Steve Jobs Predicts the Future of Barack Obama & His Jobs Plan … “You’re Headed For A One-Term Presidency”
STEVE JOBS WAS NO FAN OF OBAMA’S JOBS PLAN AND OBAMANOMICS …
Steve Jobs, Apple’s co-founder who recently passed away from pancreatic cancer, might have been a liberal Democrat, but it appears that he agreed little with President Barack Obama and his economic policies. Jobs told Barack Obama in 2010 that “you’re headed for a one term Presidency”, stating that the Obama administrations needed to be more business friendly. I have always respected Jobs as a business man and his tech genius vision, but who knew that I would also agree with Jobs politically when it came to Obama’s dismal economic policies and the plight of the American education system, ruined by teacher unions.
Jobs on jobs … “Obama will be a one term president”
Jobs, who was known for his prickly, stubborn personality, almost missed meeting President Obama in the fall of 2010 … When he finally relented and they met at the Westin San Francisco Airport, Jobs was characteristically blunt. He seemed to have transformed from a liberal into a conservative.
“You’re headed for a one-term presidency,” he told Obama at the start of their meeting, insisting that the administration needed to be more business-friendly. As an example, Jobs described the ease with which companies can build factories in China compared to the United States, where “regulations and unnecessary costs” make it difficult for them.
Jobs also criticized America’s education system, saying it was “crippled by union work rules,” noted Isaacson. “Until the teachers’ unions were broken, there was almost no hope for education reform.” Jobs proposed allowing principals to hire and fire teachers based on merit, that schools stay open until 6 p.m. and that they be open 11 months a year.
VIDEO from the 60 Minutes interview discussing Job’s pancreatic cancer and Apple’s visionary in delaying surgery. It is one of the events that is discussed in Steve Job’s autobiography coming out this Monday.
In one of the most hotly-anticipated biographies of the year, “Steve Jobs,” author Walter Isaacson reveals that the Apple CEO offered to design political ads for President Obama’s 2012 campaign despite being highly critical of the administration’s policies and that Jobs refused potentially life-saving surgery on his pancreatic cancer because he felt it was too invasive. Nine months later, he got the operation but it was too late.
Needless to say, Obama obviously learned nothing from the dearly departed Steve Jobs as Obama continues along the path of demonizing business. Jobs truly is a visionary … Obama will lose in 2012 and probably not be reelected. We can all hope for that change, but let’s go out and vote en mass instead.
