Yet again, Mr. Obama has decided to take the low road, and demeans the American People. Time to add to the Big Obama Bus/Insult list
(ABC News) For the second time in as many months, President Obama has taken the nation that elected him president to task for its own lackadaisical economic performance on the global stage.
Obama told a group of CEOs today that the United States has gotten “lazy” and that America lost its hunger in promoting itself in a global marketplace.
“We’ve been a little bit lazy over the last couple of decades. We’ve kind of taken for granted — ‘Well, people would want to come here’ — and we aren’t out there hungry, selling America and trying to attract new businesses into America,” he told the CEOs who are gathered on the sidelines of the annual Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) meetings, which the United States is hosting this year in Hawaii.

Last September, in an interview with an Orlando, Fla., TV station, Obama made similar remarks, saying, “This a great, great country that had gotten a little soft and we didn’t have that same competitive edge that we needed over the last couple of decades. … We need to get back on track.”
So, to break it down, we’ve been lazy because we aren’t actively going out and saying “hey, bring your money to America and create jobs. Yeah, ignore that high tax rate, the monumental and stifling regulations” to people around the world. Obama is a disgrace to the 43 presidents before him, and that includes Jimmy Carter, who at least never insulted the American People while president.
