So Obama gets to take a whack at us on foreign soil for perhaps the last time. Lazy? Speak about yourself. But that is your projection. Can you imagine any other leader going on foreign soil and dissing his/her citizens? Yet the comment never made a ruffle of news now did it?
President Obama twice on Wednesday suggested to a foreign audience that Americans are in some ways lazier than citizens of other nations.
Speaking at a town hall meeting at Souphanouvong University in Laos, Obama said that Americans can be lazy when it comes to protecting the environment as well as when learning about other cultures.
“Usually, if you see the environment destroyed, it’s not because that’s necessary for development,” Obama said, according to a transcript provided by USA Today reporter Gregory Korte. “It’s usually because we are being lazy, and we’re not being as creative as we could be about how to do it in the smarter, sustainable way.”
Obama has acknowledged in the past that he, too, can be lazy at times.
“There is a deep down, underneath all the work I do, I think there’s a laziness in me,” Obama told Barbara Walters during a December 2011 interview
It starts at 20:30 — his disrespect for us.
The President will hold a Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative (YSEALI) town hall at the Souphanouvong University Auditorium in Luang Prabang, Laos.
