Video of President Obama calling America a “bit lazy” is the new engine behind GOP attacks.
Republican presidential candidates Mitt Romney and Rick Perry both ripped Obama this week for his remarks, which he made during a speech during last week’s Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation conference in Hawaii.
Although Obama was referring to America’s pursuit of foreign investment, his detractors immediately pounced.

“Can you believe that? That’s what our president thinks is wrong with America. That Americans are lazy?” says a denim-clad Perry in a new campaign ad released Wednesday evening in Iowa and New Hampshire.
Perry makes the remarks after a clip of Obama plays of the president saying, “We’ve been a little bit lazy, I think over the last couple of decades.”
