The ideal situation is to get the heck out of Dodge. Failing that, document *everything* and get them to acknowledge the document. "I'm sorry, that last project didn't work, and you feel it was my fault. I've written down what you want me to do this time, so there won't be any mistakes. Could you please initial this so I know it's exactly what you wanted?"

If you have objections to his ideas, write them down too, so he can't say you didn't warn him. Do as much as you can via e-mail because that leaves a written record.

Then brush up your resume, because this is still never going to be a long-term situation.
