Obama wrong about calling Americans ‘soft’ and ‘lazy’

With regard to our president’s recent remarks calling Americans “soft” and “lazy,” what?

Our son started his business at age 16. Now, 40 years later, he continues to work over 60 hours a week in his Michigan plant. His product lines call for constant innovation with changes in structure and design.

These goods serve the U.S. market and are exported to over half a dozen countries. This type of scenario is duplicated by the millions in our great country.

Mr. Obama, stop playing the blame game. You are “running on empty.”
