Removing qualified professionals from positions throughout an organization, and installing ideologists with no skills to adequately perform the mission of those organizations, in this case a whole federal government administration, under George W. Bush.
Nobel 2008 Economics Laureate PAUL KRUGMAN: "I also wonder how much the Femafication of government under President Bush contributed to Mr. Paulson’s fumble. All across the executive branch, knowledgeable professionals have been driven out; there may not have been anyone left at Treasury with the stature and background to tell Mr. Paulson that he wasn’t making sense."
