GE’s Immelt: The Damndest Scoundrel and the Damndest Fool

That scoundrel proved by gut feelings correct. When Jack Welch retired and the scoundrel was named in his place, I sold my GE stock (on which I had made a nice profit) and invested it elsewhere. Too bad the country didn't do the same - the stock hasn't come near my selling price since.

“Jim Jett always used to say that his brother was the damndest scoundrel that was ever borne,” drawled Abraham Lincoln, “but by the infinite mercy of providence he was also the damndest fool.”

Jeffrey Immelt, the modern version of Jim Jett’s brother and Chief Executive Officer of General Electric, should be fired.

Actually, if it’s possible, he should be fired twice: once because he’s a scoundrel and another time because he’s a fool.

As a fool and as a scoundrel, the guy has wonderful timing; timing that can only be attributed to the vast Left-Wing conspiracy that aims to convince...
