NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Warren Buffett once said, "When a management team with a reputation for brilliance tackles a business with a reputation for poor economics, it is the reputation of the business that remains intact." Sometimes, though, we are asked to judge the inverse case: a sound business under poor management. What part of its reputation survives?Such is the case for natural gas and oil company Chesapeake Energy (CHK - Get Report) and its embattled CEO, Aubrey McClendon. As "questionable" as McClendon's recent decision-making has been, the fundamentals of the company remain solid.
