And yet another fine example of how inept Obama is?

President Obama called on U.S. businesses to do more to help grow the economy, saying that while the unemployment rate is getting better and jobs are being added, the U.S. needs "to get there faster."

"Businesses have a responsibility, too," said Obama in his weekly address on Saturday. "If we make America the best place to do business, businesses should make their mark in America. They should set up shop here, and hire our workers, and pay decent wages, and invest in the future of this nation. That's their obligation."

  • I would expect as much from someone that has never worked in the private sector. He just doesn't get it.

  • I could expand on the above and find fault, but as it stands it is reasonable.

  • "Businesses have a responsibility, too," said Obama in his weekly address on Saturday. "If we make America the best place to do business, businesses should make their mark in America. They should set up shop here, and hire our workers, and pay decent wages, and invest in the future of this nation.

    Well, I do agree with this...but the only problem is, we don't really make anything here anymore, and what we do make can't compete with China and India..because our workers need to make more than $2 a day. I don't have a solution for this either... and although our president is right in saying this, I think he's screaming into the wind.
    Here's my 2 cents: America should start with teaching our children to be productive citizens. People need to stop being afraid to tell their kids that they are turning into lazy leaches, and that they need to get off their ass and DO something. Then, we need to help those innovators among us.
