Does President Obama have the guts to call Americans “lazy” to our faces? Or is he more brave to tear us down a half a world away?
The president twice called Americans “lazy” today as he addressed a group of young leaders in Laos.
“So usually, if you see the environment destroyed, it’s not because that’s necessary for development. It’s usually because we’re being lazy, and we’re not being as creative as we could be about how to do it in a smarter, sustainable way,” Obama said during a town hall meeting.
He also said, “And I believe that the United States is and can be a great force for good in the world. But because we’re such a big country, we haven’t always had to know about other parts of the world.
