Screw-ups in High Position.

Have you noticed, when working for an organization, when the higher-ups of the company bring someone in from the outside for a high position and then that person proves to quiet a screw-up, upper management will not admit their mistakes and keep claiming their man is doing a great job? The new screw-up manager really has to do a lot, or the reverse of that, nothing, to get the boot.

The best example I can think of is when Bush told FEMA Director Michael Brown, "Brownee, you are doing a heck-of-a-job!" days before he fired him.

Why did Bush claim Brown was doing a heck-of-a-ob? Maybe because Bush brought him aboard as a political favor without really having him or his résumé' checked out. If Brown looked good, Bush would look good. It is simple logic. But, finally, enough was enough, or too little was too little, so Brown had to go. And he might even had to play the Royal Scapegoat.

Which, brings up something else. Bush continues to screw up. But the some of the people who I know who voted for him said they would vote for him again. I think they don't want to admit they made a mistake. It must be an ego thing.
