29. I'll never forget the first time I saw Mozillo....
Edited on Mon Dec-05-11 05:05 PM by AnneD
It was on Wall Street week with Maria (Knee Pads) Bartiromo. I took one look at the guy listened to him for a few minutes and said to folks on the Stock Watch Thread that the guy was a crook and CountryWide was going down weeks before it did. I based my prediction on several facts....

1) The guy was too tanned. At first that might sound silly, but mortgages involve banks and accountants-hardly the party boys and girls of the business world. And if you are really taking care of business, you will be in the office. That much of a tan speaks of someone that does deals on the golf course (less documentation ie evidence).

2) He was rationalizing the selling of his own company stock, hiding behind his family. A man that makes the salary he was and cannot send his kids to college either can't budget for shit and and should not be President of a company or is lying. He wanted to get while the getting was good. He was making enough to send every one of his kids to medical school at an Ivy League school.

3)He just stuck me as a sleazy type that gives the Mafia a bad name. He looked like a used car salesman in a well tailored suit.

And this was before the "official" investigation.

All I can say is "I'm shocked, shocked to find gambling going on." :eyes:
