Steve Jobs Told Obama: "You're Headed For a One-Term Presidency"

To me, it's not surprising that Jobs supported Obama, as we know he was a staunch Democrat. Still by 2010, Jobs thought that Obama was too anti-business, which is why he predicted he would be a one-termer.

According to Walter Isaacson (via Huffington Post):

...Jobs was not that impressed by Obama, later telling Isaacson that his focus on the reasons that things can't get done "infuriates" him.

This certainly sounds like the Obama we all know - he prefers to blame someone rather than come up with a solution himself.

I hope Jobs' prediction is correct.
