Blame Game.

Would you like to play a game? You would? Great! Let's play the Blame Game!

Perhaps you feel guilty or uncomfortable about something. The quickest way to feel better about the mess you are in is to blame someone else for the predicament. In doing so you might be excused from taking any responsibility for the problem. That gives you the leeway to continue to do the wrong thing you are currently doing, because you are doing it because the last person in charge didn't do the right thing. Having thrown everyone off guard with your bold criticisms, you continue to persecute all available parties, and you'll probably feel pretty good doing it. Heck, if you manage to pull the wool over everyone's eyes you also reinforce your own feelings of manic power.

The Emperor, testifying in front of Congress today, said his purview now was a victim of poor foresight by previous NASA leaders and Congress. "I do not want to leave this hearing or this committee with the impression that we are in a good position," he said. "We are not. The failure to plan for a successor to the space shuttle, and to bring it online in a timely way, was a failure of U.S. strategic planning. We are not in the position I would wish the United States to be in. We are, I think, doing the best that can be done."

If you want to know how to fix the problem, read the previous posts here at RocketAndSuch. Its pretty clear that Nasawatch has. Nevertheless, we had no idea that the Emperor was just now opening the three letters in his desk. We thought for sure he'd be writing his own three by now.
