University of Florida squabbles over snub to Jeb Bush – CNN.com
GAINESVILLE, Florida (AP) — University of Florida President Bernie Machen says he was “tremendously disappointed” with the school’s Faculty Senate vote to deny former Gov. Jeb Bush an honorary degree.
The Senate voted 38-28 Thursday against giving the honorary degree to Bush, who left office in January.
“Jeb Bush has been a great friend of the University of Florida,” Machen said Friday, adding that the Senate’s action is “unheard of.”
You think this would have happened if G.W. Bush wasn’t President? This is clearly a case of academic Bush Derangement Syndrome being taken out on G.W.’s brother. This is also clearly an example of the complete lack of ethics and integrity of modern college academics and administrators. You can bet they all patted themselves on the back after this for having “stuck it to the Bushes” one more time.
