HONOLULU - President Obama said that the United States has gotten a "little bit lazy" when it comes to bringing in new businesses in to the states. He made the comments at a CEO summit as part of the APEC conference Saturday, when asked by Boeing CEO James McNerney about looking at the world from a Chinese perspective and what they might consider as impediments to investing.
Obama said it's important to remember that the U.S. is still the largest receiver of foreign investment in the world and things like stability, openness and innovative free market culture are attractive. He also said there are a lot of things that make foreign investors see the U.S. as a great opportunity - like stability, openness, our innovative free market culture.
"But we've been a little bit lazy, I think, over the last couple of decades. We've kind of taken for granted -- well, people will want to come here and we aren't out there hungry, selling America and trying to attract new business into America, Obama said.

This coming from a community organizer with absolutely NO experience running a business himself? Say it ain’t so.../s =.=
Always someone else, eh, Barry?
Where the U.S. “got lazy” was in vetting presidential candidates of a certain party.
Amazing talk coming from a man whose very policies have scared business owners to death.
‘President Obama: U.S. Gotten a Bit “Lazy” on Attracting Businesses’
1) Obamacare scaring the hell of any business wanting to hire
2) Overreaching EPA regulations
3) 200,000 pages of tax forms to fill out
4) Diversity demands
5) Crony Capitalism originating from Congress
There are no words left for my utter contempt of obama and everyone who voted for this communist disaster.
Lazyness has nothing to do with it. RATS like Obama work tirelessly to place impediments in the way of starting and runing businesses.
Why doesn’t this ignorant ass just STFU?
Hey. All he needs to do is put on a tie, stand at a podium, and read from a teleprompter every now and then.
He’d doing his job.
Why aren’t we doing ours?
(What an arrogant buffoon.)
You don’t need special schemes and deals to attract business. Just let freedom reign and they will come.
LOL, is this his new way of blaming Bush? I can only think of one president over the last couple of decades who has made it his mission to scare off new and old business. He will never give up the blame game.
Obama’s hate for:
...has driven his policies to kill or cripple all of the above!
What is it about Maoist oppression that makes people “lazy”?
I think you've summed it up.
” A Little bit lazy”, implies inaction. What is being done in this country is find the best things to do to foster business, then do exactly the opposite.
So lazy we even have a President who goes on Vacation every two seconds.
The golfer in chief should speak for himself. I’ve been working my a$$ off for the past 40 years.
Gee, it has absolutely nothng to do with the idiotic corporate taxation rate does it?
This guy honestly thinks we are all booger eating morons and the media will just hustle his B.S. without batting an eyelash.
