Stock Price in DEC/2004 (2 months prior to Mr. Ives was named CEO) = $20.00
It's almost DEC/2013, NINE years later. Blaming predecessors nine years later for the stock drop, TARP, SBLF, OTC, closing branches, its micro MKT CAP, etc., is totally irrational & irresponsible. Period.
You're probably the type of guy that will, somehow/someway, blame Bush for Obamacare. Isn't that what you guys do instead of manning up, just blame Bush for everything bad no matter how many years pass and regardless of whether he really did have anything to do with it?
