the political success of Bill Clinton reflected not only his compromises with Republicans on taxes and spending, his tacit nods to Reaganomics, but also his ability to infuse a centrist liberalism with reassuring nods to various kinds of moderate cultural conservatism — the school uniform and v-chip business and the rhetoric of “safe, legal and rare” on abortion, the easy Baptist religiosity, the tacitly center-right positions on immigration and crime and same-sex marriage.

It was all bullshit and lies with Slick, which is why he never received 50% of the popular vote. The GOP running hapless Failure Theater candidates like GHWB and Dole were the only reasons he won.

MissMarple2

Ialways thought Bill Clinton sounded like the Flim=flam Man from a medicine show.

There was a reason he got nicknamed "Slick Willy."

Re Barack Obama---winning a greater percentage of the "white vote" than Hillary is a damned low bar to clear. He did it twice; so did Trump.

You could say the same thing about winning a greater percentage of the sentient being vote when you are talking about Hillary and any candidate X.

Americans know that liberals celebrate diversity.

Really? Which Americans? What kinds of diversity?

They’re less sure that liberals celebrate unity. And Obama’s ability to effectively do the latter...

Ha. More like the MSM’s eagerness to lie endlessly about Obama’s obvious disinterest in unity.

"The Center Left Flees the Field"

"Kind of grim - when the proposed solutions are this far from possible for the Democrats one wonders where we are headed."

Kind of grim is how I feel about the direction the left and media (synonymous, why do I separate them, they are identical) are driving our country. The ideological juggernaut driving us seems to have no brakes since the GOPe has refused to help our president.

I felt sick to my stomach when I read this article posted on lucianne, which ties in directly to Mr. Maguire's topic for today. And, what a depressing topic it is -- unchecked immigration with no assimilation, whether legal or illegal.

"disinterest" is way too passive for Obama. His investment in disunity was active and energetic.

Henry, isn't it hilarious to see the Democrats develop this sudden reverence for the rule of law and assimilation. I'm trying to imagine Beinart writing this and keeping a straight face:

The next Democratic presidential candidate should say again and again that because Americans are one people, who must abide by one law, his or her goal is to reduce America’s undocumented population to zero.

Translation: The next candidate can say that again and again because the smart folks, like Beinart, know it's only campaign talk. Pap for the dummies and deplorables.

How can Obama create a university of social change when his minions have already created that chaos? He's way behind the curve.

Totalitarian members of Congress have already raised the red flag and the Cultural Revolution is in full swing. Why Dr. Seuss is now a racist! From my understanding, Horton actually hates Who's. And we all know where the Grinch stood on that. He confiscated all of their toys (guns) after all to create a Grinch-centric world order.

the University of South Dakota Law School declared Aloha Day racist. That just isn't Aloha.

Men are reassigning themselves into women's sports and the women can't win squat anymore.

The Red Guards are out in force and denouncing everyone they find as bourgeois saboteurs, revanchists or not revolutionary enough.

We even have our own Gang of Four; Omer, Ocasio-Castro, Tlaib and Waters (you could add 20-30 more if you like). Pelosi is rapidly losing control and really doesn't have any promise of regaining it.

And the People's Press just acts as scribes for the latest diktats.

The Revolution will not be Televised has changed to CNN's latest fake scandal.

Now in several states there are 2nd Amendment sanctuary cities and counties, New Mexico prominent among them and Oregon right behind. Despite the evidence that 60% of gun deaths are by suicide and the a large majority of the rest are African-Amrican on African-American, the Left continues the sham. But that horse is well out of the barn.

Encouraging Illegal immigrants, gun bans, de-assimilation and woke/#metoo, toxic masculinity exclusivity just ain't gonna cut it.

Rider University Dean Resigns Over Ban on Chick-fil-A in Defense of Company’s Christian Values

In the fall of 2018, Rider University in New Jersey surveyed students to find out which restaurant they would like to have on campus. Students preferred Chick-fil-A, but that choice was rejected by university leadership, which felt the company’s corporate values were insufficiently inclusive.

...

Rider’s decision to reject the restaurant turned into a public relations challenge, and official talking points were issued for faculty. Cynthia Newman, dean of Rider’s College of Business, is a Christian and resigned her position as a matter of conscience.

...

Newman explained her reasoning to the faculty and staff of the College of Business in her Feb. 14 resignation announcement, a copy of which Campus Reform obtained exclusively. In the announcement, Newman recalled the university rejecting students wanting to bring a Chick-fil-A restaurant to campus because the fast-food chain’s “corporate values have not sufficiently progressed enough to align with those of Rider.”

“As some of you already know, I am a committed follower of Jesus Christ,” Newman says in her announcement. “As such, I endeavor every day to do exactly what Chick-fil-A puts forward as its overarching corporate value: to glorify God by being a faithful steward of all that is entrusted to me and to have a positive influence on all who come into contact with me.”

“Everything positive about me and everything I have ever achieved — whether in my personal or my professional life — that is viewed as being good, I fully attribute to God’s working in and through me,” the dean continued. “Anytime I am kind or patient or wise, it is a result of God’s goodness and mercy and my yielding to His presence in my life.”

Saying that she “felt as though I had been punched in the stomach,” Newman noted she met with “those in authority positions over me” about the school’s decision. She said she asked administrators to apologize for Rider’s statement about Chick-fil-A and its “corporate values.” But, she added, that didn’t happen. In fact, the school doubled down.

Unlikely. Faculty retain the pay rate of their highest-paid position. So if a Dean or Department Chair falls back to a "normal" faculty position, they keep the pay rate of the former position.

jimmyk

So if a Dean or Department Chair falls back to a "normal" faculty position, they keep the pay rate of the former position.

That's not always the case. In my experience department chairs can get a bonus or stipend for the extra work, and that definitely disappears if they step down as chair.

I have no knowledge of how it works with dean positions.

ThinkProgress published a blog post titled “Why Immigration Is the Hole in Bernie Sanders’ Progressive Agenda.” The senator, it argued, was supporting “the idea that immigrants coming to the U.S. are taking jobs and hurting the economy, a theory that has been proven incorrect.”

The idea that this "theory" could possibly be proven incorrect is one of the many problems with the "science" of economics (or maybe just the practice of "journalism") today. Either immigrants are getting jobs (and therefore taking jobs) or they are not (and therefore they are burdening our social support system). It is possible (and seems likely in the current Trump economy) that at times there are enough new job opportunities being created by the economy and filled by immigrants to create a net benefit to the overall economy, but unless everybody who has a job is in no danger of losing it or not getting a raise or not getting the better job that they would like to have, the "theory" is pretty much a statement of an obvious truth.

At my university library, you keep your rate of pay even if you drop down into a lesser position. It is quite the plum gig to do a temporary stint as an associate director and then go back to your regular job.

Or, there are even people who get a promotion, absolutely fail at the job, and then drop back to their prior position (no one ever gets fired) and keep making the higher amount.

Some people who don't care about their reputation do this on purpose.

And people wonder why university budgets are bloated.

Don't even get me started, it turns my stomach.

The Clintonistas are currently backing Kamala. Someone here suggested to me recently that they are using Kamala to kick off the Clinton campaign because Hillary doesn’t have the stamina for a long campaign. The idea is that Kamala bows out and accepts the VP spot when Hillary jumps in late. That makes a lot of sense.
