Bob Nardelli was the reason I won't shop at Home Depot.
He was Home Depot's overpaid wingnut C.E.O. No doubt he was behind Home Depot's giving the Swift Boat Liars 1 Million dollars to help them spread their slanders.
BOB NARDELLI GOT A 210 MILLION DOLLAR GOLDEN PARACHUTE!!!
People like Bob Nardelli are what's wrong with with America's political system, as well as it's economic system. It is obsene that a person like this can have thousands of times more say in our country's political course than the typical citizen has.
Robert L. Nardelli, the chief executive of Home Depot, who came under heavy criticism for his pay package and failure to lift the chain’s stagnant stock price, has abruptly resigned, the company said today.
In its statement, Home Depot said that Mr. Nardelli and the company’s board "mutually agreed that Nardelli would leave his position."
He will receive about $210 million in compensation from the company, including the current value of retirement and other benefits he was already entitled to, the statement said.
Bob Nardelli was in George Bush's mutual backscratching club:
AT HOME IN THE WHITE HOUSE: Home Depot's CEO, Bob Nardelli, will need no introduction when he sits with President Bush on the panel on "lawsuit abuse" today. Nardelli hosted a fundraiser with Bush in May, pulling in $3.2 million for GOP candidates. Nardelli's company, Home Depot, has donated $1.5 million to the Republican Party since 1999 and "during that time, no candidate has benefited from Home Depot's largesse more than Bush." But Home Depot has received a great return on its investment: in October, Congress secured a $44 million subsidy for Chinese ceiling fans, of which Home Depot is one of the main beneficiaries. Nardelli and his wife, Susan, have donated $76,000 to GOP coffers.
Here's where his visible money is going:
