Steve Jobs: Obama "headed for a one-term presidency"

From MacDaily News:

. . . “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,” The Huffington Post reports. “‘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.”

The Huffington Post reports, “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…. 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 was being uncharacteristically charitable. Obama should be impeached - not even one term. From Solyndra to Fisker, from Cash for Clunkers to Fast and Furious, and all the rest of his administration's assorted failures, he needs to go. How much more are we supposed to sit back and take while we wait for the 2012 election?
