You'll find that most bosses all have one skill in common. They can bluff, and make themselves look good regardless of merit at the expense of someone else. Unfortunately, if you want to climb up the corporate ladder, chances are that you'll have to do the same. Play against your boss at his own game discreetly.

Like a BAWS! That's what it takes to be successful in business -- take the credit when good things happen and blame your subordinates for the failures. If this seems "wrong" or "unethical" to you, you'll always be a bottom-level cube monkey . . . like me.

I doubt it'll provide any solace but if he's going to act like a coward like that, sooner or later his tactics won't work and he'll get fired. He won't prosper. Good luck OP, hang in there!
