When I grow up I want to screw up at big companies and get rich, Vol. II

Bob Nardelli, passed over by GE for top spot, former CEO of Home Depot before being $500 million to go away, former head of Chrysler while screwing that up, too, has now left the investment firm that had installed him at Chrysler. The man’s got to approaching $750 million, all for failing at what he says he can do. Yet he keeps getting hired. Lucky shareholders.

  1. My husband has been following the exploits of this clown and his accumulating wealth ever since Nardelli ran Home Depot into the ground. He figures Nardelli’s connection to Jack Welch, another “fave” of my hubby, must somehow provide an invincible golden shield.

    But honestly, WTF? Who in their right mind would not be agog, aghast, bewildered and nonplussed by the insanity of it all? And that’s on a good day.

    Last I read, Cerebus parked Nrdelli as the CEO of Freedom Arms, the guns & ammo roll-up company that owns Remington, Busmaster, DPMS, Marlin Barnes Bullets and other brands.

    And then there’s Jon Corzine…. Still not wearing an orange jumpsuit; he must know where a lot of skeletons are buried.

    Corzine is a marked man and will have to hide for the rest of his life.

    Ahhhh… Here’s the ticket: Los Federales should put him into protective solitary confinement for the rest of his life. You know, not as punishment but for his SAFETY.

    That would be too good for him. He will never do any time. He must know where a lot of the bodies are buried. Look for him to skip town and live the rest of his life in France. I hope he did not abscond with any Russian money. They will hunt him down no matter where he goes. One way or another, he is toast.
