Velva has dissipated from the 9th floor forever!’, – but SRAZ’s latest “smacking gum like a long-hauler” is equally barbed.

        ZOO:
        We can only aspire to be as quick witted as JD Hayworth. He’s a national treasure in that department. We do appreciate being placed in that rare company!

        He can be seen each weekday on Newsmax TV on “America’s Forum.”

    Janet Napolitano’s father was the dean of a medical school, so her personal understanding of the effects of these incremental-ending-up-as-exorbitant tuition hikes would be nil.

  4. SmallGovt says:

    BUT SHE WAS ELECTED AND REELECTED IN Arizona. I am not sure she wont be back to be elected again as Senator.

    The same thing has happened at schools in Arizona and administrators and some employees just keep getting bigger pay and benefits.

    • Not A McCainiac says:

      How can she be back running for the senate, when you have told us repeatedly it will be Gabby Giffords or Kyrsten Sinema? Napolitano is now a California resident and making far more than a US Senator does. You have so many differing views, you have forgotten some of them……

      • SmallGovt says:

        Thanks and I believe Giffords/Hubby, Sinema, Napolitano will all be in play for Senate/Governor elections to come.

    • Not A McCainiac says:

      Thanks?? For what? I disagree with you. I support kelli Ward.

      • SmallGovt says:

        The thanks was for your opinion. It is worth exactly as much as any other. Kelli Ward will only help elect McCain.

  5. Night Owl says:

    Napolitano was known as J-No during her time as AZ Guv, for her penchant for vetoing any legislation that wasn’t deeply rooted in her leftist political mindset. Her time in office was a disaster.

  6. SmallGovt says:

    For all the bluster, when Janet was Gov, no one called her out for her lesbianism. Everyone seemed totally afraid of her. I am not at all convinced she wont be back.
