Krauthammer: Obama Has "Ill-Concealed Contempt" For America

Syndicated columnist and FOX News contributor Charles Krauthammer responds to President Obama calling the U.S. "lazy."

"Well, no one is asking him to go out there and asking him to be a jingoistic cheerleader. But when you call your own country 'lazy' when you are abroad and you call it unambitious and soft when you're home, I think what you are showing is not tough love, but ill-concealed contempt," Krauthammer said on FOX News' "Special Report."

"Obama is ready to blame everybody except himself for the lousy economy. And the lack of investment. Look, why are people reluctant to invest? We have the highest corporate tax rate in the world, in the industrialized world. Obama has spoken about it. It's the one issue on which the Republicans would have agreed on lowering that rate, eliminating loopholes. In three years in office, he's done nothing. He has an NLRB trying to shut down a $1 billion plant Boeing has constructed, as a favor to Obama's union allies. People look abroad and say this isn't a place I want to do business. Its his issues, his over-regulation over taxation and all the red tape he has added. And now he blames Americans' laziness. I think it's unseemly."
