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.
