Seriously, If You had a Majority Stake in a Large Company, Would You want George Bush Running it as CEO?

This question takes politics out of the equation and is meant to deal only with intellect, planning, communication and organizational skills.

Leadership I left out, any high school varsity coach has that.

Well that depends on what you want the company to do.
If you want the company to succeed obviously no, he ran three companies into the ground. However if you want to inflate the price of the companies stock illegally sell it and not get in trouble for insider trading while screwing over your share holders and employees heck ya Id love him to run my company.

    Only had to think 2 seconds on this one…NO, NO and NO!! Maybe he could handle the inner-office mail duties but not in my wildest imagination does he have what it takes to be a successful CEO. Communication skills…ha ha. What a laff.References :

    Check the Texas Rangers baseball club while GWB was running the show. During his years a the helm, they were the best teams we ever had in Arlington. Management was pretty smooth too. Other than the Sosa trade, he did pretty well.References :

    I happen to think that George W. Bush is a great man, but running a corporation is NOTHING like running the country. I am not sure what skills he exhibited when he was in the oil business, but I would want someone with proven CEO qualities.
    Typically, CEOs give direction and decision making based on subordinates planning and organizing. If a CEO has trouble with support staff backstabbing and undercutting as W. has had, the CEO would fire the individuals. As President, W. has about 500 people clambering to tell him how to do his job and at least that many newsmen dissecting his every move and telling us what he REALLY meant.References :

    George Bush had little to do with the Texas Rangers’ success. He was co-managing partner in name only. Rusty Rose ran the business and Bush hung out at the ballpark and shook hands.

    Here is what the co-founder and Managing Director of The Carlyle Group thinks of Dubya:

    "We put him on the board and [he] spent three years. Came to all the meetings. Told a lot of jokes. Not that many clean ones. And after a while I kind of said to him, after about three years – you know, I’m not sure this is really for you. Maybe you should do something else. Because I don’t think you’re adding that much value to the board. You don’t know that much about the company."

    "He said, well I think I’m getting out of this business anyway. And I don’t really like it that much. So I’m probably going to resign from the board."

    "And I said, thanks – didn’t think I’d ever see him again. His name is George W. Bush. He became President of the United States. So you know if you said to me, name 25 million people who would maybe be President of the United States, he wouldn’t have been in that category."References : http://prorev.com/bushcarlyle.htm

    1st one has to look at what was offered as an alternative. Rarely does either of the 2 parties offer anyone with vision. 3 Presidents in my lifetime has had vision that bettered humanity. Eisenhower, started the interstate hi way program. JFK accelerated our speed on the technology hi way. Reagan ended the cold war by bankrupting the USSR.

    I’m still looking for someone as conservative a combination of JFK & MLK. Based on each of their most fames speeches both major parties are more liberal than them.References :

    Seriously he has failed at every thing that he has ever done, taking company’s into bankruptcy. There is a whole list of failures in George Bush’s life. His DUI, his failure to even finish his service to the country.No I would not let him run the kid’s Kool Aid stand in the summer.References :
