Showing once again how clueless he is, the SCOAMF stood in front of a group of business leaders at a meeting in Honolulu and told them they were lazy.
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.
Barry O went on to pull all sorts of reasons out of his butt for why the business environment was so bad in America, save for one. In what has become obvious he stated that it wasn’t the lack of federal intervention that was the problem, rather it was the opposite. He blamed the states for creating the barriers and of course his one size fits all solution involves more federal involvement.
“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.
Yeah, just ask Boeing how that works for them. They built and then wanted to staff a plant in South Carolina until the union griped and Barry O unleashed the hounds at the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), and now two years later South Carolina is still trying to open the plant. How about that oil pipeline that just cost us 2000 jobs because the State Department stepped in and decided at the last hour that the pipeline needs to be routed differently? How about workers in Charlotte being told to move aside during the Democrat convention for outside union labor to be brought in?
The subtle hint dropped to the mayor of Charlotte from union leaders was basically nice city you got here. Be a shame if something happened to it.
That, folks, in a nutshell explains the difference between a liberal’s view on the world and a conservatives view. A liberal wants control consolidated at the highest level possible and a conservative wants power pushed to the lowest level.
