Kind of reminds me of Teddy Roosevelt. I can't recall who the statement is attributed to, but one corporate figure was quoted as saying, "We bought the bastard, but he didn't stay bought!"I'm going to venture an educated guess and say either an exec of Standard Oil or Rockefeller himself.I seem to remember from the book Titan I read a while back that S.O. originally supported him for the election, thinking he'd be "cool" with the whole monopoly thing -- but Teddy eventually ended up pulling a fierce 180 on them.But it really didn't matter. Not much changed after the break-up, except for the fact, as some may know, that it only made Rockefeller even richer than you could imagine, basically tripling his wealth overnight.
