Obama: Steve Jobs Was a Visionary

President Barack Obama mourned on Wednesday the passing of Apple founder Steve Jobs.

“Steve was among the greatest of American innovators — brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world and talented enough to do it,” Obama said in a statement.

“The world has lost a visionary,” he added. “And there may be no greater tribute to Steve’s success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented.”
