This is Mitt Romney's latest stupid remark: "Sometimes I just don't think that President Obama understands America," Romney told spectators at a South Carolina factory that produces corporate signs. "Now I say that because this week, or was it last week, he said that Americans are lazy. I don’t think that describes America."
Obama delivered his "lazy" remark on Saturday to a group of CEOs at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation meetings in Hawaii, where he labeled America as lacking the necessary fire to promote itself in the global arena.
"We've been a little bit lazy over the last couple of decades," Obama said. "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."
