The "Peter Principle" is the concept applied in Corporate America where employees will rise to their highest level of incompetence. This used to be the case in almost all sectors of America until "Affirmative Action" came into being. The "Peter Principle" is still followed but, when an individual rises to their highest level of incompetence, and, they happen to qualify for an Affirmative Action program, then the sky's the limit for incompetence. ....VOILA. ....OBAMA. .....!!!! !
