Meg speaks, HP tanks

Original post made by talk to Meg, College Terrace, on Oct 3, 2012

Meg gave a speech at the HP company meeting today, pretty much saying that HP sucks and isn't going to get better any time soon with her in charge. HP stock price is down 13% today. How much lower can it go? Do they need a more forward-thinking CEO to turn the company around?

Why did anyone think Meg could lead HP??? She did not do such a hot job for eBay, in the end. Did they not ask her to leave????? Was she not unemployed for a LONG time afterward?????? Was she not unemployed for a long time after her unsuccessful campaign for governor?"???????

Oh, yeah, she got a multi-million dollar golden parachute and did not need to work for years and years.

Then after following that track, she returns to the working world as a CEO of HP. Wow, they must have really been desperate.
