Hey PHB - How about considering this an opportunity rather than a problem (http://dilbert.com/strips/comic/2009-09-24/)? I can think of a few possibilities: e.g. great time to invite your enemies/competitors for a friendly chat.
@EStz True. If we could create and implement the solutions by ourselves, we wouldn't need the boss for anything. If we could spend our spare time figuring out the solution to the problem "our boss takes credit for everything we do", then we'd run the place.
