Only UW System President Finalist Withdraws

Back to square one.

“After deep reflection as to where I am called to lead a university system through these challenging times, it is clear to me and my family that it is in Alaska,” Johnsen said in a statement. “I appreciate the strong support from the search committee at Wisconsin, and for all those who supported my candidacy, but it’s clear they have important process issues to work out.”

    Epic “Pass” by Johnsen.  In other words, Jim clearly saw how dysfunctional the UW system and our Governor are.

    Bingo, Jason.  He would have been chartered to downsize the system, and likely would have died trying.  Between Evers and the extra-amped-up system professoriate–not to mention the politicians who would launch missile attacks at anyone closing a U branch in THEIR district…..

    The guy made the smart choice.  No good reason for him to die on that hill.

    The communists in UW are dysfunctional.

    To the 5 brain cell liberals who think Blacks Lives Matter is a legitimate organization, well, apparently Black police officers don’t matter.
    Thos officer, who is Black, was murdered yesterday.
    Not 1 mention on the terrorist group, BLM, On Twitter, Facebook or their web page.
    BLM is a racist, bigoted violent terrorist groip.
    Liberals love them because they have so much in common.
