"Warned" is vastly different than "predicted." Kindly leave your prejudices off of DealPlus, please.

From the original article:
"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.

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.

I think a lot of people predicted a one-term presidency for Obama ... really, no big thing. So someone famous said the same thing a lot of us thought ... so what?
