Laziness as problem for the US not attracting new business?

Obama's solution of eliminating competition between the states to attract businesses will make it even harder to attract businesses. From Fox News:

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. . . .

"Because of our federalist system, sometimes a foreign investor comes in and they've got to navigate not only federal rules, but they've also got to navigate state and local governments that may have their own sets of interests. Being able to create if not a one-stop shop, then at least no more than a couple of stops for people to be able to come into the United States and make investments, that's something that we want to encourage," Obama said. . . .

Here are some recent similar statements by Obama.

In a speech last week at a fundraiser in San Francisco, the president said Americans have "lost our ambition, our imagination." In late September, he said that the country had "gotten a little soft." And at a DNC event in September, he said that Americans' "faith" that life would be better for their kids had been "shaken."

Here is an interesting collections comparing Carter to Obama on "malaise."

The pattern of Obama's ignorance via ideology rears it's ugly head once again I see. This is another clear cut case of Freudian Projection, as the entirety of his time in office has been.

Blame Bush, Congress, the American People, CEO's, Republicans, etc., instead of having a backbone and accepting the responsibilty that comes with being the POTUS.

Obama's entire focus has been on politics, and nothing else, and we the people suffer because of this.

I am going to make a prediction here. If Obama wins the next election, these past few years are going to be quite nice in retrospect, as Obama is going to go after our personal liberties, add much more regulation which will further destroy businesses, and surely do his best to remake the U.S. into his twisted vision of a Socialist country that represses citizens, while making sure that politicians that share his ideological idiocy are given a far greater chance to enter into office, while diminishing the chances of those whom oppose socialist doctrines.

Worst case scenario would be Obama declaring martial law and negating election results due to an 'emergency'. I realize that sounds like the ranting of an unstable individual, but his actions now, in pulling out of Afganistan and Iraq may create another 911.

A remote possibility I admit, but what if? Iran set the stage for interference with U.S. Presidential Elections with the timing of the release of the hostages... If I were a leader of another country with a hatred for the U.S. I would make damn sure that there would be one hell of an terrorist attack on U.S. soil just before, or after the election for the sole purpose of keeping Obama in office.

Keeping Obama in office is simply the best way to weaken the U.S., and other countries know this.

It is Obama, and those whom acheive personal gain by keeping him in office, not the American People, whom are lazy.

What I fail to comprehend, is that folks fail to see the pattern here, and will vote for this idiot again... Maybe that's who Obama is talking about.
