Steve Jobs was not only an inventor, he was a jobs creator. Despite his knowledge, Obama failed to take his advice and we all know how terrible the unemployment and economic numbers are. Jobs blamed Obama’s regulations and predicted his anti-business agenda would make him a one-term president.
Let all Americans hope this becomes reality.
Steve Jobs told President Barack Obama he was “headed for a one-term presidency,” citing the U.S.’s competitive disadvantages with China and a “crippled” education system, a new biography of the former Apple CEO indicates.
“You’re headed for a one-term presidency,” Jobs told Obama in a meeting last year where he asserted that the White House needed to be more friendly toward business,according to the Huffington Post, which obtained a copy of Walter Isaacson’s forthcoming book, “Steve Jobs.”
Obama has been anti-business, unless a business gave millions to his campaign (see Solyndra, GM, Chrysler, Bank of American, Goldman Sachs, Tesla Motors, Fisker Automotive and GE).
Jobs also told Obama that “regulations and unnecessary costs” put the United States at a competitive disadvantage with China, where companies can build factories more cheaply.
Obama is only making things “fair.” Wonder if Obama will claim that Jobs is for polluting air and water, since he was against Obama’s regulations?
The recently deceased Jobs also told Obama that the education system was “crippled by union work rules,” according to Isaacson. Jobs proposed principals be able to hire and fire teachers based on merit, and to extend the length of both the school day and academic year.
Unions and liberal teachers are destroying the education system. Jobs obviously didn’t know that Obama is anti-school choice and actually said that testing makes school boring. This on top of Obama issuing waivers for schools to avoid the No Child Left Behind law because it shows that 82% of public schools are failing.
Jobs also suggested that Obama meet with several other CEOs who could talk about the needs of innovative firms, but in a characteristic huff, Jobs declared his intention to skip the event when the White House added additional names to the list.
Obama’s economic team has no real world experience, thus the reason unemployment has remained above 9% for almost three years.
