Barack Obama vs. Steve Jobs – The contrast between an economic taker and a giver to the economy

Barack Obama vs. Steve Jobs – The contrast between an economic taker and a giver to the economy

The philosophies and accomplishments of two famous Americans are strikingly different. One has taken from us; the other has given to us.

Barack Obama​ is the symbol of socialistic incompetence run amok. He has stolen our security. The late Steve Jobs​ of entrepreneurial fame gave us the promise of innovation and a brighter life.

Obama rejected the American characteristic of exceptionalism. Jobs epitomized American exceptionalism at its most productive. Obama is driven by bureaucratic planning and narcissism. Jobs was driven by individual initiative, personal responsibility, and consumer needs to achieve national prosperity.

The National Review’s deputy managing editor Kevin Williamson took it one step further, contrasting the Apple founder’s innovation with the ennui of the “Occupy Wall Street” movement:

N]ever has the divide between the iPhoneworld and the politics world been so clear: I saw a bunch of people very well-served by their computers and telephones (very often Apple products) but undeniably shortchanged by our government-run cartel education system. And the tragedy for them — and for us — is that they will spend their energy trying to expand the sphere of the ineffective, hidebound, rent-seeking, unproductive political world, giving the… politicians…an even stronger whip hand over the Steve Jobses and Henry Fords—and we will be the poorer for it.

The Obama failures keep piling up. There are too many to count, probably because some have yet to come to light. But the overhaul of the country’s health care system probably leads the pack. ObamaCare has added to the $14 trillion dollar debt and the job-stagnant economy. The stock market yo-yo, bankers’ reluctance to lend and businesses’ fear of hiring can be attributed to Democrat policy uncertainties, along with the entanglement of regulations.

Just a smattering of Obama’s other failures include: faith in his attorney general, who may well be responsible for the so-called “Fast and Furious” gun running scandal; the president’s empty hope of changing the energy environment and creating jobs with costly “green” projects; Obama’s trusted advisers, from Rev. Wright, to Bill Ayers​, to Van Jones to Valerie Jarrett, to George Soros​, identifies the radical anti-Americanism that has guided his decisions.               More
