Some kids were pro-Dukakis, a few were loudly pro-Bush. But it was clear who the faculty supported based on how depressed they were. lol

Anyway, as it became clear Bush was going to win going away, I made an offhand comment about how it was going to take the Democrats more than 3 election cycles to "recover from Jimmy Carter". The Head of the Department heard me and tried to tell me the GOP winning 3 elections in a row had nothing to do with that, and it was instead about one Party being for the wealthy monied interests, blah, blah, blah, voters were selfish, blah..

Even as a 20 year old, I knew this prestigious college professor was throwing me a line of bullshit. Maybe he believed it himself, who knows. But anyone with common sense who was paying attention, knew that voters remembered Carter and his disastrous economy, soaring inflation and interest rates, and how he was totally cucked by the Iranian Hostage Crisis. Voters simply didn't trust Dems with the presidency, especially since they experienced the booming economy under Reagan. Polls consistently showed that, and I knew it.

Yet this supposedly educated man was trying to pretend otherwise and act like the explanation was elsewhere. That's when I first experienced, first-hand, that something was seriously wrong with the political bent of higher academia - and common-sense and self-reflection didn't much exist there.
