Top public officials display their incompetence, egos

To the editor:

The Peter Principle has manifested itself — meaning the incompetent have been pushed up through the ranks to greater responsibilities. And since they have no abilities, they bluster through like a bull in a china shop. Ego and face-saving are the most important qualities they possess. Be damned, reality. Examples: Barack Obama, John Kerry and Hillary Clinton. God save us from their machinations.
