|President Barack Obama,

"We haven't been hungry enough about "selling America" oversees in
order to attract new businesses and foreign investment"
"There are a lot of things that make foreign investors see the U.S. as
a great opportunity -- our stability, our openness, our innovative
free market culture. But we've been a little bit lazy, I think, over
the last couple of decades. We've kind of taken for granted -- well,
people will want to come here and we aren't out there hungry, selling
America and trying to attract new business into America".
