The bold is exactly what I mean, total bullshit.

For one, you work in government, not a corporation.
For another, hey, remember when Ken Kutargi screwed up the PS4 launch. Did he get fired? No, he got promoted to a position with no power and no responsibility. Hey, remember when the President of my last company let one of his VPs sign a long term agreement that hindered our growth. Was he fired? No, he (and the VP involved) were promoted to new positions that had no authority and no responsibility.

People get fired for personal misconduct, like sleeping with an admin. People very rarely get fired for screwing up. It's just not how it works. Blame lawyers, if you must, but in the past five years I can only remember one guy being fired for performance, and everyone was shocked. Everyone else just gets either gets all their power and responsibility removed so that they leave, or they get laid off (which is in no way the same thing as being fired.)

Hey, who was the last CEO fired? I remember a ton resigning (and often remaining on the board), but I can't remember many being sent packing. The Men's Warehouse guy, I suppose.

You're moving the goalpost, now it's only CEO's don't get fired, a minute ago it was no one in business ever gets fired.
