Obama attended the annual Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) meetings, which was hosted this year by the U.S. in Hawaii. Once again, Obama served as an embarrassment for his country, and spoke disparagingly of its people.
“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.”
How utterly false and inappropriate, especially when coming from a president whose actions (or in-actions) throughout his presidency and especially the last week have explained why he’s always voted present as senator.
After delaying a decision regarding the Keystone Pipeline project which will create thousands of jobs and provide America with fuel from Canada, a friendly country, the Obama administration has finally made public their decision … to delay the decision once again until 2013! This delay doesn’t stem from laziness, though that would be bad enough. Rather, it has been deliberately delayed until after the 2012 elections so that Obama doesn’t receive too heavy of a backlash from the unions and public. Once he wins his reelection he can then refuse the entire project due to environmental concerns without giving a hoot to the angry masses.
The Obama administration has also been delivering prolonged delays to hand out permits for offshore drilling despite having removed the moratorium placed after the BP oil spill. Previously approved projects were forced to submit and wait to be re-approved, causing continuous delays and resulting in ten deep water rigs having left the Gulf of Mexico after having received contracts elsewhere.
Obama’s expertise in delaying legislation crucial to the well-being of the economy while speeding up legislation crucial to destroying the economy and country leaves one puzzled whether these occurrences are due to laziness, ineptness, cowardly behavior, or purposeful calculations.
Either way, while Obama has scolded American entrepreneurs who are successful despite the many obstacles and regulations government has placed upon them, he pretended to be oblivious to the scoldings directed at him from the Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper who spent some time discussing a possible increase in exportation of oil to China with Chinese president Hu Jintao. These discussions have only come about due the Obama’s decision to once again delay the seven billion dollar pipeline.
So who’s at fault for less foreign business on American shores/offshores? The average hardworking American or a guy named Barack Obama whose only worries are his reelection and his next golf game?
Here’s a newsflash Mr. President. Since you consider us to be so lazy, don’t expect us to take the effort to vote for you. That would be too difficult for us lazy guys. We will rather spend hours of our time and energy promoting whoever your eventual opponent will be. You will then be free to lazy upon the beaches in Hawaii without feeling compelled to create excuses for us “lazy” Americans.
