look up any word, like pussy:
 
1.
A complete and total screw-up. From President George W. Bush's infamous comment to FEMA chief Michael D. Brown while the latter was botching the federal response to Hurricane Katrina: "Brownie, you're doing a heck of a job."
Ben Affleck, you're doing a heck of a job on Gigli.

The captain of the Titanic did a heck of a job.

Varus, you're doing a heck of a job with those Legions.

How well one does at blowing high ranking Republican officials. Swallowing is a must. Usually results in an appointment as bureau chief of some federal agency. Must achieve this score at least twice to head become Attorney General.
Dubya rated Brownie's fantastic hummer on national television. "Heck of a job," Dubya proclaimed, and Brownie beamed like Thomas the Tank Engine. Normally this would mean CEO of some defense or drug company at the end of the administration, but unfortunately it was during the Katrina disaster. Brownie's chances for that were severely curtailed. Not that Brownie minded, but he would have to receive his perks through the back door.

Total screw-up. Usually used ironically, to indicate when someone's self-delusion is in direct contradiction to well-known and easily-observed facts.

Phrase used by George W. Bush to refer to Michael Brown, then head of FEMA, during the response to Katrina. And the mocking was rightfuly deserved, as Brown was more or less inactive during the crisis, possibly delaying the establishment of refugee camps outside the city. The Mayor and the Governor fucked up completely, but Brown and Bush did as well. It is completely improper to try and protect them from blame and focus only on local and state officials.
The fact of the matter is that Mike "heck of a job" Brown fucked up the FEMA response. He did nothing to help the people of New Orleans for several days (and that is not because the evacuation is still going), and only after the National Guard finally arrived was anything done.

This is Bush speak for, "...couldn't find his ass with a map."

Like Brownie, George W. Bush is doing a heck of a job. (Can we fire this loser now?)

The captain of the Titanic was off duty when the ocean-liner struck the iceberg. That would mean that whoever decided to push the ship into it's fastest speed even though it was at an ultimately disastrous angle did a heck of a job. Cpt. Edward John Smith went down with his ship.

a euphemism of the old adage, "hell of a job"

(note: euphemisms are used widely by politicians as a mild form of a word or phrase, in order to maintain a politically correct, less offensive tone; however, in doing so, their remarks generally come off as lame or insincere, even wimpy)

Use of "heck of a job" generally means the speaker does not have the guts (wherewithal) to speak directly, and so "softens" the phrase "hell of a job" in a euphemistic attempt to act like an everyday, regular, run-of-the-mill person.

For instance, when an Elitist like G. W. Bush, in order to appear to be a Populist, says one of his staff is doing a "heck of a job," we wonder why he doesn't just say the guy is doing a "hell of a job." It is then that we realize, that neither is doing a "hell of a job" because they do not know what one is...
GWB to MDB-"Brownie, you're doing a heck of a job."

GWB to his father-"Daddy, you did a heck of a job as President."

Right-wing Fascist types to whoever will listen-"GWB is doing a heck of a job."
