Sure, PR has done some positive things, but the fact is that the initial intention was for him to have a temporary stay. There should have been a ribbon around this package by now. Me thinks he thought he could pull a bit more value out of the hat than originally thought. Certainly there is significant potential. There very well could be some significant business to come and the recent reports don�t even reflect the �real� possibilities.
On the negative side is that PR has taken way too much out for himself, not unlike his predecessor. His bread is buttered on both sides. Can you spell dilution? Oink, Oink.
Bottom line is that PR has been more positive to shareholders than fat boy. Ron was an incompetent manager.
PR�s strength [and weakness] is that he is a politician. Fiscal responsibility are never that big a deal with those guys. However, one thing - and this is important � PR has the political skills to open doors Ron never could. PR attempts to have all parties in the transaction have the opportunity to be winners. Ron wanted all for himself and that was a recipe for disaster�.
