Traditionally, there has been a neglect of higher education in Utah. Lately,
there is a deliberate attack on Higher Education going on. I suspect Shurtleff's
bid for the U Presidents' job is part of that attack. Conservative extremists
think higher education is too liberal and too unfreindly to religion, so they
want to take control of Higher Ed in Utah.
Mark Shurtleff should just go back into private practice. He just doesn't have
the ability and fortitude required to run a great University. He lost a lost of
respect when he enforced only the law's which he felt good about. Far past time
to get him out of the public eye.
It is good he is done with politics because he has failed the citizens of Utah
by failing to uphold the law. That being said, he does not have the judgement to
run a University.
Politics is done with Shurtleff.
so there are no politics in being a University President?
What are his qualifications?
Good for Shurtleff. Politics is a low profession :)
I have as much chance as Shurtleff of being named the U president and I'm not
even campaigning for the job.
Che has a better cahnce of being the new President of the U!
He's a nice guy, but I seriously doubt whether his academic credentials would
have allowed him to become a professor, let alone president of the university.
That he is comparing himself to a Harvard Grad and Rhodes Scholar makes him
sound utterly clueless.
he should have never started in politics. he was such a DCFS puppet! good
riddance!i just hope he doesn't succeed in becoming president of the u!
Shurtleff is completely delusional if he thinks he has a snowball's chance of
becoming President of the U. All of the "academics" at the U hate his
guts and would never allow him to become their boss. Shurtleff is WAY too
right-wing for their tastes. Whatever semi-qualified individual is the most
left-leaning will get the nod, guaranteed. Also, I love how Shurtleff tried to
compare himself with some liberal Harvard grad....hilariously delusional.
That works out conveniently.After his refusal to arrest illegal
alien trespassers (enforce the law in other words), we wouldn't be voting for
him for much of anything anyway.
