Why do departing White House aides always make their former bosses look like idiots? [Letter]

Will someone please explain why former Obama cabinet members like Leon Panetta and Hillary Clinton feel they have tell the world about things that make him look incompetent?

How does this do anything to improve on the image of our country around the world, and why does this kind of behavior have to occur just after such people quit or resign?

Why can't they at least wait until the president is out of office, as officials formerly did? A similar problem afflicted President George W. Bush, where he was made to look like the village idiot by the liberal media.

How can we ever be a leading world power if people in our own country think our leader is weak? Shame on us.

C. Clem, Carney
