    bogged up or bogged down?

    "Without leadership alert and sensitive to change, we are bogged up or lose our way, as we have lost it in the past decade.

    We often say "bogged down", so what is the difference between bogged up and bogged down? Up seems to imply completeness, as in "finish up". I am just wondering what kind of mental picture the word up or down is supposed to conjure up. Thanks.

    Either wrong collocation [[bogged down]] or wrong phrase [[b***ered up >> in a complete mess]]. I reckon that it should be bogged down.
