Steve Jobs Clearly Told Obama “You’re Headed for a One-term Presidency”!
Steve Jobs official biography written by Walter Isaacson is near to hit the shelves and we are getting some highly interesting pieces from this book. The new tidbit is just revealed by Huffington Post describing that in Jobs upcoming biography Walter quotes Jobs telling President Obama, “You’re headed for a one-term presidency.”
Steve Jobs‘ biography reveals that he was reluctant to meet with president Obama in 2010 since he was desirous to have a personal invitation from the White House. However, he surrendered his instance within five days and finally they met at the Westin San Francisco Airport.
Steve Jobs clearly told Obama; “You’re headed for a one-term presidency,” and he insisted that being the U.S. president, Obama must place more business friendly strategy and should provide a relax environment for the investors in the country to build more and more countries just like China instead of the U.S. where regulations and unnecessary costs are throttling the source of investments.
Also, Jobs openly criticized the education system in America, and named it as “crippled by union work rules.”
Steve Jobs said at that time;
“Until the teachers’ unions were broken, there was almost no hope for education reform.”
Jobs also proposed Obama for allowing principals to hire and fire teachers purly on on merit only. According to him it was the only way by which those schools stay open until 6 p.m. and will remain open 11 months a year.
Steve Jobs, finally, reported that he met with Obama at dinner with six or seven notable SEOs of Silicon Valley who could assist Obama and his team to evaluate the needs of innovative business in the U.S. for boosting economy.
Jobs also objected on the White House’s lengthy list of attendees, Jobs said that it was growing too big and he told the officials that “he had no intention of coming.”
The most interesting part of the Jobs’ biography is the detail of menu presented there on his meeting with Obama. Jobs also criticised the menu that was far too fancy and objected to a chocolate truffle dessert. He also expressed his disliking for the White House which cited the president’s fondness for cream pie.
Though Jobs was not that impressed by Obama, later telling Isaacson that his focus on the reasons that things can’t get done “infuriates” him, they kept in touch and talked by phone a few more times. Jobs even offered to help create Obama’s political ads for the 2012 campaign. “He had made the same offer in 2008, but he’d become annoyed when Obama’s strategist David Axelrod wasn’t totally deferential,” writes Isaacson. Jobs later told the author that he wanted to do for Obama what the legendary “morning in America” ads did for Ronald Reagan.
