Peter Bush, Peter Obama, Peter Principle
The predominant reason given as to why the Bush administration failed on so many counts was that George Bush really didn't believe in government (an exceedingly bizarre assertion in that the fellow grew it so massively) and so of course he was going to royally fuck things up. An interesting theory (albeit a trifle paranoiac), but being that that couldn't conceivably be the reason for our current President's ineptness and massive failures, might we at this late juncture at least take a look at a couple of alternative explanations; the inherent incompetence of government bureaucracy, political hubris, the will to power, corruption and cronyism, dogmatism, etc.? I mean, it certainly couldn't hurt, right?
