There's a principle of leadership that holds that
one can always delegate authority, but one can never delegate responsibility.
In other words, if you're the boss you're responsible for what happens on your
watch. The buck is supposed to stop with you. This principle of leadership appears
to be alien to George W. Bush and the assorted clowns, neocons, sycophants, preppies
and other phonies, including the big mouth so-called conservative radio and TV
talkers who are attached like ticks to Bush's administration in one way or another.
guys always blame others for everything that goes wrong. It's never their fault.
It's always some other guy who is responsible. They remind me of a murderer who
recently blamed his victim for making the murderer a murderer. "Hey, it wasn't
my fault I murdered the guy, I told him not to move and he moved. He made me kill
him. It's his fault. He's the real murderer, not me."
Factories being sent overseas? "Hey, that's not
Prisoners tortured by U.S. forces? "Hey, that's
the responsibility of some privates in the military."
We are constantly told that the President is the most
powerful person in the world. If so, then why is he so powerless to run a tight
ship? Who's in charge? Who's the boss? And, if Bush is in charge, shouldn't he
take responsibility? Shouldn't the buck stop with him?

messages of ennui and meaning in post-american america by H. Millard
