Not exactly what you want here from your leader. But certainly what I would expect from a president who always finds some reason to blame someone else for our economic malaise. This one via Gateway pundit. Video below the fold.
After you listen to this video ask yourself just who is it who’s gone soft. Who was it who has lost its competitive edge? Would it be the 14 million people who were unemployed? Would it be the millions who are underemployed? Or is he talking about his supporters? My guess is the reason America’s lost its comparative edge is because the government keeps its boot on the throats of ingenuity and industriousness.
Gateway points us to this article the Wall Street Journal. The video is from WESH-TV in Florida. Your comments are welcome. Remember if you love him and stop being so gosh darn lazy.
“This is 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,” Mr. Obama said in response to a question about the country’s economic future. “We need to get back on track.”
Mr. Obama has faced heavy criticism for his handling of the economy, and the high unemployment rate –9.1%– is threatening his re-election bid.
Despite his concern, Mr. Obama said he wouldn’t trade positions with any country on Earth. “We still have the best universities, the best scientists, best workers in the world; the most dynamic economic system in the world,” he said. “We just need to bring all those things together.”
After being told the other day that he’s the antichrist, I can understand why the young president is trying to deflect criticism on his disciples.
