If you’ve heard of the Peter Principle (Dr. Laurence J. Peter), you can understand the absurdity in Bush’s new Identity Theft Task Force. Dr. Peter says that people within a hierarchical organization advance to their highest level of competence, then are promoted to a level where they are incompetent. Precisely the position of Attorney General Alberto Gonzales as the task force Chairman, who, in 2006, said Bush has the power to spy on Americans without a warrant. We want this man to head the body that seeks a solution to the most important issue before Americans today? It is an insult to those 8.4 million victims of ID theft in 2006, and portends of the obvious attitude this administration has toward the average consumer. It’s like the Edsel; you know you’ve got it wrong, but you don’t know what to do about it.
