Obama: America has gotten lazy

Whatever the cause of our economic problems, it certainly isn’t President Obama’s policies:

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. . .

He then went on to say things his administration has done like setting up Select USA that organizes government agencies in an attempt to make it easier for foreign investors to set up a plant in the U.S.

What a classic big-government solution. Rather than remove obstacles to commerce, let’s create a new government agency to help businesses manage those obstacles.

UPDATE: Select USA can’t help everyone, I’m sure. I’d be interested to learn how they decide who to help.
