“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."Lazy? The problem is we've become lazy?!
Here is the architect of our ruination, whose party presided over driving the nation over the cliff, and after finishing the job by sinking nearly a trillion dollars into worthless pension bailouts for Federal and State employee unions and throwing all kinds of money at so called "green energy" firms that went under before they could even produce a product, we have this guy saying the problem is we've become lazy?!!
What is the current business climate here in America, Mr. President? What about the United States makes it attractive for business? Say oil exploration and development - that's an excellent international business. What did we do to BP? Or, how about the oil industry in general in the gulf? No, huh? Well, how about aircraft manufacturing? What become of Boeing's efforts to open the plant they built in South Carolina? What about corporate tax policy? Environmental regulations? Drug research and development? Auto industry? Banking? Is the Untied States of America a place where people would want to come to do business?
It's not laziness, Mr. President. People here in the United States are as keen to succeed as they have ever been. But when you make a point of putting your boot on our necks while you spend the nation into oblivion, word gets around.
