Barack Obama vs. Steve Jobs

Pages: 1 2

Jobs, in contrast, was a titan—perhaps the titan of the digital age. He was clearly a visionary who changed the way people use technology. His death was a national loss. He is surely “one of the few people in any field who can plausibly be compared with America’s greatest inventors,” as some have noted.

Unlike Obama, Steve Jobs advanced the nation’s competitiveness and advanced opportunities for untold numbers of Americans. As Apple CEO, Jobs took Apple to new heights with communications technology like the iPod, iPhone, and iPad.

The only heights to which Obama has taken America are in debt, deficits, and hypocrisy.

Jobs provided employment for hundreds of thousands of Americans, which is immensely more than Obama has done. Jobs’ influence can be seen everywhere. In Arkansas a farmer monitors crops from his fields with his iPhone. A North Carolina father has an app that enables him to communicate with his disabled son. A technology worker in Silicon Valley uses an Apple program to send lectures around the globe. Thousands of troops are using iPhones and the tablet developed by Jobs.

Some of Jobs’ products help Wall Street generate millions of dollars. This has to be much to the displeasure of class-warfare Obama and his Democratic allies.

    To compare the two characters is ridiculous. One of them, OBAMA, is a guy elected to office by an electorate that swooned at his eloquence and believed that this eloquence was indicitive of the man's intellect! They made him their President -a man made choice. They got the President they deserved!
    Steve Jobs was an innovator who did things himself the hard way. He never campaigned to invent what he did but his efforts were rewarded by the consumers he served so well. He understood the theory of "Consumers Sovereignty" and the consumer crowned him with success as a result. When comes such another?
    The electorate is to balme for Obama and his ineptitude. Hopefully they will not make the same mistake twice. Comparison of Obama to Jobs is almost odious!.

      Steve Jobs was a brilliant inventor who made the most of the Free Market Capitalist system, which benefitted millions of Americans and made our lives better. Obama will go down as a total failure to inspire, lead, or create any positive growth or inspirations for America, his record is abysmal!

    This is the most ridiculous, biased, pot full of crap and lies that I have heard this year.

    • Steeloak

      What lies about Steve Jobs are you refering to?

      Mr. Trussel,

      You have here before you the best proof you could ask for that your piece is spot-on, right on target, exactamundo correct. Like with the Tea Party, there's no better evidence of being on the right track than getting vitriol from the Left. Conversely, you know the RINOs by the praise the Marxist-owned mainstream media heaps upon them.

      • trickyblain

        Yes. Vitrol means you are right!

        I'm considered a leftist here at FPM, just not in the real world (e.g., my job at a business advocacy org.). I hate Hitler. Ergo, by your logic, Hitler was right!

    But, but…Steve Jobs getting rich has robbed me! I don't know how but…because he was rich I am poor. It isn't because of a corrupt socialist in the W.H. it's because Jobs was rich. It has nothing to do with the work and technology he has created. By his making money it has lessened my life…somehow. Anyway, it MUST be the fault of the rich. Any of my shortcomings cannot possibly be part and parcel of the leftist education system that raised me or the easy entitlement life I yearn for. My life’s predicament is someone else’s responsibility and since it isn't mine it must be the rich. Lets get ‘em!

      And how is this atttitude any different from FPM — the ultimate victimology publication? Here you find all the world's problems explained by the "Unholy Alliance of Islam and the Left."

      BTW – Jobs made his fortune through innovation and hard work. Many in the banking industry made thier fortunes through fraud and taxpayer funded bailouts. That may be fine for folks that worship the rich regardless of how they became rich, but it's really what these protests are about….you don't see companies that actually produce product being protested.

      StephenD, I thought I was the only on who felt that way. I can't help it that I was not born with a desire to work. Why should people who were born with a work ethic be treated as if they are better than I. I hate this discrimination!

  • trickyblain

    Too bad Steve Jobs never saw it that way about Obama. Otherwise, he probably wouldn't have endorsed him, campaigned for him, and sat on his advisory boards.

    It's no secret that Jobs was a progressive, pot-smoking Democrat. Just like most of our modern visionaries.

    It's unkind to use a person recently deceased as ammo to attack the President.
